        The view of the room, and the breakfeast.

      • Older travelers
        5.0

        Parking. 3-6 NOK/hour, even overnight. Room key. Need to re-new it every time I locked my door. 3,5 km from the city. Far enough for walking. No veiw. Of course no tea/coffee maker in the room.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Breakfast was very good and the restaurant is on the 21st floor, which has a very nice view. Most of the staff were very helpful.

        WiFi is not available in the room, only wired network.

      • Single
        5.8

        Comfortable bed. Extensive breakfast.

        The gym facilities were offsite, not part of the hotel itself, and were only open for limited hours, and not t all over the weekend I stayed. The hotel staff seemed to know little about the restricted opening hours of the gym and misadvised me on this point. Additionally, the shower in the room (a very nice powerful hot shower) flooded the bathroom floor whenever used for longer than a couple of minutes.

      • Family with children
        3.8

        The view from the restaurant was great.

        No TV for the children in the evening. Room was not clean enough. Service was not very good in the restaurant. Location was a bit remote.

        Small room and no WiFi on the rooms

        Rica Forum Hotel is a nice & modern hotel, with nice rooms (including a large bathroom) and nice view of surroundings

        Unfortunately and depsite the generous size of the bathroom, the rest of the room has barely the space to you move into it.

      • Single
        7.0

        I had a probleme with noisy customers, and the next morning the staff settle the issue by giving me another (and better) room. I apreciated the willingness to help. The sight from the dining room is terrific.

        The cheaper price during week-end drag people eager to have parties with alcohol, hence, the hotel is more noisy and less cosy.

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        Decent place to stay, friendly staff, excellent bar & restaurant on the 21st floor.

        The fact that there was no flexibility to print out the bill to the customers wishes. Although there is plenty of space around the hotel, there is no parking exclusively for the hotel. This is wrongly mentioned by Booked.net. However there is a (paid) garage nearby, which provides shelter in the winter.

        Breakfast was nice. especially because of the wonderful view.

        And then one of the waitresses decides to close the blinders on the windows: goodbye view....

      • Couple
        9.2

        Tallest building in Stavanger, nice view from 21.floor!

        The rooms where suppose to be soundproofe, that is not true

      • Couple
        8.8

        This hotel is very comfortable to live in. The room is clean and internet connection is fast, and the staffs are very warm and professional. Cruisin in the hotel is good as well. I love it!

        If I have to pick something a bit negative is probably the location, which needs 10 min bus route while the bus ticket is not cheap. But it's too minor to complain because it's quiet as well! So generally speaking I highly recommend this hotel!

      • Single
        8.2

        It's a comfortable high standard hotel. No real surprises.

      • Single
        7.4

        Clean professional hotel, ideal for business visits

        No gym facilities

      • Single
        7.0

        It is a convenient hotel with nice rooms.

        The rooms are nice, but there is ends, the nice and high building is a bit old inside. The breakfast is not up to Western standards and when there is a convention it is much too busy, also the elevators is a mess, sometimes waiting 5 minutes.... but hotels in Stanavger in general are not that great so we normally choose this one, please note this hotel is not close to the centre..
