Scandic Vulkan

13a Maridalsveien
view web site ›'s insider take:

This nine-story, stark white angular building rises like an iceberg on the outskirts of the Grünerløkka neighborhood, a ten-minute tram ride from Oslo's Central Station. And if you're looking for contemporary digs in the more alternative part of town, this fits the bill. The 149 clean-lined rooms have smooth wood plank floors, color block walls painted gray or purple, and oversize lamps hung over the beds. The bathrooms, tiled white, are simple tub-in-shower combinations, for the most part. Some nice perks for guests include free Wi-Fi and use of the hotel's bicycles for urban exploring and walking sticks if you want to take advantage of nearby hiking trails. Breakfast, included in the room rate, is a typical Scandinavian spread of meats, muesli, cheeses, yogurts, and breads served in a pretty room strung with retro Edison bulbs. There's a small gym on the third floor with weights and workout machines, but walking around Grünerløkka's happening streets is a far nicer way to get your exercise.—Terry Ward
