Checking into Scandic Sjolyst during a week of training in the immediate vincinity, I was surprised to find the hotel quite worn and weary. I stayed in a 6th floor room, and while it was spacious and clean, lighting was quite poor and the bed left a bit to be desired. To top it all off, one of the two elevators servicing the 8 floors went out of commission on my third day and remained out of commission until I checked out at the end of the week.
Breakfast was excellent, on the other hand (except, I couldn't find spoons for the eggs - but I was never good at searching). A beer in the bar ran a staggering 99NOK, so I never had more than one, and given the prices, I had my dinners and bevvies elsewhere.
I won't say the hotel is terrible. It just doesn't come close enough to my expectations of being modern and polished as both photos and the surrounding area would suggest. I will likely check in again for similar business, but unless they break out some tools and paintbrushes, I'm afraid I won't quite get my money's worth.
