Scandic Bakklandet is a wonderful hotel that offered great food, service and all within easy walking distance to most tourist attractions. I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had an unexpected stay here when our Hurtigruten ferry broke down and we had to decamp before boarding a replacement ship. The hotel feels huge but the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and well appointed with a nice bathroom with shower. Unfortunately it was almost opposite the gym. I can only assume the flooring... More

Located very close to town center. Clean, comfortable, modern, nice and helpful staff. really good breakfast. But : very chaotic when all guests tried to have their 'late' Sunday breakfast obviously at the same time. We had to wait at least 20 min to find a vacant table . Eat breakfast a bit early and avoid this.

I stayed for one night. Room temperature was set at a comfortable level. Good view from window. Very good breakfast with a lot of variety. Coffee that is served around is much better than the one from the machine. Have a fresh orange juice squeezer. Helpful and friendly staff. There is no bath tab, but the shower temperature is just...

Scandic Bakklandet is a new hotel centrally located in Trondheim by Nidelva. The staff is very friendly and service minded with a high capacity. They serve an excellent breakfast with a variety of cold and hot dishes.

I've stayed there for work a few times now, rooms are decent sized. My room's never had anything stocked in the mini-bar, but has coffee/tea and a kettle. I really enjoy their breakfast, huge selection of all types of breakfast food and a breakfast chef.

I spent two nights here and had a great stay. The Norwegian style breakfast which is included in the room price is very good with a wide variety of fresh ingredients. Sorry, I didn't try the fish for breakfast. The rooms are small but clean and modern. I have found most hotels in Norway to have small rooms and two... More

Good value for money, Would be happy to stay again. The Vaernes Ekspressen bus (which accepts credit cards) provides rapid transport from the airport and stops directly across the street from...

Placed very central and a new hotel, but with very poor service. I booked a room for one week and asked before arrival about a quiet superior room. The room I got must have been one of the most noisiest rooms- to the main road. I asked for another room, and I got a new room but the receptionists were... More
