I decided that Trondheim would be as good a place as any to surprise my girlfriend by asking her to marry me. The Rica Bakklandet came very well reviewed so I was confident with my choice. The hotel did not let me down. It is located very conveniently for all the shops, the smart marina-side restaurants and other attractions. The hotel is smart, clean and the staff were very attentive. I booked a Deluxe room which was very well appointed with a dual aspect on the corner of the building overlooking the river. The room was quiet, there was a table and chairs, comfortable sofa and flat screen TV. The minibar was well stocked and reasonably priced. There was a good bathroom with a good shower. The bed was comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. Breakfast was served downstairs in atrium and there was plenty of choice from cooked to the more continental offerings. We enjoyed a few drinks in the bar and found the staff very good and very friendly. The Concierge was helpful in finding us a table across the river at Ai Suma, which was handy as it was where I proposed. I'll be certain to come back and will be happy to stay at the Rica Bakklandet again.
The only possible drawback was the lack of a Sauna which would have been great. Can you squeeze one in?
