We choose this hotel because of the good reviews of the breakfast. We love extraordinary breakfasts, but this hotel is only average overall. I am asking myself why so many gives this hotel 5 stars. The rooms has been newly renovated to an average standard. But for you guys that love excellent breakfasts, choose another hotel. We will next time... More

I spent three nights at the Rica Victoria in January. Location is excellent, only a few minutes walk from the subway station, and with very good rail connections to Gardemoen airport. Restaurants & shops are a short walk away. Staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Probably the stand-out feature was the buffet breakfast - great variety, delicious, beautifully presented.

Nice hotel with central and good location, 2 min from karl johan street or aker brygge. Rooms are newly renovated and modern decor but the best is the breakfast, very very good with lots of choices and good quality.

I found this to be a very decent place, but nothing memorable and hardly beautiful. But absolutely everything worked about it. And the location was really good, just between the harbour and the main square. Yes, the breakfast was good too. I did find a deserted and empty box of takeaway food in the elevator in the morning, which I... More

Only been to Oslo once, so have no local yardstick; but this seemed a very good hotel (better than many TA reports suggest); we paid about £100 for 2 people, with breakfast - probably OK for central Oslo. And it is central, close to numerous restaurants, the National Gallery, the port. Clean, well-run, friendly service. Rooms are on the small... More

Me and our group stayed there for one night now in October. I am sure we started out at the wrong foot with the hotel manager,, the reason was that one of us flaunted a nearly empty bottle of schnapps in the lobby, not unpolite in any way, just making fun and with good intensions. After this the manager later... More

This Hotel is situated only a few hundred metres from the Stortinget (parliament) in Oslo. It is very very central. That beign said, Oslo city centre is not very big and any hotel within this area is very convenient and walkable. It took me about 15 minutes leisurely walk from the Central train station to the hotel. The nearer train... More

The rooms was nice and clean. The breakfast buffeet was ok. A little noisy and not so much room. The beds was ok, did sleep well there. The hotel had a nice location to things around. We didnt stay to much at the hotel so cant say to much about it. But we had a nice time there.

This hotel is very centrally located. It's one of the limited hotels that would allow 3 adults in a room so we were provided with an extra bed. It cluttered the room a bit but there was still space to walk around. The only grouse was that the window opened into the restaurant below. I would have preferred an outdoor... More
