I stayed in the hotel for one night, and that was enough. Although the hotel is centrally located I got all things I needed, I did not like it there. On arrival we were welcomed by a nice receptionist. We could park in the garage under the hotel, which was nice in the cold weather (Parking is NOK150 per night).... More

Visited the show and christmas-buffet, had no room. Show ok. Christmas-buffet....well, like every other Christmas-buffet. Food ok, nothing to write home about when food is served like in the army. Waiter, with a smile and pleasant comments, was never to far away so beer, wine and water was never empty for long. Ok experience, nothing more.

This is a genuine Fredrikstad hotel. You can see and feel that this is a hotel that is owned and run by someone who loves their city and visitors. My organisation use this hotel frequently and the service is excellent every day and at all hours.

Stayed in City hotel with my brother and sister again at the end of october, and yet again we were pleased with our stay. Staff were friendly as always, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was good - although I wish they could provide anchovies!

I had to live in Fredrikstad for some months because of my job and I lived at the Scandic City. My superior room was nice and comfortable, and the hotel is located just in the city centre, which was nice because I could early walk around and do things after work. The breakfast buffet is amazing and there are plenty... More

I am just back from a stay at the Scandic City Hotel in Fredrikstad. I had a really enjoyable stay. Friendly and helpful staff, a really good breakfast buffet (I mean a really, really good breakfast buffet) with everything the heart could desire. Different types of bread, cereals, cold meats, cheeses, eggs (scrambled, boiled, fried), yoghurts, fruit, cereals, coffee, tea... More

This is a medium old, nice scandinavian hotel. Rooms, breakfast are really good quality. Personell are exceptional and really go out of the way to help you. Location in the heart of town is great and they have a great restaurant connected to the hotel as well.

Nice hotel, nice food, perfect spot in town. The only thing weird was the shower that would fall down everytime we would turn off the water. And the seagulls screaming, but of course no one can control that.

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...
