            I think it's like 5-10 years in head of time, will probably feel like a quite normal place in 2022!

              Agree... from what I have seen in videos of the insides, it's a pretty awesome hotel.

              When anyone of you come to stay in Trondheim, please stay there so I can go inside and take pictures....

                As already mentioned in the World hotel room views thread, I decided to stay at Clarion Hotel and Congress in June 2013. As I was visiting Trondheim to see the ship Serenissima on her first visit “home” to the Trondheimsfjord, a hotel right next to the cruise terminal at Brattøra was the obvious choice. Besides, I’d wanted to go there after being inspired by pakarang’s marvellous photos here in this thread.

                As words like awesome and amazing are likely to figure a lot in what I write about this hotel, I should perhaps start by saying what I didn’t like so much. That was the bedroom. There wasn’t really anything actually wrong with it, nor did it lack the amenities for a hotel room of this type, but it lacked the wow factor I'd been expecting.

                Possibly this feeling was exacerbated by having stayed in a hotel in Hamburg just a few weeks before which, though also part of a chain (Sofitel), could like this Clarion be described as a ‘designer hotel’. Now that was a room where I wanted to spend time and simply enjoy being there.



                I’d even say I am rather flattering the Trondheim hotel by showing a photo taken late on a very un-midsummer-like wet dark evening when I’d switched on all the lights, giving the room a touch of cosyness. It looked more ordinary in daylight. Oh and I didn’t even think to photograph the very ordinary bathroom.

                  While we are here you are probably curious to see what those windows are like from the inside. I showed what it’s like looking out and attempting to photograph the view in the general hotel thread.



                  I actually have no idea whether those dots confer much environmental benefit or are more a design fashion statement – dots as art suggested by the phrase at the bottom right of the frame.

                    I didn't spend much time in the bedroom, but I did hang out a lot elsewhere in the hotel. Let me show you around and I think you’'ll understand why. My room is on the 8th floor and is at the end of the corridor near the lifts, so you only have to step out of the room and there's this splendid space - now that really is wow! There was even a fashion shoot happening here one afternoon.

                      Here on the ground floor is the entrance to the hotel reception and lobby – it's the inside of the entrance shown on pakarang's photos #1/1 and 1/2 at the start of this thread.




                      Reception is off to the right, and ahead is "Atmosphere" – Breakfast was served here, and other meals and buffets, and it connects through to the left lounge and bar area called "The Living Room". More photos of these areas later.

                          If you walk past reception, between the reception desk and the lifts shown in the last post, you find yourself in another huge adaptable lobby-lounge-like space which is the "Congress" side of the hotel. Here there is a separate desk dealing with conference and meeting arrangements, and coffee breaks and functions might be taking place. The separate entrance seen on the right of this photo is the one pakarang photographed in #1/3 and 4.



                          On the left of the photo, and above us when we walked through from the hotel reception, you see several "bridges" at varying angles on some of the floor levels. These link upper floors of the two wings of the hotel, and the various views and lighting and spaces are amazing.
                          Here I'm looking up towards two of the highest bridges

                              Thank you for sharing Cecilia.This hotel pleases me.
                              Bravo for your photo in #14:it reminds me of the movie shot in Orson Welles' The Lady Of Shanghai's.
