Fodor's Expert Review Britannia Hotel

Dronningensgt. 5, Trondheim, Trøndelag, 7011, Norway Fodor's Choice

This was Trondheim's first grand hotel when it opened in 1897, and more than a century later the Britannia remains one of the most luxurious places to stay. The well-appointed rooms come in a variety of styles, including some designed for women travelers and some featuring works by artists who have stayed at the hotel over the years. The hardest part might be deciding which of its restaurants to eat in. The elegant Palmehaven is popular for special occasions, the Mirror Room is a must-try for foodies, and the Jonathan is more rustic and laid-back. Relax in the swimming pool, work out in the gym, or get treatment at the spa.
