We recently spent 4 nights at the Ami Hotel in Tromso where we hoped to see the Northern Lights. The Ami is clean and comfortable. We stayed in the attic whose window provided a fantastic view over the town and the cathedral over the water. The main advantage of the Ami Hotel to us was that we were able to cook our own food, which in an expensive country like Norway and on a limited budget was very useful indeed. The facilities are great, the bedrooms have a fridge and the kitchen is well equipped and next to the dining room where we ate the meals we produced. A great breakfast was provided by the hotel every morning which was plentiful, boiled eggs, cheese, cold meats, bread, fruit and orange juice etc.
Free coffee and chocolate, or tea, were also available all day. The dining room also had a TV and Internet access, where each evening guests could check electro-magnetic activity to gauge the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights and share their expereinces / photographs with other guests.
The hotel was very well run and always kept clean and tidy.
Bedrooms were available with their own bathroom, or with shared facilities.
The hotel is on top of a hill over looking the town, only a short walk, but quite steep for anyone who has difficulty with hills, especially on icy pavements.
Unfortunately the Northern lights didn't make much of an appearance while we were there due to cloud cover, but we had a lovely holiday just the same, in this very beautiful country and in this warm and hospitable hotel. We will definitely stay there again, on our next quest to see the Northern Lights!
