    View from room was facing another building, staff was not really willing to help me find some local facilities.

    Location in the center of Trondheim is great. Breakfast was good.

    The breakfast provided was top-notch, a really plentiful selection. The hotel was quite despite being downtown. Parking was conveniently provided inside the hotel at a fee. The rooms were very comfortable, had a good view and had sufficient additional space in the room.

    Nothing - everything was brilliant

    Breakfast was excellent and thoroughly recommended. All the staff were really helpful. Very easy travel with Flybussen airport shuttle. Particularly liked the left luggage on my final day after checking out in a locked secure room.

    - room key-card when hold close to mobile phone were getting disconnected, so there was a need to go to the reception everytime you forgot about it - poor security - receptionist were not asking for a name once asked for fixing the room key-card - breakfast - poor variety. If you stay in this hotel you will get to eat english breakfast every day,no national things to try - room in a 4star hotel were very used- broken chair, scratched bathroom doors. - hate the mirrors in the room- you can not see the middle part of your body because there is a huge space between the one you can see your face in and the bottom one. So you can't see yourself in the mirror properly. - noise in the room- the air conditioning were really loud all the time

    - nice to get 'to go' coffee in the reception - close to the centre, cathedral, nice view from the 5th floor

    All was fine, except what mentioned above. Great wiev from the room over Trondheim fjord.

    I became VERY surprised that I should pay 200,- NOK more when we (two persons) arrived at the hotel reception. That was more than the price showed on the web booking page at booking.com. I had not saved a screen dump, because I booked from a computer at another Thon hotel. I gave up to discuss at the reception. Hope you can tell me why I should pay this extra. Brgds Martin

    We had to pay extra for on-property parking; however, street parking is available, but then you have to move by 8 am, otherwise the vicious Norwegian authorities will give you a very stiff fine.

    We loved the fresh salmon with the breakfast.

    The bathroom was very small and a bit awkward. When showering, everything got wet.

    The breakfast was very nice and the people were very nice. The location was perfect for running around the area and enjoying the sites, food, and drinks. Transportation to and from the airport by bus was inexpensive and very easy.

    Clean, simple, central hotel with a very good breakfast buffet. Check in and check out were very simple. Friendly staff, I would recommend this hotel further for traveler visiting Trondheim. Airport transportation is easy as the busses take off from three minutes walking distance.

    Charge of $100 for only 7 small pieces of laundry!! Ask for a price list if you need laundry done. There is some traffic and party noise from outside... Rooms are quite dated but for the price, OK. Spend more money somewhere else if you need a lot of quiet time.

    EXCELLENT price and location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel within just a few blocks of all kinds of fun, historic sites.
