We stayed for 3 nights in May. We loved this place. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was amazing and location unbeatable. You are in the heart of the city within easy walking distance to everything. When I analyze reviews, I look for things that are repeated by multiple guests. We paid a little extra for a larger room, since many found the smallest rooms to be just that...small. Our room was very large and comfortable and included a couch. We did not have any kind of view, but because we were in the back of the hotel, our room was very quiet (I had requested a quiet room). Even in the heart of the city, we slept with our windows open and never heard any noise. We have only good memories of our time at the Scandic Karl Johan. Other details:
Shower: Good water pressure, spacious, plenty of hot water
Outlets: Plenty for plugging in chargers at night
Elevators: FAST. We were on the 7th floor and never had to wait longer than 30 seconds for an elevator. There is only one, so I kind of wondered if that would be a problem. NO it was not!.
Staff: Everyone was so nice and friendly.
Extras: The free wifi worked really good...even on the 7th floor. They have a machine with free coffee and hot chocolate 24 hours a day. We made full use of it!
We are budget travelers and found this hotel to be a good value (We booked non refundable price on booking.com We got a good rate, particularly when you factor in the large breakfast)
