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

I stayed a couple of times in this very nice hotel. The rooms are very nice, especially thy have very good beds. Also the restaurant is serves good food. The direct area around the hotel is not that interesting. There is a sport arena, but it is possible to take a metro or a walk to the city center. For... More

I had a business trip a few weeks ago, and I stayed at the Rica Helsfyr hotel. Getting right into the things, the service was good, with breakfast including an open buffet of a very good selection, tho nothing special. The value was very good considering the services rendered. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were sufficient. The cleaning... More

Good Hotel. Perfect location. Bus express from Airport stop in 5 min walk. 4 stops to city center by underground. Nice breakfast. The hotel restaurant menu is OK, but the choice is not that big. Good Wi fi

I have used this hotel for several business trips due to it's location. It seems like most people here visits for business reasons. The rooms are of a good size, and they are clean. The staff is friendly, and the breakfast is good. That's the good stuff. The training room is very disappointing, and can hardly be called a training... More
