Tromso has been been the best holiday we've ever had and City Living the best hotel apartments we've ever stayed in. Definitely a home away from home with perfect apartment, lovely staff and right in the heart of a charming city.

I lived in Tromso for four months, and stayed at the City Living Hotel--I loved it! So homey, and the staff, both front desk and housekeeping, is kind, friendly and responsive. The suite I stayed in was small but clean and comfortable for all my needs. The location is so central, and just steps away to the various shops for... More

Convenient location, walking distance from main shopping area and restaurants. There is a supermarket a stone's throw away. Although breakfast was not included, you'd get discounted breakfast at a restaurant down the road if you show them your key card. Alternatively, in the room there is a kitchenette equipped with everything you need to whip up a quick snack or... More

No fuss, easy-in, easy-out place to stay in Tromso. We had been debating staying at a hotel down by the water or this apartment-style accommodation and were so glad we chose City Living. Clean, well-appointed apartment. Wi-fi worked fine for us. The front desk was super helpful and helped us book a tour after doing the legwork and really trying... More

It's hard to give an overall rating. We had a great corner fourth floor apartment. A bedroom and a living room with kitchen. Immaculately clean. Price was right The furniture and bed very comfortable. We didn't cook but the kitchen was quite adequately outfitted for those who want to do so. The bathroom was up to date, clean and not... More

All was fine, Kitchen could be better equipped. There should be a coffee maker and a toaster as standard inclusions in every room. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Free laundry facilities were very welcome.

Helpful staff, great room and amenities, service, and location. Supermarket one block away. But ridiculously slow WiFi. Complete all critical time-sensitive online tasks before arriving. I was also unable to darken room in July which affected my sleep cycle. I was told better blackout blinds/drapes are coming. Otherwise, except for the WiFi and daylight in the room all 'night' long,... More
