Thon Hotel Gildevangen

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great hotel! The room was new and fresh. It even had a small Bose speaker for playing music. The Gym was unusually good for a hotel. A rowing-machine, bike and threadmill, plus some weight lifting stuff. Very good. The breakfast was great! Surely one of the best in Trondheim. All in all we were very satisfied, and I will definitely stay there again next time!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights, and we were shocked to find out just how great this hidden pearl of an hotel could be. The breakfast fast truly amazing, and we have travelled quite a lot, but this was really something else. The service at the hotel was just excellent. We have travelled many times across the scandinavian part of Europe, and we've heard a lot about how great "scaninavs" were at customer service. This though, was really beyond all expectations. The receptionist was happy to print out our travelling documents. He informed us about places to go, and helped us a great lot to find all the tourist pearls of Trondheim. We even got a discount at at local restaurant, just because the receptionist knew someone who worked there. This hotel is truly amaizing, and even though the rooms might be a tad small we found that the service provided by the reception, as well as the impeccable breakfast, we would pay twice what we paid for our room. Thank you Thon Gildevangen for an excellent stay! We assure you that you will be seeing us again!:)

We have spent a night there. 2 adults and a kid. We have a very nice room - double bed + a convertible sofa for our daughter. Once opened, almost no place to move but they give us a room at the 6th floor and the view was amazing (corner windows). The breakfast was really good and with finally a great coffee machine. I recommend this hotel if you need to be near the pier (cruise departure).

Great location in the middle of the city. Breakfast was ok, but room for improvement. A bit annoying when they run out of stuff and don't fill up. When eating breakfast you should be offered the same selection as the guests that ate 30 min ago. The room was in a different part of the building which made it a bit cumbersome to get to the room carrying heavy suitcases. Good sleep quality thanks to comfortable beds and good sound insulation. Air quality in the room was good. Bathroom clean with sufficient size. All in all a good hotel which offers fair value.

The rooms were clean, maybe a bit overdesigned.The bathroom was clean. Nespresso coffee i the lobby and breakfast room. Breakfast buffet was good (although I really don't see the point of having a chef making omeletts if he/she doesn't take requests and the omletts are really overdone and dry)

Checked in to hotel and the room key for allocated room did not work. Keys replaced and new room 459 allocated. Not only do I now have a view of the air conditioning unit I have the whining noise of the machinery to look forward to tonight. Absolutely happy that we have only one night here. Would not recommend this hotel to any of my friends. I am writing this in real time.

New fresh lobby and rooms since my last stay. New nice breakfast arrangement and the food is still excellent. They also refreshed the training room to a new high standard, even though the location could be rethinked. Training "on display" is not my favorite activity

Very convenient location, just few minutes from everywhere in Trondheim and just few steps from the Airport bus stop. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast and in some period of the year the hotel also offers free buffet dinner. Free wifi in the hotel. Rooms are very clean, confortable with TV and bathroom.

The location was perfect, in the middle of Trondheim city, close to everything. The hotel was renovated in great colors, and the staff wasnice. I recommend the breakfast as well, it is good :-) A clean, fresh hotel. Try it :-) And they serve supper for free.

I have recently stayed in several Thon Hotels and I am definitely becoming a great fan. Like others, This Gildevangen was personally and colorfully decorated, with kind personnel and with charming details like free coffee machine in the lobby and guest umbrella in the room (and with 5 extra euros it was mine).
