Scandic Oslo City, Oslo
The hotel does not have any air conditioning, fans, or any way to circulate air on a hot day. With global warming, this is now an issue. Good breakfasts and good location.

Great Tourist Hotel
A great hotel for tourists. Clean, comfortable and very convenient to transportation. We arrived by express train from the airport and it was an easy 5 minute walk to the hotel. Trams, buses and trains are adjacent to the hotel for easy travel to all the tourist attractions. The breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts we have ever had.

Quiet in the hussle-n-bussle
Our room was overlooking a courtyard, which provided quiet in a very active and exciting part of the city. The shower was skinny, but the water pressure was good.
