Good location

The hotel was good value as it had a good breakfast included in the room rate. The furnishings looked slightly tired, but for the price we paid it was not expensive and provided us with a centrally located base for exploring Oslo, and also for getting to the airport.

Convenient Location Close to Railway Station

We arrived at 9.00 am after a long flight from Australia and were given a room straight away which was great as we were very tired & appreciated a couple of hrs kip before heading outdoors. The room on the third floor was large, clean, warm and reasonably quiet. The twin beds were comfy. The facilities were ok though we couldn't get the hair dryer to work. Because we had to catch an early train the next day, we didn't have time for breakfast so can't comment on that. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and found the staff friendly and helpful.

Average+ hotel with good location

Scandic Byporten is very well located in the center of Oslo, short walk from Karl Johann (the main street), Oslo Congress Center and the Opera house. Byporten is a cluster of buildings connected to the main railway station in Oslo. So it was just a short walk from the Airport Express train to the hotel trough the station and its many shops. I had some problems locating the entrance of the hotel but I succeeded in the end :) . (I recommend to go outside in front of the station and turn right to enter again where restaurant Egon is). The room (410) was a bit small but comfortable, free internet (cable), space to work and an older CRT TV. Small closet but sufficient for a short stay. Small bathroom with shower. Full breakfast was included in restaurant Egon and it was good, but the service there could have been better. I like these types of Business hotel rooms but I stay there nearly only to sleep and a bit of work. Value was good (Oslo is very expensive) and the staff was friendly and quick to help. I will use them again. If I could, I would give them a 3 1/2 star.

One Night Only

We were happy with everything there. Good restaurant, breakfast buffet and bar facilities too. Fast wifi and good television reception. One minor downside...there is a Nespresso Coffee Machine in the room but only one pod available to make the coffee. If you wanted any more you had to purchase them. A bit 'cheeky' I thought. Should provide at least two so we both could enjoy a wakeup coffee before going to breakfast

Good location as a neighbour to the railway station

Within the same building complex as the railway station and central in the city this location is excelent for holliday, pleasure and business. Under it you will find the subway and there is just 5 minute walk to the bus station. 19 minutes to the airport by train and allmost the bouble by bus. Small rooms, but clean. Friendly staff. This is my second time and I would use it again if I need a room for a night or two. Breakfast served in the neighbouring restaurant, but it just across the hallway (indoors). Could be a bit crowdy for breakfast some times, but not a big problem. The problem is that they tend to be slow to fill up stuff that are empty. I would recomend this hotel to my friends as long as they do not expect any extra luxury, then they have to pay a lot more at another hotel.

hotel was in good location right

hotel was in good location right next to train station. Room a bit small, but probably good sized for Scandinavian standards. The bath towels were very worn and thin, and when i asked for replacements, i was given towels of the same quality - not up to usual room standard. Breakfast was quite good.

This hotel is ideally located

This hotel is ideally located at the central raiilway station and transport terminus and on the main street. It is only a short walk to the opera house, the town hall and the harbour
