The story

Britannia hotel first opened its doors for its glamorous guests in 1870 and was a vibrant place in its splendour – a unique gathering point for the people of Trondheim, where the latest news and trends were shared among prominent guests from abroad and local residents.

From merchants and politicians to pioneering travelers fishing the magical Salmon runs of Trøndelag, Britannia has been their meeting house. A cornerstone of Trondheim, and one of Scandinavia’s most prominent hotels.


Throughout history, Britannia has had the honour of being host to the Royal Families of the world. Where pioneers and glamour meet. The place where the eminent Norwegian explorer Fritjof Nansen briefed the geological societies of the world on his intrepid explorations into the Arctic North. Later as a politician meeting at Britannia with the great leaders of Norway’s independence to sign the nation’s sovereignty. From visionary politics and exploration to the glamour of international stars of screen and stage, Britannia has been host to cultural shapers for over a century.

It is safe to say that if the walls could speak – they would tell of wondrous and inspiring stories collected from prominent guests and visitors across generations of hospitality.

When we now open our doors in 2019, after a 1.2 Billion NOK refurbishment, it is with great humility that we have taken on the task of building the hotel for the 21st century while keeping our heritage and history close. Our new owner Odd Reitan has since his childhood dreamed about Britannia  – and his vision of re-building one of Norway and Scandinavia’s best hotels is to again make it a place that serves and collects stories for the next 100 years.

A unique hotel designed, curated and staffed with heritage, style, and vision; for your pleasure and lasting memories.
