Good hotel in the middle of the center just walking distance from everything. The hotel itself is designed so it can be a good way to the room from the reception, ask for a close room if you have a hard time orientating yourself. They also serve eveningfood on weekdays, and have a very nice staff at the reception.

I had researched hotels pretty intensively and knew I wanted to be located in the central area and the price was right for the Thon Gildevangen. It turned out to be a great choice. The location was perfect, the room was very nice and the breakfast was the best I had the entire trip. I made the reservation on their... More

The hotel was adequate, but both the bedroom and bathroom were extremely small. Very cramped quarters. Good location and nice breakfast buffet. Very friendly staff. Would look into other hotels if I return to Trondheim.

This hotel was very convenient to the train station and is described adequately elsewhere. Quite an elegant old stone building. Initial problem with the room as there was scaffolding outside the window but we were immediately given 2 other options by reception without problem. A major cleaning problem was that the previous guest had left a bag of soiled sanitary... More

We stayed here during the summer and the prices were really good for Norwegian standards, NOK 750 a night. The rooms are small but very modern and clean. The breakfast is of good quality and they even serve fresh herb tea. When you come with children they have a lot of facilities; play room and a special corner in the... More

I returned to this hotel because I had such good memories of it from a previous trip five years before. It has an impressive old graystone facade, much like elegant old apartment buildings and hotels in the older parts of many cities. It had spacious rooms with bay windows and well worn but nicely appointed furniture. This time around it... More

We agree with the reviewer who detailed the parking problems. Our room was spacious, bed comfortable,bathroom basic but acceptable. However, works on the scaffolding just outside our window commenced at 7:30 am! (Workman on 5th floor very nifty with screeching angle grinder tool...) to be fair once Alerted, the staff could not have been more helpful and brought the work... More

I am normally a low maintenance tourist causing hotels little in the way of grief but, before I had even arrived at the Thon Gildevangen, I had made two demands of the place. 1) I requested a quiet room as I had noticed feedback that it could be quite noisy out front 2) I indicted an early arrival well in...
