Well we arrived Wednesday and have left early this morning, it was not really enough. Plenty to see in Oslo and very tourist friendly mainly due to its size, only 4.7 million people live in Norway with only about 600,000 living in Oslo, making it very easy to get around on foot.

Thursday we met up with friends and walked around Akershus …

... lined with nude sculptures, male, female and children. It was meant to depict the circle of life and was built over 100 years ago. It is named after the man who created it, Gustav Vigeland.
Next we go up the mountain where there is a massive ski slope made from steel. The skiers practice their aerial pursuits all year round on this and it is very high.
After there, the tour ...

... airport, I had to get my boarding pass stamped, even though I'd already checked in online. I was greeted by a smiling employee who seemed to have the linguistic skills of some of the Russian flight crew I've encountered - despite working in an international airport for an airline based in the UK, she seemed capable of - or only willing to - speak exclusively in one language: French. After getting that sorted, I managed to get completely lost in an airport the size ...

... and I get to keep off my feet most of the day. Bonus!! Just a note, never buy cheap inserts for your shoes/boots. I have 6 band aids on my feet right now. Walkin a little funny and slow but to quote Clark W Griswold "it's all part of the experience". Note to those interested in travelin to Norway or Scandinavia in General: it's EXPENSIVE! I spent 8 euro one way one the tram and then realized I was headed the wrong direction. Doh!! Good thing I'm making this trip ...

... the "Grand Tour," we didn't have to wait in it. I asked where the line for people who had already paid was, and they lady just took my paper and processed me in front of everybody else. Really, that just meant printing a receipt, as they don't use pretty paper tickets here, just slips of register paper.
Upon reaching the boat, we asked the guy loading us what side was better. He said the left, but then we weren't sure what side was actually left. Ultimately, I ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Scandic KNA Oslo

    Nice hotel nasty cheese/bar prices

    from

    Good hotel for the money, ain't no boutique hotel, but catered for all our needs on a weekend break. Was worried it may be too far away from oslo's center, but its such a compact city with good transport that it wasnt a problem and only a very pleasant 15 min walk from the station anyway. Clean, comfy and good breakfast, {apart from the funny brown cheese, boyfriend insisted we tried}

    When in oslo go to bistro brocante on thorvald meyersgate in grunerlokka, fantastic food, ace service, not too pricey and a nice fella with a beard that recommended a good bottle of wine. All in all Oslo's lovely, bit pricey but this good hotel and the viking ships are all worth it, we are all still disagreeing about the Munch museum, but thats art.

    Lovely hotel, good location

    from

    We (four women in lates 20s) booked a family superior room for two nights at the Scandic KNA and were pleased with our choice.

    Excellent value for money

    from

    We stayed in this hotel for one night only. It was very reasonably priced as it included breakfast, which was fabulous! the room was clean, a good size and comfortable, perfectly functional for a short stay in Oslo. The location was good, 3 minutes walk from the Palace, and 10-15 mins walk from the main commercial areas. The hotel staff were polite and helpful. The only thing I would say, is that we arrived Sat night and so just had Sunday in Oslo, and everything was closed - and because we visited in October the fjord cruises weren't running either, perhaps not the best time to visit, but this was a surprise trip for my husband's birthday!

    The hotel, I would recommend without a doubt as compared to everything else in Oslo, it was excellent value for money!!

    Really Surprised

    from

    This was a great find. Very accessible hotel, located 2 blocks from the royal palace, 6 blocks to Aker Brygge and the city hall, Karl Johan place. Actually, its a great base to explore the city. Breakfast is included in the price of the room and I love the free internet service in the lobby.

    Great Staff

    from

    Very nice hotel in the centre of Oslo. The staff were very friendly and there's a free water cooler and Ice machines on each floor. Very good value considering how expensive everything is in Oslo, and reasonable breakfast. I stayed in a family room, as 3 students sharing, and the space available was very reasonable compared to other hotels. Bathroom wasn't the best for a 4-star hotel, but very generous in size. The food in the restaurant was very disappointing, but there are 4 computer terminals with free internet access.

    Well worth a visit!

    from

    We stayed here for four nights from New Year's Eve, having got a good deal.

    A comfortable, quiet hotel close to the city centre

    from

    I stayed at the Scandic KNA for my one night in Oslo. The hotel is situated in a side street very close to the Royal Palace and Karl Johans Gate (the main road in Oslo). Its only about a 15 minute walk from the main railway and bus stations or alternatively there is a tram which runs past the hotel. Aker Bryge (shops, restaurants, night-life)is also a short 10 minute walk away.

    Spacious family room

    from

    We spent 4 days at the Scandic KNA in May 2005 and were quite pleased with our two superior family rooms which were spacious and in good shape and made us feel at home. We had booked at a bargain price of 600 NOK per room including a large buffet breakfast which is great but would say that the regular price is overcharged for a hotel of this type.

    It is a 10 minute walk to the lovely Aker Brygge area and the tram and bus is only 2 minutes away. Free internet is an additional treat. Recommended at a price of no more than 850 NOK.

    Good location

    from

    I stay here everytime I go to Oslo. Its not dead in the centre of town, so is nice and quiet and its a nice easy walk down the road to get to the Akker Brigge. Room sizes seem to vary wildly - sometimes they are your typical tiny Scandinavian offering, sometimes more like an American hotel room. As every where in Scandinavia, the staff are all friendly, helpful and speak good English.

    A hotel in the middle of Oslo

    from

    I stayed at the hotel for 1 night in June 2003 and I stayed at room 306.Location The location of the hotel is great. First of all it is located near the airport express train (Flytoget) station at Nasjonalteateret. It is also located just a few minutes from the main street in Oslo (Karl Johan), the Royal Palace and Aker brygge (the waterfront area). There is also a tram line in the street next to the hotel so it should be easy to get around.The lobby is pretty standard but it was cool to see that they have two PCs by the front desk which was hooked up to the internet and it was free of charge using it. I think they must be running broadband by the way because the internet access was pretty fast. There is a bar and a restaurant in the lobby area. We had lunch in the restaurant a couple of day and the food was pretty good. We also went to the bar at night and it was very, very quiet. After all it was a day in the middle of the week.The room The room I had was nice. The floor in the room was a wooden parquet floor and it had yellow painted walls. In the room I found a single bed, a wardrobe with about 5 hangers, a color TV with lots of different channels (CNN, BBC, Discovery, pay TV and so on), a desk with a typical chair and two softer chairs with a small table between them. The TV is mounted on the wall so you can watch it when sitting in the chairs or while you are in bed. There was a small minibar in the room with drinks (soft drinks and beer/wine) and chocolates. If you need to iron your clothes I guess that is not a problem because and iron and an ironing board is mounted on the wall. The hotel also has a laundry service by the way. And it was a non smoking room and I enjoy that :-)The bathroom had white tiles and it had a bathtub with the possibility of taking a shower. A glass plate was mounted on the bathtub to prevent water from splashing everywhere when taking a shower. Im not sure that this solution is the best by the way. Even if the pressure if the shower wasnt that great I still managed to splash quite a lot of water on the floor. There were no little shampoo bottles by the way. Instead the hotel has gone over to wall mounted containers of hand soap and shampoo/shower gel. I guess it makes sense because it creates less trash and the hotel probably save money on this. And there was of course the standard hair dryer mounted on the wall.Breakfast Breakfasts at Norwegian hotels are not that exciting. The only hot stuff they had when I was there was scrambled eggs, boiled egg and sausages. But you had your normal selection of fresh bread, different kinds of jam, cheese (both the brown goat cheese and the typical white cheese), ham, honey and so on. And there was also a selection of cereal of course. They also had juice, different kinds of milk and coffee/tea.Fitness room and sauna I stopped by the fitness room and the sauna by the way. I was not very impressed with the exercise room at all. They had a stationary bike, one bench and one gadget for lifting some weights. So I think that I have to recommend that you get your exercise from doing sightseeing on foot around town :-)Conclusion A fairly standard hotel but with a pretty good location in the middle of Oslo.
