The overall service was great, the breakfast outstanding! Staff made dinner reservations for us when we couldn't . Location wonderful, we walked everywhere, waterfront, cathedral, small shops in old town, grocery store. Our only complaint was the lack of practical priced parking, but understand this is a problem for all of Trondheim. The free bike rental was also a big...

We stayed in early July 2014 and found the hotel to be of a very good standard. You can park in the car park underneath the hotel but it isn't cheap 350NK for two days. Rooms are modern with no views whatsoever in our case or the hotel might have got an excellent rating. Breakfast was of a high standard....

We found it worth the few extra hundreds kronors for superior room with view and French balcony overlooking the river. Especially nice on a sunny +25C evening. Good location close to city centre, historic sights as well as Solsidan restaurant mall. Great breakfast too and kept both buffet refilled and tables fresh and clean. Friendly and service minded staff, helpful...

This is the 6th place we have stayed at during our trip to Norway -- including a youth hostel, camping cabins, and nice hotels (including another Rica, the Holmenkollen Park hotel in Oslo), and, despite being one of the most expensive (especially with 175 NOK parking), so far the Rica Bakklandet has been the worst. We just arrived only about...

Trondheim was our first stay in Norway last February. The Rica Bakklandet was a great place to start out. The hotel was comfortable, and the views from our room were gorgeous. The location was excellent, allowing us to walk everywhere, and the staff helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was absolutely amazing, and we couldn't help trying everything, resulting in...

I've been staying at the rica hostel just one night. The room was really clean and comfortable, the diner was excellent and the break first awesome (only home made stuff) ! The staff is really nice, friendly and helpful. Best place I've been in Norway during my two weeks trip. It's a bit expensive, but it worth it.

Well located in the center of Trondheim, close to harbour restaurant area. Friendly and smily staff. Excellent breakfast buffet. Good seminar facilities. Not an incredibly gorgeous hotel, but a nice location to stay.

I arrived here late due to some changes in my morning drive schedule. I was quite tired and I knew my Norwegian would suffer in conversation. No worries. My reserved room was issued to me quite efficiently and professionally by the front staff whose command of RP English would make a BBC announcer proud. The staff would always acknowledge me...

I stayed two nights with my teenage son, who was on his way to a CISV Camp in Trondheim. We loved the peaceful room, great shower, and delicious breakfast - homemade jam, freshly squeezed orange juice (so nice after travelling), excellent bread and smoked fish selection - it combined the traditional breakfast options with a lovely range of new things...
