This hotel was wonderful. The staff were caring and helpful. The adjacent Egon Restaurant was a great blessing, especially when many other venues were closed on a Sunday. It was very centrally located, within easy walking distance of all of Tromso's major attractions. I would definitely stay there again!

Budget for Norway, anyway. I stayed here for a few days on a bucket-list trip to see the midnight sun, and it was quite satisfactory. Room was a bit spartan, but everything worked fine, wifi was free. Breakfast was also free in the adjacent restaurant, and this was a big plus, given Norway prices: the selection was quite extensive, Staff... More

Our door didn't lock, I think the place was undergoing renovations. Very expensive for what you get, but there aren't very many choices in Tromsø. Staff was friendly and breakfast was decent. Room was small, no iron and board. Trip Advisor wants 200 characters.

We booked this hotel without realizing that this was a budget hotel. The rooms were basic, but good enough and very clean. The location is in the old town of Tromso and lots of places are within walking distance. There is no air conditioning in the room. Breakfast is served in the Egon restaurant and it was ample with very... More

The hotel is centrally located and just a few minutes walk from the airport bus stop. The rooms are a little tired but still comfortable. As we were there in the middle of summer, it was daylight all the time and the curtains weren't very thick so the room was quite light at night. It also got a little stuffy... More

Friendly staff and very comfortable room. I arrived after a day long bus journey from Fauske and had no problem checking in at 9pm without any prior booking. Breakfast was good. Only complaint would be the noise from the street outside. Maybe Tromsø is a party town but this was midweek and there were a lot of motorbikes.

Aside from having all possible amenities and comforts, the one thing that amazed me the most was the ecological focus of the hotel: you need to insert your card key into a main switch inside the room in order for the room to have electricity, excluding the TV, which is absolutely awesome and appropriate. We stayed in late June and... More

I stayed at Polar for two nights and had an enjoyable stay. The beds were really good and the breakfast was even better. The room was quite small, but as I was travelling alone it was big enough. I would not mind to stay here another time.
