    the location is perfect, it's in the center of Oslo, with lots of shops and restaurants, and on walking distance from public transport.

    Rica Travel Hotel is conveniently located in the centre of town. The rooms have all modern comfort, including a richly filled minibar. The breakfast combines traditional continental breakfast with Norwegian specialities.

    The check in time is too late. We had reached Oslo in the morning but we could not get the room till 2.30PM in the afternoon. It would have been really nice if we could check in bit early

    The hotel is perfectly located near Karl Johann Gate. The breakfast is great. The staff is very helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are shiny clean.

    The twin room is very small. I had trouble organizing space staying there myself, hard to imagine what it would have been for two people.

    everybody was very kind, the rooms were small but totaly okay and we felt very good during this night, espescially the breakfast was fantastic with something for everybody. but the best thing was the location, in the middle of the center and 10 min to walk from the central station

    the beds were maybe a bit too soft

    Great location in a quiet street of downtown Oslo. Good service and polite staff. Breakfast was good and presented with a good selection at the buffet.

    Did actually book a standard double room, but was placed in a single room. Quite small room, and noise from elevator, but ok.

    The location is superb! Walk to everything. Convenient to public transportation, the harbor, and shopping. Marvelous breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff.

    While the room was of good size and well appointed, there was an architectural pier in the center of the room.

    The hotel was fine, well situated but lacked a bit of care & warmth. The rooms on the front can be noisy.

    Noisy rooms on the front (next to a loud music bar)
