“Good location, comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This hotel is perfectly situated within Oslo, just a short walk to the harbor/castle/peace center, and also a short walk to the museums and the Royal Palace as well. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. Rooms are well appointed, clean and very comfortable. We had a room with an extra bed which gave plenty of space for 4. The breakfast buffet is quite a nice spread with great breads, a variety of cold and hot options, nice fruit, juices and waffles. Parking is available on the street or in a garage nearby. Wifi is available as well.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room you can choose a room which faces the atrium.

The stuff is very friendly and a hotel is neet and tidy. Breakfast is excellent and reccomendable. Rooms are clean, but try to choose upper floors and windows facing to the outside of the hotel to the street. The inside rooms are facing to the breakfast hall and has the ventilation which could not be switched off and is a bit noisy. Anyway it works OK.
Hotel has a great location and if you are visiting Oslo as a turist it is very reccomendable.

Room Tip: Try to choose the room upper than 5th floor The rooms with windows facing to the breakfast hall has...

Stayed here one night in July. The location is as central as it can be in Oslo, with the main street Karl Johan and the tube station Nationaltheateret just some footsteps away.

Good and varied complimentary breakfast, but the restaurant got very crowded around 9:30 a.m.

All in all a recommendable place to stay in Oslo!

Stayed at rica Victoria over the weekend. It is in an ideal and central location close to everything. I booked a prepaid through Expedia an got a great rate as well. Given how expensive everything is in Oslo this hotel was a great value. Breakfast was very nice also. I highly recommend this property and will surely stay there in the future.

This hotel is probably one of the best ones I've yet visited. The only down to it might be the cost of parking, but I guess that's expected from a city as expensive as Oslo.
The rooms are very well finished, clean, very cozy and comfortable. Staff is friendly and always treated us with a smile.
Breakfast was very varied and had a nice selection of continental breakfast and regional options with different kinds of fruit, cereals, salmon, herring and, of course, bread.
The location is also great; at only a few steps from the "Oslo Radhus", the National theatre and a short walk from the opera, this place is ideal to visit the city centre by foot or on a bike.

I will definitely stay there again.

We stayed for two nights and found the room to be dark and very dated. The bathroom was old and tired and the room very hot. We needed to remove our duvet and use the cover as a sheet as it was just too hot. The reception area is rather spartan and the elevators were not working regularly. The corridors had large scuff marks on the walls and the carpet was worn in the are we stayed in.
Breakfast was excellent but when the breakfast room reaches capacity the area is roped off until there are more spaces available.
Great area, walked from here to almost all attractions. It is a safe area.

Well that was disappointing. I chose this hotel because it had decent reviews, had a good location and the website went on about how modernized it was and what a great first class business hotel it was with pictures of light rooms with wooden floors. Don't be fooled!
We booked a deluxe room (nothing deluxe about it I'm afraid) since we were traveling with our 12 year old and needed an extra bed. The first room they gave us was far from "light" as it had a small window overlooking the interior of the hotel - a window that couldn't be opened, and it was small and had a horrible, dark carpet. They managed to change our room to another "deluxe" room. Still had horrible dark carpeting, the extra bed was placed in front of the bathroom door so that anyone getting up at night would knock the door into the bed. It was on the 9th floor, had two windows - neither overlooking the street- one small one overlooking the internal roof the other a sort of internal roof top patio shared with another room. The only problem was the noise! The hotel's entire ventilation system was outside our windows, and even though we closed them, there was an eternal humming all the time..... Not to speak of our upstairs neighbors partying on their small balcony until 2am.... Then there were the bathroom fixtures that kept falling off every time you touched them. And let's talk about the included breakfast - there aren't enough tables to go around so you have stand in line (at one point there were 15 or so people waiting) and when you finally get a table, if you're unlucky you get to sit in a canteen style seating area next to people you've never met. We went one day then stuck to the bakery around the corner.....
Don't be fooled that parking isn't an issue. They have access to an expensive, smelly underground parking lot but can't reserve a space for you, so if you come with a car on a Friday or a Saturday night - you won't get a spot.....
The one positive thing I have to say about this hotel is the staff - they were all very friendly and did their best to fix any issues we had.
