Chic Business Hotel Near Train Station

Central City Center Location

The Rica Oslo Hotel is an ideal base for exploring the city on foot or by transit. Many restaurants, shops, and attractions surround the hotel, while the Oslo Central Station is less than a block away. Even though there's so much to do outside the hotel, staying in is just as enjoyable with the variety of on-site amenities and chic rooms. 

Walk to the Royal Palace

Start your day in Oslo with a generous free breakfast buffet. For lunch, visit the on-site Bjorvigen Mat & Vinhus restaurant for an extensive buffet, or you can order from the à la carte menu. Take a break at cocktail hour in the lobby bar. Catering to business travelers, this hotel offers a modern conference center, comfortable meeting rooms, and reception facilities.

Don't miss a workout just because you're away from home. Keep your exercise routine on schedule at the gym and then soothe your muscles in the sauna. If you've forgotten anything or need a last-minute souvenir, stop by the hotel gift shop.

Some of the city's best attractions are right at your doorstep at this hotel. It's just a 10-minute walk to the front gates of the Royal Palace. In the summertime, join one of the guided tours that embark from the west side of the Palace. Also within walking distance is the Oslo Opera House. This stunning angled building overlooks the water and invites visitors to climb the roof for a better view of the fjord. Don't miss seeing Edvard Munch's The Scream at the National Gallery.

Contemporary Rooms and Spacious Suites

Clean, chic, and decorated with brilliant pops of color, the rooms at Rica Oslo Hotel are a refreshing sight at the end of a long day. Check your email or Skype with friends on the free WiFi. Enjoy a spa-like shower with FACE Stockholm brand bath products. For more space, book a Superior Extra Room or a Junior Suite. Superior rooms include a sitting area with an armchair, while suites also offer a sofa.

The Bottom Line - 

Rica Oslo Hotel is an affordable choice for business travelers looking to save money during their next conference and for tourists who prefer to explore the city on foot. The nearby Grand Hotel Oslo boasts a spa, but otherwise it offers similar amenities as the Rica Oslo Hotel. However, the Grand Hotel Oslo charges about $100 more per night.

Rough Guide
This grand nineteenth-century building has been thoroughly refurbished both inside and out, but still retains fragments of its historic atmosphere.
