“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We only stayed for one night as we were travelling to watch our football team play Rosenberg. Hotel was excellent - we managed to check in when we arrived which was late morning and we were very grateful as weather was not good. Breakfast very good and appreciated eating overlooking the water. Happy to recommend and hope to return for a short break

This is our second stay at Rica Bakklandet and we like it very much. When choosing between different hotels when travelling in Norway, the Rica hotels always get extra points for the lovely breakfast - this was no disappointment at Bakklandet!

The hotel is modern and clean, staff very friendly, elevators quick (!) and location superb.

I travel to Trondheim for business and always stay at the Rica B.
Pros: Nice & helpful staff, good rooms (although small), great breakfast.
Cons: Nothing major...The pictures in the rooms are probably the ugliest I have ever seen. ;)

Excellent value for our superior room with a view over the river . Enjoyed a fantastic breakfast .After 2 weeks camping and canoeing this was what we needed ! Bus to the airport stops outside the Hotel .
Really helpful staff .If we go to Trondheim again this is the Hotel for us :-)

Room Tip: Get a room with a river view ( if you like boats and old buildings )

On the riverside. Close to the very center. Clean and quite, despite of the position on a street with traffic. Staff at the reception is very kind and helpful. The breakfast is not so rich sa it is at the other Rica hotel (very close) but anyway good and with fresh food and crispy bread.

Although this is a limited frills hotel, it has something special about it and one of the best I have stayed in Norway. It is a relatively new hotel and features functional Scandinavian architecture. The living areas are warm and friendly and although the rooms are typically “Nordic” small, they are very comfortable, even without the usual hotel frills. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. However, the best thing about this hotel without any doubt is the truly superb breakfast. I am now finding it very hard to get good breakfasts during my travels around Europe having the breakfast at this hotel now setting the benchmark. The restaurant at the hotel is also very good. Highly recommended.

Welcoming, clean, comfortable and very well located -- these words are no exaggeration. Our one-night's stay in May could not have been more pleasant. Staff were not only courteous but very helpful -- offering to let me use their computer, for example, so that I could print something, and volunteering to find and print a map of where I was going the next day.
It is a little hike from the ferry terminal but the hotel is in a great location to explore the old and new, from the Cathedral and university section to the buzzy restaurants around the old ship-building area..
The breakfast was spectacular. The variety, the quality, the aesthetic display of the delicious food was the best way to wake up on a sunny day in this interesting city. We also had supper in the evening and the food was extraordinarily good -- one of us had superb local veal.. And my halibut was simply the best I've eaten. You will be glad you chose this hotel.
