The hotel is right across the street from the central train station (go to the exit to the Router tower - and the Rica building will be in front of you, with the entrance around the corner on the right side). Very convenient location for train travel, but the crowd at the square and at the beginning of the main... More

Overall we really enjoyed this hotel. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is very good - lots of variety. The best part of the hotel is the location. If you are arriving and departing by train, I would highly recommend this hotel. You leave the station and it is right across the street. That avoids a lot of stress... More

Got a good deal in this hotel. The room is best described as bijou, but clean and as we were only using the hotel for B&B purposes was very good. The breakfast was excellent and in keeping with the famed Norwegian breakfast offer. We had a room at the front of the hotel and there were approximately 15 immigrants sitting... More

I was in Oslo on Business and found the Rica Oslo a comfortable hotel in the center of the city. The breakfast was great, but the Internet was really slow and the rooms were really small even for Europe standards. Great hotel for Business.

I had a classic decorated room with a view into a courtyard in which there was scaffolding to do maintenance. A bit dark in there all together. The bathroom was a nightmare; very small and tired; I just don't get it with these price levels. When drying off I had to open the door to the room to find space... More

This hotel is a good choice in terms of location. Very close to the central station and subway as well. Plenty of options of restaurants and shops. The room is clean, quite and comfortable. Breakfast is very good.

It's a very comfortable hotel because of it's position in the city, it's right in front of the central station and all busses, trams and the subway that conduct you all over Oslo city stop exactly at his side. The rooms probably aren't really a 4star type but it's a nice, comfortable and clean hotel, the staff is extremely kind... More

Good location, silent. Nice bed and good shower. One block from the central station, and a walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Shopping over the street and just 10 min walk to the new pier.

The hotel is a very standard budget business hotel. Stayed there for two nights in a single room. The room was recently refurbished with up to date furniture. The bed was comfortable. The windows were not sound proof as there was a lot of noise streaming in to the room during night. This affected my sleep. The bathroom, and especially... More

Stayed there one night in April 2014. Small rooms, but quite ok. What gives high scoore here is the amazing breakfast that was exceptionally good. This is probably the best I've ever seen in Europe! Scandic Hotel Eddekoppen has long been the best breakfast in Oslo, but here's a worthy competitor. Extra points for nice breakfast staff and especially a... More
