“I wish I could use multiple ratings --Garage WARNING!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

I think the hotel, room, breakfast were all very good. The only negative thing I have about them is the blackout drapes aren't blackout and when sunset is after 10pm and sunrise before 0430...
Now the garage...I had an unfortunate experience with a corner in the garage. I've been living in Europe for almost 6 months and have seen some tiny spaces, but this one is the absolute worst. And the parking was 680 SEK ($103) for 3 nights.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room away from the street and got a room right on the main street with lots of h...

The Rica Victoria is in a good location--right near the water, the Nobel Museum and Akershus Fortress. Nearly a straight shot on Karl Johansgate from the train station. Good area for cafes and restaurants, free internet in the lobby. The bathroom was spacious and even though we had a street view, it was quiet. The breakfast spread was hands down the was the best of this trip, which took us to Stockholm (2 hotels), Oslo and Bergen.

Seemed nice in the web.Once arrived immediately realized that it did not deserved to be a 4 stars but a 3 stars hotel. Was given only one medium sized towel and a small one. Room was very small, bed was very small. Minibar was poor and included and bottle a white wine that was already opened and refilled with something else. At least reception was professional and gentle. Unacceptable as a 3 stars, would have not minded if it was presented as a 3 stars and much lower price. Location is good. You are next door to ORO, a very nice bar grill and restaurant.

Situated in close vicinity to the Royal Palace, the Parliament, the National Theatre and the City Hall you would expect some disturbance, but the hotel turns out to be in a very quiet spot.

With regard to the hotel itself it offers nice rooms, an excellent breakfast and a friendly and efficient staff.

Stayed for a week and will not hesitate to recommend the services of the Rica Victoria Hotel

A very nice breakfast to start the day, I would really recommend to improve the coffee. Variety of cold and hot food, fresh juice as well, fresh baked pastries too. They are famous for their breakfast in Oslo apparently.

Its a big hotel about 7 mins from National theator train station, so easy to get to and in the center. You can request any room preference and they are mostly gracious enough to oblige. The bar is also good and open till 11AM. There is no restaurant but they do have room service which I didn't use. This is not a problem as there are many options 2 mins walk away.

If you need to use an iron, you have to use a ironing room, strange they cant provide this simple thing in the room. Rooms have trouser presses but you have to go to the ironing room for a shirt. But based on experience in other hotels in the center, this is not unusual, but quite strange for me.

Would definitely stay here again though as overall it is a good place and good value too.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are quite big

Great hotel, fantastic breakfast, slow elevators but hey, not everything can be peachy!
The staff are very nice, the reception welcomed us warmly. We got a nice room on the 9th floor. We had an outdoor "area", not a balcony yet it was nice to be able to stretch your legs a little more than just in the room. Breakfast was very good and the hotel clean and neat. I would stay there again!

Room Tip: Exterior rooms are best.
