You get what you pay for, and in Norway that doesn't mean much. I'm a Norwegian raised in the U.S., and that's my only tie in to Norway. I travel to and from Norway relatively often staying in various areas in Oslo and Østfold (Eastfold). This includes Fredrikstad. Rica City Hotel has a great location, dab smack in the middle...

The hotel is in the middle of the city, so it has a great location. We just needed a place to sleep for one night. When it comes to our room, it did the trick - but it was small and have a average standard. Nothing more and nothing less. The bed was small, maybe a queen size or nothing... More

If you are looking for a central hotel in Fredrikstad, look no further. The hotel is in the middle of central Fredrikstad, so it has a great location. The staff is very friendly and they'll do the best for you to enjoy your stay. The hotel offers also two nice restaurants with very good food, and a cozy bar if... More

Stayed here for one night and I won't do it again. The good thing about this hotel was the air conditioning was excellent but nothing else was. The room was quite run down, the woman at the front desk was not welcoming at all, the parking spaces in their downstairs garage were way too small. The good thing about this... More

Soon to be a Scandic hotel we can feel that the standard is more Swedish than Norwegian. It is nothing wrong to it, but it does not fell at the top any more. The standard is OK, but nothing that you remember as very good or excelent. To sleep for a night or two it is OK, but not for... More

I stayed two nights at this hotel in may 2014. The staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Clean room with air-condition. The shower was a bit "shabby", but the rest of the bathroom was just fine. Central location in the city center, a few minutes walk from the river. Good breakfast with both hot and cold dishes.

I have stayed in this hotel many times, and I'm rarely disappointed. The room we (my brother and sister) stay in is an executive room with double bed, single bed, and a sofa and chairs. It's very comfortable, fantastic beds (pillows superb), large bathroom with walk in shower - no complaints! Clean!! Breakfast is limited but there is enough food... More

Stayed one night at the hotel due to a businesstrip to Fredrikstad. It's a calm, nice hotel in city center, with quite large rooms and amazingly comfortable beds. Loved the duvet and great pillows - they have a pillow menu for you to chose from in case you don't like the down pillows at the room. Nice sized bathroom with... More

I have stayed more than a thousand nights at hotels around the World, but this hotel is simply the worst. I got a room at the third floor, but for some reason the elevator had not a stop at that level, so you had to take the elevator to the fourth floor and take the stairs down. Well, I went... More
