3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Rooms not planned for stays longer than a couple of days(no storage for clothing). Excellent breakfast, well functioning wifi @ no extra cost. An excellent location in the city center, close to restaurants, shops and musea. No sauna nor gym, most hotel visitors seem to stay for only 1 or 2 nights.

10 mins from the airport but in the centre this is s great hotel to stay in. Had a fixed dinner menu as we are part of a group but the food was excellent! Breakfast is really good and the ship in the lobby provides free tea and coffee. A great choice! View from our room.

Very well situated near the centre of Tromso. Rooms are a little 'tired' however beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent. The bar attached to the hotel and accessible via reception is run separately so don't make the mistake of buying a drink pre-dinner expecting to be able to take it in to the dining room. Recently been taken... More

We arrived after midnight on Jan 21 because our flight from Oslo was delayed. The man at reception was very nice and helpful. He asked if we were on our honeymoon (I think there was a note in their system because when we booked the room, we did it directly through the hotel and told them it was our 5... More

This hotel is centrally located, and the rooms are ok. The breakfast was very good. There is a nightclub on the ground floor, and it was very noisy until 4 am both nights. Had trouble sleeping even with earplugs.

We stayed as this hotel for 6 nights. It is centrally situated and within easy walking distance to the harbour, city centre and public transport links (also to the airport). The staff is always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is generous but its the same boring things every day! I was amazed that they made no effort to make breakfast on... More

This hotel is centrally located. If you are song lots of tips like we were it is within walking distance of all pickup spots. Lots of ships and supermarkets around. The room is smallish but clean and modern. The beds were comfortable and warm. The service is not great. All the staff we came in contact with didn't really seem... More
