Ideal for those traveling by train

Location in a mall attached to the central station made this a good choice for one night in Oslo. Breakfast at the adjacent restaurant offered various choices. Room was not large or elegant, more of a basic, business traveler type accommodation.

Excellent Location

While it was a bit confusing to locate the hotel by walking through a shopping center, the location couldn't be better! Right outside the door is the major tourist thoroughfare and easy access to trains, buses, and trams. Everything is super expensive in Oslo, so, while not inexpensive, the location and value was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and adequate for three. Breakfast at the Egon was excellent.

Convenience in the heart of Oslo

Could not be more conveniently situated, but you have to look hard for it as the entrance is in the shopping mall of the central train station. Breakfast was not included. Rooms were spacious. A great jumping off place for sightseeing as the tram is right outside.

Wonderful base camp

We used the hotel as a base for side trips so having the train and tram close by was very helpful. We could have used a car rental dealership close by. Even though the trains, trams, and buses were practically right outside our window, the sound was not a problem.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The breakfasts were wonderful with a huge selection of items. It was a short walk to the opera house and the waterfront.

Oslo Scandic Byporen Hoel

We were only in Oslo 1 night, so it wasn't that big a deal that the bed was a double, but there was only single bedding on it . . . one pillow, one twin blanket. we found another pillow in the closet, but the additional comforter was dirty & didn't have a duvet on it. there was also only one towel in the bathroom. I guess 'twin' means different things in different countries -- I thought we were getting twin beds . . .

Good in Oslo

We arrived by traini from the airport. Signage from the main train terminal was not sufficient to guide us to the hotel. We had to ask directions. Once at the hotel, everything was fine. We enjoyed our room's location and requested the same room for our return visit to Oslo. The breakfasts provided were good, but on our first trip to the dining area, we didn't find the second floor site for breakfast. Again, we had to ask. On other trips, we knew where to go and enjoyed the wide variety of offerings

Oslo at the Train Station

Coming in from the airport one day and leaving by train the next day, the Station Hotel was perfect. The proximity to money exchange and ticket information was also helpful. THe breakfast was all that could be asked for

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Location at the railroad station was a definite plus. Proximity to the Travelers Information and the central transit station was also helpful
