ROOM AND RECEPTION First of all, this is a new hotel and the rooms are comfortable. I had a rather small room, but I was comfortable. The girls in the reception were very polite and nice. RESTAURANT I decided to try the restaurant at the hotel since there really aren't many good options in Namsos. I decided to try the... More

This hotel is centrally located in the small town of Namsos, where there aren't many hotel alternatives to my knowledge. It is founded on the concept of "Trønderrock", which has become an identifying feature of the area, as several artists who mixes rock with local culture have their roots in Namsos. The hotel is located together with a permanent rock... More

Location right on the water front with huge panoramic windows very friendly and warm welcome. The Rock theme was quite amusing but did not detract from the quality of the hotel. We had booked evening meal and breakfast but on arrival told the restaurant was not open so given a voucher to visit Tinos across the road which was excellent

Scandic Rock City is a former Rica hotel, located in connection to the national resource center for pop and rock. The hotel is inspired by pop and rock, especially from this part of Norway. I think it functions very well as a theme hotel. We got a standard room on the top floor, and had great views of Namsos. The... More

Everything is good with this hotel. Easy to recommend. The hotel is situated close to the see and marina what also make a good atmosphere. The staff at the hotel is very helpful. Rooms are up to date and the beds are very good. Breakfast is also top.

Only hotel in town. Stayed at Rock City several times on business trips. Ok restaurant with polite and friendly staff. Unfortunately no gym. Small rooms with great standard and good beds. Every room have a topic from the Rock history of Namsos. Namsos is famous for producing a lot of Norwegian Rock Stars representing the Trønder Rock.

A relatively new hotel in the small town of Namsos. I had a good one night stay here, my room was very good and had a "new" feel to it. I liked it. I tried the burger at the hotel restaurant and was not impressed, average accessories and a compact burger. Unfortunately Namsos offers very few alternative restaurants. The breakfast... More
