We stayed at the Thon Prinsen twice, for two nights upon arriving in Trondheim by train from Oslo, and again for one night a week later after our road trip through Nordland before we took the train back to Oslo. The hotel is centrally located and in easy walking distance to the major attractions (Cathedral, Old Town Bridge, Old Town,... More

Thank you so much for your feedback :-) You probably visited us at the busiest night during 2016 because of the conert, so the hotell and the whole city was pretty full. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation, and we hope to see you again if you visit Trondheim. More

Where to begin. This hotel really made me grumpy. Clearly some travellers are wet behind the ears as they seem to think the Thon is actually a good option.  1. The breakfast is like a battlefield. Not enough space, poorly designed Egon's doubling as a breakfast lounge. On the way to the room on arrival and at breakfast and every other... More

Nice and modern rooms, the breakfast is served in the Egon restaurant just adjacent to the hotel lobby. It was a bit disappointing that the hotel's parking area was full when we arrived, but the guy at reception was very helpfull to find another parking not so far away. The location is very central, just a few minutes walk from... More

Stayed for two nights with my husband and 3 children aged 11, 12 and 15. The business rooms are spacious and actually fitted all five of us comfortably. Parking available NOK 150 per night. Breakfast with ample choice incl hot dishes. Nicely appointed room with tea/coffee making facilities, minibar, comfortable beds etc. One side of the hotel is facing a... More

Centrally situated this modern hotel can at best be described as average. My bathroom was poorly designed and it proved impossible to contain the shower water in the room. There was a nasty small step at the side of the shower area. The bedroom was adequate. Room servicing trolleys are parked in the corridor at all times. Buffet breakfast is... More

Hello, Thank you so much for your feedback. I am so sorry about the shower. We are about to start replacing all the shower walls so that this does not happen any more. As for the breakfast we have moved it from Egon and up to our own restaurant on the second floor. Hope to welcome you back next time... More

Very central location, still quiet. Parking in backyard. Friendly staff. A very good alternative in Trondheim. Breakfast is on a general good level, not overwhelming varieties offered, but what you need before your start for the day.

Was here in Trondheim and stayed here for one night. The room was very clean but a little chilly. Wifi is free . The breakfast was really good. As the hotel is so centrally located you can take all the buses to different parts of the city. Also the hotel is close to the old town so you can easily... More

A very nice hotel, with very friendly staff in a great location, close to loads of bars and restuarants! The only thing I would say is if you are staying in the summer go for a room at the back of the hotel as there is no air conditioning and our room was very hot as the sun was shining... More

Good location in the centre, adjacent to the Torg shopping centre. Clean rooms; comfortable beds, (most?) bathrooms have walk in showers rather than a bath. Good wi-fi. Friendly and knowledgeable reception staff. A large Egon restaurant on the ground floor is used for breakfast - self service - good selection of cold meats and the hot food includes fried eggs,...
