I have been staying at this hotel at several occasions . I was a little concerned about what would happen to this hotel after it changed owners from Rica to Scandic, because my experiences with Scandic hotels are not the best. I am so happy to say that The Scandic Rock City Hotel still has the same qualities as Rica... More

Do not pay extra to "upgrade" your rom! You might get an armchaire, and you might..get a view...but on the other hand you might not. Apparently pages like Booking.com or hotels.com doesn't necessery have the right details regarding the rooms, and well...the receptionist didn't seem too sorry about it. I've stayed there two nights on different occations now, and as... More

First I would like to say that this hotel is really not a bad hotel, the reason I give it only two stars is because the room price is like a price for a luxury hotel - which this hotel is not. I came into the reception and asked for a room. They said that a single room cost 1... More

Cool consept. Lived in the Terje Tysland room. A bit freaky him staring at me the whole night 😆 I arrived Sunday at 1900 and to my big disappointment there was nobody in the restaurant.... Nice rooms. New, good standard. Not the biggest rooms but farly good.

Thank you for your replay regarding your visit in Namsos. Our restaurant is unfortunatly closed on Sunday, but after the rebranding to Scandic we can now offer some salads, baguets or wrap for a light meal. Otherwise you will find diningplaces near by the hotel. As you might know Terje Tysland is one of 6 artists we have in our... More

Nice and clean room. I was lucky, I had sea view and could overlook Namsenfjord. During my stay the weather was beautiful so everything was optimal. Very good breakfast and a restaurant that also offered small meals at night. The welcome reseption was cosy with frendly atmosphere and deskoperaters. Standard sized room with minibar, but no contents. No coffeepot or... 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.
