“Good Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Great breakfast station with a griddle where you could fry your own egg! Lots of selection of breakfast foods.

They also offer a simple light supper which is included in the price. Nice salads, meats and cheeses. Plus hot roasted veggies and a beef stew. Tasty and very convenient after a day of site seeing. They also offer free waffles in the afternoon but we missed that.

Room was creatively decorated with comfy bed, pillows and two relaxing chairs. Clean and neat.. only down side is there is no way to regulate the temperature of the rooms except by opening the window. This seems good but you can only open the window a small crack. They did have great black out curtains for the midnight sun but if you close the curtains you cover the bit of ventilation that you have.

Right along the river so a convenient location and plenty of places to enjoy walking to see the sites.

I would stay there again.

This is one of Trondheim's most expensive hotels. In spite of that, everything seems to be ordinary- just like a 3 star hotel. Except from a helpful staff, the hotel didn't create any wow feeling. Breakfast selection/area was poor and small, a little plus for fresh orange juice. The hotel was clean and the rooms are quite large. Being that expensive the hotel should offer sauna and gym.
There are several other hotels in the same good location where the prices are lower with much better facilities. Go for the Radisson or Rica instead.

This hotel has a great location in central Trondheim, everything you need within walking distance of the hotel.

The service is very good and the employees in the reception are very helpful. There is free wifi throughout the hotel and the rooms are big and they look very nice, although the showers are embedded in the tubs which can make it awkward taking a shower. The hotel also has DVDs which are free to borrow and watch in your room. In the May month there could be some nuisance due to the Russ celebrating and playing loud music from their busses.

Overall excellent hotel which offers good value with a nice breakfast and tea and coffee 24/7

I have booked a room for my boyfriend's birthday and I wanted to have a nice room with a view and everything and the hostess at the reception managed it so we could have a better room for the same price! She have upgraded us for free. The room was amazing! Huge bed, amazing view and nice decoration. Super snack and nice breakfast! We had a great time!

A good hotel on a very central location, with shopping centre and the major concert hall for Trondheim in the same building.

Room of decent standard, with a very good bed. Free wifi as expected in a hotel of this standard.

Bath room ok, but shower is to be done standing in the tub, and water will be finding it's way to the floor. Could be difficult for people with some problems getting in and out of a wet tub.

Breakfast room a bit small, and did not offer place for everyone who wanted to have breakfast the morning I was there. Selection for breakfast was ok.

It is a short walk from the nearest airport bus stop to the hotel, but nothing major.

We stated in a standard twin room, which was as described. A pretty standard hotel room which includes the things you need. The size was pretty descent, and the beds were comfortable.

It is easy to see that it has been a while seens the rooms were refurbished, especially in the bathrooms. Also, the electrical wiring is a bit weird. For instance, you have to use special sockets to recharge your phone during the night. You can't have it by your bed.

Breakfast was good, but I've eaten better at other clarion collection hotels (such as folketeatret in Oslo).

I didn't take advantage of the evening meal, but my travel companion did one of the nights. It was a pretty good salmon meal, according to him.

The location is in the small city centre of Trondheim, close to most tourist attractions and

The room rate was pretty low, so you get a lot of bang for the buck in this hotel. It is not very luxurious but not a budget level hotel either. I'd recommend it.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are plenty for two people.
