We stayed at the Comfort Hotel for two nights as a respite between various budget backpacker hostels in Norway. We picked the Comfort Hotel as it was a nice looking budget hotel in our price range (just!).
Norway, and Scandinavia in general is a VERY expensive place to travel. Food, accommodation, attractions, transport, everything will cost one and half to twice what you may be used to paying in Australia, the States and Europe.
Glad to say we got our moneys worth here. The hotel is well situated and easy to locate, about a 10 minute walk from the Hurtigruten Coaster Steamer terminal, on a small back street just off a main road. Opposite it is the Trondheim Cinema (Kino).
Lots of restaurants in the vicinity but all are expensive, your best bet is probably the Rema 1000 supermarket about 15 meters down on the main road, where you can also buy beer before the 6pm cutoff. Egon restaurant (part of a Norwegian restaurant chain) had an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet all day on Sunday and Monday for 99 kroner, great value as the pizza is crisp and has lots of toppings.
Check in was effortless (we arrived around 10pm), we showed a print out of our booking and were handed a key. Self service checkin was also available but we did not use it , looked pretty straight forward. Free wifi access is available, and there is a row of computer terminals for guest use, also free but REALLY slow. Use a smart phone instead if you have one.
Room was a little on the small size but very clean and modern. Nice carpet, large flatscreen tv (with usb etc connections so you can see the photos off your camera!). No minibar or safe, but unlimited free coffee and hot chocolate is available at reception 24 hours. Bed was too soft, pillows were pretty flat down feather pillows, but I have yet to find a nice, supportive pillow in the whole of Norway!
Bathroom was again small, spotless and modern. They really need a shower screen in there though, whenever we had a shower half the bathroom floor would get soaked.
Buffet breakfast was varied and delicious, very filling.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Trondheim, and would stay here again without hesitation.
