I was a little disappointed with this hotel. I was there for 3 or 4 days so I, of course, wanted to unpack my suitcase. However, there is no drawer space at all in the room I was in. Plenty of closet space to hang shirts or pants, but no drawers to put socks, underwear, toiletries, toothbrush, etc. Very strange....

This is the worst hotel I ever have visited! We stayed for two nights and for the first time ever in my life I stayed at a hotel with no service at all, and the hotel also had what I would describe as a really bad breakfast. The room was not cleanad up during our visit, and when I contacted...

It's a modern fancy hotel with a bit too modern reseption/bar area. I ordered a non-alcoholic Cider, and they wanted 89 NOK pr 0,33 liters bottle. Very mutch more expensive then t.ex. a beer. Apart from that - the employees are nice and friendly, and the rooms with wiew of the fjord are very nice. Breaksest good.

The Scandic Rock City hotel is located right by the sea front. Nice view from my room. Compact but clean room and nice bed. Welcoming staff and nice breakfast is important to business travellers. Free parking.

When we booked a view room, we were hoping for a fjord view but got a view of a parking lot and a fairly busy roundabout instead. Some noise in the room from traffic going through the roundabout. Room was large and modern and very bright, but could use better curtains for non-scandanavian visitors who aren't used to almost 24...

Hotel: the rooms were very quiet (we were on the sixth floor facing the street, but all scandics tend to have very soundproof rooms). The beds and pillows were very comfortable (typical Norwegian hotel bedding). Wifi was free and of good quality. Breakfast: excellent ! Yogurt, eggs, breads, some pastries. Nothing to order. Beware: if you want to sneak out...

Fantastic service. Comfortable beds. Small, but very nice room. Good size bathroom. Our grandchildren were very happy to get their own room (secluded to ours) in stead of extra beds. Perfect! They loved the musical theme decorations. And the breakfast-buffet was a real hit. But the children's menu might have room for improvements. Burgers and sossages are not every child's...
