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

We stayed overnight at the Sydspissen Hotel hoping for the Northern Lights. The hotel is located on the outskirts of town and requires one to catch a bus to get to it. The room itself is a little rundown and basic but has an amazing view of the seafront. The breakfast buffet is continental style and has a good choice,... More

Hotel similar to a Premier Inn (UK). Our room was large, 3 beds, a couple of chairs and tables, flat screen TV. A good walk in shower. Reception is 24 hours with helpful staff, free hot drinks from the breakfast drinks machine, excellent benefit as Norway is expensive, approximately 3x more expensive.Breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice cereals, breads,...

Seeing the northern lights was a long term goal achieved after a seven night stay in the Sydspissen Hotel. I had stayed in Iceland for seven nights and went on three bus trips chasing the northern lights without success a couple of years ago. The information I seen on Tripadvisor from tourists helped me decide on visiting Tromso and staying... More
