Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

The Hotel is located in the middle of the city centre of Trondheim. The rooms are OK, the location is great, the staff is nice, but the breakfast buffet was probably the worst in Trondheim. It is also a bit challengeing to find parking nearby.

Located practically in the middle of Trondheim (near the city square). Always met with a smile both when arriving and leaving the hotel. Nice rooms and good food without to much fuzz and fancy stuff going around at breakfast. Absolutely a good place to live when visiting Trondheim

Where do I start... I guess, I'll just chronicle my experience from the beginning. Upon arrival to my room, first thing I saw was a used plastic cup sitting on the clothing rack right in the mini-hallway. OK, I thought, stuff happens. The room was small, but since I was alone this time, it didn't matter much. However, I have...

Adequate, but pokey room; tiny bathroom with no bath. Tea & coffee but no tea that requires milk as there is no milk! Glad we are only here one night. Nice little Italian round the corner though.... food much more reasonable than here!

Thank you for your review. I am so sorry to hear that your stay wasn't perfect. We have 5 different room types with 5 different sizes. Most websites has the size of our rooms described, so the guests can see how many square meters they are before they book. We also have some rooms with bathtubs, just ask for it...

Reaception staff and room was very nice, but breakfast was abysmal. Reused old food, food still frozen, and of very poor quality. It's a good job other cafes and McDonald's are in near vicinity. Next time I think I will save my money and stay budget!

Very friendly people working in the reception, spacious rooms and very central. The breakfast is tasteful and it is very convenient to have a meal downstairs at Egon. Shopping close by and many good restaurants.

I stayed in a room for 4 people and one of the double beds was actually a really small sofa. In addition, the room did not have any big light, only small ones next to the bed. The water in the shower was extremely hot and did not change temperature. On the other hand, it is located right in the...

We stayed at the Thon Prinsen twice, for two nights upon arriving in Trondheim by train from Oslo, and again for one night a week later after our road trip through Nordland before we took the train back to Oslo. The hotel is centrally located and in easy walking distance to the major attractions (Cathedral, Old Town Bridge, Old Town,...

Thank you so much for your feedback :-) You probably visited us at the busiest night during 2016 because of the conert, so the hotell and the whole city was pretty full. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation, and we hope to see you again if you visit Trondheim.

Where to begin. This hotel really made me grumpy. Clearly some travellers are wet behind the ears as they seem to think the Thon is actually a good option.  1. The breakfast is like a battlefield. Not enough space, poorly designed Egon's doubling as a breakfast lounge. On the way to the room on arrival and at breakfast and every other...
