“Perfect location”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Had the pleasure of staying one night in Sept, 2012. So easy to find from the train station. The hotel staff was great. Our check in was smooth. Prior to arrival I received a couple of emails informing me to call if I would not arrive by 4pm. The ability to reserve and/or pre-pay on Thon's website would have been helpful. Arrival by 4 was not a problem. Room was spacious, breakfast was delightful and many shops and restaurants close by. Check out was also a breeze. Would stay here again and recommend it to ant travelers to Trondheim. One huge plus - the windows opened so you could get fresh air.

Room Tip: We stayed in th he building which was very nice although a bit convoluted to get there-up one elevat...

This quote "Budget" hotel was far above most 2 and some 3* hotels. Everything looked new, clean and not worn. The towels were fluffily and very white. The bathrooms although small were modern and well lit with great mirrors, and a hair dryer. The room even had an iron. The breakfast was like a brunch with many more things than you could eat at one sitting. There was a breakfast area especially designed for a 5 year old with all the kid friendly foods that age likes. They had a great children's play area and displayed the art work on the wall of the young guests. The young guests also had their own sign in at the hotel. The hotel is on a quite street one block from the main street. Although sign in for guests starts at 3 pm, we were allowed to sign in at 11am. really great since we had been traveling for 23 hours with no sleep. Also they had Alla great fitness center and this is a budget hotel?

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be the same. A standard room is a little smaller than the next class up.

We were four people staying in the hotel. I got the biggest room that was bigger than a family double room my friends got, which is wierd.

The staff was helpful, the breakfast delicious. WiFi worked flawlessly. The location is great and the price was reasonable as for Norway (although we arrived 2 weeks before the season)

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.
