Stayed here a couple of nights for business. The location is good, the hotel clean and the staff friendly. There is a bar in the reception that serves foot and one restaurant. The best thing however is the excellent breakfast, I recommend taking your time through the various breakfast stations. From the boost-lady to the cheese-guy, there is basically everything... More

In the past few years we have visited Trondheim during fall/winter time. This was the second time we stayed at Scandic Nidelven (previously a Rica Nidelven ). Rooms are small, but ok. Not tip-top (shower headpiece was leaking), and in neither stay we had a view. At our previous visit the hotel had been known for serving best hotel breakfast... More

I'd been told about the breakfast - it didn't disappoint! No wonder so many non-residents come in at weekends to enjoy it! My room was fine - comfortable though someone with a hearing problem often had their TV on high volume nearby! Wifi was erratic - so ended up needing to come into the lobby to make further travel and... More

We had a great couple of days indulging in the breakfast and Sunday brunch extravaganzas at this fine hotel, while hurricane Ole passed by further north. However, do make a reservation for the brunch the day before - even though the hotel staff tells you it's not necessary. It is! And beware of abundant amounts of cold pan cakes and... More

A nice hotel, with ok size rooms, clean, and close to shopping and resturants at Solsiden in Trondheim. Check-in and check-out was quick and the staff were friendly. We heard some clubs or music quite good in our room when we went to bed, but it didn't keep us awake so then it didn't matter. What made us book this... More

Scandic Nidelven, former Rica Nidelven, is a big hotel Centrally situated in Trondheim. But though it is a big hotel, you feel welcome and safeguarded. The staff are very polite and smiling and you get the feeling they really see you and care for you. The check-in was quick and nice. We had a superior room, that was really big... 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
