    I rent a single room for 2 nights but the room was close to the main street that noisy was unavoidable. Couldn't sleep well because of the Tram/Bus travelling outside the hotel as well as the frequent the siren of the emergency service vehicles. The room was extreme small that movement inside the room was so limited. On the second day when I was having breakfast in the dinning room where the alarm was suddenly activiated. I followed the customers to walk out of the hotel but I was not told for any reason of the alarm being activated. I was too desperate at that moment as my travel document and luckage was still kept inside the room. Service provided by the staff of this hotel was considered not too helpful.

    close to the central station that facilitate travellers to go between airport thro central station to Oslo City Centre.

    Very good

    Position was fantastic

    On booking my email request for a bath tub and quiet room was not replied to.On arrival the only way I could get the above was to upgrade the room. Our room was very quiet - so much so that we slept in and missed our first breakfast!( Worth getting up for). The room had very little wardrobe and drawer space - we ended up living out of a suitcase. Overall very expensive, but perhaps that's Norway for you.

    Highly recommended! Great location, great price/quality ratio but above all I want to stand out the quality of the staff!

    Great location, good price/quality, but above all great staff! We spent a week across Norway and arriving to Rica Oslo Hotel july 31st at 11pm and the staff was absolutely outstanding regarding our needs (Child bed, flight tickets, city info,...). The best staff we met In Norway.

    Superb

    It is just beside the Central Train station and smack in the middle of the City centre. Staff service was also great, particularly a front desk officer, Marlen - she was amazing!

    The room was small - very european!

    Location to transportation and city centre

    Need to replace the mattress as it was so uncomfortable. The mattress was shocking, raised it with reception but nothing was done about it. It was a shame as everything else was great.

    The desk staff were courteous and helpful. The breakfast was very good and well laid out. The rooms were of adequate size.

    The scrambled eggs were not good. Too hard, cooked at too high temperature and for too long. Not at all as good as the scrambled eggs we had at Hotel Sture Plan in Stockholm -- which were heavenly. Soft and delicious, probably made with cream/milk, but not much. We gave up the scrambled eggs and had the boiled eggs which were good. The bacon was also too hard.

    The hotel locates just in front of the cenral station. Access is excellent. The room is clean with friendly staff.

    I would have been happier if I could watch BBC world news (although CNN was available). I was able to watch BBC either in Copenhagen or Lofoten.
