When we got in we were met by very friendly staff that did their best to make us feel good and have a good time. They upgraded us to an apartment rather than a room which meant we got to spend time in a newly upgraded (it looked brand new) place with lots of space and all the amenities you could want.
Please note, this hotel is a multi-building property with a "standard" hotel part and some apartments (studio and one-bedroom at least) in adjacent buildings. We only experienced the apartments, and can therefore not comment on rooms.
The apartments seem brand new. They contain fridge, stove top, oven etc, so you can make full meals there if you wish to. All appliances were steel-front and appeared brand new. There was a hardwood floor and the place was very nice and clean. Shower was also nice and clean.
The location is excellent, but there is building going on in the vicinity of the hotel, which means side-streets have been torn up etc, giving the area a kind of run-down look. It isn't though, and all the delights of Tromsø are in walking distance of this hotel. Shopping just around the corner, Polaria a short walk away etc.
Please note that the closeness to all things good also means that there is some foot traffic in the area. Fridays and Saturdays that probably means you'll hear the kids moving between pubs and bars, and they talk to each other. If the the sounds of the city (no traffic noise, just people) are a problem for you, you should probably stay somewhere else. I love the sound of the city and it never was loud, just present.
Oh, and I should probably mention, the breakfast area is tiny and the breakfast is unassuming. If you get an apartment, you might be better off making your own.
