Thon Hotel Gildevangen

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I normally stay at Gildevangen during business trips to Trondheim. I've made a previous assessment of this hotel before, rating it four stars. Now it's became a five star! The breakfast room and food is really beyond what to expect for NOK 900 night! A small gourmet start in the morning with no rush of people destroying the carefully and nicely presented food. Rooms are newly renovated, and staff as kind as before. Don't tell about this oasis of low priced quality hotel centrally located in Trondheim :-)

The hotel is well located in the centre of Trondheim. There was a lot of building work in progress in the hotel. The room was comfortable but cramped. The TV system in the hotel had a fault and didn't function for many of the channels on the TV in the room, when I reported this the receptionist said he knew, but he failed to mention it when I checked in. The breakfast was adequate.

Great location, good breakfast and great service. This is my favourite business hotel i Trondheim. They are restoring the hotel as I write this, and I look forward to revisit. I could easily live here on vacation as well.

This is a good and Central hotel in the middle of Trondheim Centrum. They are refurbishing the hotel, but I did not get affected by that. The breakfast was good and they also served Supper for free. They had excellent WIFI compared to other hotels, and big and good TV with a wide range of channels. Looking forward to stay there again.

The hotels were under construction when I visited, so I had to exchange rooms when I arrived. I couldn't hear the TV at the first room. The rooms are average in Norwegian standard. They have free WiFi and a good breakfast.

Had a pleasent stay, and slept good. Breakfast was good. Has premier league channels, so that's a big plus. and it's in the middle of the city. Nice Staff. Stayed for 2 nights, and would choose this hotel again.

Nicely located hotel at the heart of Trondheim with a trainstation, Solsiden and beautiful jogging spots just at the doorsteps! The hotel is undergoing some renovations, but it didn't bothered me at all. The room was need and comfortable. It was easy to get up in the morning knowing that the perfect breakfast is waiting! This is my second stay at Gildevangen and I will definitely choose this Thon Hotel again.

Thon Hotels are mid-priced hotels mostly in Norway. In Trondheim, one would think it a luxury hotel. The service, reception, free breakfast, free supper and more - absolutely pamper the guests. The hotel was built in 1909 as a "farmer's home." The exterior is granite stonework. The interior is modern and comfortable. Because it has a historical classification, it looks basically the same as it did in 1909 - Beautiful.

Arrived about 9am after getting off a Hurtigruten ship for a four night stay. Just wanted to drop our bags off but the receptionist found us a room that was ready so we could check in early. This was really appreciated. This was a very nice hotel. Location is good, very close to the train station and also city centre. Quiet, clean, modern and comfortable. Rooms are a reasonable size. Breakfast was good.
