About Scandic Holberg, Oslo

Central Oslo hotel by Palace Park, with free breakfast

Near trams, airport bus

Located on the north side of the city center, Scandic Holberg is within a 4-minute walk of Palace Park, a leafy green space that surrounds the Royal Palace. You have a tram station a half-block away at Holbergs plass, and the airport express bus stops near the hotel's doorstep.

The Storting on foot

At the eastern end of Palace Park, you can pick up Karl Johans gate near the University of Oslo's Faculty of Law. Following the main street, you reach the National Theater, Spikersuppa Ice Rink, and the national legislature, the Storting, on the way to a pedestrian shopping area.

Free organic breakfast

Guests love the free organic breakfast buffet - a spread of Norwegian and popular Western dishes, served each morning in the bright, sky-lit restaurant. The hotel also has a 24-hour fitness center, a bar, and an around-the-clock front desk lets you arrive at any hour.

Free WiFi, pay movies

Light-filled with wooden floors and large windows or skylights, the 133 guestrooms offer Scandinavian simplicity and colorful accents. There's free WiFi throughout the hotel, and you can relax in an armchair while watching a pay movie on the TV.

Scandic Holberg, Oslo
The hotel was very good in all aspects. I would highly recomend it

Scandic Holberg, Oslo
We found the hotel very comfortable.
We found this hotel very convenient to many city sites. It is on a tram line and near an airport shuttle stop. The hotel desk attendants were always helpful and had ready answers. There are nearby convenience stores and restaurants. Bring earplugs. We were in 204 and had open windows. Maybe you can ask for a quieter location. We liked the beds and room, though somewhat small. Bathrooms were very modern, clean and efficient.

Nice older hotel in a convenient location.
This is an older, reasonably-priced hotel very close to the royal palace and surrounding gardens. Most of the major tourist sites, museums, and major shopping districts of Oslo are within walking distance or a trolley ride away. The trolley passes directly by the hotel. The breakfast buffet has a wide variety of tasty dishes. I particularly liked the variety of tasty breads and cheeses, as well as the mackerel in a tomato sauce.

Night clerk was very helpful to a relative who needed to get in touch with us when that relative did not know our room number. We appreciate that effort.

Nice room, Great price.
Nice hotel in a great central location. Easy to get just about anywhere from here. Staff was very helpful on check-in and when I asked for directions. Gave some good tips on what to see. Room was a bit sparse in its décor if that's what your looking for... I just need a clean room, which this was. Would definitely consider staying here again.
