I was about to give 2 stars, but thanks to the great service on my last day, I ended up to 3 stars. The best word to describe this hotel is "average". There is nothing wrong, but nothing superb either. I chose this hotel because of a conference in the nearby Radisson Blu -hotel, which had horribly expensive room rates....

This was overall a great place to stay, nice and quiet and comfortable (no iron or alarm clock in room). I arrived in Oslo by plane and took the Flybussen (airport bus) one way for 150k to the hotel which is the last stop. Hotel is very close to the Royal Palace and the main street which is a pedestrian...

It is very easy to get to this hotel from the airport: just take the airport bus and get off at the last stop. The Rica Holberg is only a hundred metres or so in front of you when you get off the bus. (the bus does take quite a while though, about 45-50 mins). I arrived at the hotel...

In a city where everything is expensive, it's important to find a good value hotel. Rica Holberg is located very near the Royal Palace and the metro stop called National Theater. Its very hard to get lost while you're exploring the beautiful town centre. Train station is a beautiful 1.5km walk away, it was lovely on a sunny afternoon. If...

The city is expensive :) in that perspective 130 € for 1 night (2 per) isn't that much. Hotel was clean, staff was very friendly and helpful. Well situated in the city, we went back and forth a couple of times during the day just on foot. Breakfast was delicious with lots of "fish" options, fruits, joghurts, waffles and cereals.I...

It's a rather small and cosy hotel close to the Royal Castle.The breakfast was good,and served till 11 during the weekends,perfect!The staff is helpfull and friendly. They have a small and quiet bar where we could relax after long days.The rooms vary,mine was small,but with a balcony. Well kept,and clean. Most of the sights in Oslo are in walking distance.
