We stayed here in June 2012. We had no booking but were able to turn up (on a Friday night) and we got a room for about £120. As we had been camping in the rain for the previous week it seemed a good deal.
The courtyard car park was full so we were asked to park in the underground spaces which required a code - and was a little difficult to find and navigate to the correct space numbers. Also if you're carrying luggage leave this at the hotel first as the pedestrian exit requires a lot of struggling through narrow, heavy doors!
Other than that slight irritation the hotel was good. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Be aware there is no lift from the ground floor - you need to go up a few steps to get to the very small lift. We couldn't quite work out how to get the external glass lift to work either.
The room was very, very comfortable and well appointed with an extremly comfortable bed and the scandinavian style 2 duvets. It was spacious with a nice view south, away from the water unfortunatly, but still pleasant. Surrounding streets are quiet at night so you'll not be disturbed.
The bathroom was lovely and bright - though the shower door didn't stop water soaking under it and making the floor wet - but a carefully placed towel stopped that.
The included breakfast in the Egon Restaurant was probably one of the best hotel breakfasts I've eaten - good fresh food, plenty of it, and nice varieties of fruit etc. Coffee kept on coming which was important the morning after the trip to the microbrewery...!
The hotel only lacks leisure facilities/ sauna etc which would have been welcome.
All in all a good place to stay in Trondheim.
