Situated right Next to Trondheim's bustling airport, Scandic Hell is a popular business and traveler hotel for conferences and travelers. In general, this is a rather typical business-style hotel, With high-standard but rather dull rooms and interior. A few Things, though, makes this hotel a bit above regular standards; breakfast is amongst Norway's best and most well-assorted, and the hotel... More

Stayed in the hotel for four nights for a sports event. Got a room in the old part of the hotel. Clean and simple. For two people for four days, the space to put clothes were rather limited, so had to keep them in my bag. Only one chair also limited the usage of the room.

Spent a night at this hotel for conference meetings. Hotel is located ca 500 mtrs from the airport, walking distance. Lobby and receptionists were nice and effective. The room was a bit disappointing compared to the impression entering the lobby. A bit of dust in the air in the room and long black hairs on the wall in the shower...... More

Great hotel for conference, EXCELLENT food, great service! One of the best hotel breakfast ever! The buffet offers a wide variety of juice, smoothies, fruit, eggs, bread, waffles, cereals.! The mattress was too soft, and the ventilation was a bit noisy.

We stay here for 1night. It's close to the airport, but not right next door. Clean and comfortable rooms. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Free Wi-Fi. Very delicious breakfast. But we think that prices in the restaurant too high.

The hotel has a nice location with its proximity to the airport. The room are ok, and the wifi works flawless. But the Amelia restaurant in this hotel makes the stay a rally. Its well presented in the buffet, and its good food. really good. Local produced food as well, and a lot of healthy alternatives. Highly recommended.
