“a gem of a hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This stay was part of our "Artic Highway" Challenge Tour. Having driven 319 miles since breakfast we were delighted to find this modern hotel . Firstly and most importantly (when travelling by classic car) the car park was situated under the hotel with excellent access and protected by barriers. The rooms all have a minibar and private bathroom with shower .The level of cleanliness was top notch and we found the room to be very quiet. We did however have electric blinds which may have assisted in this. We had booked a "tour" dinner which was beautifully presented and French inspired but with local ingredients. Breakfast was extremely good with a fantastic selection incorporating all European tastes. We especially liked the fresh orange machine which actually squeezed the oranges directly into your glass. The hotel was opened in 2011 and so looks fresh and new and only a short walk from the older scenic areas of Trondheim

Rica Bakklandet was good for us! We came off the Hurtigrutten very early but the hotel checked us in and gave us rooms early so we could go explore the city. We walked the city and explored the Cathedral from there. We were able to get a bus to the airport from the hotel early next morning and others in our group walked to the railway station.

I stayed at the hotel for one night, (5th july 2013) prior to collecting a couple of BMW Motorcycles from the local dealer to tour Norway.
The room was very spacious and very clean. The food, (breakfast) was outstanding, with several choices ranging from smoked salmon and caviar to fruit and pastries and a bit of a fry up. There were numerous beverages on offer, and the staff were not only friendly and helpful, but nothing seemed too much trouble for them. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

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 )
