The hotel is across the street from the Central train station which is a very good location for both reaching to the hotel from the airport and exploring the city. The main shopping and pedestrian streets, as well as the Oslo fjord are in a short walking distance from the hotel. The rooms were clean, though, the single room I... More

This hotel has many positives (details below), but I am rating it as (only) average for two reasons (also see details below): 1. the "standard room" we booked for two adults was very small and uncomfortable for a five-night stay; and 2. service issues: a desk clerk was less than helpful at the beginning of our stay, and there were...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights with my sister on the 1st and 2nd September. This hotel is in a great central location. It's 10mins walk from the train station and walking distance to all the main attractions in Oslo. The hotel is modern and clean. Great quality beds and bedding. The rooms are small but well designed... More

I got off the airport bus right across the hotel and main street (Karl Johnas Gate) is right next. The metro is close too. The breakfast is very nice and has excellent quality. Best meal in Oslo during my stay. The room and bathroom is clean but the room is quite small. The reception desk staff is very helpful and... More

We stayed at the Rica Hotel 20 for four nights in early August. The rooms were small as described in other blogs, but sufficient for our needs. Also, as others have stated the hotel is in the center of Oslo, thus it has noise from street traffic. The noise did not seem to bother us and we tend to be... More

Dear guest Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Rica G20 is an ok hotel for its price. It's modern and relatively new. I stayed in a single room, and I have to say it was probably the smallest hotel room I've stayed in. Breakfast is good, selection of food and drinks is adequate. They have Wi-Fi and it's free.

The hotel was a short walk from the train station. The lobby is very small, but we don't usually sit in the lobby area anyway. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We purchased the Oslo Pass which included the hotel. We were able to pick up our pass from the hotel staff. Our rooms were very small (we couldn't... More

We just needed a quick place to stay overnight near the Oslo central station. The G20 is well run and the staff are extremely helpful. Amenities are pretty standard fare -- not swank but functional. Breakfast was reasonable, too. I will say that the neighborhood in which the hotel is located is pretty bland but very convenient.

Rooms small but clean. Able to upgrade to a slightly larger room for minimal cost which made things more comfortable for two people. Staff very helpful. Delicious variety of breakfast choices. Location was great for sightseeing and shopping. Would stay again or try a different hotel in same chain.

I hardly stayed in hotels that had floor to ceiling windows so I love that Rica G20 has that and the view outside is stunning. The breakfast was amazing, particularly love the fish roe, herring and a lot of fruits, they even have passionfruit which I thought is rare. The room is a little small but it's ok for us.... More
