Scandic Hamar

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Scandic Hamar is about 800 meters from the Hamar railway station. Note that you won’t find the closest way to walk by Google maps since the entrance to the hotel is on the “other” side. Instead walk along Parkgata and you’ll reach the hotel in less than 10 minutes. This is a pretty basic hotel, but have everything I needed. Bed was comfortable and room was big enough. Free and fast Wi-Fi. I liked the breakfast. It had everything I expected plus something extra like waffles.

I didn't do much in the hotel but sleep and eat breakfast, but I'm overall very satisfied. the breakfast buffet was varied and really good, not that I personally need that, but it also seemed very alergic-friendly :) the service was also excellent :)

Stayed at the hotel for two nights for work, the staff in the lobby were very welcoming and nice. Since I had ordered two nights separately I kindly asked them to combine the two nights. Luckily they were able to with no complications. The "common" areas of the hotel is very modern and Scandic like. The room was alright but the bathroom and towels had some stains (The sink was yellow near the drain which doesn't give the best first impression. Other than that the room itself was very clean and the chance to hook your laptop up via HDMI is a nice touch if you don't like whats on TV (Not that many TV channels to chose from).| All in all, I had a nice stay, the breakfast was what you expect to get at a hotel and I have nothing negative to say about it but nor anything exceptional about it. Location is very good, in Hamar everything is very spread out all over the place. But this hotel got a decent location near the CC mall and around 15-minute walk from Mjøs.a

My husband and I ordered a superior extra room and looked forward to the little extra. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. There was water cooker and a jar of instant coffee, but no spoon to scoop or stir with and only one coffee cup, only one glass in the bathroom. There were no bathrobes and I had to ask for the Kr. 50,00 voucher. A total waist of money to upgrade, take a standard room and enjoy an excellent breakfast.

Mid range hotel with a fine location. Close to the center and the stadium. Nice personnel. Solid breakfast in a bit dull setting. Would definitely recommend it for others staying in Hamar for leisure purposes.

Stayed here for 4 days for work. Room had to be changed because of stained urine on the toilet and dirty bathroom. The reception personnel was very kind and helpful. Empty champagne bottles outside in the snow when you arrive leaves a bad impression and so does the smoking corner which was cleaned once in 4 days. The staff in the breakfast room should be more efficient, some of them are like walking dead when moving around and tables are full of dirty cups and cutlery from other guests. The restaurant served really good food but if you arrive on a Sunday it’s closed. The service and staff in the restaurant were kind and friendly.

The cleaning of the room was bad, found old tobacko on the floor. Some of the design on the bathrooms was negativ duo too The shower. .... The breakfast was ecxelente and kindnes of the staff is good.

What I like about the Scandic hotels is that the rooms are very sleek. Not carpets on the floor and clean lines. Add to that a very new bathroom with heating in the floor and ample place to store my items, and I am a happy girl. I also liked the three different choices for lighting around the bed, so it was easy to read a book without too much light. The restaurant ran out of almost half their mains and they had only one dessert for both lunch and dinner - so there goes one of the stars. Most important, the room was impeccably clean.

Location not far away from train station. Room spacious and very clean. Electric type incline bed mattress makes reading at bed time very comfortable. Plenty of food choices for breakfast. Staff pleasant and helpful.

We were happy with the room, and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds. Friendly staff in the reception and fine location with walking distance to the center. Very disappointed about the breakfast. Nothing was freshly prepared, but loads of dried out food on the buffet, despite that we came early (around 7.30) to eat. Sad dining area without any set tables or decoration. All together a bit of a disappointing end to the night at the hotel...
