Rica Nidelven Hotel Trondheim Reviews
It´s a delight to stay here Jul 03, 2010
Rica Nidelven Hotel opened in 2003. The hotel is built on pillars 17 meters out in the Nidelven river. It is conveniently located on the edge of the city center. The airport bus stops 150 meters form the hotel, the train station is a 5 minutes walk away and it will only take you 10 minutes to walk to the beautiful Nidaros Cathedral. Just across the bridge is a shopping center and several cafés and restaurants along the river.
I have stayed here many times on business and it has always been a pleasure. The reception staff is welcoming, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant staff is always friendly and helpful as well and the chamber maids very nice. It seems like they all enjoy working there.
Rooms are not the biggest, but are very convenient with a bed and a desk, typical European size. The bathrooms are small, but nice and clean (no bath tub). All rooms have free WI-FI, minibar, room service and Pay-TV. The only thing I wish that they had had is tea/coffee making facilities. And be warned, the chocolate, chips, nuts and wine on the desk are not complimentary, they are part of the minibar and very expensive, eg. a Kitkat is $5.
On the ground floor you´ll find the Broen Lunch and Piano Bar as well as Nidelven Restaurant. There are plenty of dishes to choose from if you don´t feel like going out. The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast buffet. They have been awarded "Twinings Best Breakfast of the Year" four years in a row, and rightfully so. This breakfast is something you would only expect in a 5 star hotel and not in a hotel chain. There are several "stations" where chefs are making omelets, eggs, fresh juice of your choice, cut home marinated salmon, a counter where you can get all kinds of coffee drinks etc. The breakfast buffet even includes Champagne!
To burn off all these goodies you can sweat in the fitness room downstairs.
Rica Nidelven Hotel is also running a conference center in a separate building next door. There is an indoor access from the hotel.
I always enjoy staying at the Rica Nidelven hotel and will continue to stay here in the future. It is highly recommendable.
