“Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Wery nice hotell, with outstanding service. Breakfast is very nice. We enjoyed a doubleroom from friday to saturday. Located in the center of Tromsø. Many nice places to enjoy a good dinner in the near of the hotel. If you like a night out, Tromsø is well known for the nightlife.

This hotel was excellent and meet all my requirements, very friendly staff, easy check in, great food and bar.
Its in a great location in the middle of town ( not that Tromso is a big place), the bedrooms are not massive but are very modern and clean and very well equipped, what more do you want.
Food was excellent and really friendly staff, could not fault it and will return here one day.
Have to stay I was very impressed with Tromso, never on my list of places to go but would recommend that you go for a weekend and see what it has to offer,you will be suprised.
Picture postcard stuff.

Stayed here for one night only as part of a driving road trip up the coast. Found the hotel welcoming and friendly, the room was good and the breakfast very good too. Convenient central location for exploration on foot.

The Grand is situated in the middle of Central Tromsø, at the south end of the bustling Storgata. Rooms are newly refurbished with modern interiors, including flat screen TVs. The bathroom was spacious, and clean with fresh white tiles. Wifi coverage in rooms (included) was decent. Breakfast is average for Norwegian hotels, with a plus for freshly made smoothies. Lobby and restaurant shows signs of wear. The hotel bar is in the adjoining Gründer night club

Really good beds, good breakfast and the bar downstairs has really good drinks. The hotel is very central so it is a very good basis for discovering Tromsø.
The rooms could have been bigger, but at the same time, they are not too small, and bigger room would probably have been even more costly.

While simple, this hotel was clean, modern, and very centrally located. While it may seem pricey in comparison to other cities, for Norway this was very reasonably priced AND included a very full and delicious breakfast. They even had gluten free and lactose free options available. The front desk staff was great with answering all of our questions. They offer free coffee and tea all day and will even pack you a thermos to take out at night if you are off to chase the Northern Lights. I definitely would stay here again.

I got a room at 6th floor. From the window I looked to the buildings in the street in back of the hotel. My room was nice and renovated.
The hotel is situated in a good position of town. The breakfast is always good and plenty. The standard of the romms seem to be lifted sinc I styed in this hotel in august 2012.
