This is a small, well maintained hotel a short bus ride from Tromso (20 mins, 34 bus, 50 NOK). A taxi from the airport was just under 300 NOK. There is free parking and Wi-Fi. It is located at the southern tip of Tromsoya, the main island on which Tromso is situated. There is a good cold buffet breakfast offering... 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

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.
