Britannia Hotel – An Historic Hotel, Spa and Restaurant House in the Old Viking Capital of Norway

Having reopened its doors three years ago, following what many consider to be the most comprehensive hotel renovation ever conducted in Scandinavia, today Britannia Hotel is flying the flag for luxury travel in the Nordics.

The ambitious renovation project cost the independent owner more than 1.2 billion kroner, which has really put the hotel on the map again. A luxurious five-star establishment, in the center of historic Trondheim, garnering great interest from travelers from all over the world.

Built on history: Britannia was established to provide 19th century so-called ‘Salmon Lords’ with a slice of luxury, while they were fishing the world’s greatest rivers.

The hotel first opened its doors to its glamorous guests in 1870. It soon became a unique gathering point, and has gone on to host some of the city’s biggest occasions; Fridtjof Nansen’s presentation to the Geographical Society about his arctic explorations in 1895, the dinner of the Japanese Prince Takamatsu (son of Japanese Emperor) in 1930, the coronation of every Norwegian royal for a century, the visit of Queen Elizabeth II of United Kingdom in 1969 and Princess Märtha Louise’s wedding in 2002.

The newly renovated hotel tips its hat to the establishment which hosted these occasions, while simultaneously upping the standards and creating a modern classic venue.

Modern design and wellness in the center: today’s House of Celebration is a collection of details which will ensure every guest achieves exhilaration and relaxation in equal measure. Including, but not limited to:

  • Britannia Spa & Fitness. A modern, elegant oasis of tranquility boasting several treatment rooms, a heated lap pool, sauna, steam room, ice bath, gym, and infrared cabin.
  • 233 beautifully designed rooms and suites, all with marble tiled bathrooms, Hästens beds, classical tapware and all luxury amenities.
  • A restaurant House encompassing six bars and restaurants. These include the spectacular Speilsalen which achieved its first Michelin star just nine months after opening and the infamous palm-lined ballroom Palmehaven, as well as more down-to-earth eateries such as Brasserie Britannia and Jonathan Grill.
  • An impressive wine cellar, with over 10,000 bottles, to be enjoyed in the Wine Bar or the award-winning Britannia Bar.
