Thon Gildevangen Hotel Trondheim Reviews
Don't expect to much Mar 22, 2011
Been there for a weekend in mars 2011.
The hotel is lovated only 5 minutes from the central station and the city center. Så talking about location it's great.
Talking about the price. I cannot complain, because I got a special deal as a result of a membership i an organisation. But when I compare this hotel to Ricar Nidelven, it's not that much more expensive but the hotel is much better.
I had a single room (non smoking) and the room had an Ok standard. The bed was quite big (140x200), you had a TV, a chair, a desk and an armchair and free WiFi. The room was clean, had a very high ceiling and the white walls were a little bit too white for my taste. The room felt cold (NOT was cold^^). The bathroom was clean and all one need to stay a few nights.
One thing the hotel should invest in is cleaning windows. Never seen such dirty ones in a long time. A minus for this.
The ladies at the reception were nice and friendly. Nothing to complain here, the entrance hall is quite nice, modern (and you can get free coffee).
The hotel offers breakfast and here I have to say it was just a little bit above youth hostel standard. I tried a lot and everything cam out of a box. The waffles, the scrambled eggs, swedish meatballs, sausages... everything. You got no information what kind of jam, fish or cold meat you put on your plate, the bread and the rolls where deep-frozen ones (you can tast that). So, you got food but for the price they take they could offer more. As a friend said "Olav Thon (the owner) didn't get rich by offering extras for the money you pay".
Overall review: It was an Ok stay. If you need a place to sleep central and want an Ok roomstandard. But paying full price I would take som NOK more and check inn at Rica Nidelven - best breafast in Norway (and that's the truth!).
