As others have noted, the location is excellent. I was here on business because of the university next door, so it was particularly good, but also nice in the evening -- easy walking distance to downtown and the harbor. The building is oldish, with zigzagging hallways, but that's just what gives the place its atmosphere. On the downside, there's just...

Scandic Holberg (previously Rica Holberg) is in central Oslo. The tram stops just outside the hotel but it’s also just 700 meters to the closest railway station Nationaltheatret where you’ll find commuter trains, regional trains and the airport train.

The hotel is functional but not particularly comfortable. The rooms are small and the beds tiny, especially for a couple. However, the desk staff are super helpful and the breakfast buffet is excellent in the selection of food. My only critique of the breakfast is that the fruit wasn't ripe.
