Stayed three nights in this hotel in conjunction with a national ski competition. The main beds are good. The extra bed provided is possibly the hardest mattress I have ever slept on. Not recommended. Breakfast was good considering the number of persons to be catered for.

We stayed in the Victoria for one night on our way through to Oslo airport. Our room was spotlessly clean although the bathroom was very small. We overlooked the railway station so it was very noisy during the night. Rooms have tea making facilities but no fridges and toiletries are minimal. Bed was very comfortable. We ate dinner and breakfast... More

First Victoria is centrally located, with shops and restaurants near by. Few steps from the railway station, a good thing if you arrive/leave by train. If you are a light sleeper, however, ask for a room facing the back side of the building, as the trains pass in front of the hotel Years ago I stayed at this hotel in... More

The only room available when we needed to stay at the First Hotel Victoria was a suite. It was the nicest room I've stayed in while visiting Norway. The people who worked at the reception area were very nice and let us check in early to get ready for the wedding we were going to. My only complaint was the... More

Room ok, not really clean and my room view is to inside hotel area, look empty... More

This was actually the third time I had stayed in this hotel. The room upgrades they made have made this a really nice property. I enjoyed my previous stays, but this was much better. The hotel staff is more professional now than in the past, and they did a great job making all of us feel welcome. The rooms that... More

Our family had the good fortune to stay at the First Hotel Victoria for three days in June. This recently renovated hotel is a gem. The rooms are beautifully clean and decorated in spare Scandinavian style, with wood floors and clean bathrooms. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast is excellent with a full range of hot and cold foods,... More
