When booking our accommodation we were warned about the high prices of food and drink in Norway so went for this option as every apartment has its own kitchen area. And we couldn't have picked a better place!
Booked a junior suite with a separate sleeping area and a very comfortable double sofa bed in the living room. Kitchen has electric cooker and 4 hobs, dishwasher, just enough utensils and crockery and a good sized fridge. Bathroom has a great shower, hair dryer fixed to the wall and plenty of storage space. Lounge area has a table and four comfy chairs, lots of room, double sofa bed, separate comfy chair, lamps, two superb heaters and huge windows offering superb views of the mountains from our room. Enough wardrobe space and hangers for coats, etc., too. Separate bedroom has a double bed too.
Second floor of the holding has spare towels, sheets, tea and coffee which are all free for you to take as and when you fancy, can't say fairer than that!
We were allowed into our apartment two hours early free of charge too, superb service on top of a very warm welcome.
Staff are great, so helpful and friendly and there for you at all times when reception is open. Location is superb, just behind the Main Street with all the cafes, etc., and less than 3 minutes to the harbour. All main attractions are a stones throw away in fact.
We've already found three supermarkets near the building, the closest just 2 minutes walk to he left of us and we've paid just 70 pounds in total to last us both for our entire stay (4 nights and 5 days) so you can't go wrong and if you look carefully at the prices in the supermarkets you can get some great deals!
Flew with norwegian.com, direct from gatwick, and were so impressed with everything about the airline. In total we've paid 800 pound for two people including flights with prebooked seats and luggage and our accommodation at city living hotel so you can't go wrong!
If you'd like any information on what to do, how to get from the airport to the hotel, which tours to go on for the northern lights, which buses to take to get to the cable car, etc., please don't hesitate to get in touch and I'll help you book your visit here on a budget without having to compromise on comfort.
Hope this review has helped you! To summarise, I 100% recommend the city living hotel for a superb stay and cannot thank the staff enough for everything! We're here for another two nights and are so happy we chose to come here! Thank you!
