Just a couple of minutes from the central railway station and with walking distance to most of the attractions in Oslo, this is a good hotel for anyone who arrives by train (e.g. from the airport) and has some luggage. Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast included. Only drawback is the doggy clientele that hangs around the railway station.

This hotel is in a great location, Central Oslo City within sight of trams and railway station; the breakfast was really excellent and staff were very helpful and pleasant; the beds were comfortable (although only one small flat European sized pillow); however, in other countries the bedroom would be classed as a small, hostel style or basic hotel room; our...

Great location. Hotel is loacted on Karl Johans street opposite to Oslo Sentralstasjon. As Karl Johans street is the main street of Oslo, you can find plenty of restaurants, main shopping area, bars, hotels and museums all within walking distance from the hotel. It’s a great area to walk around. The Museums, the new Opera House, the Parliament and Royal... More

If you're going in and out by train, the location can't be beat. It took us a grand total of 15 minutes from arrival at the train station to walking into our room. Most attractions were within a 20 minute walking distance allowing us to maximize our short stay. Rooms were basic but adequate. It did get hot at night... More

We stayed for one night after flying in late. We had to catch a train the next day early morning so the location of the hotel looked appealing. Indeed, the location was a dream for us as the hotel is located next to the train station (although no train noise). The room was big enough to have a small sitting... More

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
