I love this hotel, I've been there twice. Of course the fantastic breakfast is the main reason why I want to go back. I get up early just so I can eat, and then eat again, and again if I can manage..

It's a short walk to the town, and the hotel is beautifully situated by the water.

Modern hotel with interesting paintings by the Norwegian painter Håkon Gullvåg in the reception area. Good rooms, good reception service. Very nice bar food and beer from microbreweries. Breakfast is excellent, but for business travelers it starts too late (07.00)

The personnel is very professional and kind. Wifi is included in the price and of good quality. The hotel ambience of common places is very interesting.
My room was average/good, with some very good furniture (large TV screen) and some average (side view, small, window; small bathroom). Coffee maker is present in the room.
The position is optimal, just close to the railway station, downtown.
The breakfast is simply outstanding, congratulations.

I stayed here for 2 nights on business and can say with certainty, one of the better in the chains portfolio.

Situated smack, bang in the middle of town, this hotel is perfect for both holiday makers and business travellers. Close to all aminities and public transport. However, they have no parking.

The rooms are spacious, clean, quiet and well kept. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel has won the prize for "Norway's best breakfast" for the past 5+ years. And this is very much the case. All your heart desires can be found here. Healthy or not.

The hotel facilities a boast a large conference centre, a gym (although this is the very disappointing part of the hotel. Small and very limited) and a sea side location.

I would reccomend this hotel to everyone with both standards and who like staying at a good hotel without breaking the bank.

I recently enjoyed two days/nights stay at this hotel, and was first of all impressed by the attentiveness and genuine service attitude of the staff everywhere.
But the most outstanding single attraction at this hotel is the breakfast service (reputation, "Best in Norway"). I wish I had time to spend at least 1-2 hours to enjoy the wide selections of top quality food items, deliciously served either on buffet spreads or by professional staff members tempting you at the table! You have to experience it yourself!
After this, maybe unnecessary to add, everything satisfied my needs for efficiency and comfort.
Comfortable rooms and amenities, clean and tidy, centrally located in Trondheim and to nearby restaurants/bars and cultural attractions, and the Airport Bus halts just across the street.
Experience it!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the river!

So this is my second time in Norway. I took the train from the airport and literally crossed the road and there was the hotel. The atrium reception is stunning with some fantastic pieces of art. The bar is well stocked with good whisky. The hotel is in the more modern part of town and the trendy restaurants are just across a footbridge.
My room was very spacious and clean. BUT the biggest think was the breakfast. I've never seen anything like it and it was included in the price. Huge amounts of fish, meats, cheeses, a coffee and tea bar, pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruit smoothies, fruit juices etc. etc. Simply delicious

Room Tip: Get a corner room in the conference section facing the marina

Nice hotel With superb loaction Close to the Railway station, the restaurants along the harbour and only five minutes walk to the city center. The hotel is fresh with clean rooms in modern style. More business- than cozy style. The bar is OK but I recomend to spend two minutes walk to "Solsiden" where you have bars and restaurants in all categories. The breakfast is one reason alone to book a night at this hotel. Fresh tastes and enormous variation. They have own chefs at omelet- and cheesestations, and you can ordre coffee from a barista. The breakfast is named "Best hotel breakfast i Norway" everey year for the last eight years...

Room Tip: The hotel has two sections. Specify a room in the section closest to the reception if possible. This...
