“Convenient and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The hotel is 5 minutes from the Hurtigruten terminal and thus very convenient. The hotel opened in May 2104 , it is a modern building, 11th floor, no charm but beautiful panorama views once inside, at least from our corner suite! reception can be very busy but on the whole helpful if you need service ( reservation of taxi or restaurant) but this is Norway so don't expect too much! Breakfast buffet is excellent. But why so dark and low ceiling in the restaurant, when most of the time it is grey and dark outside in this part of the world? excellent wifi and fun sky roof bar.

Our family reunion party was held at The Edge. Booking rooms went smoothly and the rooms we got were great, clean and tidy. We lived in a suite. The beds were just right. The bathroom was large and the showers were good. Breakfast offer had everything (omeletts, pancakes, all kinds of bread, cereals, juices, vegetables, salads. . The staff were perfect helpers with the event. Only thing to complain about was the main course of the meal. The meat was overcooked :(
Good location, next to a shopping center, restaurants. Bus from the airport is just next by.
Fresh free newspapers from the reception desk. We will stay at this hotel next time in Tromso.

Room Tip: Junior suites give you av view of the Harbor to the north and the south.

Heading home from work in hammerfest, had to overnight and was booked to Thon but I cancelled after seeing this hotel on the net. Awesome new hotel,right on water.huge modern comfy rooms.brilliant breakfast. Book this you won't be disappointed. There's a roof bar,but I went around the corner of the hotel for supper in the Sun. If I'm overnighting again I'm staying here. Lovely place and friendly staff.

The rooms at the end of each floor, with wall to wall glass are wonderful. This stylish hotel offers free elaborate breakfasts - the best we had in 3 weeks in Norway. Good location in walking distance to the downtown area.

Possibly our favourite hotel in Norway.
Very modern hotel. All the staff were very friendly.
The room was huge, with all the facilities that we could have asked for, and beautiful views
High quality bathroom products, and good selection of teas and coffees in the room.
The bed was very comfortable!
Choice of food at breakfast was also amazing!

Room Tip: Get a room on as high a floor as you can - the views are excellent!

I stayed here for a conference recently, and I was amazed with how wonderful the service was! The staff is very friendly and helpful--always willing to go out of their way to help a guest. The food is AMAZING!!! Especially the breakfast! There's quite a variety for the complementary breakfast that they serve: breads, meats, cheeses, yogurt bar, eggs, sausage, and (my favorite) the omelet station. The other great thing about the breakfast is that it's available as early as ~6 a.m. until as late at 11 a.m., which allows those early-risers to get some fuel for the day AND those that like to sleep-in (like me!) the chance to do so and not miss out. The other great thing about the hotel is that the rooms have really dark curtains, which is a must during the midnight sun in order to get any sleep. The hotel is brand new, so there are a few things here and there that are prone to glitches, such as the elevator (the doors would open randomly), but other than that everything was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who visited Tromso.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views. The bar is on the 11th floor, so that floor may be a little noisy...
