We stayed in an apartment for four nights. The apartment was clean, modern and functional and a decent price considering it's great central location, and how expensive everything else is in Tromso! Our apartment overlooked the main road and unfortunately it is noisy and there is traffic most of the night so didn't sleep really well, as a light sleeper.... More

Stayed during 24-27/Jan, 15. It's a warm, cosy stay. I stayed in a single room. Being a residency, it has the basic kitchen facilities. It's at 2 minute walk from the Airport Bus Stand. The room is small in size but cosy enough. The receptionist was great and we had a coffee chat while waiting for the room to be... More

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.

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.

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.
