“A nice hotel with good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2009

This is a nice hotel placed not in the center of Trondheim, but close enough. You just have to walk a few minutes more.

They have their own parking, and to get there you have to use the entrance of a general parking house (from what i remember this was also named Solsiden) on the side of the hotel (signs inside the parking house will show you the direction to Scandic's area). From there you can go directly into the elevators which will bring you to the floor you want to go.

The breakfast was very good, and the inside of the hotel is an atrium which gives the eating area much light. They also had a friendly staff.

nice modern hotel in the "new" center of trondheim.
Nice rooms, with big og lovely beds. Flatscreen tv and a good bed room. Our room faced the inneryard, otherwise it could bee a bit noisy as the rooms are facing a very busy street.

If you are looking for a central location in Trondheim, you almost can't beat this area. All in all our hotel stay was ok, but here are a few points:

The room itself was very loud. We heard others in neighboring rooms as well as noise from pipes and/or outside almost all night. The beds were also not very comfortable.

Many young professionals/students seemed to be staying here. The 1st floor common area has wireless and was a nice place to get work done on a laptop.

Breakfast was ok, nothing special.

This is a modern hotel with welcoming staff.

Rooms include:
-central heating (also during summer)
-window you can open (opens inwards and feature a storm hatch)
-minibar (automatic)
-free internet access (RJ45 cable provided in room)
-cable TV (with pay-tv options)
-wall-mounted ironing-board with iron (no steam)
-shower (no tub)
-hairdryer
-night-light (nice detail in the wall lets dimmed light from the bath-room enter the room)

No in-room safe is provided.
No air-conditioning is provided (but generally you won't need this as summer evenings in Trondheim rarely see very high temperatures)

Tap water is safe to drink. (In fact Trondheim has very tasty tap water. No need to shop for water.)

Comfortable beds
Adequate water pressure in the shower
Well stocked breakfast buffet
Airport shuttle service stops nearby (Flybussen)
5-minute stroll to the city centre

The only peculiar thing about this hotel is that you can only operate the elevators by using you room key.

Car parking facilities in the basement (entry through the public parking house next to the shopping centre. Take ticket at the gate. Validate the ticket, at the hotel receiption, every time you leave the garage. Take new ticket every time you return to the garage. Hotel reserved parking spaces are located at the lower parking deck (follow signs inside the garage), and there's an elevator which will take you directly your room floor from the parking deck. Parking fee pr. 24-hrs is NOK 120 which will be charged to your room bill.

Room recommendations:
Silence: #506
Stunning view: #621

Book early through the hotel chain web site to receive very favourable week-end rates. Hilton HHonors points can be earned.

I stayed at this hotel when I went to Trondheim on a business trip.

The hotel is in the new 'business' quarter, the aera is something similar to the 'Docklands in London'.

The hotel was modern, with good facilities, the rooms were well equiped, clean and comfortable, similar to other rooms in the same chain. There was free inernet access in the rooms.

The hotel is very close to a road full of restaurants and bars, offering a big selection of food and entertainment.

The area is quiet and pleasant in the evenings.

The breakfast selection is quite varied, with both cold and hot food buffet stlyle.
