Very friendly people working in the reception, spacious rooms and very central. The breakfast is tasteful and it is very convenient to have a meal downstairs at Egon. Shopping close by and many good restaurants.

I stayed in a room for 4 people and one of the double beds was actually a really small sofa. In addition, the room did not have any big light, only small ones next to the bed. The water in the shower was extremely hot and did not change temperature. On the other hand, it is located right in the... More

We stayed at the Thon Prinsen twice, for two nights upon arriving in Trondheim by train from Oslo, and again for one night a week later after our road trip through Nordland before we took the train back to Oslo.

Where to begin. This hotel really made me grumpy. Clearly some travellers are wet behind the ears as they seem to think the Thon is actually a good option.  1. The breakfast is like a battlefield. Not enough space, poorly designed Egon's doubling as a breakfast lounge. On the way to the room on arrival and at breakfast and every other... More

Nice and modern rooms, the breakfast is served in the Egon restaurant just adjacent to the hotel lobby. It was a bit disappointing that the hotel's parking area was full when we arrived, but the guy at reception was very helpfull to find another parking not so far away.

Centrally situated this modern hotel can at best be described as average. My bathroom was poorly designed and it proved impossible to contain the shower water in the room.

Very central location, still quiet. Parking in backyard. Friendly staff. A very good alternative in Trondheim. Breakfast is on a general good level, not overwhelming varieties offered, but what you need before your start for the day.
