We spent 2 nights here as part of a trip organised by Discover the world. What a lovely hotel!! The room was clean and the bed was great! We had a great view over the bridge & cathedral! The breakfast had the largest selection we have ever seen! We had an evening meal at the Roast restaurant. The meal was... More

This hotel is really good. Reception is really welcoming. Rooms are quiet with a good level of comfort. We had a fantastic view in our room (but the price of the room would explain this...) Breakfast is just amazing : a lots of choice of foods, and everything is fresh and seems to be homemade. The view we had during... More

4 nights. Rooms rather small, but mercifully warm. Fittings and fixtures a little careworn. Breakfasts are a strong point so much so that most of those taking breakfast were commuters on their way to work. Overindulged every day because of the temptations on offer. Right on the harbour and close to everything one might need.

We stayed for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Tromso and the Flybussen (direct bus to and from Tromso Airport) stops right by the hotel. The room we had overlooked the river and was very quite in spite of it being by the side of the water... More

I enjoyed my one day stay in Scandic as it was in a perfect location along the pier and very friendly staff. Breakfast was amazing with lots of varieties. Including gluten free breakfast. Easily accessible rooms and spacious for a standard option. Highly recommended.

Fantastic view from our room to the water. Perfectly located and awesome breakfast. Just two minutes from the spot to take the cruise and walking distance from the center. The service was very good and the room was nice and clean. Highly recommended.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel beginning of 2016. 1.No room service , when you call them they say they are busy! 2.Recepcionists are reluctant to give information, either they do not have a clue of the hotel they are working in, or they are too lazy. 3 Internet connection is the stupidist of all . after trying 5...

We checked in after leaving the Hurtigerten Ship and walked all of the 50m from the port to the Hotel reception, which was very useful (not getting lost is an unknown city). Our Travel Agent in the UK booked us a superior room, but we realised this did not offer tea /coffee facilities. We asked at reception during check-in for... More

A very good location right on the the harbour and next to the shops and main attractions. The airport bus stops right outside (NK 900 one way). The breakfast is excellent with huge choice. The bedrooms are looking like they could do with a bit of TLC.
