We had a huge room, nice comfy bed, all new. Lovely view of the river & the wharves. Very close to everything, within walking distance of everything you want to see & easy access to a lot of restaurants etc

In a very nice part of town, bordering the old town, with nice restaurants. We got a nice room with o.k. bathroom, without a view, but for 1 night it was fine. We also had an issue with the parking. It is absolutely awful to try and park, and the cost, like any where else in Norway is a complete... More

Great location in walking distance of most things in Trondheim. The rooms are clean with very good beds. Bathroom is nice and clean with a large shower, not tub! Great! Breakfast is chaotic to say the least on weekends. Not nearly enough tables so they use the bar area, which is not a good place to eat. Much better on... More

Nice and clean hotel close to the centrum of trondheim. Not too big room, but big enough for me. The breakfast was very good with a nice view of the nidelven (the river). The staff was friendly. Free wifi in the room. I would stay at this hotel again.

The standard room on the top floor was excellent. Beds are very comfortable. Good bathroom. Breakfast was really great with tons of options and good quality food. We also had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good.

We stayed for three nights recently. The second night we had road works under our window until midnight. View from the room was of a neighbouring wall. All this for a very expensive room - in my opinion. The room was stripped down to basic with no coffee making facilities. Parking in the basement was very costly and our larger... More

I stayed at Scandic Bakklandet during the celebration of St. Olav, which is a major event in the end of July every year. The whole town is packed with events. Scandic Bakklandet is located on the other side of the river NIdelva, but it's in walking distanse for everything you want to see or experience. Bakklandet is a charming part... More

Very nice hotel. Modern look and feel. We had diner in the hotel which was very good. The location of the hotel is good and within walking distance of the city center. Rooms are spacious and contain all necessary facilities. We enjoyed our stay in Trondheim and would certainly recommend this hotel to others.
