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.

Nice room with a bit limited view. Good size both on the bedroom and the bathroom! The bathroom was clean and stocked with the necessary toiletries. Good sized shower. The bar and breakfast/dining area was clean. The staff was service minded and friendly. Good service through my whole stay.

The highlight of my stay at the Scandic Bakklandet was not the easy access of complementary bicycles, nor the delicious buffet with an abundance of local salmon, but the truly insightful historical knowledge and cultural analysis of Erik Knut. Eric works behind the reception desk at the hotel, but my inquiries about what he recommends opened Erik's wealth of knowledge.... More

We had a spacious and very well appointed room @ the Bakklandet. This is a Norwegian change and has high quality standards. The buffet breakfast was excellent with lots of choices and the food was wonderful. Good location too.

The room is actually pretty nice, it's quite big, the bed is nice, the bathroom is big, things look relatively new and I love the nice weird picture in here.

Hi Dorthe S I'm sorry the view from your room did not live up to your expectations. We are a city hotel with a great location, but as most buildings in a city center, there are rooms that face opposit buildings etc. As for the missing power outlets by the bed, I understand that this can be a challenge if...
