Typical business hotel in the center of Oslo, with friendly and helpful staff, but also nice for other guest. In walking distance of many of Oslo's sights, buses, trams, trains and shopping center. All rooms have recently been renovated, and most bathrooms, and I find the hotel to be quiet. Free wifi,and free bike rent. Parking is possible but a... More

We stayed here for three nights in September-14 and were very happy with the location. It's just a few steps to the Karl Johan and a couple of minutes walk to the harbour. Lifts went through renovations when we stayed, but it didn't affect us really. The room was not very big (two adults, two kids) but beds were comfortable... More

Stayed 1 night towards end of August 2014. Location is good – handy for National Theatre subway station and also for walking to Karl Johans gate and Aker Brygge. Hard to say what it was but it felt as if the hotel was part way through a refurbishment programme. Hallways felt dark and slightly claustrophobic, lift area felt as if... More

Dear Arriverderci, thank you for writing a review of our hotel. We have rooms facing the interior from which we get good feedback such as " nice and quiet". But we also have rooms with streetview. All our rooms have been refurbished within the last three years. I wish you welcome back the next time you are in Oslo. Regards... More

Spent two nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it. Great staff always ready to lend a hand, and the location is perfect for exploring Oslo's city centre and harbour. Be warned, it's very close to the city hall, which houses a 49-bell carillon which plays every hour - from early in the morning until late at night. Other... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly and it has a great location. It's only minutes from the harbor and the main shopping street and around the corner from the City Hall and a Seven Eleven (for late night cravings). In my opinion though, the hotel has a strange atmosphere. It feels dated although... More

Again -... More

This hotel is perfect for anyone on vacation or business if you value central location and are most of the time on the move. Rooms are basic, clean and nice. Buffet breakfast offers plenty of choise. Hotel facilities are quite small but it did not bother since we spent very little time in hotel, practically only sleeping. Location is as... More

The hotel is directly in the center of Oslo and therefore in walking distance of most important monuments. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very edgy and modern furnitured, clean and quiet. Unfortunately, the AC can't be controlled in your room. Also they have some issues with their elevators, as both elevators are not combined and therefore... More

The hotel is nothing to write home about. Small "family size" room, dated look and feel, not as clean as it should be. However, a couple of things saves this place from a bad rating: 1) Location: Right off Karl Johans Gate, next to Parliament and National Theater. Around the corner from City Hall and the harbor. This is ideal... More

The Rica Victoria hotel is located in the central of Oslo. My room was very nice and quiet but with no view. The room was clean and the stuff were very nice and professional. Breakfast was good. The hotel holds a few pairs of Bikes thar are given free of charge to gusts. The room rate was fair

Actually, with one exception, I have only positive things to say about this hotel: perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, ok breakfast, etc. However, my room in the 5th floor had one decisive disadvantage. I have traveled a lot over the past 25 years and I think I have a good basis for comparison. This room had the most noisy... More
