This hotel is a best in class example of what a three star hotel can provide. A late "Norway in a Nutshell" train ride from Bergen found me walking along the pedestrian Karl Johans gate past the Saturday night partiers spilling out of the bars. The starkly modern hotel was full, but my room was ready. A tight modular bed fitted into the window wall and assorted hooks replaced closets. Although their bicycles for loan were fully reserved , the helpful desk clerk led me through a back door to a neighboring sister Scandic to arrange a reservation.for the following day. A major benefit when my pre-arranged city bicycle tour fell through. The palace, museums and Aker Brygge all were within easy walking distance. Breakfast was well presented and the guests trended towards Scandinavian couples and families.

Room Tip: Reserve a bike ahead of arrival.

Overprized hotel with very small rooms. Not worth the money at all. Badly staff and service..Had to pay much extra for new bigger room. Mostly on other hotels with good service , they give u a new room ofcourse

First of all the location of this hotel, is one of Oslo best!!! The staff at this hotel, is very kindly. Breakfast is good. The room is very small. You have to climb over the other person to get to the other side of the bed.
