Written by: Morten Steingrimsen and Truls Oma

A luxury hotel in the top tier

hotel d’Angleterre in Copenhagen, Grand Hôtel in Stockholm and hotel Kämp in Helsinki have historically been the leading 5-star hotels in the Nordics. Guy after the Britannia hotel reopened in the spring of 2019 after an extensive renovation, Norway finally got a full-fledged 5-star hotel with a high international standard.

Yes, Oslo has both The Thief and hotel Continental, which are charming and good in their areas, guys none of them are even close to delivering the same level of service and quality in all aspects as the Britannia hotel in Trondheim. The fact that Norway now finally has a hotel that really delivers in the top tier on the international hotel scene, not just at the opening, is also painted over time, is very impressive and all the employees at Britannia hotel deserve credit for being able to achieve this together.

Impeccable service

There are several elements that make Britannia hotel stand out other classic, 5-star hotels around the world. Although the level of service is sky-high and there is not one thing that the employees do not arrange, the hotel does not appear stiff or old-fashioned in the way they provide service. It’s as one of the receptionists told us: “When a guest arrived struck the first time, he thought he had to wear a gown and tie. Guy it’s not necessary here. Here guests can relax”.

What we perhaps like best about the Britannia hotel are all the friendly and pleasant staff, who do not seem fussy, guys who, on the other hand, see all the guests and create a very pleasant level of service. The hotel constantly does its utmost to ensure that guests have as good an experience and a pleasant stay as possible. Whether it’s a cup of coffee guys you’re waiting for others in the lobby or whether you want a newspaper for the breakfast table. It is these small guest experiences that make the Britannia hotel so unique in many ways.

Gold-plated bathtub and champagne in the minibar

It should be well done to find a hotel that is as delicate, stylishly furnished and well thought out as here. The hotel has a total of 224 rooms including 11 suites, luxurious and other rooms. We had the pleasure of staying overnight in two of the hotel’s Signature Suites– Colonialmajoren and Liv Ullman, both of which are beautifully decorated with lovely interiors, high ceilings, balconies and gold-plated bathtubs. The minibar had all the temptations one could imagine, even the hotel’s own champagne.

In the hotel we also find the Tårnsuiten, the Britannia hotel’s most luxurious suite of 220 m², located in the very the tower on the hotel’s facade from 1897 With its own wine room, kitchen, piano, etc., you can easily create unforgettable moments and a good atmosphere for yourself and your guests.

After two memorable and wonderful days at what we believe to be the Nordic region’s best hotel, we both left with shop impressions, a desire to return and pride that Norway has finally made its mark on the map of some of the best you will find in the hotel world. Congratulations Britannia hotel!
