Stayed here for 3 nights in June. Great small appartment with small kitchenette. Short distance to main street, harbour and several restaurants. Nice and clean! I will not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

We booked through Expedia and thought we were getting a "superior room" for 3. For Europe, the room was large enough, with a kitchenette and nice eating area. The third bed, however, was an uncomfortable rollaway. The view was of an unkempt back alley. Maybe some plants or something could have brightened things up a bit. The Front Desk personnel... More

Tromso is small so all the hotels are central an easy walk to restaurants (opposite) supermarket, port and pedestrian mall area. It offers a free laundry, strong consistent wifi, clean rooms and the one bed apartment has a basic kitchen sufficient to cook if you prefer. Staff are friendly, helpful if you ask a question. Only downsides are it isn't... More

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
