We arrived around midnight to the Bakeriet to be clerked in by an extremely unprofessional robotic receptionist who had probably received little relevant training or supervision in his job (his main focus being taking my credit card,not really bothered to take us through the very basics).
On check out we were greeted by a nice girl with a beautiful smile.Minimum interaction, no question about the quality of our stay something one would expect to get from a standard hotel but really no real complaint as she was so very genuinely nice.
The room was big in size and very quiet(which was nice).The interior of the room apart from an old picture indicating the history of the hotel was extremely boring with depressing choice of colours. The room was quite warm(we had to keep the window open at night so that we could sleep).
It had an ironing table and an iron, very handy for many people,I suppose.
Clean but old fashioned bathroom with little ventilation , very cheap quality hand soap and shampoo,no conditioner.
Extremely cheap quality stuff, usual supermarket bread(only three types, something rather odd for a hotel called Bakeriet, they could have branded themselves as The Hotel where you get freshly baked bread in the kitchen on the day, but hey, this type of thinking simply does not exist in the hotel business in Norway).
Boiled egg was cold.There were eggs that one could fry oneself but could be making a selling point had there been a staff member taking your order and making it for you so that you'd feel pampered.
Coffee was self service from a machine and bad quality.
Vegetables(lettuce, pepper, cucumber and tomato:all Rema 1000 cheap quality stuff). cut and served with no dressing available on the side for those who have acquired a better taste!
Cheap quality picked beetroot and cucumber from a can probably bought from the same low end supermarket.
Little choice in what Norwegians call pålegg, cheap salami and sausage that you would not feed to your enemies, very cheap tasteless cheddar cheese, extremely low end brown cheese,I could go on for ever describing their breakfast but I guess you get the picture.
Dinner: was included in price but thankfully we're spared the torture since we arrived quite late at night.
Close to the city centre and train station, airport bus virtually drops you off at the hotel doorsteps.
Not good value for money, over priced, not recommended, try to find a better hotel in Trondheim(and good luck with that as hotel industry is in dire state in Norway!).
