“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We stayed here for a week In February. The AMI is in a great location near the town centre. For Norway it offered good value for money. The rooms are small but comfortable. The shared facilities (shower, kitchen) worked well, but became a bit congested at busy times. We had a great time north of the artic circle. If we ever return to Tromso , we will check out AMI again.

Great location just up the hill from Tromso city centre, within walking distance of everything. The hotel is set up somewhere between a hostel and backpacker's lodge, i.e. a kitchen available for use and a common area by reception to socialise and plan excursions. The reception area/lounge is very cosy and feels like an alpine lodge. Breakfast was fine - not the biggest spread but it is a budget hotel and there was plenty to start your day.

The room was clean and comfortable and if you're lucky enough to get one at the front of the house you'd have a great view across Tromso. I would recommend asking for extra pillows - the one provided was pretty thin. Also the staff were very helpful - the front desk is only manned until 3pm but they were happy to let us use the bag storage room however long we wanted after we'd checked out.

We only stayed here for one night but would definitely recommend - the staff have a great knowledge of local amenities and activities and it's one of the best hotels for budget in Tromso.

Room Tip: Ask for more pillows. Walk around, not through, the park when it's snowy. The park steps are sl...

We arrived in February 2014 at AMI HOTEL in Tromso. The hotel/bed&breakfast has a great atmosphere. It is fully equiped for the adventurous traveller.

It's situated in the city centre and on walking distance of all the main attractions.

Their kitchen is fully equiped and to available to use all day long. They even have vacuum flasks which you can use if your planning a hike or northern light chase. The rooms are fine but it's the athmosphere the hotel breathes which makes it excellent.

There's a perfect wifi connection and on top of that they also have a desktop with printer, both free of use.

The bed and breakfast also has a parking lot which is quite convenient when you rent a car for multiple days.

If you don't have high standards and your looking for a friendly and cosy atmosphere I would certainly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Sincerely,

Terry de Lange

This hotel is a bit uphill from just the city centre. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast. Cosy sitting area. And totally in budget for a expensive country like Norway. Rooms are small but equipped with fridge tv couch table and chair! All in all, nice and cosy :) and the location is perfect for the view of the city and also to be in the centre of the city in 5 minutes!!

You could ask for a room in the front side of the hotel which would be city facing, to see the beautiful night view of the city.

We have recently returned from a 7 night stay at the AMI hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
We had a second floor front facing room (as requested) with a beautiful city view - the elevated position of hotel enabled this but was still only 5-10 minutes walk from the centre. Our room and en suite shower were small and basic but with a fridge and adequate storage and most importantly, clean and very warm. The snow-covered steps through the park to the hotel were very slippy but we had no problem with luggage walking up the pavement/road to the left or right of the hotel.
The kitchen and sitting area were well equipped and again were kept very clean and tidy by staff and guests. These areas provided a good opportunity to socialise, use the computer to follow current Aurora activity and compare notes with others. Breakfast was ample and the hot drinks machine (which was out of action but then replaced) during our stay, very welcome!
In a really beautiful country, but one which is very expensive to visit, we feel that the AMI represents excellent value and will definitely recommend.

If you like a hotel that is small and cosy, AMI hotel is the place for you. The fully equipped guest kitchen/dining/tv lounge area is a great place for hanging out and mingling with other guests, if you wish to. and of course save money on eating out. There's self-service coffee, tea and hot chocolate all day, and as we were there on New Year, they provided some lovely cakes as well. Breakfast was good.

We had a room with private bath on the 3rd floor, in the front of the hotel, so we had amazing views of the city since the hotel is on a slope. I think it's room 32. 2 beds pushed together, pretty comfortable though the pillows were quite flat. The room was clean and quite small but the size didn't bother us much. The bathroom had a heater which i really appreciated, and there was a squeegee to dry the floor after we shower (i hate wet floors), very thoughtful of them! There's no lift so be prepared to carry your bags up the stairs.

Getting to the hotel with luggage can be a little bit of challenge. We were fortunate as the flybus driver dropped us right at the door, but our friend who arrived earlier dragged her bags up the slope (stairs completely covered in ice). Tip: follow the road around the side, it's easier to walk. Otherwise it's fine - the main downtown area is just a short walk. You can take the small plastic sleds at the reception and have some fun at the slope, which we did.

A lovely little hotel overall. good service, peaceful surroundings, gorgeous views.
