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

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
