    the service and menu in the restaurant were very good. We arrived late at night but were able to get a meal. The breakfast selection was exceptional in choice and quality. The staff remember us and were very helpful

    The hotel was hard to locate at night and coming from airport on shuttle service.We missed the drop off and had to back track from the city central bus station which meant we were on the opposite side of the highway to the hotel. The hotel was not well signed which we commented on to reception staff, who stated we were not the only ones who had had similliar experieces in locating the hotel. This is not a complaint just an observation

    Location near to son's home is key. Also it is clean, comfortable with a good breakfast.

    No problems. We were moved to a new room quickly by staff due to a neighbouring room party.

    The room and facilities are new and well maintained.The breakfast is good.

    The hotel is located outside of the city map tourists can get at museums.

    Comfortable, nice room with view over the city. The breakfast was particularly good. Staff were helpful and pleasant. It also offered free parking which was essential to us as we were touring the country but wanted to visit the city.

    Good hotel with a very good breakfast.

    It is a noise due to the autoway next to the hotel. Forget it if you like fresh air while sleeping, It is impossible to sleep while the window is open.

    Good hotel, and very good breakfast, near to major public transportation station. Free parking too.

    Very pleasant, modern, comfortable hotel with one of the most comprehensive breakfast choices I encountered. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good too. For Norway the costs of accommodation and food was pretty reasonable

    It's miles away from anywhere except Helsfyr itself. On the map it looked as though it was close to the congress centre at Lillestrom. It isn't (a 50-minute bus ride). And it's a long way out of Oslo too. Great if you have a car but taxis in Norway are extortionate.

    Excellent breakfast and helpful staff

    Not a great location, near a busy road, no temp control in room and room was very hot, opening the window made it very noisy all night from traffic noise. Stayed in superior room which was not as advertised and dirty, coffee on wall, toiletries in bathroom used - yuck.

    Parking close to the hotel, breakfast

  • Older travelers

    The rooms are well and clever equipped, big enough and the beds are good. The breakfast is fantastic and the staff very helpful. The metro is nearby and the price is (for central Oslo) reasonable. The atmosphere is very 'Oslo': modern, businesslike and not romantic at all. But Oslo is no Vienna, so it suits a Oslo trip perfectly.

    Nothing. One small thing: the rooms lack a water cooker, so bring it yourself to mega-expensive Oslo.

    Rica still provides smoking rooms! That's a service I appreciate and I do give these my preference and hope they will stay with that policy.
