Central location, comfortable and well furnished rooms. Lavish breakfast in the remarkably 'grande' dining room was cool. Perfect location near the harbour, restaurants and the 'most visited' sights. Summer heat of Oslo needs to be addressed better by the hotel ( effective airconditioning, perhaps !!).

Some very odd things. It's a heat wave in Oslo and the rooms have no AC. Well, that can't be helped. At least a fan is provided. But some genius designed the wiring so that the only way to turn off the entry way lights is to kill the main switch. No light but also no fan... Not the end... More

Good location for train from airport and local shopping/dining. Rooms very comfortable, nicely furbished and good size. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was good. If you like to upgrade your accommodation from other Rica hotels across the street, this is the one for you.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) who stayed here for a weekend (Friday to Sunday) in april 2013, and the hotel was really nice, even though the price was not the cheapest (you get what you pay for.) The room was big enough and the food variety was good. The location of the hotel is... More

This hotel is perfectly situated within Oslo, just a short walk to the harbor/castle/peace center, and also a short walk to the museums and the Royal Palace as well. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. Rooms are well appointed, clean and very comfortable. We had a room with an extra bed which gave plenty of space for 4. The breakfast... More

The stuff is very friendly and a hotel is neet and tidy. Breakfast is excellent and reccomendable. Rooms are clean, but try to choose upper floors and windows facing to the outside of the hotel to the street. The inside rooms are facing to the breakfast hall and has the ventilation which could not be switched off and is a... More

Stayed here one night in July. The location is as central as it can be in Oslo, with the main street Karl Johan and the tube station Nationaltheateret just some footsteps away. Good and varied complimentary breakfast, but the restaurant got very crowded around 9:30 a.m. All in all a recommendable place to stay in Oslo!

This hotel is probably one of the best ones I've yet visited. The only down to it might be the cost of parking, but I guess that's expected from a city as expensive as Oslo. The rooms are very well finished, clean, very cozy and comfortable. Staff is friendly and always treated us with a smile. Breakfast was very varied... More

We stayed for two nights and found the room to be dark and very dated. The bathroom was old and tired and the room very hot. We needed to remove our duvet and use the cover as a sheet as it was just too hot. The reception area is rather spartan and the elevators were not working regularly. The corridors... More
