The hotel is in a good location close to the centre and to the railway station. The rooms are very small. Service is friendly and fast, everything is clean. There breakfast buffet is good. There is no bar in the hotel.

Nice modern room and a good breakfast. The hotel is placed near by (1 minute) from airport coach stop, and only 5 minutes walk to the train station. The hotel is placed in the central part of Trondheim an i located in the restaurant area of Trondheim.

Located in the center, bus stop in front of the hotel (very useful when arriving from/leaving for the airport). Confortable and good services (e.g. free Wi-Fi, reach breakfast). Excellent for short business trips.

Usually stay in this hotel when on business trips to Trondheim. Centrally located, nice staff, small rooms, clean and relatively cheap. The extra star compared to the ordinary standard is the offer of a complimentory evening meal. Saves you some money compared to a meal in town.

Started our holiday by arriving after midnight having taken a late flight from Gatwick. Welcome was great even at a late hour. Rooms were fine but toilets rather small. We were there for 2 nights and had no realy complaints. Location was great and a few minutes from the train station. We were catching the 7.38 to Bodo where we... More

I stayed two separate nights during the same week at this hotel, and got two different rooms. The prize was the same, and good, after booking two months in advance on internet. The location is very good, around 5 minutes’ walk to the railway station. Checking in and out worked easily. The really good, and best thing, was that the... More

It is a young city with heeps of students. So it is not complicated to find affordable food. The rooms are spacious and clean. But it do prefer the outside of the... More

I should say it is really a good hotel with reasonable price, comfortable environment, nice receptionist and abundant buffet breakfast. By the way, the location is also very convenient, you will be very close to bus/train station, restaurants, shopping mall and so on.

Everybody were friendly and helpful, the hotel was nice and clean and the brekfast was excellent. The location was good (although Trondheim isn't a very big city so I think all the hotels have a good location). We stayed here with our two kids (8 and 10 years old) and we all really liked the hotel.

I would recommend this to someone who don't mind a little noise in central Trondheim. Great and friendly staff who helped out with whatever I needed. The room was clean and they have great breakfast. Like I said there was some noise, but I stayed there two nights in a weekend, and like every other city people go out on... More
