Central Oslo hotel

Posted Apr 8, 2017
We had a one night stop in oslo and stayed at scandic green. We knew the room was small but they had excellent facilities and a wonderful staff. For one night we didn't need much space. The room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was good with many options.

Very nice staff and tasty breakfast. Smallish room but great shower - great option and near enough to walk to main train station

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.

Convenient minimal clean hotel

An OK hotel in an OK location

Posted Dec 6, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is located near to the centre of Oslo, with all of the main attractions within a 10-15 min radius. The room was very small, however, we only used the room to sleep in, and the bed is very comfortable, so I wouldn't complain about the size - just to warn anyone that thinks it'll be large. The breakfast was OK, I've definitely had worse, but also had a lot better. There's not many options for vegetarians. They have large lockers for you to store your luggage once you've checked out but still want to explore the city - this was great! Overall, the hotel is just OK - nothing special. If the price was right, I'd stay here again.
