Stayed here on a business trip. The hotel is modest but good and offers value for money. The restaurant was not appealing so I gave it a miss. Breakfast is ok but not spectacular. If you book a room make sure to get one at the back of the hotel and not on ground level because of noise. Its nice... More

I stayed at this apparently very modest hotel in connection with a seminar and was very happy about it all. Good beds, high quality insulation and not a sound from outside (even though my room was located on the ground floor with the day-and-night shuttle bus stop just outside my window), good cleaning and very professional and friendly staff.

Rooms are decent however everything got stuck in the 70's. Just a shower no bath. NO safe in the room. Breakfast was good. 3 mile taxi ride from airport was US$50 Back and forth to Oslo would be around US$500!!!!! So we rented a Tesla S for US$250 :) and had a great dinner in Oslo at the Hard Rock

Norway is not cheap, so if you look at the price compared to services offered, would stay here again. Keep in mind that this is an airport hotel, so in the close area there is nothing much to do. Stayed here for 3 days business trip, staff very friendly, and loved the breakfast with so many choices. The reception kept... More

I had an early flight to Berlin this Christmas and decided to stay at one of the hotels close to the airport for one night. The receptionist on duty during my stay was very friendly and helpful, and I had a nice conversation with her about everyday life while waiting for my taxi. Don't know her name, but she was... More

Good location, not so clean rooms, terrible breakfast most served feelt days old, not fresh. Very small rooms, no extra pillows, no extra blankets and very limited channel options on the tv. The whole place feels like it need an up-grade. Best is bus outside direct to the terminal but they charge $10 per person for that service.

This hotel provides what can be expected for an airport hotel of this price and standard, nothing more nothing less. Not too close to the airport, but quite distant from anything else. We had a conference there for a week, and were not entirely satisfied with the level of communication between conference department and restaurant. The situation was however afterwards... More

I reserved one night at the RIca, Gardemoen for one night b4 flying out from Oslo airport. Was very happy and couldn't understand the rather low rating of this hotel in relation to other Gardemoen hotels. I got a 50% price reduction through booking.com and paid little more than 600 Norwegian Kroner. Anyone who has traveled to Norway and stayed... More

I`m not too impressed by the hotel, but the price was okay. The service was ok, the staff was friendly enough. Breakfast is not exceptional, but as everything else at the hotel: OK. Location is great though, with air port shuttle.
