We stayed here for 4-nights. Staff were very helpful throughout. Rooms were clean and well kept. Lovely views looking over all the boats moored up. A short walk away to all the restaurants in town. An excellent breakfast.

We had a nice stay at this hotel. It is located right on a boardwalk of sorts with several restaurants within walk distance. Our room was pretty small but it had what we needed. The breakfast in the morning was an expansive buffet with almost anything you can imagine. We ate and ate. Nice place to stay if you're staying... More

Stay here if only for the breakfasts. This hotel presents the most amazing and diverse collection of breakfast items, all of them fresh and delicious, of any place we have ever stayed. That aside, the rooms are clean, comfortable and modern and the location of the hotel, a short walk from the train station, is perfect for visiting the sites... More

The Hotel is famous for it's breakfast; rich choice of traditional courses, but also many local tastes from nearby producers. Friendly and helpful staff at your service. Nice central location by the bank of river Nidelven.

The hotel is centrally located not far from the train station in Trondheim. The 'Solsiden' area with shopping, restaurants and nightlife is also close by. We arrived at the hotel early in the morning and were pleasantly surprised to get our room right away. Got a nice room overlooking the river. Not too big, but nice and clean. The hotel... More

This is my fifth visit to Norway and having stayed at numerous hotels I have to conclude that Norwegian hoteliers simply don't grasp the concept of hospitality. I've yet to rate a Norwegian hotel with more than 3/5 and from four hotels on this trip the trend continues. Don't get me wrong, Norway is a stunningly beautiful country and the... More

Amazing breakfast, cool staff, great atmosphere. It's located near every thing, only 5-10 min walk from the city center, not that you really need to go anywhere because the bar and the restaurant down stairs is amazing, but it's a little expensive.

The hotel is very conveniently located near the railway station (and 10 minutes from the harbour where the coastal ship docks) and within 5 minutes of the town centre and the very popular new restaurant area across the footbridge beside it. Rooms are comfortable and staff very friendly and helpful, However the outstanding feature is the breakfast which is included... More
