I spent three nights here recently. It was a great experience and I'd come back for sure on my next trip to Tromsø. The staff are great and it was a quiet place to unwind in between day hikes and walks into the center. It wasn't too far to walk into the center of town and there's a convenience store... More

I went there to run tromso marathon. It's well maintained and the decoration is good. The room is slightly small but good enough for one person. The reception is warm. It's a bit far away from the center, this is a bit opposite to the website's suggestion. I find it's a bit pricey. I paid more than 100 USD per... More

The staff are super friendly, welcoming and helpful with authentic hospitality. They are unobtrusive yet responsive. You can feel at home here. It's cozy, quiet and quaint. It all depends on what you want from accommodation. I would say this is a peaceful place away from typical tourist centres. This is one of my favourite places of all my travels.

As cute as it gets, people are charming. Really one to recommend. I'm going through Tromsø again in a few days and have booked it there again. It felt a bit weird thinking I would meet no one the day I arrived because I was after the office hours but it was completely ok. Walk in and you feel at... More

We asked for the room with a balcony. One night I woke my partner to show her the strongest display of the northern lights we had seen. We stayed at the Fishermans hut, the views as I said I were amazing, but also out the back you can see the bay and views of Tromsø. The place has a bit... More

Bed and Books is convenient and good value accommodation. There are two houses in Tromsø - we stayed at Fisherman's Hut. I don't know the other one or quality of it. There are four rooms with shared bathrooms. The showers are small and open to the larger bathroom - think dormitory. Over two nights and three days we never saw... More

I stayed at the Writer's home for two nights and the Fisherman's home for one night in order to get a taste for each. This is the best advice I can offer. Writer's Home: The Writer's Home is about a five-minute walk from the Fisherman's Home but has a more "urban feel." The rooms have been updated more recently and... More

My friend and I stayed here in June 2013 and had a great time. We stayed for 2 nights in the Writers House in the downstairs bedroom. We had no problems checking in and was greeted by Idunn who was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the bed was like a cloud. We made use... More
