i really enjoyed my short stay at this hotel but was actually glad it was a short stay as the location is a little out of the way but the staff and hotel itself makes up for this. The restaurant is a little basic but very nice all the same and the rooms are very well maintained.

Hotel located in business district and hence convienient if you have meetings in Helsefyr - if you don't location is just rubbish. Rooms are OK, the breakfast good and the restaurant average and expensive. The service was overall good and the hotel is easy accessible from the airport (just go with the airport bus and you are dropped off 5... More

In june I stayed in this hotel for a conference. Hotel is located next to a highway, the citycentre is a few stops with the subway. For business purposes this hotel is allright for a touristic citytrip to Oslo I would recommend a hotel downtown. Staff was great, rooms spacious, modern and clean. Breakfast was good. The airportbus stops nearby.

I recently stayed in the Scandic for a week, the hotel is the typical business hotel. The rooms have the basics. Reception - The staff were excellent throughout, even when the door card system was on the blink! Overall, very approachable and efficient. Room - I had a twin room, all the basic items were in the room. The shower... More

I stayed in Scandic Helsfyr since I was doing business in the area. The hotel is a standard Scandic hotel. It delivers what you expect, no specific frills, but a decent sized room with an ok bathroom. Breakfast was good with the usual Norwegian selection of hot and cold dished. One of the advantages is the free parking compared to... More

It's rare for me to hand out the full five stars for a hotel, considering how picky I am, but this hotel stay has deserved it. I recently had to travel to Oslo to do some training, and this was the closest hotel. I didn't have high expectations, which is probably why I was so amazed by the stay. It... More

I spent 4 days here on business. The hotel apparently has two standards of room - the recently refurbished and the rest. I chose the latter because it saved me approx. £150. The room was clean but pretty basic with dark, chipped furniture. The restaurant was a disappointment because it has a very limited menu and the food it produces... More

Everything very average or slightly less. Visiter the very expensive (even for a hotel) hotel restaurant. Seated fairly quickly but after that it was hard to catch the attention of any of the waiters. Had a small burger with fries - both were "ready to eat" as they were somewhat on the cool side. Tap water was free.

The Rica hotel is located some 4 km from the city center. The hotel was located in an industrial area with loads of office buildings nearby and I also noticed that there were public transportations that would take you easily to the city center. The hotel had loads parking spaces outside and much to my surprise they were for free,... More
