The Rica chain has recently been bought by Scandic, and this has led to some unpleasant changes. As a business traveller who need a desk in my room, I was greatly surprised, when I learned that the desks was removed from all the rooms. I was told so, when I wanted to change room, and I know they have been... More

Wi-Fi signal is strong and the included breakfast was spot on. Meters away from the MRT station, the place well suited for those looking for a hassle free stay and wanted convenient and easy access around the city.

While the room was clean it was tiny, there was no closet or cabinets. No real lobby and only amenity in bathroom was soap and tissues Price was good but only advisable if you are staying for one night or have no luggage. On the plus side staff was friendly and breakfast was good

Stayed 1 night in this hotel. Quick and smooth check-in. The room is simple and clean, service is good. The location is ideal, close to Karl Johans gate and National Theatre train station, (3-4 min walk).

Good hotel. The best thing was the location. Slightly odd shaped rooms/tilting walls due to the building's facade but the room was a good base for us. Breakfast was pretty forgettable so can't have been bad! Staff friendly and knowledgable. Tram stop opposite which was really handy for getting all round town. MUCH better than their sister hotel round the... More

Perfect location, downtown, very close to a metro station. Very nice breakfast, good choice and tasty. The room was clean, the stuff helpful. Nice view on the street (but not too loud). And Wayne's Coffee at the bottom floor, which is my favorite cafe.

Stayed at the Rica G20 Hotel in Oslo for 2 nights in a room facing the street and tram tracks. The hotel is centrally located in Oslo city and a comfortable stroll to the harbour and other attractions. The price per night isn't cheap, but is reasonable compared to other places in the area. The room is very clean and... More

Fresh and central hotel at Grensen, close to shopping, museums, restaurants, trains and such. Reseptionists were polite and friendly. Large, nicely decorated rooms with duble beds. Nice and fresh bathroom with shampoo and soap. Hairdryer did not work properly, and that was a bit annoying. My room faced the street with a tramway, but was impressingly quiet despite.

The standard rooms are small, and also extremely dark. Most of the lighting comes from spotlights above the bed and the desk. There is only one chair. Since my work requires a lot of reading and time spent in the room, I found myself getting both depressed and headachy. Fortunately I complained and the manager found me an extra lamp.... More
