We ended our boat journey up the coast of Norway in Tromso on midsummer's eve. As Tromso is above the arctic circle the midnight sun is at its best. Fortunately we booked a great little hotel/apartment with black out curtains! We were upgraded to a top floor roomy apartment with a full kitchen and large windows looking over the neighborhood...

The staffs were very friendly and helpful, the apartment is really near to all the major locations in Tromsø. Free wifi. Room was clean very big but there is no house-keeping because it's an apartment. I have issue of throwing my food and garbage.

People were so hospitable! They helped us navigate the bus routes and anything else we needed. We saw the northern lights 6 out of 11 nights! If you want to stay close to the hotel, go to the cable car to see the lights. It was worth the fee and they have food and drinks😊

The hotel is very close to the city center and the Fine Arts museum, and within a walking distance from the pier where Hurtigruten docks and from Polaria. The airport bus stops nearby. Our room was very spacious, with a sitting room area and a small kitchen corner good enough to cook one's breakfast. Furnishing was nice, room and bathroom... More

The room was clean, the location was convenient, and the staff were kind and helpful during the hours the front desk was manned, which is 10am to midnight. There's not much to say about it because it's straightforward: a clean room, a kitchenette, and a standard price for Tromso (which is expensive for anywhere else).

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.
