Great hotel with good location and excellent service. Fun with the rock theme. The restaurant though, was expensive and not at all good enough. Very wannabe, but not being... When the menu consist of three single courses only, and the pricing is in upper level, the atmosphere and the waiter is high class, and the food is served on fancy... More

Nice, new and modern hotel with great location. Nice view to the ocean from the restaurant where the breakfast was great. Friendly staff, good service and easy parking with modern rooms. Really nothing to complain about, and a very good experience.

Stayed for 2 nights here and spent them in 2 separate deluxe rooms. First room was the best seeing it was facing the sea and gave a lovely view with ceiling Hugh windows. The second room we had was with a guitar bed which was lovely too but more a novelty then a practical thing. The bed felt smaller and... More

I checked in to Rica Rock City Hotel for around 10 days stay on a business trip. The service was great (they helped me with sewing kits and cleaning my clothes at one point). Parking is easily accessible. I think the "rock'n'roll" image could be much more prominent, however I guess it's kept low to make the "old people with... More

We arrived to a rock band playing at the reception door and then continued to be delighted by the rock themed rooms including memorabilia and lyrics woven into the carpets. This all created a memorable and enjoyable experinece for us on what was a one night stay whilst driving up the coast. The room, food and position of this hotel... More

Looking out across the sea, I woke after a great night's sleep at Rock City Hotel. The breakfast is both tasty and healthy, a real treat. Spacious rooms with comfy chairs, clean and efficient bathroom. Nicely decorated with both sea front themes and Norwegian rock stars. Absolutely recommended!

Difficult to understand, but this hotel is new and looks nice and modern. They have done a lot of efforts to make it moderne and our first impression was positiv.Unfortunenately are all the rooms terrible hot during summertime. Also impossible to regulate. Very difficult to sleep

I stayed at the hotel for one night, (6th july 2013) The room was very spacious and very clean. The food, (breakfast) was outstanding, with several choices ranging from fruit and pastries and a bit of a fry up. There were numerous beverages on offer, and the staff were not only friendly and helpful, but nothing seemed too much trouble... More

My first impressions driving up to the hotel was not very exiting. But the building grew on me the closer i got. Parking is free and on the left back left side of the entrance of the hotel. I must say the lobby, restaurant and room was really nice! When the elevator door opened on the 5th floor there was... More
