The hotel was everything you could want for a 3 night stay. It was clean and warm and we had room service each morning. The staff were all extremely pleasant and polite and nothing was too much for them. There was a small fridge and a big flat screen television. I would definitely come back again.

Really enjoyed my 3 nights at this hotel. Room is quite spacious for what can be considered a budget hotel. The room itself is clean and simple but more than adequate, notably with the big flat TV and small fridge. Heating works nicely. Breakfast was good in terms of variety, and great in taste. Really loved the atmosphere of the... More

We stayed three nights at this hotel and we were very satisfied. Thon Polar is a budget hotel so the rooms are simple and there are no frills. However, the rooms were more than adequate in size and the heating was excellent. The icing on the cake for this hotel though is the superb breakfast served at the restaurant next... More

I'm not sure how big hotel rooms in Norway are, but compared to the hotel rooms in London, this was more than adequate for my needs. The rooms to the door all open outward, giving an impression of a cubbyhole. Toilet was spotless and well-lighted, and the water pressure good. Breakfast was included in the rate, and the booking was... More

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend break. Perfect location set in the heart of town. Rooms perfect size for a couple to just use as a base to stay while investigating and exploring the area. Beds comfortable and room clean only down side is no kettle for making coffee or tea in room. Although they do... More

This is an older hotel that has been completely rehabbed and has reliable heating, plumbing and electric. The rooms are typically small, but furnishings are newer. The rates are comparatively low. The hotel has no lobby seating, and no public seating at all except at the attached Egon's restaurant. When the restaurant is crowded, you have nowhere to go but... More

Rooms were ok but this hotel seems to be a party-hotel and we had serious troubles to get our kids to sleep. The hotel-staff seemed totally unprepared for the parties going on in the hotel and the security company had to come twice for the same party. Eventually they did only kick-out the party guests, not the hosts, so when... More

This place is perfect for the budget traveller. Small room, looks like a little Ikea dorm room, but modern and clean. The free breakfast buffet though, that is where it's at!!! Tons of options, all you can eat. Given how expensive Norway is, the free breakfast is a great value. Perfect location in the middle of city center. If you... More

This hotel was perfect for what we were after on our short trip in Tromso. Friendly staff, clean modern room, good value (relative to other tromso hotels...), but the best bit is that it's next to a really nice relaxed pub/ restaurant that provide breakfast included in the price. They serve until 11 so no rush, and it's a really... More
