“OK despite small rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Nothing is too much trouble for the terrific staff at this hotel only five minutes walk from the centre of town. However, the rooms, although adequate were also very small and the breakfast (included in the room price) pretty basic. However, there is free tea and coffee available from early morning and throughout the day and in the late afternoon there are free servings of good waffles. I'd stay here again but mainly because of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff who can't be faulted.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We rented an apartment here for two adults and two teenagers. Having a kitchen makes a world of difference given the high price of dining out. The apartment (a new one this season) was wonderful - very spacious and well-equipped. There was a strong smell of fresh paint, which was a bit troublesome, but that should be gone by next month. Apartments have access to the laundry facilities at the hotel (across the street) and they had waffle-makings in the lobby every evening from 4 to 9pm. The staff was helpful and responsive, and called a taxi to take us to the airport -- cheaper than the bus if you have 3 or more people.

Room Tip: The apartment we stayed in had a double bed in one room, a single in another, and a second floor wit...

Staying in this hotel was a real pleasure. I arrived in Tromso without a room on the busiest evening of the summer season and all the hotels were booked. I finally had the second last room in this hotel, where I found the staff welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. They went out of their way to give me information, organised an early breakfast etc.

The room was excellent, clean and comfortable, everythng you require for a nights stay. The homemade yoghurt for breakfast was excellent

We stayed in this hotel during our three day stay in Tromso. Four of us shared a family room and whilst small it was comfortable and all we needed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Hotel was well situated for exploring the area. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the foyer as well as comfortable chairs. Every afternoon you can make yourself free waffles. All in all a great little hotel and we enjoyed our stay.

We were a group of friends who visited Tromsø in february. The apartment was on the 3rd floor about 75 metres from the hotel. A good place to stay. There was some confusion between Twin beds and double beds and with 5 guys, we had a challenge with that. That apart, the accomodation and all the facilities were excellent. There was a jacuzzi which good but sat on an elevation in the bathroom. The apartment is not the best choice for families with babies or older people. May be they have other accomodation at ground level and then it should be ok. The services were OK. Even though check in was supposed to be at 1200, we did not get the accomodation till after 1300. Plan for it. its not easy to get big apartments ready if people are checking out the same day. Ideal is to take an afternoon flight into Tromsø.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with children and seniors, check for apartments at lower levels. If the apartm...

The apartment I've stayed in is located 100 meters from the hotel itself, looks nice and has all the amenities needed. Heating worked very good and you should consider that when you are above Arctic Circle :). Unfortunately the Wi-Fi broken down for 2 days, the staff could not provide a spare router to solve the issue and there was a little bit of hustle about it. The hotel and apartments don't have a laundry service! If you want you can use the washing machine and dryer (for free) but there is no liquid detergent for gentle wash cycles (30 degrees) and takes 3-4 hours to get you clothes back. Also there is no option for ironing.
Overall is a good apartment to stay in if wi-fi works and you can get along with lack of proper laundry service, even if you want to pay for it.

We stayed at a 3 bedrooms apartment in March for couple nights. The apartment itself is located at another location rather than the hotel location. Since the road was full of ice, it was kind of difficult for us to walk up and down from the apartment. The apartment is small but with what people needed to stay. Wifi worked perfectly. The only concern was that there was only 1 bathroom for 4 of us to share. But I don't think I should complain about it. It is not too far to all the attraction, tourist information and bus stops. At the hotel, we can use the laundry for free. There is only 1 washer and 1 dryer and it will take you over 3 hours for washing and drying. It opens 24 hours. If you have over 3 people heading to Viking, you should consider taking a taxi instead of the airport bus because it is cheaper and stop in front of Viking. Overall, we had a pleasant stay. Thank you Viking!
