Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica

Located in the surrounding hills of Oslo, the hotel allows fabulous views over the city centre and the Oslo Fjord.

Parts of the hotel date back to 1894 and the "National romantics" period. A rich cultural inheritance is blended with all the "mod con" facilities of a first class hotel.
