The Scandic Byporten is a good value hotel in Oslo. Located next to the Oslo main train terminal and at the foot of Karl Johans Gate (the main shopping and strolling street), it has an enviable position. The hotel is somewhat difficult to find since it built on top of a shopping complex. The entrance is either through the mall or inside an alcove/parking garage. Once inside, the hotel is very well maintained and has all the creature comforts of home. The bath was very nice and the drapes were thick and dark to keep out the twenty hours of sunlight that Oslo has during the summer. This seems to be a perfect place to stay if you want to be on the perimeter of the action or if you want to be near the train station for a quick getaway.
