Founded by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason as the first capital of Norway, Trondheim is a city rich in history surrounded by forested hills and walking trails. Museums and art galleries tell the story of the coastal city’s past which features the 11th Century Nidaros Cathedral and the since-restored idyllic 17th Century neighbourhood, Bakklandet. In recent times, Trondheim has enjoyed a renaissance as a forward-thinking university town. The hotel itself is located in the city centre, within walking distance of the main railway station and many of the town’s sights and attractions.
With floor to ceiling windows, clean lines and timber cladding, the hotel is built in a typically Scandinavian style. This carries onto the rooms, which are all appointed with innovative, modern furnishings. Even the toiletries are from Sweden. The Superior rooms come with views of the river wending its way through the city and the Extra Superior feature large bathtubs to relax in. Lastly, the suites have living areas and commanding river views.
For the last seven years running, the hotel has been recognised as having the best hotel breakfast in Norway. With that in mind, guests enjoy new takes on old favourites and an incredible variety of Norwegian specialities such as elk sausage and cheese. There’s also a dedicated juice bar with innovative flavours to ensure that you leave well refreshed. The restaurant serves a weekday lunch buffet and, at dinner, puts on a modern six-course menu. The food is inspired by contemporary international culinary trends and uses only the best local produce.
Whether you want to take the city tram to Bymarka, Trondheim’s nearby mountain and forest “recreational area”, or are looking for guided tours of the old city wall and church ruins, Hotel Nidelven’s staff can point you in the right direction. The hotel’s gym, complete with dumbbells and weight and cardio machines, helps balance out the moreish breakfast buffet.
