Radisson Blu Hotel in Trondheim Norway

Our flight back to the Philippines is at 8AM so we had no choice but to book a hotel so we won’t miss our flight. The earliest schedule of the boat is 6AM so hindi na kami aabot if magbiyahe pa kami, at least 2 hours before flight dapat nasa airport na kami. So we reserved a room last April at Radisson Blu Hotel Trondheim. This is where my husband stayed too when he went back to the Philippines. Check here for my review.
Fast forward to our Iceland trip, we took taxi, ferry boat and bus to Trondheim Airport. We had 3 big luggage + 1 hand carry trolley luggage. We did not have a hard time in commuting because everything is accessible naman, yun lang mahabang lakaran to the bus station. 


Kanya-kanya kami bitbit, rain or shine tuloy ang biyahe. Thanks to our jacket at ni hindi kami makapagpayong sa bitbit. hehehe!
Upon arrival at the airport, we walked towards to Radisson Blu Hotel because we’re going to leave our 2 big luggage. Though we have baggage allowance on Iceland Air, we didn’t want to bring it anymore. Good thing that the hotel allows us to leave our luggage even our reservation is 4 days ahead. I experienced leaving luggage after check-out but this is the first time that I left our luggage before check-in. I was worried at first because nandun lahat ng pasalubong ko and of course damit namin ng anak ko. But my mom said, ano ka ba Norway ito, safe yan luggage niyo



After 4 Days in Iceland, we arrived back in Trondheim and walked to the hotel. We got our luggage and kung paano ko siya iniwan, ganun pa rin siya hindi nagbago. I took picture of it kasi for proof. Hehehe! 


My mom checked-in and off we went to our room. As expected, the room is not that big, with its price, pang 5-star hotel na dapat yung laki ng room but unfortunately, rooms are not that big. This is the room, excuse me for the mess because I was repacking again. I need to fit our 4 days laundry to our luggage back to the Philippines.

I was supposed to use the hand-carry trolley luggage of my mom but it was broken, nasira siya nung pag-uwi namin. Sinama kasi namin sa check-in and we can’t buy a replacement because it was holiday so closed ang mall so I have no choice kundi isiksik gamit ko sa 2 luggage. 

Anyway, this hotel offers basic accommodation if you need a place to sleep in before or after your flight. The bed and pillows are comfy, there is TV pero wala naman mapanood (English Channel). hehehe! My mom requested for an extra bed for NOK150. 





The bathroom is also small. There is complimentary soap, bath gel, conditioner, and shampoo. But there is no bidet. 




The hotel has a restaurant but when we checked the menu, we did not like anything so we walked to the airport just to buy food for our dinner. 



We had buffet breakfast at Longhorn Restaurant and Bar. It is not that big and the buffet spread offers bread, cold cuts, eggs, salad and drinks. When we're about to finish, I notice the breakfast menu on our table, sayang hindi ko agad nabasa, I want omelet and bacon pa naman.



Anyway, we did not stay long because our flight is 8AM so we checked-out and walked to the airport. It was a nice feeling that we had a good rest before our flight, first-time ko yung naglakad lang papunta airport. Pag na-late pa naman kami di ba, ilang tumbling lang. 

P.S. They have free wifi and free ice cubes, I saw an ice dispenser after the elevator.

  1. Wow, good thing the hotel agreed to leave your luggage few days before your check-in. Ayos! The buffet breakfast is not grand but looks delish, kagutom!

  2. i used to work as a trainer for a real estate firm before. as always, the marketing peeps from that branch office will book me in hotels which is very near or adjacent to the airport. I appreciate this kind of thoughtfulness because i could extend my sleep instead of traveling early just to catch a flight back home.

  3. Mukha naman maganda yung room and the hotel overall. I guess it's a little bumming if walang mapanood sa TV na english channels hihi. But was there wifi?

  4. There's a Radisson Blu hotel in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia where we stay and it's funny because your room looks almost the same! Haha and yes, it's not that big with such a high price. Yun nga lang we stay there because there are soldiers/security guarding the hotel, which is a company requirement for approved hotels to stay in. :) Yung buffet, ganyan din. :)

    1. Yes, their room looks the same but according to my husband, his room in Brunei is a little bit big compared to Trondheim's room. Konti lang ng food noh?
