About Scandic Vulkan, Oslo

Colorful hotel with free breakfast, next to Oslo Food Hall

Cutting-edge Vulkan area

Located in Vulkan, a newly built district next to the Aker River and dedicated to green energy and sustainable design, Scandic Vulkan is a great place to experience cutting-edge Oslo. Tram and bus stops are a 10-minute walk, and Oslo Central Station is 20 minutes away on foot.

Oslo's grand food hall

Across from the hotel, Mathallen Oslo is a modern food hall where locals buy specialty products or grab a bite to eat at one of many stalls. The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, 15 minutes' walk, houses "The Scream," one of Edvard Munch's best-known paintings.

Free organic breakfast

A free organic breakfast buffet is served at the modern V Bar and Bistro, which also offers lunch and dinner. The 24-hour Scandic Shop sells snacks and drinks, and you can also borrow a bike from the front desk.

Free WiFi, bold design

Each of the hotel's 149 cozy and colorful rooms has hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a bold, industrial photograph stretching across one wall. In addition to the free WiFi, rooms include a safe, a TV with movie channels, a desk, and a seating area with an armchair.

Very small room with no storage space, but if that is not important for your stay, the hotel is otherwise very good - especially the excellent breakfast buffet. Gerry

Eclectic spot in Oslo.
Had a great time touring Oslo. The hotel is located in an eclectic neighborhood with many interesting restaurants and bars. Great vacation spot.

Far from center of Oslo, but fairly close to bus stop

Scandic Vulkan, Oslo
VERY POOR experience! Not 4 stars!
They are NOT dog friendly, I would not bring your dog. The room had duck tape keeping the floor boards down leading into the bathroom and the lamp was broken and missing it’s glass. The room needed paint and was very run-down. Finally, on my last night there the spotlight on the ceiling of the bathroom popped out of its place and part of it fell on me. Wires were exposed and when we asked for some one to fix it they said they couldn’t. It was only after we insisted we got a different room. The air conditioning was broken and then they claimed they didn’t have any in the hotel, but our first room had AC.

Great hotel!
This hotel was not right in downtown, but it still was close to restaurants, parks, grocery and public transportation. We opted for a good walk into downtown one evening and it was about 20 min. Our room was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable (my husband and I had the beds together and slept great). The breakfast was AMAZING!! What a lot of wonderful food! The neighborhood had lots of graffiti, but we always felt safe.
