Great location, fantastic breakfast

Posted Jan 23, 2017
The location of the Scandic Grensen is fantastic, only two blocks from Karl Johan Gade and within easy walking distance to all of the attractions in central Oslo. Staying here is worth it for the breakfast alone, which true to Scandic style, includes a wide variety of items (and a whole separate gluten-free section). I've been to Oslo before and stayed elsewhere, but next time, would check for availability here first before booking anywhere else.

Hotel staff were great. There was some damage to a wall in the room which was a shame. Overall a very good hotel and would stay again.

Biggest complaint was no chair or desk! Not a single chair.

Thank you for staying with us. Unfortunately we do not have a desk and chair in the rooms. This is something we desire and the team works hard to make sure that we can invest in this in our near future. Welcome back for a test sit soon. Best regards, Therese Fredriksson

Thank you for your review. At the hotel we can offer queen and a few twin rooms with single beds. If you do not like sharing we do recommend you to book a twin room for your next stay. Hope to welcome you back soon again!
