Trondheim, Norway
Reviewed yesterday NEW

The rooms are clean but quite simple. The aircon was not working in our room, so quite a warm night. Service ok and the hotel is partly on the river, close to the city center with all the shops and restaurants. The breakfast buffet is amazing, with everything you can wish for this time of the day.

This was my first hotel on a series of 5 on a 2 week trip and it was a great starting point, reception was efficient, although the room was a bit of a walk from the lift lobby it did mean it was quiet, the room was functional with a nice view over the inlet to the Fjord, the bar...

This hotel is frendly and offers the best breakfast in Norway, a very lagre buffet with everything you could wish for. Ask for a room facing the river, the rooms facing the other way is a bit noisy. About 10 min walk to Nidarosdomen.

Only let down in this hotel is that the room i had was so small that i was convinced that it was for one person. Did get another room and it was ok. Airquality and temperature was not good. But i...

I had a really nice room with a great view of bridge over canal and downtown. The breakfast was great but it was cold so I had dinner in and it was AWFUL. Worse hamburger ever and not cheap. How can they make great breakfast and terrible dinners

Stayed here for four nights in February for a conference. The breakfast was excellent, as many have pointed out - the widest variety of foods that I have ever seen at a Norwegian hotel. I also want to commend the servers in the breakfast section who were very proactive in refilling our tea/coffee and serving us delightful chocolate pieces when...

We invited a friend to this breakfast as a part of the gift for her 30th birthday. She was thrilled! We had two fabulous hours of eating, drinking good juices and coffees and talking on a Saturday morning. The location of this hotel is also great, as we had a view of the river while eating.

Generally perfectly OK, but a bit expensive compared to standard; no air conditioning, no room safe, limited set of TV channels and no toiletries apart from shampoo/soap dispensers on the wall. Plus for coffee/the maker in the room. Very friendly staff and a wonderful collection of paintings in the reception area of the established Norwegian painter Gullvåg. The hotel is...
