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.

Great hospitality and great staff. Plus the food was great and very tasty. Were upgraded as they had trouble finding my booking. Clean room and loved the tub in the bathroom. Will for sure come back to stay.

Stay away unless you smoke. Old rooms that smells from old smoke. My clothes smells after being in the room for an hour. This hotel is worn down and need a remake. Friendly staff and OK food does not make up for the crapy rooms.

Great breakfast buffet. Cafè and bar on site. Two nice outdoor balconies for smokers. The Scandic Grand Hotel is very clean. My bedroom had wooden floor,no carpet, very nice. The hotel entrance is not so good (but possible!) for disabled. To enter the hotel you have to either walk some stairs or make the front desk unlock a side door.... More

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
