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

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

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
