I loved how good and helpful the personnel was and also how late we were allowed to check out without any additional fee. The rooms was basic but served our needs perfectly. Another thing is the breakfast which was great.

Booked as the price was very good and left enough money for the excursions. Room clean although basic, warm with a comfy bed. Hotel staff perfectly friendly and happy to help. Free wifi, basic tv channels that show English language comedy and dramas in the evening and night. Most impressive thing was the outstanding breakfast, so much of it and... More

Was attending a two day conference at this hotel. During the night is was three false firealarms waking up all guests. According to the reception desk this was caused by drunk guests at a nearby bar having fun popping in and setting of the alarm. The reception desks inability to prevent this does not reflect well on their control of... More

Basic room & facilities in this mid range hotel. Beds were comfortable & all seemed clean. Room was on the small side as was the bathroom/shower & there was little storage space.. There was a fridge ( but no minibar) & no coffee/tea making facilities. We particularly liked the bedside lights- two each side of the bed- one specifically for... More

The hotel room was clean and adequate. An underfloor heating in the bathroom made it comfortable to stay there. The receptionists were friendly, helpful and informative. Further, the breakfast buffet provided a well-balanced diet including gluten- and dairy-free nutrition. Coffee and tea were free all day Long. Wi-Fi was free as well and operated undisturbed. Located in central Tromsø, the... More

Recently renamed hotel (from Rica Grand Hotel Tromsø) resulted that we passed the hotel 4 times before we realized it had a new name. Reception is friendly but seem constantly on the phone. Tee, coffee and hot choco is freely available in the lobby. Rooms are good, Noise is reasonable if you keep the windows closed. But heating can't be... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night during my business trip to Tromsø. The location is good, right in the downtown Tromsø, but that's pretty much the best thing about this hotel. The staff were also friendly and did their best, no complain about it. My room was nice and clean, although not too spacious. It was on one... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The location is great with easy transportation to and from the airport via flybuss. Close to restaurants, shopping and pick-up location for tours. Clean rooms, heated bathroom tiles and decent breakfast buffet.

We were in Tromso for 12 nights mainly over Christmas, New Year and also for the Polar Night Half Marathon. We found the Rica Grand perfectly located, comfortable, with lovely helpful staff (particularly Dan Michael in the breakfast buffet) . We thought the breakfasts were delicious, the bed comfortable and the room spacious, clean and well equipped. We loved it.
