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...

Located by the seaside where Hurtigruten boats stop and they offer free luggage storage for Hurtigruten passangers. Airport bus stops nearby and all the attractions are within walking distance. Nice lobby area and restaurant.

We stayed one night here in a junior suite. The room was fairly compact and was on two levels. When you walked into the room there was a desk area, a very small bathroom and some wardrobe space. On the lower level there was a sitting area and a separate bedroom. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped for... More

We stayed here on our final night before catching a very early flight. We were sad to miss the wonderful-sounding breakfast, had to book a box the night before, which had a ham and cheese sandwich in it. Did the job, but... Reception staff were very nice and extremely helpful. Our room was very small, probably the smallest room we... More

We spent three nights in Ishavshotel, one on our first day in Tromso and two in the end of our trip so we stayed in two different rooms. Both were very neat and nice and quiet. The view isn't exactly as spectacular as they say but it is nice enough (and in Tromso & surrounding areas the views are always... More

Been staying at this hotel for years now and it is excellent. Rooms offer amazing views towards the water, very breathtaking. The breakfast is top notch, best hotel breakfast. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world to visit and staying at the Ishavshotel makes the stay a most enjoyable one. Front staff extremely helpful and attentive.

Great location for Hurtigruten, other than that reasonably old and outdated hotel with very small rooms. Unless you are using this as a transit hotel for Hurtigruten there are probably better and more modern options available in Tromsø.Pleasant staff, but that about it.

Dear EKnive. Thank you very much for your review and thoughts after your stay! With our great location on the harbour site, we do agree that some of our rooms are in need of an update.
