The historic Britannia Hotel was founded in 1870 in Trondheim, Norway. Today, it is the northernmost Grand Dame hotel in the world. Britannia’s storied past includes hosting royalty, diplomats, explorers, celebrities and artists. After being purchased by Odd Reitan, the hotel was closed for a three-year, $150 million renovation. Reopened, fully restored in April 2019, Britannia is a 5-star hotel, and the northernmost member of The Leading Hotels of The World. The hotel is also a member of the exclusive American Express Fine Hotel & Resorts program. Britannia Hotel first opened its doors to its discerning guests in 1870.

The oldest part of today’s building is the grand, cream colored façade, which dates back 1897. Entirely renovated in 2019, the hotel has been named the Best Hotel in Norway by Fodor’s and has appeared on many “best of” lists.
