A very nice cosy hotel. Spacey room, good bathroom, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. The location at the southern tip of Tromsø eiland offers you panoramic view over the Bay and surrounding mountains, attractive walking along the shore, and in a 4 minutes walk the cosiest pick nick place of Tromsø! On sunny weekends the place to be. A good bus... More

There's not much to say. Simple hotel, comfortable and with all you may need, with nothing accessory. It's a great option if you're short on budget: a double room with breakfast included costs 880NOK (around 110€), which is a great price for Norwegian prices. The hotel is a little far away from the city centre, in the south of the... More

After just over a week in hostels in Oslo and Bergen it was lovely to get to the Sydspissen Hotel in Tromso. All the staff on the reception were very helpful and provided me with any information I needed to know. The room was basic but clean and large, with a decent bathroom and shower. There was a television with... More

Stayed four nights in triple room - we had booked a twin room but were lucky enough to be put in a room on the end of a corridor with windows looking across the water. While this hotel does in some respects resemble a hostel it has a lot going for it, particularly the location. It is at the southern... More

We stayed here as part of a trip around Northern Norway, we weren't expecting much, but we were so wrong. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the communal food area gave us the opportunity to mingle with other travellers and share northern lights stories. Staff were friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay The breakfast buffet was... More

We chose this hotel because it had a beach and was away from the lights of Tromso, when we arrived it was well kept, tidy, efficient and clean. The room was fine with 3 single beds, a shower room, fridge and TV. There was enough space to store clothes etc. and we had a view of the bay, which was... More

We spent a few nights in the Sydspissen Hotel and were very pleased with our stay. To be brutally frank accommodation in northern Norway is brutally expensive. For that matter so is everything else. I chose the Sydspissen based on budget constraints, it was the cheapest we could find! No complaints however, the staff were very helpful, the breakfast expansive... More

We had a great 5 day stay in this hotel. It is true it is not in the city centre, but the buses are good and reliable (bus stop is at a two-minute walking, buses passes very 20 minutes until midnight and it is a 15 min ride to city center). The location of the hotel, beside the lake, is... More

This hotel is situated just outside of the town. It is clean and comfortable with lovely warm rooms and an excellent breakfast buffet included in the price. The dining room is open throughout the day for tea and coffee and to warm up food purchased in the town. The staff are friendly and helpful no matter the time of day.... More

We visited Tromso in mid-March. We had stayed in a downtown hotel for a night after we arrived by a Hurtigruten ship. Then we moved to Sydspissen mainly because we heard that it's possible to see the Northern Lights from the hotel room. We asked for a room facing the fjord, and did see a weak display in the second... More
