This is a vast hotel centrally located, but in urgent need of a nip and tuck. Nothing has change here in some time. The rooms are large with little decoration or furnishing. In other words rooms look virtually empty. For that matter, so does the dining room and other central parts of this large hotel. The reason to stay here... More

The single room I got was so small that I could not open my suitcase without putting it on the desk. In that narrow space my room had a minibar, a writing desk a couple of chairs and the bed. The bathroom was almost the same size as the room and had a bathtub. Overall it was mostly clean, but... More

Nice boutique hotel with vintage style in the lobby and restaurant/bar area. The rooms are modern style. The hotel is huge so don't get lost. The spa is very nice but not included in the room rate. The fitness room is free of charge however. The breakfast is incredible good. 1000 things to choose from in a nice 1920ies style.

We enjoyed Britannia for two nights. Good service and a wonderful breakfast. As for most of Mr. Thon's hotels maintenance is needed here and there, but this is not a big deal. Next time we will try the spa!

We had a meeting here including lunch and a spa/welness visit. The lunch was a buffet with a lot of good food to choose from. The visit to the spa was a nice relaxing experience with many flavours of sauna, thermal, steam and herbal baths. Very friendly and helpful personell.

Central location. Friendly service. Beautiful, peaceful, elegant and clean hotel. The breakfast buffet was the best I have ever experienced. I specially enjoyed the big umbrellas the hotel has for visitors. Room was quite small and bed quite narrow, though.

Striving to be a mondene international city, Trondheims historic hotel was built in the late 19. Century. Britannia is set as a scene for novels, films and farces through its more than 100 years of existence, It has been representing, more than any other hotel in Norway, the upcoming bourgeois classes wish to be part of European modernity, and it...

Stayed two nights at this charming hotel for an International conference. My room was old fashioned, but the bath room was modern. Could have been more modern old. The best part of the hotel is the breakfast and dining room. Plenty of traditional food from Norway. The Palm Garden takes you centuries back...stay here if you like tradition and history!

The location is excellent. The old building is beautiful, but it lacks proper maintenance. Our room was ok, faced the back yard and was quiet. But we don`t fancy old carpet floors and the bath room wich was large, was a little shabby. The bed was new and comfortable. As we were unpacking, we discovered a lot of empty bottles... More
