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...

We've stayed in this hotel whilst it was part of the Rica group many times and considered it to be a cut above the rest. Things have changed there though....and not just the name. Scandic have trimmed back on many of the things which I mean are important in a hotel. Mini bars are empty and unplugged. This means no... More

Clean and centrally located, this Scandic hotel is an average hotel. Besides the location -- a quick walk from some of Trondheim's biggest tourist attractions -- its best feature is the breakfast, which is one of the better hotel breakfasts I have had and includes something for just abut anyone's food tastes. My room had a nice view of the... More

Dear Planetraincar Thanks for staying with us whilst in Trondheim and thanks for your review. All reviews are important to us so that we can find ways of improving ourselves. We are a Swan labelled hotel, which basically means that we are a very eco-friendly hotel, which is important for Scandic and many of our guests. This is why you... More

Firstly breakfast and wifi are very good. The room assigned was big as we had requested for family room. However it was a room for handicapped people which i did not request. There was no safe and coffee m/c in the room - the latter was provided after i asked which was odd. The air conditioning was not proper in... More

Hi Sarita Thanks for staying at Scandic Bakklandet. Some of our family rooms are also handicap rooms, and the only difference in these rooms are that we have adjusted them so that they are accessible for everyone. We do not have safes in the rooms, but it's possible to keep valuables in the safe at the front office. We do... More

I was staying here for a long weekend with family. The room is clean and fine, breakfast good and the hotel in good shape. But the value-price feels off, since most services has been moved from the staff over to the costumer.

This modern hotel is situated in the centre of Trondheim, just around the corner of Bakklandet, a picturesque are of Trondheim with small wooden houses. The rooms were very comfortable, the breakfast buffet superb, and a very hospitable staff. We would recommend this place without hesitation.

Very nice, clean rooms with fantastic front-desk service. Some notes: -Best hotel breakfast anywhere--orange juice is squeezed in front of you. Since you're paying about $30/meal out on the economy, it's nice to come down to a price-stress-free breakfast to kick-off the day. Standard breakfast stuff, plus some Norwegian bonuses. -Blankets/sheets are one unit, which I generally dislike--was hot every... More
