The hotel is a couple of kilometres out of town, but it wouldn't take too long to walk and there's free parking available if you have a car. The twin room was pretty big, with armchairs, a coffee table, and a fridge. There's free WiFi as well. The highlight is the setting - the hotel backs onto a path which... More

This is the only place we saw in Tromso where you need a car or bus to get there. There is no dinner facilities there but a supermarket about 5-10 minutes walk away. The hotel has decent rooms (nothing special) with a fridge and mini kitchen (hobs only). Around the hotel is a big beach that is nice to walk... More

I have used Sydspissen several times over the last few years in both summer and winter and always found it to be a great place to stay and relax but since my last stay there have been some changes that will make me reconsider returning. Firstly the dining area used to be open all day to hotel guests giving extra... More

A great place to spend some days near the sea and always with a splendid location to watch the northern lights, and nice walks along the shore, good breakfast service and helpful staff good balance between price/quality. The low point is the noise that can happen on weekends but in the end doesnt bother that much.

We were very pleased with this hotel, an excellent budget option. It's located right by the sea facing away from the lights of the city. We had excellent views of the Aurora from outside the hotel, along by the shore. We hired a car. The airport is just 8km away, and the hotel is an ideal base for exploring the... More

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
