        outdated hotel, expensive, bad breakfast, staff needs service training

        Excellent location. Close to tram and bus stop. Great room with plenty of space and comfy furnishing, nice and clean.

        Disappointed with breakfast, terrible service. Dirty tables on arrival, dirty cutlery. Reheated food from day before. Choice varied from day to day and once things ran out they wasn't replenished.

        God service i resepsjonen. God beliggenhet ift Flytoget.

        Breakfast service could in general be improved :-)

        To be honest, just the breakfast buffet was good.

        The first room I was given to did not have an operating panel for the key card. I was not able to turn on the light. Opposite of the hotel there was a construction site, so I did not have to worry of oversleeping because the pneumatic-hammer was doing this job at 07.00 am. The whole room was shabbily.The floor, the bathroom, the locker was dusty, this pricey "hotel" was a nightmare. I did take a lot of pictures. I can mail them if you like. The hotel staff was cockily: I asked why my room was not cleaned up at 08.00 pm and the man answered "I don' t know, it is not my job ". I did not asked him to clean up or whose job it was but his statement was typical to complete my impression about this run-down sleazy hotel.

        Location was ideal for my business visits. It's very close to Skoyen railway station so easy to get to.

        Good location just a few minutes with train/car outside Oslo City. Good breakfast.

        Took a long time to check in, only one person at the desk

        Nice , simple room with a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom , I will be back when I nerd to go to Oslo.

        Receptionists were real friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast was great. Every kind of food you might think of was there.

        Even if the room was non-smoking we could smell the cigarets every time we walked into the room.

      • Single
        7.8

        Good transport links to central Oslo. The hotel is only about 250m from Skoyen train station (7 mins to Oslo central) and the bus stop (15 - 30mins). The tram stop is about 400m (c. 15 - 20mins).

        Nice serviceminded people in a good hotel.

        Good breakfast buffet

        Shabby decor in the hallways, elevator and automatic doors didn't always work, seemed to need updating. Room wasn't cleaned properly.

        Close to the Skøyen railway station. Perfect connection to the city. Bike ride will take +- 20 minutes.

        Good breakfast

        Parking rather expensive (175 NOK/24h)

      • Couple
        6.2

        I like the location of Scandic Sjølyst. Friendly staff.

        Breakfast: It took time to fill up with food + some food was missing. Room: It was some hair left in the showerarea. Carpark: Not so well organised. It would for instance be better if the carpark was numbered and also connected to the guest room. So the receptionist can keep track if it full or not. Overall I think the room is too expensive for the standard that Scandic Sjølyst offer.

      • Couple
        6.2

        The location near Bygdøy was great for walking access to the museums there. Also a lot of shops nearby and easy links to transport for the city centre.

        It is not possible to pre-book parking here; while the hotel say that it is available, there are actually only a limited number of parks. If you don't manage to get one, then you'll have to pay for parking on the street (though it is free on Sundays) or in a nearby car-parking building at considerable expense. We booked this hotel precisely because parking was advertised as available (as is not the case for several hotels in the centre), and I requested that the hotel notify us if there could be a problem with this on the booking. After driving 9 hours we did not expect to be told that there were no places to park. I would only recommend this hotel to travellers arriving without a vehicle. Public transport is very good from here and there is no need for a car, though in our case this wasn't possible. In addition, the receptionist was quite blunt and not especially helpful. Perhaps she'd already had to tell too many people that day that they couldn't park their cars at the hotel either...!
