My wife, 11 months old son and I spent a weekend in Trondheim. We both studied in Trondheim some years ago, so we knew that the location would be great, just next to the cathedral and the nice Bakklandet area. The hotel had a very friendly staff, clean rooms and beds and delicious breakfast. Our son got a baby bed,... More

We were a group of friends on a first stop to catch the Hurtigruten for the Northern Lights (great trip). Friendly efficient desk staff, spic&span modern rooms, with good amenities, quiet, great breakfast spread & walkable to everything in a fairly small town. Good for all purposes. All good! Well done!

Beautiful design hotel and great staff. Great breakfast and food as well. The staff is kind and friendly and rooms are comfortable, but... Not all guests are Scandinavians! It was freezing cold in my room and this automatic ventilation could not be stopped! Day and night and in the end I have a terrible headache and I'm not at all... More

Location is excellent, rooms are small but well appointed, we had a fantastic view to the North. Some rooms look at a wall, very few look out on the historic area and water. Buses, including an express to the airport, leave right out front. Breakfast is excellent, combining the many varieties of fish, with eggs, cold cuts, cheese, fruit, yoghurt,... More

The overall service was great, the breakfast outstanding! Staff made dinner reservations for us when we couldn't . Location wonderful, we walked everywhere, waterfront, cathedral, small shops in old town, grocery store. Our only complaint was the lack of practical priced parking, but understand this is a problem for all of Trondheim. The free bike rental was also a big... More

We stayed in early July 2014 and found the hotel to be of a very good standard. You can park in the car park underneath the hotel but it isn't cheap 350NK for two days. Rooms are modern with no views whatsoever in our case or the hotel might have got an excellent rating. Breakfast was of a high standard.... More

We found it worth the few extra hundreds kronors for superior room with view and French balcony overlooking the river. Especially nice on a sunny +25C evening. Good location close to city centre, historic sights as well as Solsidan restaurant mall. Great breakfast too and kept both buffet refilled and tables fresh and clean. Friendly and service minded staff, helpful... More

We arrived very early in morning and they helpfully found a room for us by 11am.On the other hand we wouldn't have been happy with the room in normal circumstances.Very small and only a skylight for natural light.Good bathroom.Excellently situated for the city centre and very good breakfast.Free bike available for guests.

This is the 6th place we have stayed at during our trip to Norway -- including a youth hostel, camping cabins, and nice hotels (including another Rica, the Holmenkollen Park hotel in Oslo), and, despite being one of the most expensive (especially with 175 NOK parking), so far the Rica Bakklandet has been the worst. We just arrived only about... More

Trondheim was our first stay in Norway last February. The Rica Bakklandet was a great place to start out. The hotel was comfortable, and the views from our room were gorgeous. The location was excellent, allowing us to walk everywhere, and the staff helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was absolutely amazing, and we couldn't help trying everything, resulting in...
