I couldn't recommend this place highly enough! Really helpful and kind staff who managed to help out with any help needed. The location is situated in the heart of Tromso so ideal for any trips out planned in the area. The room included everything we needed and the of a kitchen was very handy!

End of March may not have been the best time for a visit with no fjord trips available and Northern Lights off the radar but it's still a special view from the top of the cable car.

A very comfortable room, it has a good size, and the very best of all was that it has a little kitchen inside. This kitchen ought to the high prizes of every meal in Tromso was very useful for us. Good beds. The only dissapointment was that there isn´t a daily cleaning service, you have to change your own towels... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the City Living Apartments in Tromso, Norway. We took the bus from the airport and it deposited us just down the street (3 minute walk). We were given a quick check in by Anette, and we found our apartment all ready and waiting for us. It was very cosy and had window looking over... More

City Living Hotel is a great place in Tromso. We stayed 2 nights in March for a Northern Lights excursion and were very pleased with our choice. Robert at the front desk was great, very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are more like efficiency apartments with a stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge, etc. There are 2 grocery stores within a couple... More

Friendly staff and very central place close to the center. Nice room with my own kitchen. The best thing was that I was not disturbed either by the cleaning or the traffic or other guests. Surely I would stay there again. Maybe in the summertime.

The hotel is in the center of tromso. The room and the bathroom were clean. The kitchen is usefull. The supermarket requires 3 minutes walk. Only 2 drawbacks : some furniture were broken and the street is a little bit noisy. Whatever those minor issue, we got good value for money.

I would absolutely recommend having a flat here. Advantages: good price, in the citycenter of Tromso, 3 minutes from the tourism office and Hurtigruten, quiet room at the back with possibilities to cook and a supermarket next door, secured access with code card even in the lift, kind help at the reception!

One of the greatest expenses to visiting (and living for that matter) in Norway is eating. City Living Hotel offers the opportunity to prepare simple food from stores only blocks away and so make visiting Norway possible.
