This is a good radisson blu property,centrally located and having been to Trindheim twice before ,made me wonder why I didn't stay here before. The hotel is being renovated and I am sure it will be great.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and the room was good. Better rooms are likely to be available after reno...

Arrived hoping to find a 4* hotel but instead got a 2* room similar to a Travelodge. It was very small and cold. Despite a small heater provided it was not great. Major renovations and scaffolding up and expect drilling etc from 9-7pm. Swimming pool was out of order due to renovation but we were not informed of this when we booked with Expedia!
Breakfast quality poor compared to other 4* hotels.
Consider seriously before you book as there are other better quality hotels nearby.

A comfortable hotel about five minutes walk from the Central Station and the bus station. We travelled there by airport bus which meant it was very convenient for us. It is also about 10-15 minutes easy walk from the city centre. The hotel was undergoing some renovation when we were there (December 2013) but this wasn't a nuisance. The hotel will look great when it is finished.

Loved the terraced café/bar and the breakfasts which were simple and wholesome. We had booked this hotel as it has a spa and were disappointed that the swimming pool was cold and the whirlpool was five minutes on and fifteen minutes off. Can see this would be a problem if the hotel was very busy. I appreciate that the hotel is 'eco' but why oh why not have a warm pool? Also we felt a bit sorry for the stuffed bear apparently shot about ten years ago and now mounted in lonely splendour watching the renovation work.

Overall, good value worth it for the location.

Room Tip: Aim for one overlooking the water.

We booked here in July for one night's stay in November and got a really good deal. At very short notice (our Hurtigruten ferry was cancelled) we needed to stay another night in Trondheim but the last minute room price was too high so we stayed at the nearby Clarion Collection Bakeriet instead on the second night, which was fine but not a patch on the Royal Garden. The Radisson is a really classy hotel, undergoing some renovation at the moment so suffering a bit. However, it's still well worth coming to. Superb choices for breakfast. Excellent pool and gym facilities. Great location in city centre, by the river and close to fab restaurants. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which is why I've not given it full top marks.

You expect a very nice experience when staying at this hotel. Long history, classy interior, great look from outside. Went there with my wife to have a great stay when visiting our student daughter in Tronheim. But we were disappointed. Ok, they are renovating, but during the week-end no work was done anyway. The room was smaller than expected. I am not a fan of air condition, especially when it is centrally controlled - meaning you cannot turn the heat up or down. So it was a bit too cold during the day and too warm during the night. To switch it off is no option since you cannot open the windows. Result: Bad sleep, even though the beds are good. The breakfast was very average in a large noisy room with no small tables for two or four persons. Hoped for a nice and peaceful Sunday morning breakfast, but it was very crowded, the coffee was weak ... And these minor issues like having a small cup for the jam, or cutting up more of the fruit. Showing that they have not thoughts things through, and the customer experience is not what comes first.

The Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel is doubtless among the better city hotels in Norway. It has a central location in Trondheim on the left bank of the river (Nid). I was given a newly refurbished room on the first floor (247 -- this is the second by Norwegian counting). The size was generous and the furniture and decoration was of good quality and delicate style. The TV was big and had good signals (HD). The wi-fi was included in the room rate (10 mb ps.) and so was the tasty breakfast. I have been staying at many different hotels in Trondheim, but my first night at the Royal Garden Hotel will make it an easy and deserved choice in the future. Nice staff & bar. Thank you!

I stayed here for two nights as part of a group of friends. The location of the hotel is very good, the breakfast the same. There are som issues with this hotel, most of the windows does not open to fresh air, but to a indoor atrium. There is also a lot of renovating going on, but I gguess it will be better once finished. We had a renovated room, and it was nice. The beds and pillows are to die for, some of the best I have tried in a hotel.
