Scandic Vulkan

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We liked the location of this hotel, close to a smart food hall and a 20 minute walk to the city centre. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the staff member who put us in a large room with a panoramic view of the city, as we were there for 6 nights, and combining a business trip with some days off. The range and quality of the food at breakfast was excellent - a real treat.

Great stay in an arty room. Very clean well designed room. Wide choice of food on offer for breakfast and staff very helpful. About 20-30 mins easy walk from the centre station in a hipster vibe area.

I can easily recomend this place. Not just because of the short distance to "mathallen" but also because of the nice surroundings and good food. I will also recomend people to try the somewhat different room "Friminuttet". Truly does not make you feel like you are in a hotelroom at all but more like home :)

love the location right next to the foodhall. The bus stop was very close less than 5 minute walk. Its our first time in Oslo and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was amazing with so many selections of food from smoked fish, to gluten free menu. Definitely worth the price to stay in this hotel.

The hotel is clean and in good shape, better than most of Scandic hotels. The view over the market is impressive. Nothing for those afraid of heights. The food at the hotel is “Italian wannabe” but just go outside and you have better choices, although the food ain’t bad, just wannabe ;) The room was big enough, I got upgraded, clean and quiet.

Like with all hotels, I am always able to find something to be not fully satisfied with. However, I enjoyed my stay at Scandic Vulkan immensely. The bed and the pillows are amazing so a good nights sleep is guaranteed. Lovely breakfast buffet, very friendly staff, overall cleanliness is good, and they are environmentally conscious which is a big plus. The only thing I found unsettling is the towels, they smelled a little weird to me. My partner didn't think so, but I found they reminded me of vinegar scent. Also wished to find some slippers or floor warming in the bathroom, as I found it quite cold in the morning.

Not impressed, we regret booking this hotel for our trip. You could get more for the money somewhere else in Oslo. Superior rooms are like standard rooms in other hotels at Scandic. They do not have refrigerators. The location is excellent, so the price is probably more for the location.

The room was not ready, 2 hours after we were supposed to check in. The rest of our stay, was very good! Excellent service, and excellent located! I can stay here many more times, no doubt about that...!

We selected the Scandic Vulkan to stay during our trip to Oslo to celebrate my wife´s 60th birthday because we´d stayed there once before and liked it. It is close to the big food hall, Mathallen, the Grünerløkka area, lots of pubs, bars and restaurants, and close enough to the center of the city to be reasonable (a 15-minute stroll through neighborhoods with late 19th-century architecture). There is a big parking garage nearby that has electric car plug-ins and rapid charges (a plus for we who drive el-cars). The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only criticism is that the breakfast room got a bit chaotic, with hoards of guests and a loud crying baby, but, okay, that is simply life.

The hotel has a perfect location for party and nightlife. Close to løkka and good restaurants. It's in a cool area, and near everything thats important to me. I have stayed there before and will most likely stay there next time I'm in Oslo allso. Good breakfast and service. Highly recommended
