I stayed in this hotel years ago, it was so good to be back. Best Scandic hotel I stayed during my trip in Scandinavia. Located in new development area, only 10 minutes to walk to the city centre and old town. 15 minutes to the university. There is a big shopping centre next door as well. Room is really big... More

From the moment you pull up to its lovely green weathered copper side, you are greeted with large and warm smiles from all staff. The hotel is the epitome of clean and well designed. The rooms, while not large, are the perfect size for a single or couple traveling together. While featuring all the amenities you would expect in a... More

Had a nice stay here. Good service and clean rooms. A small shopping centre nearby and some really nice restaurants if you don't want to eat at the hotels restaurant. The meals in the hotels restaurants are tasty and the breakfast buffet is good and contains of some Norwegian specialities. :)

Felt new and very Scandic. Comfortable room, usual great beds of the Scandic chain. My only gripe is no tea or coffee making things in the room. You had to buy it in the lobby. This is actually really frustrating. Hotel well located in business district acriss from a shopping center.

Hi Thank you for choosing Scandic Solsiden for your stay in Trondheim. Nice to welcome clients all the way from "down under". I'm sorry we had to disappoint you regarding coffe/te making facilities in the room. We do not provide this in our standard rooms. But it is available in all our superior rooms. There is coffe and tea availble... More

Placed right next to the Solsiden shopping mall, the Scandic Solsiden offers a great stay for a weekend in Trondheim. Walking distance from the Central Station and with the airport bus stopping at several close by locations, it's easy to reach from the airport. It is also in close proximity to the inner city. Staff is very helpful and friendly,... More

Convenient location (the airport bus stops 10m from the entrance), friendly, helpful staff at reception (I had a minor computer issue which we solved), WiFi worked, I was able to watch the Monday night EPL match on my room TV and a very good buffet breakfast. Adjacent to the Solsiden shopping center which includes a potentially useful supermarket open until... More

Stayed for 1 night – typical overpriced hotel – nothing special. They advertise for best price deal on their webpage. It’s not the case – it is possible to find a cheaper price on the other web pages. After asking about their price deal conditions – they just said that I could book the room through the other webpage which... More

Hi Big Traveller from Oslo I'm sorry your stay wasn't up to the standards you expected, and I'm especially sorry for the mold you found around your bath tub. I can assure all Trip Advisor readers that we have gone through all 155 rooms, and started in September to take steps with those rooms where this was a problem. Luckily... More

The good: The location of the hotel is very good! Breakfast was good, and the room was clean and spacious (superior room). The not so good: The room was very hot, and we couldn't find a thermostat for the A/C. A lot of traffic noise when windows are open. Chairs in the room were uncomfortable.

Thanks for a adding a great list of our attributes in you review. We appreciate that. This summer was extremely HOT in Trondheim. I don't think there has been temperatures like this in the last 60 years or so. This resulted in a lot of rooms that were too warm, and I apologize that we weren't able to cool them... More

Nice and clean rooms. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. Classic norwegian hotel breakfast. Delivers what you expect but nothing more. The free wifi in the rooms is a bit unstable. Good location for anyone who wants to stay outside Midtbyen.
