Scandic Grensen Oslo, Oslo
Awful Hotel
Customer service was awful. Our TV was not working and I had gone down to the front desk to ask for help and they said no one was available until 10 AM the next day. This was unacceptable because we were only staying one night and I was sick staying in. Finally he said he could send someone up at 10/10:15 PM (2 hours after I originally had asked for help) and no one showed. I walked back down to front desk and the new employee had said that they made a note on my account that I had gone out and was not in my room and to check in upon return. I HAVE NO IDEA how the man before made that assumption because I was in my PJ’s clearly very sick when I came down to ask for help. Long story short, TV was never fixed and they did nothing to compensate or apologize for the inconvenience. Worst hotel/customer service I have ever experienced.

Great location with awesome breakfast and gym!
Great location and awesome breakfast! Complimentary gym passes to fantastic SATS gym a block away, better than most gyms in US. Outstanding room comfort view and service, can’t say enough about this hotel.

Great centrally-located modern hotel
Great hotel. Clean, modern, AMAZING breakfast with lots of American favorites (bacon & eggs!). The location is perfect if you are spending a day or two in Oslo- it's very centrally located. If you just need a place to crash for a night, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this location for that- it's about 3/4 mile from the train station. Overall I loved it, very impressed with the Scandic brand and I would definitely stay here again!
