We were headed to Gothenburg, Sweden to celebrate our wedding anniversary this saturday, but figured the drive from Bergen was a little long in one go, so we put in a night in Oslo in between. We chose the hotel initially because we've had pleasant stays with Scandic hotels before. Placement: the hotel seems localized in an industrialized part of... More

I can really recommend this hotel to everyone who doesn't care if the hotel is in the city center or not. You can reach metro station in 3 minutes walk.

The hotel 5 minutes from the T-bann station by foot, only taxi possible at 3 a.m. to reach the airport bus or flytoget. But very nice personel and tight windows preventing the noice from the near speedway road.

We enjoyed the stay very much but most of all we appreciated the help of Gunnar and Mustafa late at night when we had a problem with our luggage and they went out of their way to help us. It made the stay in this clean, comfortable hotel with an unbelievably big and delicious buffet breakfast, unforgettable.
