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...

It was my first stay at this hotel and having booked a single room I was pleasently surprised when I didt get a double room with a sofa, bathrobes and slippers. Nice and quiet room in the annex, good breakfast, pleasant staff and very good location.

We had a nice family room (two couples) in the Thon Hotel Gildenvangen in Trondheim. The check-in was really fast and we could occupy the room already at 11. The personal was friendly and the breakfast was really nice. The hotel is close to the city centre and I would come back again.

Spent one night in a standard double. Extremely impressed with the value for money - a small but very clean and tastefully decorated room with all necessary amenities for less than 600NOK for one night, including breakfast. The location is great - close to the station and to the city centre, the staff were extremely friendly. Free coffee and cookies...

Location was well placed between old and new sections of a very historic town. The room was new and very spacious with new fittings and a large screen tv. The staff were helpful and were a pleasure to speak to.
