Guest reviews for Scandic Byporten

4 out of 5
Nice in every way. Yes, the room is small, but that is typical in Europe. The only complaint is the difficulty in finding this hotel when arriving by train. We must have asked four people! Advice to guests is to look for the Egon Restaurant that is part of the Byporten Hotel. The restaurant is popular and well known and the hotel reception is directly across the aisle from it.

Hi, Thank you so much for sharing your experience! I couldn't agree more with you with regards to the poor signage. If it was up to me, there would have been Scandic Byporten signs all over central Oslo. However the rules and regulations in this matter are rather rigid. Hoping to see you soon again and that finding us next time will be easier :) Warm regards,

Good value in an expensive location.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was basic but modern and clean. The free breakfast was the best I've seen anywhere, here or abroad. The central location is a plus with all of the various types of public transport at the front door of the hotel. We did not use it, but they had free Internet access in each room. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great hotel with excellent location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
I have stayed here several times and love it. The staff are very helpful, and were instrumental in helping resolve a travel issue during one visit. Breakfast is included, with the best selection I saw in either Norway or Sweden. The hotel is connected to Oslo's Central Station through the mall and provides easy access to Gardemoen Airport via the trains. In addition to wi-fi, the hotel has two computers available for guests. The hotel is right across from Karl Johan's Gate (Oslo's main pedestrian mall# and walking distance to Akershus Fortress, Akers Brygge #the wharf), and the palace.

Great hotel

Of the hotels we stayed in while in Norway this was the best. It was a great value with clean rooms and an excellent location. We had an early flight out and we enjoyed the the facy that we could go to the train without having to leave the hotel (especially since it was raining). The staff couldn't have been friendlier and helped us several times during our two day stay. The Egon restuarant is right across the hall from the main entrance to the hotel. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of selections. We would definately stay here again.
