“Centrally located with polite staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Located in the down town of Trondheim this hotel has been a local institution for decades. While the competition has increased it may no longer be the premier hotel in town, but still a nice place.
We came by car and the hotel has valet (valet is not normal in Norway) parking in the basement, as parking spaces can be hard to find down town this is a huge plus for me, a tad expensive but as it saves so much trouble and time it is worth it.

The staff was very polite and courteous.

The room was clean with a comfortable bed. The room had what must be the last CRT hotel-TV, have not seen them i a long time. The hotel was in the middle of do renovating, and by the look of the room (a bit dated but not worn down) this will be taken care of shortly.

The breakfast was good with the normal selection of dishes, spreads and cold cuts. As a bacon aficionado I was pleased to see that they offered plenty of perfectly cooked bacon. (So many places don't offer bacon these days)

Bottom line:
Centrally located, on site parking with polite staff and comfortable and quite rooms.

Great hotel. I had top floor room where the window opened to the outside. Smoking room. Hotel is being refurbished and definitely needs it. My room was very tired and had trouble with the ancient tv. But my colleagues room had already been updated and was much nicer. Will be great once the refurb is finished.

I stayed here for one night with a friend before going on a trekking tour in the wilderness further north.
The Radisson's location in Trondheim is very convenient, we could walk to and from all places which we were interested in.
The room we got was newly renovated and matched the standard we expected.
I had booked a cheap prepaid rate via one of the large booking portals - so the value for money was excellent.
Service was even better: The friendly staff offered to store some of our luggage while we went hiking - without any extra charges. When we returned two weeks later, we asked for a room for day use, to take a shower and freshen up. As they had none available, they gave us access to the wellness area so we could use the facilities there - again for free. I was impressed by that level of customer service and will certainly stay here again.

While I have no issue with the rate paid (hey, it's Norway), I did find it odd that they charge NOK160 for regular television channels to watch sports etc. Aside from that, the wifi worked well, the hotel was in a good area with easy access to the express bus to the airport, the room and bathroom were clean.

The staff were friendly and had no issue trying to help me find tickets for Rosenborg's Europa League match. Check-in/out was quick, simple and accurate. I would definitely stay here again and I hope to do so in the future one summer.

The glory days are surely over for this Trondheim institution. Rooms and public areas are outdated and run down, food is so-so. Service was adequate, but that's it. Do yourself a favour and spend you $$ somewhere else - Trondheim has plenty of better choices.

The hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable; all you need. A bit expensive but what isn't in Norway these days. Breakfast is a treat with almost anything available. You are in the middle of town, right on the river so access to town, restaurants and shops was easy

Room Tip: We stayed on an upper floor with a good view of the river.

During my stay in September I found both service and facilities to very good. The hotel is quite large, in Norwegian terms anyway. Excellent location for shops etc downtown. I slept well and the breakfast was fantastic. This hotel is a good and safe choice, and defintely good value for money!
