I guess this is my favourite hotel in Trondheim. The hotel is quite new/modern, they've got a bar, it's located in the middle of the City, they've got a VERY nice breakfast - if you're lucky you get a "river view" - and the service is good too... The ONLY thing I miss is the iron/ironing board - and of...

Went there for a weekend. First night we got a room on the inside of the hotel, with windows to the busy breakfast and reception area. There was NO air in the room. We could not open the window because of all the noise. In the middle of the night we tried to switch rooms, but the night staff said...

This is a pretty hotel, in an excellent location, with a lovely staff and superior breakfast. There are (at least) 3 Scandics in close proximity. This one has a very pretty dining room/bar/lobby and absolutely the nicest most helpful staff. Our room was small, but immaculate. Truthfully, I didn't like several things about our room - it looked over the...

I stayed for two nights at the end of October to attend a concert at the town's famous Cathedral. From my arrival the staff were extremely helpful with regards restaurant recommendations and things to do. On the final day they allowed me a late check out which was much appreciated. The location of the hotel is absolutely ideal and the...

Lovely hotel. Blended in with surroundings thoughtfully. Situated close to centre. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent and well presented. Enough choice for fussy eaters. Rooms very clean and bed very comfy!! Would maybe return in the summer as only ever been in the winter to Norway 🇳🇴

We stopped in Trondheim to visit my daughter who studied and is now working there. The hotel is ideally situated . The Vaernes Expressen bus from the airport stops right across the road (the second stop from the airport). The buses around the city run every 5-10mins . It's a beautiful and easy walk to most places from the hotel...

I was fully prepared not to be happy with my room. Superior queen, I thought, humph. And what's with the weird blanket set up? I have never slept in a better bed, or more comfortably. The bathroom which seems sort of blah at first glance has a truly awesome shower. (Might seem strange but to me good water pressure is...
