I really enjoyed my three night stay at this excellent hotel. Located on a mountain near the very impresive Holmenkollen ski jump it offers a fantastic view over Oslo city and fyord. The hotel has a beautiful old wooden part with a very homely atmosphere. My room was located in the new part of the hotel and featured modern minimalist but highly functional interior which left nothing to be desired. Just the right size, too.
Food was of above average quality - one of the better dining experiences I've had in Norway.
I was especially inpressed by the very well equipped gym in the basement which could put some of the public gymns I've visited in my life to shame. There's a swimming pool, too, so bring your bathing trunks.
Staff spoke excellent English (but who doesn't, in Norway) and was very helpful.
It really puzzles me how anybody could rate this excellent hotel as "poor" or "terrible" - an annoying detail cannot possibly make the whole hotel a dump....
I liked the Holmenkollen Parc Hotel Rica very much and would go there again, great location for a conference.
