Everybody knows that Norway is a very expensive country. The little kitchen in the room is a very good way to save some money. There is a supermarket nearby and you can walk to most of the city atractions.

Don't be put off by the exterior. Nice sized modern apartment with all you need for an extended stay. Convenient location. Pavement outside reception was like an ice rink and we slipped, would recommend the management clear a safe passage to their door. Other than that an excellent stay.

Just the facts! Good downtown location, within 1 - 10 minutes walking distance to Polaria, museums, shops, restaurants, grocery, seafront, tours, and the flybuss (1 block walk and 12 minute ride to airport). Is one block off of "Main" Street so sidewalks may not be clear - bring your shoe grippers or can buy in any shoe store in town.... More

I spent five nights at City Living. It is self catering, which was best for me. Unfortunately, in the single rooms, there are no ovens. You do have two hobs, a fridge and the pots and pans and cutlery are quite adequate. It's location is ideal, although there are a lot of hotels in a confined space. But you are... More

These apartments are ideal for exploring Tromso. Although Tromso is small, the hotel is located near the shops and the seafront making the location perfect. They are also beneficial as they can offer a relatively inexpensive way to spend the week, as each is equipt with its own kitchenette, food can bought in the local shop and prepped in the... More

the apartments provide a good and relatively inexpensive base from which to explore Tromso and the surroundings. The rooms are big enough to add an extra bed or two (which can be hired). The kitchen area has hob, oven, fridge, and dishwasher so you can provide your own breakfast and other meals to save lots of money on local restaurants.... More
