Clarion Collection Grand Olav

Reviewed 16 September 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Clarion Grand Olav. The location is excellent - right in the city centre. Our room was very comfortable and it was the only place we stayed on our trip to Norway where we got a proper cot for our daughter and not just a travel cot - so big thumbs up for that! The added extras of the free DVD library and the evening meal were brilliant too.

We stayed at this hotel in connection with a bike race. Several extra touches, which don't usually happen at hotels, made the stay stress-free and enjoyable: free DIY waffles and coffee in the afternoon, DVD in room with DVD library in foyer, a selection of bedside books, and the staff didn't bat an eyelid when we wheeled our bikes into the hotel rooms.

We were given a room facing the shopping center but did not feel depressed as the mall is made of glass walls so we could see on the outside and also the cold wind couldn.t get in the room- we were sleeping with open window. The room was large and clean, with modern but elegant classy furniture, had a luxurious feeling.
In our 5 days stay room service seemed that did not change linen, did not wash the bathroom, only changed toilet paper and towels that were dissappointly old, worn and of poor quality contrary to the high standards of everything else in this hotel.
Breakfast was large and of organic ingredients, but with a smaller variety in the weekend. There was free coffe, tea, juice and waffles available in the afternoom, and free light meal - soup, salads, ham and cheese - in the evenings, so we ended up eating for free all day long. There is also a collection of 150 DVD movies you can watch in your room - although a bit dated.
We also liked that the stuff in the lobby were very discrete.
Parking is payed in the streets from 8.00 to 20.00 and 24h/24h under the hotel, so one may have to park away from the hotel to find a cheaper place.
Trondheim is a small city and this hotel is close to everything.
We loved our stay in the Grand Olav.

This hotel is one of the few design hotels that you find in Norway. Rooms are very cool and fresh, the same is the hotel lobby.
However service is not existant, no room service and people working in front desk who just seems bored.
Location is good, though strange to be in the middle of a shopping mall.
No restaurant service after a certain time but free toast was a bonus I did not except from this hotel.

I stayed at the Clarion Collection Grand Olav during a seminar for 3 nights. The hotel is located inside a shopping mall and you can find most of the things you need when travelling just on the ground floor. Despite the refurbishing of the reception/restaurant area, there was no inconvenience and/or noise.
The neighborhood is quiet and the hotel is minutes from the shopping area/town centre.
The rooms are spacious, with a kingsize bed, couch, working desk, and marble bathroom (some with bath tub, some with shower).
The ideal if you're travelling for business, with complimentary wireless connection (which is a great value, as some hotels charge huge amounts for that).
Good breakfast, and complimentary dinner every night, with fresh salmon, hot soup of the day, and a selection of cold food. Also, complimentary tea/coffee, juices 24/7.
The staff was always helpful and kind.
Great stay!

The hotel is located inside a shopping mall. International standard room with couch, marble washroom and kingsize bed. Rather for business as the decoration is somehow neutral. Calm neighbourhood.

Cordial staff and decent breakfast.

Have checked out the newly opened Rica hotel a few blocks away, more trendy and design. The Radisson across the street seems to be not bad either.

Trondheim is a nice and dynamic city that worths staying overnight.

Frommer's calls this the "most stylish" hotel in Trondheim. Maybe I missed something in a one-night stop with a late-Sunday-evening arrival, but it struck me as a charmless glass-box business hotel, embedded in the backside of a small shopping complex, and the room pleasant but nondescript, a disappointment given the gushing guidebook writeup. Good breakfast, staff cordial but not warm. The Comfort Hotel Bakeriet (same chain, lower-priced) half a block away seemed to have much more charm, although I didn't see the Bakeriet's guest rooms.
