Stayed here for almost four weeks in January, and it's the perfect location to explore the city. Close to pretty much everything, as well as my favourite, Bakklandet. Great and healthy breakfast included, as well as a simple but decent supper four nights a week. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, with a "can do" attitude.... More

Half the hotel was under renovation which was a little confusing, but I found the breakfast room easily. It ranks as the one of the best meals I've ever had. In Norway, they offer lox and other fish and excellent scrambled eggs and fresh vegetables. It's an good reason to like Trondheim. Hotel near RR station.

Small room, was clean and everything worked. Hotel was centrally located. Dinner snack was nice, fish cakes, cheese and cold meats and waffles. Breakfast included hot and cold dishes which was better than we expected.Train station was less than 10 minutes walking, so was a shopping mall. Hotel reception staff were very helpful. There were restaurants close by.

Stayed there on a business trip. Nice hotel well situated in the middle of town and on line with the buss from the airport. Room was clean and neat. Breakfast was good with a standard variety och food. On the whole a very good hotel for the price.

Of course the hotel is clean and ok like any hotel in the Thon hotel group. But this was major drawbacks to me: * No over night parking nearby! If you are lucky enough to find parking in the side streets, you have to feed the meter every fifth hour. After driving around for 20 minutes I ended up having... More

Had 2 nights there after an 11day Hurtigruten cruise. Good Hotel but a few points. The room I had on 5 th floor was small but had everything you need including mini bar. The room was very hot with only one small window that you had to stand on table to open. The open window let a bit of air... More

It is a nice hotel, been there several times. Breakfast is average with good variety. Very nice room with large windows. Good bath room with shower. The bed was a bit narrow, and the mattress was too soft.

Meget godt fornøyd. Seriously good. Mat til frokost. Breakfast Good. Sentral in city. Walking to railway. Airportbus outsider. Ravnkloa like ved... not open on sundays down there is a pity, But has nothing with Gildevangen to do. We are very satisfied...

The rooms are Three star, no more no less. Staff when checking in: Nice, but not very informative - you have to ask for every little piece of information yourself, even when and where breakfast is served. Staff when checking out: Uninterested Luggage room is unlocked and staff does not seem to pay attention to who goes in there, so... More
