I chose this hotel based on price (I was booking combined flight and hotel through an agency). The staff was very friendly and serviceminded. I felt welcome and got good directions on how to get around in the city. The only thing that was a negative was the cleaning of the room. It could have been better, but I have... More

I arrived late at night after traveling from the States and my superb arrival experience would be the standard throughout my five day stay! After checking in and answering my questions about where I could find food on a Sunday evening (no where) I was directed to a wonderful deluxe room that overlooked the he canal. However seeing I was... More

I stayed at Scandic in July 15 and I am very happy to see that I made a right choice! A trendy, business hotel in Trondheim. The location is brillant! Just facing the Niedelva river and offers you unlimited cosiness. Train station is within 12-15 mins of walking distance. I knew that some standard rooms have indoor windows (which I... More

First the annoying. The cold cut, sliced cheese had dry surface and edges from being out uncovered for many hours. The terrible bacon seemed cooked and not fried. As always with Scandic, you only get one slice of this bacon with the fried egg. The hotel itself is nice, both in location and interior.

Location is very good, only about 400-500 meters' walk to the city square ("Torget"). The hotel is right on the river, with a great view to the wharves on the other riverbank. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, hotel is modern and fresh, rooms are functional.

The Scandic brand took over the Rica hotels in Trondheim a while back, and those of us that were used to the almost over-the-top breakfast offerings at Rica Nidelven and Rica Bakklandet were - to put it mildly - rather sceptical. Unfortunately, the standard dropped as we feared for a while, but now I have to say that it is... More

It felt like a bad hospital. Location is good, it is in the center, on the water - however, our room view was at a wall of neighboring building and nothing else. Bathroom seemed like a bad hospital bathroom - built not with hotel guests in mind but with easy of cleaning in mind - no shower cabin or a... More

Scandic Bakklandet is a great all round hotel - friendly and helpful staff, great location, spacious modern rooms and bathrooms and a fantastic breakfast selection! It's in a lovely location right on the river, within walking distance to the harbour and city centre. The rooms were large and spotlessly clean - nice modern decor and stylish bathrooms. The bed was... More
