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.

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.

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...
