We were looking for a nice, affordable place in Tromso and Bed&Books did meet up to our expectations. We stayed both in Fisherman's Home (Strandvegen 84) and Writer's home (Strandvegen 45) and these are actually quite different in quality. Fisherman's home has a beautiful view over the fjord but is also a bit run-down. Writer's home at the other hand was nicely decorated and much cleaner. Both places are really thin-walled so if you're a light sleeper (like me), bring earplugs! The best feature for us was the fact that there is a well equipped kitchen so you can do your own cooking and save a lot of money that way. I also loved the big breakfast table at Writer's home and the reading room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At Tromsø Bed & Books you are staying at home, while being away from home. We are NOT a regular hotel, B&B or hostel. We are a Bed and Breakfast WITHOUT the breakfast, we are an ever changing community of tourists, or simply: a house with bedrooms. But more than that, we are a home. Your home - in Tromsø. ... more less
