Scandic St Olavs Plass

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We'd booked a room and an extra bed for child. The receptionist had confirmed this by email, but upon arrival the reserved room was smaller, w/o extra bed. Same receptionist. She then kept us waiting a full hour (at 22:00 w/ small child) before giving us a smaller room! Fortunately hotel management finally fixed the situation, but it was a bad start. However, the location is great, and breakfast was very good. Hopefully this start was just bad luck.

The location is very good with easy walk to harbor, city hall, history museum etc. Breakfast is excellent -- fresh choices, attractively served. But, there was a major problem. I booked a family room for four-- two adults and two children. The photo, that is on the website, shows an acceptable room. However, the room that we were given was much smaller than that pictured and was not acceptable. When I raised the problem with the receptionist, I was told that all they could suggest was that I rent two rooms instead of one. Faced with no other choices, I did that, thereby incurring additional, unexpected cost. It happens that I reserved the same room at the Scandic Strand in Bergen, and it was exactly as pictured on the website and perfectly adequate. I subsequently contacted Scandic and have received no response, although I did hear from another Scandic Hotel on another matter.

Location is good, if you want a cafe, kebab, chinese or grocery store- its nearby, Couple of hundred meters from Nationaltheatre metro station (to and from airport). Centre is nearby, walking distance (15 min). Very good hotel, highly recommend it. Room can be a bit cleaner though- for perfectionist as i am:) It was ok.

Just two blocks from the art museum. Quiiet neighborhood. Walkable from bus station. 9 minutes walk to two metro stops. Clean but small rooms, but we were on vacation and not staying in our rooms much. Terrific value based on rate that we paid. Breakfast buffet options were extensive and all good.

Great Breakfastbuffet. Also for peoble who are eatin vegan or have allergies. Most of the Staff is not really doing a good job making you feel welcome. Some were very nice and helpfull some would not even look at you or let you wait for ever until you can get your order eventhough there where not many people. Room was cleand poorley.

The location of the hotel was great - 3 mins from the National Gallery, close to public transport, walking distance to the harbour. Staff helpful and friendly; breakfast? Out of 10, I'd give it 15!! Would definitely stay here again.

Nice and central hotel, quiet and clean. Perfect breakfast and the food in the restaurant was tastefull, both for children and adults. Nice straff. Nice roms, some with balkony. Would like to comeback back

Perfect location in the middle of everything. Close to the main street, Close to Frognerparken, Close to the eastern side of the city. Quiet yard With not much traffic. Perfect service. Nice room, excellent breakfast. Nothing to complain about.

A peacefull hotel with good location. Just a few minutes to walk to Karl Johan and the castle. The staff was very helpfull. The Room was very nice and the bed comfortable. After a breakfast wich consisted a lot of different kind of foods, we were ready to explore the city.

Great central convenient location. Short walking distance to the city center. Well equipped comfortable and decorated rooms and lovely shower. Excellent breakfast, so much choice. The staff was helpful and friendly.
