Right in ”the middle of everything” and only 5 minutes walk from the railroad station you'll find the nice and welcoming Thon Gildevangen Hotel. It is a pleasant and recently refurbished no-frill place catering to businessmen on a budget, stray tourists, travelling craftsmen and the like, who take an interest in getting the most out of their money. The hotel's... More

We enjoyed our 2-day stay at this centrally-located hotel making it a very useful starting point for exploring Trondheim. The staff were always helpful even if the building (well our part of it at least) was looking a bit faded. Another plus was the breakfasts which were of a good standard. On the negative side if you like a reasonably... More

I've stayed in this hotel in standard double room only for couple days but the size of the room and bathroom was unexpectably small. Even for european standards. Service, tidyness, location was rather good. Plentiful breakfast.

This hotel is suitable both for business and leisure. The hotel is situated very close to the main street and just a few minutes walk away from most of the city's main attractions. It's also right next to the railway and bus central which gives you great connection to the airport. The airport express bus stops right outside the entrance... More

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

Hotel is located in city centre close to the railway station. The airport bus stops at hotel. Our room was located in a building connected with a "bridge" to the old main building was bright and clean. The room had wooden floor and a very good bed. Both the room and bathroom were fairly small. The breakfast buffet had a... More
