Knowing that my daughter and I would be arriving on a late flight for our first visit to Oslo, I deliberately chose the Byporten for its proximity to the station. The transfer from airport to station to hotel was a doddle. The double room, though small, was well laid out, and

My first visit to Oslo, no orientation for the city, I step out of the fast train from the airport and there it is. Brilliant location, walking distance to the Opera House and most other sites of interest in this elegant city. Reception was nice and fast, arrived early and the

Have travelled to Oslo for several times now. Each time we stayed at Scandic Byporten. Perfect location next to the Mainstation, a short stroll away from Karl Johann, two shopping-center within two minutes walk and the best breakfast of the world - at Egon. Scandic Byporten is

Hi Roland, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us, we need guests like you to be able keep it up as you mention and improve our services and product. It is with great sadness I am reading that you feel we are loosing grip. With regards to the maintenance, this is an ongoing daily job we are doing in all our rooms. After the renovation in 2015, it is of highest priority to maintain the good standard, something we clearly haven't been able to keep with your room. I will address your comments to my colleagues in the maintenance department and we will hopefully have this rectified as soon as possible. The sugar/creamer/coffe should of course be replenished daily, I will make sure that any misunderstandings with regards to this routine are solved immediately. With regards to the gym, it looks like the air-refreshener system needs better monitoring. I will make sure that the external company that handles it will receive the information and that it will be reduced, we don't want our guests to get a headache when they are being healthy. What perhaps hurts the most is that you didn't feel the service was at the level you should be able to expect from us. We can indeed see if a guest has stayed with us before, however this is not as easily shown as we would want to, I have addressed this issue to the IT department and are crossing my fingers that they will be able to fix it. Having said that, you should - no matter what IT-system we use, be given a warm and heartful welcome. As the General Manager, I have the ultimate responsibility that team is well trained in these basic things at all times, something I clearly have failed in doing. For that I would like to forward my deepest apologies. I fully understand that your trust in us has weakened, however nobody would be happier than me if you decided to give us a last chance, you have my word on that I will do whatever there is in my power to rectify the constructive comments you have given us. I would be so happy if you could take the time to contact me via email, mikael.pohjonen@scandichotels.com next time you are planning a visit to Oslo. Hoping to hear from you! Warm regards, Mikael Pohjonen General Manager

The hotel is attached to the central railway station in Oslo. Its a good hotel with everything you need as business traveller. The taxistop is almost in front of the hotel, very convenient. Breakfast and room are all good. Very close is the station with many shops.

Very centrally located hotel and good breakfast at the adjacent restaurant Egon. The room we rented for 3 nights was type "Superior" (room 645), one should expect good standard. The room was fine there, but the mattresses in the bed were very bad. The back worked more and more,

Hi Anna Mary, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, it is highly appreciated. Although it literally hurts to read about your experience here. We do not wish any guest to leave us with the feeling you did. I don't know if you informed us about the bad mattresses during the stay but I would like to forward my deepest apologies if we were unable to find another room or mattress for you. I would happily arrange with a different mattress for you if you decide to come back to us. If so, send me an email in advance to mikael.pohjonen@scandichotels.com so that we can figure out what mattress type you prefer. Hoping to hear from you! Warm regards, Mikael Pohjonen General Manager

Hi - sorry I can’t answer about the air-con. We stayed in February when it wasn’t an issue for us. Check out the summer temperatures in Oslo to see what they are likely to be. The hotel is right by the station and bus and tram stops, so it was busy outside at all times. I wasn’t worried at any time during our short stay there. Standard rooms in the Scandic are small - fine for an overnight stay but I wouldn’t want to stay there any longer. What size room have you booked and how long do you plan to stay? The hotel is directly accessible from the station which is a huge bonus. Hope this helps.

If I recall correctly the answer is yes. We made coffee in the room and also available in the foyer.
