I like that it is out of town because it makes photographing the aurora borealis easier because they aren't polluted with city lights. The hotel is owned my the military so I know my money is going to a good cause. They were on leave the last time I was there so it got a bit noisy but the hotel... More

This hotel is out of town but easily accessible by Bus (34). It doesn't do evening food but has good continental breakfast. It's selling point is its location on the fjord. We had beautiful walks, beautiful views of Snowy Mountains, a fabulous fjord and top it all we had the Northern Lights. Staff were very helpful throughout our stay.

Booked Sydspissen Hotel for its quiet location, a bit of distance from town. But local bus is easy enough, just have to pay attention to their frequency. The back of the hotel has stunning scenery. We were so so lucky that it suddenly snowed the night we were there, it was supposed to snow one month later. And the green... More

Sydspissen is outside of the main part of Tromso, but easily accessed by the local bus line (bus route 34, I believe) if you don't have a rental car. Being near the end of the island where Tromso is located keeps this hotel quiet and restful, and also has beautiful views of the water and mountains! Breakfast is classic Norwegian... More

This budget hotel is on the southern tip of Tromso island and is owned by the Norwegian army whose members/families get priority booking.Its surrounding is somehow wild but its breakfast room has a stunning view of the fjord and mountains.There is a bus stop nearby and a COOP supermarket within 5 minutes walk. Staff is polite,helpful and speak good english.... More

Very happy with our stay here. Beautiful location near the water with views to the mountains. Good breakfast and free tea and coffee all day was a welcome extra. Pleasant dining, lobby and outdoor deck area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room clean and spacious, comfy bed. Couldn't ask for any more from a budget hotel.

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
