Centrally situated. Clean rooms, but ordinary at the price paid. But chose this hotel before other hotels in Trondheim at the same price. Why? Because they´ve probably the best breakfast norht of Oslo

This is the third time i come in Trondheim and I have always been in this hotel.

This hotel have the best breakfast ever. The service is excellent and the staff do not miss anything. I've cut one star because the room we had was quite small (we ordered a normal room with a queen sized bed). Ok size if you're traveling alone, but... The location is central to the rest of the city and has the... More

Booked a superior room for one night. Superior? Other hotels would call it standard. NOT worth the extra money. The lobby was loud and noisy. Could barely hear what the staf in the reception. This hotell has a reputation for Its famous breakfast......well, Its just a ordinary breakfast these days. Ordinary hotell that wants to be more then they are.

Breakfast is this hotel's big selling point, but I found a number of issues that make breakfast less enjoyable than it should be. 1. I came on Thursday and was asked at check-in to decided right then which seating to eat at in the weekend. This adds stress and is a big inconvenience. 2. There is one (!) small toaster... More

I was greeted by a very helpful Helene at the front desk. She helped explain everything from the gym location, the directions to my meeting, and the breakfast situation. They love to talk about their breakfast bar and it was indeed extensive. It even overpowers many US super breakfasts in terms of selection and variety of high quality foods. It... More

Scandic moved us from obs hotel to another in advance if our arrival. This caused problems with the shuttle bus from the airport and we arrived late with two young children, had to walk across town at 1am and the pre booked children's beds had not been transferred.
