Scandic Holmenkollen Park
Ranked #32 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Reviewed 23 December 2012

I stayed in the hotel due to work. The view is superb, interior nice, meeting rooms efficient although very warm. Lunch buffet is really nice. I was taken aback by the choice of seafood. Dinner at night better than expected. Unfortunately the room was very small, bathroom cramped and bathtub lacking enamel in several places. Sliding door was not hinged properly and was dangling from the top. Would have gotten a rating of four, but the room left it as a 3.

The breakfast is properly the best I have had in a hotel in Europe so far.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. The rest is overlooking a shady back yard.

The Holmenkollen gazes out majestically over Oslo and far beyond, into the bay toward Drobak, East toward Lillestrom and Southwest toward Drammen. It is very easy to reach by the metro, which winds its way up the hill from the city centre for just 30 NOK. As others have said, just behind is the most stunning ski jump and if you take a walk up the hill into the ski area, you will find another large one and an old wooden one in the woods. The staff are quite excellent. They are gracious and helpful. The restaurants are very pleasing. A standard carvery that also delivers breakfast and then a top quality restaurant serving a 7 course meal with fine wine. The spa is simple but beautiful, with all the bits you can see on the website and a superbly peaceful resting area. Our room was excellent: big bed, sofa, armchairs, etc, plus a great view. Look out because even if you use the TV just to watch the news, it will cost you.

Room Tip: Ask to see them and make sure you ask for a view when booking. To get excellent sleep quality, open...

Very nice location of the hotel, but it soon disapered when I entered the room. Anyway it was a very good experience, specially the staff and the food. The perfect conference hotel, a little to far from the city centre if you want to explore Oslo.

Holmenkollen Park Hotel lies half an hour outside Oslo. Or rather half an hour Above Oslo, as it lies next to the famous ski jump arena up at the top of Holmenkollen. So the hotel offers stunning views over the city, the Oslofjord and neighboring counties. A part of the hotel is an old wooden building which has been extremely well renovated, an other parts are more mundane "modern" rooms and facilities. I slept in the newest part, and had a room with a fantastic view. I'd recommend asking for that part of the hotel at a couple of hundred ironers extra.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view in the newest part of the hotel. The rooms are much more modern, and the...

I attended a 2 days meeting in this hotel and it was a very good experience.
The rooms are well kept and confortable.
The breakfast is just excellent every morning.
The whole place is cosy and the view on Oslo is beautiful.

The only "bad" surprise was the pizza on the first night... it seem the only "tomato couli" available in the kitchen was the ketchup.

Bed: 10.

Very good service from all staff. Nice environment/style/interior all over the hotel.

Wonderful breakfast, and lunch - large selection.

Had 1 spa treatment -a massage - it was average, carried out perfunctorily.
The pool is very small.

The area is wonderful, but far from the touristy things (apart from the ski jump, which is close by)
Munch museum, national Gallery, KonTiki museum, etc, one must drive or go by tram down to the city centre.
