Have just returned from a three night stay here, the hotel is in a great location, just by the airport bus stop and the Radisson Blu (for tour pick ups). It is spacious, clean and functional. Very close to the main streets and good view of the water. I'd rate it as a 3.5 star but unfortunately can't do half... More

We stayed for 4 nights in early February, and very much enjoyed our visit. The hotel is busy with conferences, which gives a different atmosphere to a holiday hotel. There is nothing I can complain about - it is a good solid hotel, but not luxurious. The wardrobe is tiny with virtually no drawer space - for example, the bedside... More

The airport bus dropped us right outside the door - a great start! We were too early to check in to our rooms, but our bags were taken to a locked luggage room by reception which we went out for lunch. Our rooms were extremely comfortable (a little smaller than we were used to, but we found this to be... More

We stayed here twice, both at the start and the end of our Hurtigruten trip, and we loved it. The hotel couldn't be better located for Hurtigruten passengers, as the ships dock about 50m from the hotel front door. We spent our first very comfortable night staying in the hotel in a room overlooking the fjord; the room was warm,... More

Dear TravellingHappily. Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experiences on Tripadvisor! It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your visit both times, even if the room second time could have been more quiet. We take great pride in our breakfast buffet, so I am happy to hear that it was satisfying. Thank you again for... More

Unfortunately we arrived when the restaurant was 'busy' (one waitress, 8 covers!) and we were curtly asked to wait for half an hour. Not a good start but after a bit of diplomatic complaining the situation was well recovered by the restaurant manager. Like the Radisson Blu across the street this place smacks of being a tour group factory, so... More

Dear WorldwideWebster. I am sorry to hear that the beginning of your stay got to a bad start, however I am glad that our staff was able to make the situation better!

Very good breakfast spread. They have a Barista making real coffee. Makes a real difference when you are so tired from chasing the northern lights the night before. Rooms are functional but the given price I am paying, it is value for money.

I don’t normally give five stars rating as however good an establishment is there is always room for improvement. I was impressed by this hotel and its staff. It’s centrally located at the harbour side with a lovely view across the fjord. When we checked it, we were automatically upgraded to a suite. It was very spacious, with a separate... More

Located on the waterfront with good views of the harbour. Direct bus from and to airport door to door (public bus not run by hotel) saves the expense of a taxi. Spent 4 nights here on our Northern Lights adventure. The room was spacious and comfortable. Decent size bed and warm rooms. The buffet breakfast was quite extensive and had... More

Unfortunately I was leaving on a cruise from Tromsø and was only here for a night. I would have loved to stay longer in the city and at this hotel. First off the hotel's location is perfect, it's right on the pier where the Hurtingruten ships all depart from. It's near the center of town and everything is an easy... More
