Tromsø is a snappy town and this hotel is right in the middle of everything. Rooms are nice but lack both minibar and safe. Two major mistakes if you ask me. The restaurant serves descent food and the skybar has a nice view.

The best hotel breakfast ever. Ever our 6 year old made the same comment. Huge selection and well prepared. Nice mini-suite on the 7th floor with great views. Staff, as usual in Norway, speak flawless English, even here past the arctic circle. Recommended!

This hotel is quite normal scandinavian hotel, but I have never seen such amazing breakfast. Wide selection of Everything and good ones. Location is exellent, close to everything. Only bad thing was that we stayed in a room which was non smoking room but it smelled of cigarette smoke. I suppose that this room was selected for us because we... More

On my way up north, I had to stay at Scandic Ishavshotel for one night before embarking on a trip with hurtigruten the following day. Upon arriving, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Her politeness and kindness made up for a horrible day of travelling. I believe her name was Siv. She gave me a room on the 4th... More

GOTO ROAST RESTAURANT. I stayed here for 2 nights, 26-28 of July. I would like to start by saying that you should promote Øyvind as he genuinely changed 3 to a 5, and you should definitely pay the ROAST manager more, along with the boys in the kitchen. I called before hand for a special room request, knowing that floor... More

Great modern hotel with magnificient view to ocean in the rooms. There is various selection of fish, cheese and fruit on breakfast. If you are moving by car, there is limited parking lots, which are chargeable. A couple of blocks from the hotel there is parking cave and open place for cars, which also are chargeable.

We stayed here twice already (and are going to stay there again for a couple of nights) during our trip to Norway. Quick check in and check out, very nice, smiling and helpful front desk staff. The room was exactly what we expected, modern, clean, with all the amenities. On our first 2-day stay the extra bed for my daughter... More

I flew into Tromso to catch the Hurtigruten boat with my girlfriend, who had recently broken her foot and was on crutches. Even though we were not guests of the hotel, the staff allowed us to store our luggage at the hotel until the boat arrived and, even more amazingly, lent us their wheelchair, so my girlfriend and I could...
