“My new favourite hotel in Trondheim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

My first time in this hotel. Usually Rica Nidelven is my choice. This hotel is a 4 mins walk from Rica Nidelven and Solsiden.
The hotel is brand new and thus has a lot going for it in terms of smart solutions and comfort. The reception area is spacious and impressive. The hotel bar on the ground floor is nice, but try the top floor bar! The view is great, and the bar/eating area are very trendy and fun to be in. Great selection of beverages!
The room was standard size, but effective and clean. Quiet and just perfect for a couple of nights of business-travel.

New hotels have a great advantage. They're super shiny with few noticable flaws. The Clarian Hotel & Congress is just that. What makes it spectacular is that it's so big and impressive and lovely in its shinyness.

Yes, I often focus on design and architecture in my reviews, because that's what I like. The service was great at the checkin and checkout. Super quick and efficient, which is always great.

The service in the rooftop bar and the Living Room bar was also exceptional. Subtle but friendly and very efficient.

The room was stylish and cool, with everything you need to make yourself comfortable. I love a hotel that gives you several pillows to choose from.

I was at a conference and the whole hotel was a smoothly oiled machine.

Great location right on the harbour, five minutes from the train station if you're coming from the airport or on the airport bus.

We went to the Christmas Party arranged in December 2013 with high expectations as the program indicated top quality food & beverage, great entertainment and excellent service. Short story is that the site was too crowded, the food was dull, and the service was non-existence. As for the entertainment we could have done with a professional DJ. The announced artists only performed for a short interval. We’ll find another site for this years Christmas party. Price per person was NOK 1295 for the three course meal exclusive beverage.

I had the good fortune to stay at this during a business convention, so did not get the opportunity to experience all of its facilities and services. What I did see though was uniformly excellent, with impeccable standards of customer care and service and exceptionally well-appointed and comfortable rooms. Although Trondheim is a bit of a trek - and Norway is on the whole eye-wateringly expensive - I would definitely recommend it highly to anyone thinking of visiting.

Stayed for one night while attending a seminar. The hotel is bran new with a modernistic style. Location is very nice, close to the seaside and just a 10 min walk from city center.

Room was delightful and perfect in size. Nice view over the fjord from my window.

Access to gym just outside the hotel was a big plus. 3T pirbadet is a big gym where you can jog and watch the fjord while you work out!

Both breakfast, lunch and dinner was very good.

All in all, a perfect conference hotel. Would also stay here with my family.

Room Tip: Ask for seaside view.

Hotel was overall very nice. Stayed here for seven nights.

Pros
- great breakfast buffet
- nice large gym and pool beside the hotel that is complimentary
- large lobby and lots of lounging area
- staff were very friendly and helpful
- bed was comfortable
- fly bus from airport stops right in front of the hotel.
- there is a grocery store beside the hotel

Cons
- a bit outside the main city but still walkable.
- food selection nearby is very limited and not ideal if you need food late at night.
- rooms are a bit small even for Norway standards
- internet password changes everyday which is a bit annoying.

Also had some problems with phone and television which I hope is not always the case. Also, there was a convention when I stayed and they had a party and the music was playing til 1:30am. The noise was very noticeable in the room even with ear plugs. I wish I would have know in advance and in fact they should not allow it. I was just getting over jet lag and this really threw off my sleeping for the rest of the week. Not to mention I went into the office with almost no sleep the next day.

Nice hotel and probably won't have a problem staying here but I will consider other options as well.

Good sized room with Big windows and a sight to kill for. Breakfast was fantastic, and the skybar had everything, great decor and atmosphere. You just got to love to stay at this hotel. Location is great and near by the city center.
