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.

Good location, average to good breakfast, small rooms that feel rather like student accommodation, but they are ok- overall the cost is a little too high given the higher quality of other hotels in the area for the same price

Hi Pete Thanks for staying at Scandic Solsiden in august, and thanks for taking your time to give us a review after your stay. We have different room categories and therefore different sized rooms at Scandic Solsiden. Some of our rooms are as you mention quite small, with a Queen bed. I imagine you had one of these rooms. They... More

Scandic Solsiden is a nice hotel closed to downtown in Trondheim. There is a nice parking place linked to the Hotel (180 NOK per day) and a rich breakfast for the guests, I actually appreciated the fact in the various food choices for breakfast there was the indication of lactose and gluten presence. Since I am lactose intolerant I appreciate... More

Spent a night here as part of an itinerary with Authentic Scandinavia. My mom and I found the location to be very convenient, the staff friendly, the room very nice, and the breakfast good. Several good restaurants within easy walking distance.

Two nights at this hotel in July 2014. Hot weather and no air condition in the room. The reception was nice and welcoming. We got our room and then we asked when the restaurang opended and what they served. The reply was that the restaurant was closed during summer time. We got a discount card of 15% on a restaurant...

Hi there marathonrunner! Thanks for giving us a nice review. Hope you had an enjoyable stay in tropic Trondheim this summer. We're pleased to hear that you were happy about our breakfast buffet and that our location is valued. This summer we closed our restaurant, since there's an abundance of restaurants right outside the hotel with open air terraces. And... More

We have stayed here several times when we have visited the lovely city of Trondheim. The location is really good. Its close to the entertainment area Solsiden, Its close to the old part of Trondheim called Bakklandet and the "old city bridge" landmark. The city centre is about 1-1,5 km away. The rooms are not too big, but of high... More

This is a nice hotel, but watch out for the laundry prices. They do not provide a price list and when the bill comes it is a whopper. Imagine being charged 285 USD for a medium size bag of laundry (2 pants, 3 t-shirts, 6 underwear, 6 pairs of socks and one or two other items)! I know that Norway... More

Dear Roger First of all, thanks for your review and feedback. Second, I'm sorry for your encounter with Norwegian laundry prices. Most hotels use external laundry companies and prices are very high compared with other countries. By normal procedure we always show our clients a price list when they come to us with laundry, so that they are aware of... More

The Scandic Solsiden is perfectly located in the new entertainment area of Trondheim- lots of restaurants, bars and shopping nearby, plus close walking distance to the cathedral, all the old warehouses along the river, and the main shopping area. First a warning on getting there- we jumped on the airport shuttle expecting to be dropped off outside the door. There... More

Dear Frans I enjoyed reading your review about us, and hope your stay in Trondheim was great. You mentioned a very important thing for those travellers coming to Trondheim by air plane. There are two airport shuttle buses. Make sure that you take the grey one, called "Vaernesekspressen" as this bus stops 25 meters from our hotel. No problem taking... More
