Perfect place to stay in Oslo. Close to many points of interest. It is the central hub for trains and buses which is very convenient. Just a 40 min train ride to Holmenkollen. Rooms were very clean. The palace is only a 15 min walk. Opera house is close by.

Literally right next to the train station. Used it as our base of operations in Oslo for two separate days. There's a tour bus pick stop about 1/4 mile from here. It's a great way to see the city. The attached Egon restaurant serves the breakfast included with the room. It's very good. The actual rooms are very basic. We didn't spend much time in the room, but when we were in there, tv wasn't really an option because there were only 2 stations in English...BBC and Discovery.

We chose the Scandic Byporten because of the value and convenient location. The rooms are clean, although a little small by U.S. standards. Staff is very accommodating. The hotel is connected to a small shopping mall and the central train station in Oslo and the trams and busses are just outside in the plaza. We thought our rooms might be a bit noisy because of being right downtown, but they were quiet and comfortable sleeping. Breakfast is provided by the Egon hotel across the lobby entrance. We are also using this hotel when we return to Oslo before returning home since it is a convenient train ride to the airport.

I stayed here for three nights as part of a Norwegian tour. There were only five hangers allocated for two people and no drawer space so I had to partially live out of my suitcase. There was no carpet on the bedroom floor. The bathroom was very cold. I only discovered the underfloor heating in the bathroom when it was too late to be of any use. The whole room was very basic. There were no added extras apart from a few tea/coffee sachets and packets of creamer. One of the minute mugs provided was dirty on arrival. You'll find two containers of liquid soap in the bathroom but that's it.

Breakfast was chaotic. The food was tasteless. There weren't enough staff and piles of dirty crockery hung around the tables long after the users had left.

The hotel is very central and the staff were very pleasant, helpful and friendly.

If this is a four star hotel, the star system must be lowering its standards.
