    Very good

    The staff. Especially Tobbe on the reception desk who was very friendly and helpful , and special mention to Beatrice who works at the bar, she was very helpful and friendly. Location also was fantastic. I had a disabled room as I am in a wheelchair and it was a good room. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and I would reccomend this hotel to another wheelchair-user - BUT the hotel needs to put grab rails by the toilet in ALL of its disabled rooms, not just one of them! Staff had to move me from the original disabled room I booked to the one which actually had the grab rails, so they need to think about that. Grab rails in the bathroom are a pretty basic requirement for a disabled bathroom.

    The cleaning of my room was slovenly. Dirty glasses were left in my room for up to three days. The bed was made every day but that was about it - some days I did not get a clean facecloth. The floors did not appear to be swept and the bathroom counters were not wiped down. as by the end of my two week stay there, they were very dusty. No milk, tea or sugar in the tea/coffee making facility for my entire stay. Plus the cleaner actually bothered me andknocked on my door the morning of my departure and hung around, clearly expecting a tip - which was a bit of a cheek considering how slovenly his cleaning of the room had been. Breakfast was often cold, and breakfast staff unhelpful and unsmiling. I often skipped breakfast because of this.

    Superb

    I had a very pleasant stay in the Rica Victoria. It is right in the centre of town between the famous Karl Johan and the townhall- old harbour. Although the room was not very large it was very new, clean and comfortable. It also had a little desk and a sofa chair. Quit nice actually for a single room.

    The views to the outside were not great, but to the inside square it was very nice.

    Close to the National theater railway station, the harbour and the shopping centres

    I got a disabled persons room, while being fit and healthy. While I do not object to be put in such a room, I would like staff to indicate that this is such a room at check-in and have a change to change rooms.

    Very good

    The location is perfect, the staff very friendly so I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The included breakfast is very generous and varied. You won't even get this sort of choice and quality for paid breakfast at other hotels.

    The decoration and furniture in the rooms feel a bit old and low quality, but overall, the room is fairly spacious and comfortable. I would stay here again regardless.

    The Hotel was very comfortable and clean. The very friendly staff went out of their way to assist us. We checked in early just expecting to store our bags, but the staff member at the desk "Leo" checked and found us a vacant and clean room and we were able to get a room and key right away. We enjoyed our stay at the Rica Victoria Hotel immensely and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Oslo. I would definitely stay there again and the buffet breakfast was top notch.

    Excellent breakfast!

    Room was not very spacious and I have noticed now that the rate offered through Booked.net was 100NOK lower per night than what was charged.

    Good location; close to major city attractions, easyly accessible via public transport.

    Rooms having a window overlooking the indoor restaurant are somewhat not so nice.

    The breakfast was quite good.

    The rooms were not clean properly (Dust and hair). Carpet was filthy. Water boiler was unhealthy. Due to an extreme noise level our first room (9th floor) was changed. The bed was uncomfortable and it was very difficult to sleep two persons in it, being way too soft. The extra pillow in the cabinet was full of hair. The lunch/Xmas buffet came with a surprise, a black/short curly hair on the ham. The male receptionist should not be working in a service oriented job. He had a very arrogant attitude.
