The hotel is just off the main shopping street and close to the nightlife. Beware beer prices in Tromso are really expensive. Reception is friendly and efficient. The rooms are small and basic but spotlessly clean. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room but there is a free drinks machine in reception. Breakfast is in the... More

Came off the MS Finnmarken (Hurtigruten) ship and walked ten mins to the hotel through the snow. Although I had asked for a room with a bath the didn't have one but the upgraded us to the 9th (top) floor with great views in a large clean room. Very central to the town. Must go to a cafe called Knull... More

It's my second time in a Thon hotel, after our visit to Alta three years before, and when I saw the availability of this hotel I didn't look for anymore, because the relation between quality and price is very high. The hotel is located in a privilege location, is very comfortable and clean, the staff is very friendly and the... More

Stayed here in March as part of a large group and had a great experience. Thon Hotel Polar is basically a 3 star with good clean accommodation. The receptionist is very helpful and there is a bar/restaurant attached (Egon) which is always crowded. Experience was great.

Frustrated with over-priced Tromso hotels I settled on this budget (er, relatively speaking) one and wasn't disapointed. Yes, there were cheaper ones if one were prepared for that frightening phrase SHARE BATHROOM. Aaarrrggghhhh. Hello, this is 2014, those two words are so last century and should be a) only considered by low expectation smelly backpackers travelling on the cheap or... More

This is a great hotel if you want a cheaper option to stay. Room was small but had everything you need. Tv, clean bathroom, bed & pillows comfy. The breakfast and restaurant generally was exceptionally good. Would recommend. Tromso city was also a great place, people really friendly and scenery lovely. MUST VISIT.

Ok hotel not very clean the bathroom really smelt but it didn't matter too much as we didn't spend much time there are we were so busy seeing the sights. I was surprised at the amazing breakfast. Lots of really interesting places to visit and eat. Tromso was probably my most favourite place in Norway!

Very convenient location in the centre of Tromso. Classed as a budget hotel so don't expect any frills. Our room on the 6th floor was quiet, clean, comfortable and the shower was excellent. Had two twin beds, which we pushed together, and a separate sitting room area. If I had to be picky I would have liked to see some... More
