“Historic hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

This hotel is in a beautiful historic building very close to the main walking promenade. The rooms are clean and comfortable with very comfortable beds. We had a lovely view of the river. Service was friendly. The hotel lobby is a comfortable meeting place. The breakfast buffet was great, with traditional Nordic fare such as pickled herring and cheese, as well as yogurt, fruit, eggs, meats. I would definitely come back!

Room Tip: Rooms toward the river side have a lovely view.

The Rice Victoria Hotel was in the centre of town and had a lovely breakfast with lots of gluten-free options. The room was average and the bathroom tired. Staff were lovely and there are lots of good restaurants and night-life options close to hotel.

Stayed here for one night. The hotel is located next to the "Gågata", the promonade in Lillehammer. Everything is in walking distance.
The rooms are good, but have probably not been renovated for some time. The bathrooms however, are fresh. Beds are good. During summer the rooms facing the hill can be varm in the mornings, and the rooms facing the lake can be varm in the evenings.
A good choice of food and drinks for breakfast. The reception is friendly and service minded. Free parking.

Spent two nights here in november 2013. The staff was all friendly and service-oriented. They had a pillow-menu in the rooms, several pillows to choose from (including one for allergic people). Beds were heavenly to sleep in. Breakfast was great and I'd visit this hotel again.

Why only 4 stars? Because even though they have a few handicap-rooms, they are not handicap-friendly (other then helping with the luggage if needed). There wasn't a single parkingspot ment for those in need of it, and there were no wheelchair-ramp to get into the hotel (only stairs). I hope they fix this, so more people can enjoy this hotel.

Still though, I highly recommend this hotel.

As with the rest of Lillehammer, the hotel hasn't really been updated since the 1994 Olympics with possibly the exception of the bathrooms. We had a double which had a sitting room. Lots of windows - sketchy balcony. Desk staff is very welcoming and friendly. And there was free parking. Could have used a ramp for suitcases. Keep the room blinds closed in the summer - afternoon sun really bakes the room and no A/C. Breeze was great and we had a very good sleep. Breakfast was pretty good. Meats/cheeses/salmon/eggs/sausage/potatoes. But they also had do it yourself waffles.

Stayed here for one night with husband and two teenage daughters. Rooms fine, very comfortable beds. Breakfast buffet very good, plenty of choice. Free wifi in rooms, big deal for us with two teenagers. Fairly near to train station, walkable anyway, and close shops and restaurants Lillehammer has to offer.

I stayed one night at Rica Victoria this August, and i am all over satisfied with my stay.
The welcome was very good, the front desk staff is lovely.
They have good parking and its free for hotel guests.
The room was nice with a lounge and a good view.
The fitness area needs an upgrade, but you can use a gym in the city centre free of charge.
Breakfast is as always at Rica hotels very good.
The cleaning was ok, but not perfect.

Room Tip: Superios rooms are nice.
