About Scandic St Olavs Plass, Oslo

Stylish hotel inside the Edderkoppen Theatre complex

Edderkoppen Theatre

Norway's first theater hotel, Scandic St Olavs Plass shares a building with the popular Edderkoppen Theatre and is a 10-minute walk north of Karl Johans Gate. It's a 3-minute walk from Tullinløkka, from where you can catch buses and trams to get around the rest of the city.

Live music and lizards

If Norwegian theater isn't for you, the Rockefeller Music Hall, an 11-minute walk, is a large concert venue that hosts shows from major international artists. You're also close to Oslo Reptilpark: a family-friendly display of creepy-crawlies, including snakes and spiders.

Free breakfast buffet

There's a healthy start to the day with a free breakfast buffet served in the restaurant,, which also serves dinner in theater-inspired surroundings. Keeping fit is no problem thanks to the hotel's fully equipped fitness center, and you can enjoy a sauna post workout.

WiFi and pay movies

The 241 guestrooms and suites all have wooden floors for that classic cabin feel, and some offer balconies with a view of the city. You can stay connected with free WiFi, and pay movies are available to watch on TV when you feel like taking it easy.

Scandic St Olavs Plass, Oslo
Under construction!
Place was under heavy construction, jackhammers and drills all day long. Moved rooms but the whole building was being redone.

AIR CONDITIONING is almost non-existent Other than being hot 24/7 in the room, the hotel and staff were very good. The buffet breakfast was exceptional and the hotel is an easy 10 minute walk to all the major sites..

Great location
We arrived to the hotel in the evening and we got a room on the first floor next to the bar. I specifically asked for a quite room so we were very disappointment with the room. The front desk staff claimed that they have no other room available. The next day we moved to another room that was at a better location but smaller. We paid for superior room and got standard room. At least they could offer us to refund the difference in price. The breakfast was great and the location is perfect.
