Had a one night stay in a family room with my partner and two kids. Saw two family rooms. The one we were booked into had sleeping couch with a 4cm mattress and did not even look comfy for our skinny kids. Second room was very small but had a much better sleeping couch for the kids... At least so... More

The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast. Good assortment in a nice environment. Good location close to the castle. We had an upgraded room on the top floor with roof windows which was very nice, but since we had an extra bed we could not really use the sofa in the room

This hotel is ideally situated near the royal palace and a lot of other exciting attractions in Oslo. Access was easy from the airport as there is a shuttle bus available to the area courtesy of the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel. Book a return ticket at the same time to save money. Great hotel staff, good selection on the food... More

Please consider the Rica Holberg Hotel when planning your trip to Oslo. My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Norway and had the pleasure of staying in this charming hotel. It is in a more quiet part of town but within a short walking distance of the palace and the heart of the city. The staff... More

This is a tricky one, as something is really good and something is not acceptable. So average...! Let’s start with the pros; Staff is generally very helpful and positive. Always a smile and a helping hand or an umbrella from the reception staff. Breakfast staff tends to get negative when the breakfast room is overcrowded (which is when we need... More

The hotel is nicely located, very convenient in that regard. Rooms are small, generally comfortable, although our bed was rather soft and saggy for two people sleeping in it (the main detraction of the place). Wi-fi was good, breakfast was very good. Parking is available - it's very expensive, but that probably can't be avoided in Oslo.

The good: excellent service from Olga at reception. She was super helpful when we needed to find a doctor for a medical consultation. Wonderful breakfast buffet with yummy carrot juice, where you can pack sandwiches to bring on the plane if you wish. The not good: First night, we arrived very late from NIN and were awarded what was supposed... More

Really a hard decision for Oslo because there are so many hotels, hostels, apartments to choose from. The trick is to research the location and bus service. There is a SAS bus called flybussen that is very conveniently located at the airport and make stops at hotels. The trick is if you are on a budget(oslo very expensive) then you... More

We stayed in the hotel for three days. It seemed good in the beginning, but as we checked into the hotel we had booked a family room to stay in as it was just a little more expensive but bigger. We were given our keycards and went to our room which they had without notice changed into a standard double... More
