We came to Tromso for some of us to take part in the Midnight Sun half marathon. The Smart hotel was the cheapest we could find. It is great. I really don't understand what previous reviewers are complaining about, this hotel never pretends to be anything other than what it is. Yes the rooms are small but they have everything you need. The beds are really comfortable and there are really good black out curtains to keep out the midnight sun. Showers are great and the tv's have programmes to please just about everyone.
Breakfast at around £9.50 each is very good value considering prices in Norway (everything is SO expensive to british tourists). The only gripe I have is that they say breakfast is served until 10 am but once certain items got used up they weren't replaced even though there was half an hour or more of breakfast service left, so the choice became a bit sparse, that was disappointing.
Staff were great and very helpful and friendly and the lobby was a great meeting area where coffee, tea, fresh water and fruit juices were available and as far as we could make out, free.
We would absolutely return to the Smart Hotel in Tromso and are hoping to get back there in January.
