“Excellent with earplugs”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Very central, just a few minutes' walk from the Central Station.

There are pubs and stuff all around, so do be prepared for noise outside at night. Earplugs are recommended if that bothers you.

The hotel is old, and has been interestingly refurbished. They hadn't gotten around to placing shelving in our bathroom yet, but otherwise the room was great.

A typical Thon breakfast, with really good fresh bread, typical Norwegian "pålegg" - cheese and salami, cucumber, tomatoes and stuff - fresh fruit and some warm breakfast dishes. Lots of bacon.

Free coffee available in reception 24/7, friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: We had room nr. 200, which faced a back alley. No view, but relatively quiet

We arrived very late for our reservation: an airport security strike closed the airport we were traveling out of, so we drove instead, arriving at 5 in the morning. We would only have time for a nap and a needed shower before checkout. The desk staff who greeted us was quite helpful. He extended our checkout without us requesting. When he realized we'd likely be sleeping through breakfast, he offered to box something up for us. (Which they did. It was waiting for us when we did check out.) He helped us with the instructions on the parking meter. Later desk staff were extremely helpful in directing a phone call we received, and even chased us out the door when we received another phone call while we were loading up our car.

The room itself was large and nice, with a queen sized bed, modern shower, and bathrobes - quite different from the Thon we had visited earlier on the trip. I would have liked to stay here for more than just a nap.

My wife and I booked this because most of the other hotels in Trondheim were booked. After a very nice stay at the Thon Hotel Kristiansund, we were expecting another spacious room with amenities such as a bathrobe, slippers and bath items.

The room at this hotel is very small, there are no amenities in the room, and the customers at the bar in the corner of the building were making a lot of noise until close to midnight.

I would recommend NOT booking here.

I have stayed at this hotel several times, and it is always a pleasant experience. Friendly staff at the desk, and the rooms are clean although a bit on the smaller side, perhaps. Relatively quiet area of town, at least in midweek. Free wifi for hotel guests is definitely a good thing, and you can upgrade to better speed for a modest price. Breakfast was OK, not more nor less.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new wing as they are newly renovated, and choose one that faces north (away fr...

Very centrally located hotel, just a couple of minutes walk from Trondheim train station. The hotel seemed to be newly renovated, stylish decorated and fresh looking rooms. Not a huge sized room but it did the job and a very nice and soft bed ensured a comfortable night. The shower was also near to perfection (water pressure, amount of water etc). The buffet breakfast was "standard hotel", but I missed proper yogurt & muesli - therefore I won't give top marks this time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building :)

This hotel, altho poorly marked, was convenient to the train station and the center of town. The front desk was very friendly and helpful.

I stayed one night on a meeting trip and stayed on the 2nd building, which is connected by an overpass. Very clean and quiet. Only 5 minutes walk to the city centre.
The only thing I was disappointed with was the breakfast. They have the regular continental breakfast with cold and warm selection of food. Unfortunately, the warm food are not exactly warm. Cold scramble egg doesn't taste that good.
Other than that, it is a very nice hotel with reasonable price as well.
