The hotel is basic, a room furnished nicely with a lovely bathroom which is functional not luxurious. Absolutely lovely stay though, the staff were more than helpful, really friendly and couldn't do more for us. The location is a short walk away from the town centre, and it was beautiful to walk through the streets with all the candles and... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights back in July. This is Norway so you can't complain about the price. Although it was summer, it was unusually warm outside at 26 degrees, the room had no air-conditioning or even a fan and therefore was very warm and this affected our ability to sleep. The room was small and the... More

Budget hotel (by Norwegian standards). Basic - the bathroom needed upgrading, for example, and the breakfast wasn't the best I've had but it was OK - but the bed was comfy and the staff were friendly.

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.
