The Thon Hotel chain in Norway is pretty straightforward - clean (smallish) rooms, central locations, friendly staff, decent breakfasts (they even provide umbrellas for guests). But this hotel's main attraction was that it was only 300m from the train station, so it was an easy walk even with a good bit of luggage, and then, wonder of wonders, there was a Scottish pub attached to it. Both the hotel and pub are housed in a turn of the 20th-century building, so it was even aesthetically pleasing (Thon Hotel architecture usually tends to be a bit bland) but the pub really made our stay - my husband and I spent both evenings we were in Trondheim sitting in a friendly corner, playing pub games (we brought our own), drinking expensive beer and whisky (but not any more so than any alcohol is in Norway), and just thoroughly enjoying the atmosphere. The hotel is within easy walking distance of all the major sites in Trondheim too (Nidaros Cathedral, the Stiftsgarden Palace etc.).
