        It was silent, the room confortable and a with nice breakfast buffet.

        You have to pay in advance a refundable 'insurance' that cost the 30% of the room. They pay back befroe one week after your staying.

        Location, prepared a breakfast beg for us for early departure.

        Very small room in the ethics. Low tilted ceiling is a hazard. Failed to give us a wake-up call.

        Excellent breakfast, good location, clean & quiet room, free wi-fi, good value for money

        My credit card was preauthorized, after a week the money still didn't get back

        Breakfast - very well organised and god choice. Lovely staff.

        Noise of trams from the street below

        The breakfast was very good. High variety of warm and cold dishes. Friendly staff. The room had a nice balcony and you can enjoy the sun in the morning. Nice location and quiet.

        The sliding glass doors to close the shower did not work properly so the water was going out underneath them and we had to put some of the towels on the floor. Also, we had a problem with the mattress that was too soft and this got solved on the third night.

        8.2

        The location is great, walking distance to the center. There are several places to have dinner nearby + 2 gourmet supermarkets (just next door). Breakfast is excellent, big choice and fresh products.

        Bathroom in our (standard) room would need some redecorating.

        Location

        The room charge and minibar is far too expensive

        6.2

        Small bedroom for a couple and a baby child. So the price was a bit high for such room. And it was during easter, so other rooms were available, I mean bigger rooms in terms of space, and for the same price I believe

      • Couple
        8.2

        Rooms were comfortable and the breakfast very good.

        Bathroom very small, and rooms facing the road can be noisy due to the trams going past.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Close to centre and tram routes

        Very icy around entrance whereas adjacent premises had cleared the footpaths

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        Great, nice hotel, seems to be excellent value for money.

        There a very few smoking rooms, which of course is nice if you don't smoke, but annoying if you do.

      • Single

        The Rica Holberg is a comfortable hotel located in a great spot if you are interested in visiting Oslo. It is close to everything including some great restaurants and local sights. Staff members were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. I enjoyed my stay.

        The only not-so-good thing about my stay was something that the Hotel had no control over, namely the roadwork that was going on outside.
