We have stayed here for 5 nights. Very convenience location. Just locate exact in the middle of the city. Very close to the tourist information centre and where the local tours pick up points and walking distance to some museum and supermarkets. Good environment and cooking facilities. Staff are friendly.

Why spend so much money in dining out especially in Norway. City Living is located at the city centre and walking distance to Kiwi or Coop where you can get affordable ingredients to whip out your meal. The room itself is a bit old but it is still decent.

This is a perfect place to stay in Tromso, if like me, you are working and do not want to eat out every night. Clean and comfortable with full kitchen facilities and incredibly helpful and caring staff. And did I mention affordable?? Highly recommend.

The first room we were given was cold (ground floor) and looked out onto another building. The curtains were stained and it was very dated. After asking to be moved (and being told it was not possible with lots of huffing and puffing )I was finally given a room on the top floor which was much less banged up and... More

We stayed in a junior suite. The bedroom is incredibly small. Otherwise everything was good enough. I am surprised that there is still no sugar or milk! Check in man was helpful. Appreciated access to clean towels and loo paper. A good safe place to say but very basic. Clean ♡

The room was spacious, quiet, fully equiped and adjustable to one's various needs - sleeping well, cooking, spending time inside etc. The amazing Tromso outdoor experiences can be quite exhausting and each evening we were happy to return to our room for rest and further preparation. Breakfast at Egon's across the road is a good deal and a great morning... More

We stayed in City Living for 3 nights for its self cook facility and its value for money price for the unit. Eating out is really expensive. Location is good, it is very near to Avis to pick up our rental car and Ergo restaurant for good food (we went there twice). Nearby there is a shopping mall that has... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way north and booked a different hotel on our return journey but we wished we had booked in to City Living apartments again because it provided everything we needed. The apartment was clean, warm and quiet and the kitchen facilities were excellent. Great central location. We will definitely return.

Stayed overnight in Tromso after disembarking from a cruise ship. This was a good choice for us as it was quite an easy walk from the Hurtigruten pier. The staff was friendly and we were able to leave our luggage in their office the day before while we went off to a husky camp. Do note that the reception is... More

It is just located at the back of the main roads. Very easy to find and convenient. Room is clean and spacious. The only down point was that no oil, pepper or salt were provided for the kitchenette. Otherwise, all basic stuff are there. Staff was also helpful in providing directions. Highly recommended.
