Scandic Vulkan

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

A lovely hotel in a hip location, the Scandic Vulkan was just right for our overnight stay. The staff were pleasant, the room quiet and cosy. The breakfast was amazing, with a huge choice on offer, all fresh and of a high quality-it sets you up for the day ahead!

We really enjoyed our stay here! Staff is very friendly, the rooms are not too small, clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. We just had troubles with the air condition which we could not switch off, also the outside blinds seemed to have a life of their own. The location is okay, one can walk to the city center or just take a bus. Breakfast was exceptionally good! All in all we had a very agreeable stay in this hotel!

Nice rooms, very helpful and friendly staff. Nice location Indoor parking next door. Not happy with breakfast, difficult to get a table, and sharing a long table like in a cantina is not what you expect. Customers should also know there are a couple of concert venues very closeby, plus bars en restaurants underneath the hotel, so if you are not parttaking in that, sleep might be difficult until early hours.

A very good choice in Oslo. The location is excellent, close to good restaurants and just in front of Mathallen Oslo. The breakfast is great! the highlight of the hotel. The rooms could be a little larger but they are very clean and comfortable.

Although we specifically asked during check-in that we preferred to receive a room which wasn't located at the ground floor, unfortunately we received a room at the ground level. The room was extremely noisy. There was a glass door in our room that gave direct access to the outside street! We had an awful sleeping experience as the street was traffic heavy throughout the night and there were many loud street pedestrians passing us by only 1 m from our bed! I didn't sleep at all.

Nice hotel, decent location in up and coming area. Worst breakfast in Oslo. Mayhem and chaos in the breakfast area. Closes way to early, not to the convenience of their guests. Poor cleanliness, next time please clean the table before assigning us to it.
