“Very nice!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Super hotel, EXCELLENT breakfast! it deserves to be the "best breakfast" in Norway, very nice decoration, super nice big room with a beautiful view on the water, with large windows.
Very good bed, very confortable.
But: the bathroom was not really really nice, the housekeeping wasnt too (even if it was clean, they didnt take care of the little details. Like they let all the clothes on the floor or on the furniture, and didnt threw away the diaper of our baby, so not so nice smell in the room).
Plus, the people from the reception were not kinf at all, and the service of the restaurant for dinner either....
But otherwise, very very nice hotel!

Had a very pleasant experience and one of the best breakfasts i have ever had. The hotel is located downtown Trondheim, close to several shopping malls (walking distance to Solsiden, Mercur, Trondheim Torg and Byhaven) and restaurants. Possibility of booking a room with a river view.

This place is the best hotel I've stayed at around the world. The rooms are simple but nicely done, the location is good and walkable distance to most of the town, the water views are superb, the decor in the common areas was interesting, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was a little skeptical reading all the rave reviews about the breakfast buffet, but they're all true. Breakfast is enough reason to stay here all by itself, worth every kroner. (But be forewarned that the overeager bus staff will snatch up even a half-full plate if you get up to get something else, which means you'll probably lose your hard-won seat in the process as well.)

I just have two quibbles. The hotel has no parking, so you're either on the street or in a nearby municipal garage, both of which cost money. I didn't have any problems finding parking on the street right across from the hotel, and was fortunate to be there on the weekend when street parking is free. The other problem was the curtains in the room. I was there during the summer solstice, and it never got dark at night. The curtains were far from being blackout curtains, and let in a fair amount of light. I had a sleep mask and am a pretty heavy sleeper so it didn't unduly bother me, but I'm shocked that a hotel like this that has gone to extremes in every other area of service wouldn't have attended to this detail.

Still, a first class hotel. I'm sad that I'm unlikely to visit Trondheim again, and therefore won't be able to stay (and eat) at the Rica Nidelven again.

I will absolutely recommend this hotel. The food is fantastic, the location is very good, close to shops and restaurants. A short walk to the old part of the town. And I love the art inside the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the quiet side of the hotel. There is a noisy street on one side of the hotel.

This hotel is known for having the best breakfast in Norway, and rightly so. I am not usually impressed with the food and value in Norway but this was very good. Definitely the best of the hotels I have stayed in while over there!

Great service, when I arrived on the late flight, the hotel staff actually made me an out of hours meal as I was hungry and the restaurant was closed.

I was here for two days during a conference. I was lucky and got a rom with the river view. The hotel seemed to be quite new. The room was spacious to be a single room, well equiped (no iron).
What strucked me most of all was the breakfast and lunch buffet. So mane choices, so many type, so many staff to serve you! I barely managed to have some coffe, before the staff was on my cup wanna to fill it up again :) Some said this hotel had the best buffet in all Norway. I am not surprised. Clean rooms, clean place, Friendly staff. I will come back to this hotell if visiting Trondheim (but I need a room with a view :))

Recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms towards the river are best
