Scandic Rock City
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Namsos
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Celebrating a birthday, we brought 20 friends and family to dinner at the hotel restaurant. We did not sleep at the hotel.
Service was swift and friendly, food was good and prices were reasonable.
Beautiful view of the fjord from the restaurant, as the whole hotel is in the best possible location of town.
Interiors and design are completely and 100 per cent in line with the local rock theme.
I would come back, and next time, I'll spend the night.

Norwegians don't really market their travel services well and this Rica Hotel was the only spot I could find for my trip up the north coast. Turns out there are lots of Hytter campground cabins available on hwy 17 but I'm glad I spent the extra money and experienced the Rock City Hotel. The place is dedicated to Norwegian Rock music. It's plush and comfortable with a very slick style. Breakfast was the best I had in Norway as well. Loved our room's mural of a giant smoking rose. In a country that seems almost obsessed with being bland, the Rock City hotel was a nice change of pace.

Room Tip: Each room is a little different, you may have a specific band room you wish to book.

Don't be frightened by the locals' description of guitar shaped beds and extreme rock and roll decor. There really isn't much along those lines. Our room had a picture of a guitar imbedded in the desk top, nothing else. And it was a large room by Norway standards with a huge bathroom. It's a new hotel so everything works and is extremely clean. The staff is great and even found a place to store our bikes overnight. The breakfast buffet is better then average. And the location is good; on the waterfront, on a fairly quiet street, beside a very nice residential neighborhood and just a few minutes walk to the centre of town.

The room was very comfortable, with good beds and big toilet, and the breakfast was excellent, with the delicious fishes from Norway. The rock and roll theme was very cool, also. Great surprise for such a small city.

Already at the reception, the staff was perfectly helpful. The room on the eighth floor was great. Finally, the breakfast buffet was abundant, and also here the staff were highly service-minded.

Clean rooms, good beds, in a hotel with very good location. Restaurant a bit understaffed, but they were all very friendly and accommodating.
