Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica are delighted once! I felt like he refined it, but situated so that guests can see the famous ski jump, as well as the maximum of the panorama of Oslo!I believe that this hotel is an excellent design (a combination of 2 times and 2-spirit, past and present of Norway), fine cuisine, restaurant, thanks to chefs!This hotel is suitable for guests with inquiries and for the lowly turists.staff courteous and knowledgeable.Twin Room spacious and comfortable, as well as at the very teplo.Chistaya bed, bath, hair dryer, a shampoo, shower gel, bath salt.At any time you can boil water in a room and make tea or coffee (which I think is important as well as an amateur travel)I visited Oslo for the first time and it was my first otel.I love the first look.For me, this hotel will remain a legend ...

Booked this hotel from the pictures - very Norwegian. Found it easily arriving by car - parking is expensive but you really don't have a choice unless you want to leave your car 200 yards down the road in an unlit car park. Room was comfortable, but no view in the new wing. Breakfast was great in the large dining room with the outside waterfall. Main problem is if you don't want to use your car, it is a good walk down to the railway station (if it is working - it was closed for repairs in July 2011) or bus which will take you to Majorstuen station and from there you can catch a train unless they stop them for some reason, but the buses are great with the drivers mostly very helpful. Staff very friendly at the hotel and very comfortable overall. Not convenient if you want to be closer to the city.

The hotel is located close to a popular hiking and cross-country ski area and in walking distance from Norway's main ski arena (cross-country and jump). From the hotel there is a scenic view of Oslo. If you are not very interesting in skiing you will probably find the place a little deserted. It is possible to take the metro downtown, but it is quite slow.

The was a lot of noice in the room, probably from some kind of air conditioning system so I did not get much sleep.

Stayed here two nights for a work event and the only negative thing was that i did NOT get enough time to spend in my junior suite on the 5th floor - work kept me busy all day and evening. On first glance the room appeared quite ordinary... facing to the rear of the hotel without a view, but then I climbed the winding staircase to arrive in a darling little lounge area with the most wonderful view over Nordmarka (the hills to the north of Oslo) to the right and the town and fjord to the left. Sliding doors opened (easily) onto a fine balcony complete with small table and chairs. This would be a perfect spot to relax after a day's sightseeing down town or indeed an active afternoon's skiing in the hills nearby. The bed was big and comfortable. The window beside the bed could be opened and that's not always possible in hotels.

The breakfast selection was top class, but so are the prices at this exclusive hotel. Nevertheless, it would certainly warrant a private visit for a special occasion or holiday of a lifetime.

This hotel is quite a way from the city center, but right beside the wooded hills and Oslo's top Holmenkollen Ski Jump attraction. The metro stops nearby, though be prepared for a bit of an uphill walk to hotel. A taxi from the lively Majorstuen shoping and eating area would cost ca nok 250.

My room was in the new part of the hotel. Try for a room as high up as possible, and do stop to take a photo from the top floor elevator lobby.

I have stayed in the old part of the hotel before - on the ground floor - and this very pleasant room also had a nice, though not as spectacular, view.

Highly recommended if you want to spoil yourself or a loved one.

Room Tip: Ask for new part of hotel and a high room with a view.

We stayed at the Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica for three nights as all other hotels in Oslo center were full. The hotel is about a 20 minute T-Bane ride from the city center. (When visiting Oslo, be sure and get an "Oslo Pass" which will cover public transportation and many museum admission fees). Once you exit the T-Bane, you need to walk 10 minutes straight up a steep hill to the large hotel. The hotel architecture is a combination of modern and old world. The hotel overlooks Oslo and the water. Our bedroom and bathroom were both extremely large and well appointed. Linens were clean and fluffy. Our room was on the first floor and was very quiet. The breakfast buffet was terrific with an enormous selection of delicious foods. The staff was helpful. There are two restaurants in the hotel, one very expensive and the other slightly less so. Go for the less expensive one. You can walk to the famous Holmenkollen ski jump, which is located next to the hotel.

Room Tip: When visting Oslo, be sure to get the "Oslo Pass", which covers all public transportation...
