Hei Øystein, Tusen takk for din tilbakemelding! Du har helt rett, det er ikke slik vi ønsker at våre gjester skal behandles. Dette er noe vi tar på alvor, og har tatt tak i allerede. Det gleder oss å høre at du er veldig fornøyd med resten av oppholdet, og lei oss for at dette ødelegger helhetsinntrykket. Igjen, takk for at du tar deg tid til å skrive til oss. Mvh Hanne M. Holan

Scandic Bakklandet is absolutely the hotel to stay at in Trondheim. The rooms are great. The floor is wood, not any carpet in sight. The breakfast can not be better. If you can't find it here, you won' t find it anywhere. My place to stay when I'm in town.

It was a rather dark experience to stay at the hotel. The room only had a window in the ceiling. There were lamps but the lighting was dim. The drain in the sink was blocked. Breakfast, bed and location were fine.

Very nice location in the middle of the town. Short way to ALL. The parking is narrow and dangerous for cars. Not in cooperation with the hotel. Expensive! Near by the nice atmosphere og the old town Bakklandet. Walking distance to the city and to the Cathedral.

Nice modern hotel. Unfortunately you do not have a view of the river and the interesting old warehouses along the river where the hotel is situated, because most of the rooms only have windows towards narrow spaces between buildings. Strangely, the room was rather cold even

Dear Guest! Thank's for your feedback! We have 169 rooms in the hotel, and unfortunately, it is not possible that all rooms have river and sea views. We try to meet the guests' needs as far as possible, but on weekends we often have a full hotel and it is difficult to meet all needs and wishes. We have a high focus on breakfast and it is very regrettable that you experienced warm food as cold. We will of course improve where it is needed. Hope to see you at Scandic Bakklandet again! Mvh: Espen T, Acting General Manager

As far as I remember, it starts at 7.00 – but it is better to ask the hotel. You do not have much time to catch both a very small breakfast and the train at 7.50, even though the train station is not that far away. Have a nice trip!

They definitely have parking, it's in a large parking garage attached to the hotel. It certainly came at a cost, which I can no longer remember, but you can ask the hotel. From the hotel we were able to walk everywhere, so a car was no longer necessary. We just left it in the garage.

Yes there is on site parking in the garage - the price is NOK250 per day (or NOK22 per hour).

No idea - sorry.

The room is spacious, so should not be a problem, but I would also suggest that you send a mail to the hotel.
