The double room I stayed in was extremely small but the bed was comfortable and extremely close to the train station (2 min walk) which was basically all I needed at the time. You can ask for an "early bird breakfast" or "matpakke" where they will pack you a breakfast if you have to check out or leave early in... More

This is a small hotel centrally located, within easy walking distance of the parliament building, the palace, shopping centre and various metro stations. The rooms are on the smallish side but on the positive side our room was very clean, the beds and pillows very comfortable and the staff very helpful. Free wiFi was available in the hotel as well...

Bad and good at this hotel. The bad is that is it VERY noisy, as the hotel is next to a late night bar with live music. This will keep you up, regardless of any earplugs you stuff into your ears. The room we had was extremely small and hot. It is well located (save for the bar) near to... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Rica Travel Hotel. The rooms are small, but clean and had everything I needed (TV, free WIFI, spacious bed). It's in a great location: really central, right in the middle of town only a few minutes walk from the train station, the park, the palace, the fjord, opera house, jazz clubs, blues clubs,... More

Rooms have a 'pillow menu' so you an change your pillow tone that suites. However think Rica should use money spent on this to buy new double glazing as hotel next... More

The hotel was good, everything was as I would expect from a hotel in a Nordic capital. It was clean, breakfast was good, there was a minibar and a tv in the room. I stayed in a single room, which was of a good size for one person. Location was very good, just off Karl Johans gate, on a quiet... More

I have been twice to the Rica Travel Hotel Oslo. Both stays have been great. The staff is friendly and service oriented. It's right in the center of Oslo, so within walking distance of just about anything. The rooms are clean and with comfortable beds, and breakfast is quite good. Add that they serve free waffles every afternoon, and you... More
