Friendly staff at all times, helpful too. Room was clean and well presented and was genuinely non smoking! Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and fresh and varied. Good enough to make up a snack for lunch too. Electronic room key system was a bit unreliable but other than that all good. If visiting Trondheim again we would seek this... More

I stayed here for 1 night and had a great stay. The staff were very accommodating with my request for a late check out and the bedroom and breakfast were excellent. Perfect for a weekend base for Trondheim and the surrounding area.

We stayed at the hotel a weekend (Friday - Sunday). Even with room on the 5 th floor, the noise from the bars at street level was so loud it was impossible to sleep with the windows open. The air in the room was stuffy, with no where to turn up the air condition. In other words - bad sleep.... More

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
