This Hotel is situated only a few hundred metres from the Stortinget (parliament) in Oslo. It is very very central. That beign said, Oslo city centre is not very big and any hotel within this area is very convenient and walkable. It took me about 15 minutes leisurely walk from the Central train station to the hotel. The nearer train station though, would be the National Theatre Station.
THis is my 3rd time to Oslo and I finally decided to stay here for a night rather than making it a day trip.
Its less than 5 minutes walk from the tourist strip of Karl's Johan Street, 10 minutes to the Presidential palace, 15-20 minutes walk to the world famous Oslo Opera House,which is facing the fjord. about 10-15 minutes train ride to the must-see Frogner Park.
The check in was fast and friendly. I was utilising my free night stay with Rica Park Hotels to book this hotel. The room I had was facing the street outside the hotel (think none of them have a good view, the hotel is located within the old city) Rooms vere cozy and the showers were great. Beds were a little too soft for my liking, as I prefer a firm bed.
Breakfast is in Norway, Oslo, or Rica Hotels is something I have come to expect after many visits to the wonderful country. They have a good selection of cold food as well as hot food for Asians like me, who must have something warm to eat.
All in all, its a nice hotel located centrally. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.
