Very friendly staff,and good breakfast. You are close to everything in the city of Oslo. Good restaurants,theaters and shopping in walking distance. Recommend this as a good weekend hotel.Rooms are clean and what you need for a short stay.

Reception unwilling to co-operate. Did not encourage to spend any more extra money there. Tiny room. Good breakfast. OK for overnight sleep. For a weekender would be a total disaster. Overly soft bed - watch out if you have back issues.More

We were looking for affordable accommodation in central Oslo, and chose Scandic St. Olavs plass. It is a hotel with a very active scene for stand up comedy, so we were a bit afraid that it could be noisy, but without reason. Room was modern,...More

Hi! I will recommend to take a cab. It’s a little walk from the ferry to the hotel, and with various texture on the ground it can be a bit hard to walk with all the luggage. Have a great stay in Oslo!

We took the regular train from the airport and walked to the hotel. The trains in Norway are perfectly on time. Tickets can be purchased at the airport.
