“Amazing breakfast”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed here for one night, The room was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly. The tv in the room was massive! Wow the breakfast, So many things to choose from! There was even a cake section, Danishes, Jam Donuts, Custard Donuts, Carrot cake. I was in heaven! Fresh Juices aswell as a huge hot dish section, breads etc. Very Good!

I had heard about this hotel and most of all about its breakfast, rated as the best hotel breakfast in Norway. Well, a bit suspicious - how fantastic can a hotel beakfast actually be?
let us start with the hotel. Good location close to the sea, great art by the renowned Norwegian painter Håkon Gullvåg on the walls, friendly staff and nice and comfy room.
I had the lunch buffet there, very good and then, the morning after, the famous breakfast.
It was great. It had literally everything - homemade, local, healthy, tasty. Different stations served everything from fruit shots and smoothies, omelets, meat, fish, yoghurts - you name it, they got it. Everything was marked to know where it came from. A barrista made the coffee you wanted.
best of all - it was included in the room rate, which was not shockingly high.
I have already booked my next stay.

Room Tip: Ask for seaview

A comfortable, modern business hotel in a superb, central location to see Trondheim. We used it as a transit point, spending one night there before travelling on with Hurtigruten further north. We explored the town for a short while and settled on eating dinner in one of the local adjacent restaurants. The hotel breakfast is probably the best I have ever enjoyed. It is spectacular! The hotel is also close to the docks and an easy walk to the Hurtigruten terminal.

Stayed here summer 2012 with my husband and 11 month old daughter. The staff arranged for us to have a crib set up when we got there for our daughter and even hooked us up with a large room with a nice view at no extra charge. The rooms are really nice and the hotel is in a great location right on the Nidelven river in Trondheim. Of course, the best part of this place is the breakfast. I can honestly say the breakfast spread is the best I have ever seen at any hotel. The list is too huge to mention but it would probably be easier to list the stuff they didn't have. Everything was fresh and tasted great. I only wish I had a bigger appetite because it was just not possible to try everything. Yes, this place is a bit of a splurge but we honestly found it worth it, if nothing else for the breakfast alone.

Sure, the hotel is nice, rooms and bath clean and well appointed, architecture interesting (although it's a far walk to the "outer" rooms of the hotel, which is in two parts). Location is not bad, either. However, the breakfast makes the stay worth it on its own. Just make sure you have enough time to enjoy it - several baristas, local delicacies, 20+ kinds of bread etc etc.

Convenient location for transport links, railway station and port both within walking distance. Also easy walking to town centre with a good selection of restaurants. Rooms on the small side but very clean as was the rest of the hotel.
Now, that breakfast. My wife thought I was lost I spent so long on my selection. Really everything you could think of in a buffet breakfast including Buck's Fizz.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in February 2013.
I reviewd this hotel one year ago, and not much has changed. The location is still superior, and the breakfast is the best hotel breakfast I have ever tried. Staff is extraordinary, and the experience is special in this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the river/canal. I had a room facing the road outside, and it was a bit noisy...
