I'm staying at the Scandic Nidelven for 4 nights on a business trip. Hotel is in a good location within walking distance of the town and easy access to the airport via bus. Room is clean and comfortable and I was pleasantly surprised by the size (although I am in a queen size room). The room card can be a... More

It was a pleasurable experience to stay at this Hotel. It is conviniently located - the trainstation is a block away, and shopping and great restaurants are within a short walk. The hotel is known for its breakfast. It was much more elaborate than we had anticipated. All types of Italian/French coffees, tasty Norwegian delicacies, pastries, breads, jams, all types... More

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Breakfast is outstanding and I thought splitting it into two 'shifts' at weekends was a good idea given its popularity. We found a table very readily and the service was excellent. Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped though the view over the road was a bit dreary! The hotel... More

One of the best hotels in Trondheim, centrally located between solsiden and the city center. Simple, modern and clean rooms, a decent restaurant and a breakfast buffet that have won "best hotel breakfast in Norway" several years in a row. The breakfast is almost worth the stay alone.

Overnight stay before heading onto our cruise ship. Everything ticked the box for our stay with our 2 children. Contempary rooms with decent shower room. The hotel reminded me of a lovely looking trifle you don't get too excited about until you actually tasted it. The breakfast were sublime and the tasty custard in the dessert were the Barista, rather... More

Great breakfast and good location but the noise from some crappy tribute band playing great hits from the 1970s is keeping me awake at night. And it's not even a weekend... Dreadful, and the management don't seem to want to do anything about it.

I've stayed at the hotel twice. The first time I had a room facing the front of the hotel. All night there was a high pitched noise from somewhere in the harbour. The second time I got a room facing the highway. As the room didn't have any (functioning) air conditioning, it became a choice between a hot, stuffy room... More

Dear AlfBrero. Thank you for taking the time to give us valuable feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had trouble sleeping during your stay, and that the room temperature was too high. Unfortunately there might be some city sounds when you keep the window open at night, given our location in the city center. This is most likely... More

The hotel itself is quite big, and quite new and modern. The rooms are very nice, although a bit on the small side. Big TV, water boiler, expensive minibar. Nice and clean. The superiour room didn't look any superiour to me, except maybe the river view, but else ok. Quite long to walk with luggage to get to your room in... More
