I recently stayed at the Rica Park Hotel - on business. The hotel is well located in central Stavanger and within easy walking distance of the down town waterfront attractions. The Rica Park is a 4 star hotel - but is in need of some modernisation. The rooms are comfortable and clean but the sound proofing against traffic noise could... More

We stayed at Rica Park for a 2 night stay in Stavanger. We hadn't investigated much (besides Pulpit Rock) and the staff were very helpful guiding us to ferries, restaurants and museums. Furthermore, we brought some alcohol from the airport - the staff kindly gave us a bucket of ice; we asked for packed lunches for the day trip and... More

The hotel has a perfect location, close to the station and to the city center. The breakfast is really good and the staff is nice and friendly. There is a free parking just across the street but you have to get the code from the reception first. Next time I visit this city I will stay in Rica hotel again.

Just received an email that the construction they had planned for this coming December would now take place this summer and the hotel would be closed. Lisa Holm, the Font Office Manager, offered to assist me in rebooking another hotel and gave 3... More

The staff are friendly, but during the evening I almost felt sorry for the receptionist having to work alone with the bar and front desk. With two new floors being built, it also looks more like a buildning site than a hotel from the outside, and this can often be heard during the day. Still this is only temporary. The... More

Just been in January, the hotel is under refurbischment and a lot of noise if made by the works. Staff are nice and cheerful and ready to answer positively your request. Unfortunately, the hotel is rather average and needs a complete upgrade. rooms are clean but a bit of old fashion. Would not pop in again.

My wife and I enjoyed a great night and breakfast. Very helpful check-in staff. She gave us good info about special deal for upgrade to junior suite which we took. It was large quiet room on 6th floor. No bath was available in any of the vacant suites unfortunately. Breakfast was outstanding. Much better choice than typical Norwegian hotels. Location... More

I have used several hotels in the area during a variety of assignments. Even though the hotels is undergoing renovation, the stay felt perfect from the first moment. Friendly, professional staff, nice clean room and easily the best breakfast of hotels in Stavanger - energy shots, fresh food and free papers. Strange that the price is lower than with several...
