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

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

Hotel is very central to Oslo, near to the station and main sights. Room was well presented and was a good size (plenty of room for suitcase and for us to move round easily). We over looked the main road which had a tram line on it but it wasn't any noisier than I'd expect from a city centre hotel.... More

On arrival and politely requesting a twin room. We were told that the hotel has no twin beds only doubles so friends had better be happy sharing a double bed! Then we were given a room on the street side next to the lift. I think this must have been the worst room in the hotel. I went back to... More

...there is a lot of street noise, and the rooms are not air conditioned, so opening the window will assure that you will not get a good night's sleep. This was our experience and it was unpleasant. First impressions: we did not feel welcomed by the front desk staff, and the rooms are small. Best amenities: complimentary bikes and an... More
