I stayed at this hotel for three nights in March, during the National Championships in volleyball for 15-year-olds. Because of the nationals, the staff had quite a hectical time, with hundreds of children from all over the country. In my opinion, they coped with their many guests in a very good way.
The room I stayed in was quite big, with a spectacular view from the 16th floor. Totally, there were over 20 floors, and the breakfast was eaten on the top floor. The view was fantastic and the food was good.
The hotel even had an elevator on the outside of the building, and I found it pretty exciting using it. However, this elevator is not for people who are scared of heights. A minor disadvantage was that the hotel only had three elevators. Combined with it's many floors which made it unpractical to use the stairs, this caused many waits for the elevator. The many guests made it even harder, and during breakfast time it was impossible using the crowded elevators.
Anyway, the location of the hotel was perfect. After arriving the airport, I bought tickets for the bus, and it stopped only 200 meters from the hotel. The hotel was also located next to the Stavanger Idrettshall, where the nationals were hold. Many big sports events take place here and I recommend Rica Forum Hotel if you are going to one of them.
