“Very, very good hotel to stay in”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

I have spent only one night in Rica Airport hotel in Stavanger, so my opinion my not be backed up by a long stay experience, however :

The good :
1. location by the airport and close to the city. It might get a bit of noise from the airport, but not in the level that would disturb or cause any discomfort. Rooms are quite well noise-isolated.
2. staff and service - I was greeted with a big smile and friendly conversation and I felt really welcome. Check-in was fast and smooth, maybe 3 minutes in all, and I was on my way to my room. Check-out was equally smooth, fast and professional. I experienced the same type of friendly, warm welcome at the restaurant. Ladies working in there were very polite, attentive and professional, with real, not fake or trained smiles. I have been offered a recommendation and as a result I had on of the best lambs I have ever had. Really delicious. Compliments to the chef.
3. food - that deserves a separate point. Apart from delicious lamb or sola soup I had for dinner, I was recommended to take time for breakfast. I was told at check-in that the hotel was just awarded 3rd place for breakfast quality. Well, I would like to see the winner if what I got was 3rd place. Buffet-type breakfast with huge variety of nicely laid out food. All fresh, all delicious. If you have time - sit and enjoy. Bread was of particularly great quality and taste.
4. Rooms - there is enough space and they are clean, however, in the bathroom you might see some areas where paint job or cleaning could be applied. That would be my only remark, apart from too soft beds (sorry, I prefer hard ones). Furniture is modern, internet works fine and fast, there is also TV service and movie library to be used but I haven't tried it so ... no opinion.


I haven't found anything really to complain. If you are looking for a good quality hotel - look no more - chose this one and enjoy it, plus enjoy the food, as much as I enjoyed it.

Very conveniently located hotel a few steps from the main airport terminal. Very friendly and welcoming personnel. Standard rooms are small but nicely decorated and furnished. A couple of cardio tools as well as a nice sauna compliment the small gym facility. Absolute stunning breakfast with fresh juices, smoothies, egg dishes, freshly made pancakes, various fish, cheese and meat choices, cakes, breads/rolls & croissants, cereals and much more…delicious.
Will come back for my next stay in Stavanger/Sola, that's for sure!

Firstly key card didn't work, then internet was so poor it was unusable and to top it all the shower was cold and would not warm up. At over £200 a night this was rubbish. Reception staff on arrival were friendly but on leaving i was not asked how my stay was and therefore had no chance to get my complaints aired - they seemed pleased to get rid of everyone as quickly as possible. Room was clean and fine though

We arrived at midnight, received a warm welcome and were checked in within minutes. Our room on the fourth floor was reasonably large and almost perfect. As with Rica Park Hotel, the towels could be a little larger and a better quality. Although the hotel is situated right beside the terminal, the rooms are so well insulated that we heard no aircraft noise at all.

The breakfast is exceptional – one of the best in Norway.

I was flying in late to then spend a day of business before flying back out and this hotel suited perfectly. I was able to walk directly out if the terminal and into the hotel. Service was good, room was a decent size and very comfortable. Ordered room service which was tasty and it ticked all the boxes for what I needed. Externally it's an ugly looking building but once your inside that's quickly forgotten.

Great hotel, not near the city centre but depends what you want. Breakfast is simply outstanding, best I've ever had and seen! Gym is very very limited but there's a sauna too. Overall a very nice hotel and pleasant people.
