Decent hotel, rooms average. Great location by the waterfront overlooking the bay and the marina. Topp service, yes-can-do attitude in check-in, bar and restaurant. Best breakfast in the country! Lots of homemade stuff, topp quality!

It is hard to find any faults with Nidelven. The staff is attentive, overly cheerful, relaxed, the rooms have all you would expect from a business hotel, spotless, well stocked, everything is working, modern. The breakfast leaves absolutely nothing to be desired, must be one of the most elaborate buffets anywhere. The only thing is the size; if you do... More

We stayed one night, including a group dinner, breakfast, and a few beers midday. Dinner - we had a group on an August Sunday evening, so they offered a fixed 3-course menu. It was good, but expensive. Room - I think the hotel is configured so most rooms have a view of the water, which is lovely. Only instant coffee... More

Hotel Rica Nidelven is in a good location, just a short walk to shopping, restaurants and all of the local sites. Our room was large and nice, however it was booked by a travel agent and we ended up in the conference wing. We had to walk through a conference buffet, servers and crowds to get to our room. If...

We stayed here for only one night. The front desk staff was extraordinarily helpful, which I appreciated. Our room was spacious (it was a "superior" room) and clean, with nice accouterments. The breakfast buffet had a vast array of tasty choices. My own selections were excellent; my wife said that here were good but nothing special. Parking is a little... More

We stayed at this hotel in July specifically for their famous breakfast and were extremely disappointed. It turns out the breakfast quality is significantly reduced in July, and is for some reason only average or even below that (because they think tourists are gullible?). We have stayed here before and when the breakfast is good it is among the best... More

The hotel is beautifully located by the river, and the breakfast is brilliant. Although they insist that you choose your breakfast slot already the evening before! as if I knew when I'll be up next morning... this is not ok. My "business" room was tiny, and the entrance door got stuck on the bathroom door handle while I tried to... More

We enjoyed our stay in Trondheim very much and the hotel just added to our comfort. We loved being able to walk around explore the charming city due to its comfortable location. The staff was warm, welcoming and helpful no matter how many times we asked them the same questions.

We stop here every summer and the best reason for doing so is the breakfast. There are a couple of weeks in july with reduced breakfast quality, but still its just downgraded to normal good hotel standard. The rest of the year its exeptional. The hotel otherwise keeps a good standard as you would expect. Very central in Trondheim. Service... More

We loved the hotel because of the stylish rooms,the clean bathroom, the exellent breakfast, the great location, free internet, the friendly and smiling staff. The hotel is in walking distance from the town center with all the shops and restaurants. A perfect hotel for couples, solo, families, busniess or friends. I will be back!
