The situation of the hotel is very good. Basic things are alright, but there are some small disadvantages: not so good air in the room and the bathroom (smell of cigarette), no hotel's parking hall or area, no fitness room... Breakfast was very good and versatile.

Room we stayed in was fantastic. Huge and plushy decorated in a modern style with great art and a nespresso machine. And best of all views across the harbour, snowy mountains and the town. Free help-your-self cafe at the lobby. The communal areas were nice. Breakfast was OK. There was a luggage room you needed to hunt around for yourself... More

Right in the city center, with short walk to sights, buses and restaurants. Great service, making you feel like home. The breakfast is to die for with a great selection of traditional continental breakfast, but also hot dishes, great veggie options, a dessert bar, nuts and fruit bar and local homemade dishes for breakfast. The rooms are spacious, with a... More

The hotel is conveniently placed on the main street in Tromsø, with easy access to all downtown sights and restaurants. The staff was very friendly. The hotel itself seemed pretty run down with one elevator hardly working and a smell of sigarette smoke in the lobby. The room was very dusty and the floor of the room very run down.... More

I love the SCANDIC Grand Tromsø. It's right in the center of town, two supermarkets around the corner, shopping malls just down the road and the main pedestrian walk & harbour is real close. Most rooms have some kind of a view of this great city. The staff make you welcome from the first minute and give you great suggestions... More

We stayed here while doing the Northern Lights tour and the central location was in walking distance of everything, although Tromso is very small anyway. Just opposite lovely restaurants such a Biffhuset and Skarven and a short walk to the local supermarket. The Hotel first impression was from the moment we walked in welcoming, the reception staff were exceptional, very... More

The hotels location was excellent, right in the centre of Tromso. Great hospitality and very friendly, helpful staff. The room was very clean and modern. Breakfast buffer was great and even allowed for taking extra food to keep as lunch later in the day. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Tromso.
