Scandic Helsfyr, Oslo
Nice hotel, clean room, full breakfast. Caution- it’s about a 10 min walk from the subway station (which is VERY easy to take into the center of Oslo). Caution- wear shoes with traction if you plan to do this walk- sidewalks are covered in ice and snow with gravel on top (standard in the area, not specific to this hotel).

Oktoberfest in Oslo
I was very pleased with my stay at Scandic Helsfyr, the hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast in the morning was also top notch. I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a hotel in Oslo, the location next to the Metro (T-Bane) was very convenient.

Clean, excellent service, would stay again
This hotel was great for a one-night stay. It would be great for a longer period of time as well. It was comfortable, clean, the shower had great water pressure, breakfast was a great variety of all types of dishes. I would definitely stay here again.
