“Great hotel! Very central, but still a quiet neighbourhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

The Scandic Hotel Solli in the middle of Oslo was a great experience :)
It's recently been renovated, and the standard was good and everything was clean and nice. The room was much larger than I expected, the personnel was friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was tasty. And the wifi was free.
I will recommend this hotel if you are looking for something central Oslo.

The hotel is alright. Nice rooms and nice staff. The location is ok but not optimal when going out downtown area. The surroundings is a bit boring. The key card is made of wood for the environment! Ok dinner but a bit expensive.

Hi!

Thank you for a good review. You said many nice things so I was surprised that er only got a 3*. To be honest, as a Oslo person, the surroundings when it comes to nightlife, restaurants, mixed with silent surroundings - this area is very good. Our goal will be to give better information about this to our guests.

Hopefully you will come back.

My family stayed here in four rooms for three nights. Each room was well-appointed, clean, and larger than expected. Unlike other reviews, we had plenty of hot water and enjoyed the heated tile floors and heated towel racks in the bathroom which made for a spa-like experience. There were flat-screen TV's with plenty of channels in English for my kids to watch age-appropriate television (Disney Channel), which was a bonus. The staff we interacted with were kind, helpful, pleasant, most spoke English, and all were very responsive to our requests. The morning breakfast buffet was extensive in its selections; the food was delicious with a large variety of options, most organic and many gluten-free options as well. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was very good as well, although the menu was changing the week we were there so some items were no longer available and the new new menu's were not yet out. This hotel offers underground garage parking with in and out privileges and has an easy location to get to in the city, unlike some of the other Oslo hotels which can be difficult to reach due to one-way streets, construction, or just simply a busy location. We found we were walking-distance to many of the Oslo tourist attractions as well and the location on the west side of Oslo seems to be a safe place to be out walking, even late in the evening. The one negative was that

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for a conference. The staff was friendly, but a bit on the quiet side. Just enough information but not really a hearty welcome. The room itself was ok & clean, although small - smaller than I'm used to in Scandinavia. The desk was really not more than a night stand so I could not work comfortably on my computer. I also lacked an iron board in my room. Breakfast was nice and offers the usual choices. Would consider coming here again next time, especially because of the quiet and friendly surroundings. 5 minutes from the town hall and the harbor, 10 minutes from central station, national theatre or royal palace.

Hi!

Thank you for your review!

We have a few small rooms, most are spacious with a bigger desk, and more space - it seems that you did get one of the smaller ones, im sorry - it has been some very busy weeks the last month.

We aim to give a hearty welcome and I will use your feedback to keep pushing it.

You are very welcome back to us.

For business travel, I had to stay in this hotel again. I thouht it might have improved. Well only slightly. Dinner service was very slow.

The refurbishment is finished however it could have been designed and implemted better. My room was OK however I touched the lamp at the table and it fell off the wall. I am sure the staff are trying their best but in this case 2+2 = 3.

Hi!

Thank you for another review, as last time it is very hard reading.

The lamps are being changed, and we have installed shelves at most of our rooms now.

Im terrible sorry that the service in our restaurant was slow, this is a big focus for us to improve - we will manage.

Hopefully you will try us again - you are very welcome.

I stayed in this hotel during the May 17th weekend aka Norwegian National day.
The hotel is situated at a walking distance of almost everything, but yet in a quiet area.
The harbor is only 5mins away.
The breakfast is huge and no need to lunch after that !
The rooms are modern and clean.

I slept one night at the hotel in a Superior room.
The room was spacious and nice, but when I took a shower there was no warm water.

The breakfast is ok with fried and boiled eggs, bacon, cheese, ham and other usual breakfast food. Some serials also.
