We have recently spent four nights at your lovely hotel. Our room was really comfortable and clean and had a beautiful view over the quieter part of the harbour. We were impressed by the energy saving credentials, and were quite happy to use our towels more than once (our choice) in order to help save the planet. Our meals were... More

When we recently visited Tromsø to experience the Nortern Lights, Aurora Borealis - we had a wonderful experience at Scandic Ishavshotel! The hotel is situated bayside on the quai of Tromsø just a few feet from the sea with spectacular views to the beautiful Tromsø surroundings. The airport express shuttle stops right outside the main entrance so you can literally... More

We were given an amazing room on the 7th floor of the hotel, panoramic windows allowed us to experience the amazing Northern Lights one night when we came back to the hotel from dinner in the city! The hotel seems brand new, and the location is by the harbour just few meters from the waterfront and at the same time... More

Good hotel with very good location in the middle of Tromsø city. Walking distance to most restaurants and shops within 4-5 minutes. It has a nice view to the mountain Fløya and you can see the Ishavs cathedral. The rooms are spacious and clean.

The hotel is very modern, but the rooms are very small, so are the bathrooms. There was a fridge but no mini bar, strange for a hotel of this price and category. The dining room was more like a conference hall which was essentially the same hall as the lobby. Rather utilitarian and lacking in any home charms. A bar... More

I visited the Rica in January, when they were in mid-construction. The hotel managed the construction phase terribly and I was reluctant to return. But someone else booked me into the hotel. The construction work is finished and the hotel is back in good shape. The views from the hotel rooms and common areas are work class. The breakfast buffet... More

I stayed one night at Rica Ishavshotel. The location could hardly be any better, you are right in center and right at the water with this lovely view over the fjord and mountains. Also from my room I could see the bay, the bridge and the Arctic Church, but the windows were really dirty which spoiled the view a litle.... More

Really liked the position (on the waterside and very central) It's a nice modern hotel and the rooms were fresh, comfortable and well laid out. I don't remember being warned the hotel was being renovated when I booked. I paid for a Superior Room with a view of the water. This side of the hotel was covered in scaffolding and... More
