Staff was friendly and welcoming.
The location is a nice downhill walk to the town centre and a short walk to Tromso Polar Museum, Perspektivet Museum and The Art Museum of Northern Norway. Also within walking distance to Polaria and Macks Brewery.
Breakfast was quite adequate tho rather basic. The view from our room across the water and of the Tromso Bridge and Arctic Cathedral was a lovely surprise - especially beautiful at night. The heated bathroom floor was most welcome.
The room, tho' small, was clean and comfortable for our two night stay.
We stayed in January 2013 and the icy footpath on the uphill climb (not steep) to the hotel from the town centre was at times quite slippery. (Not a fault of the hotel tho.)
Would be nice to have tea/coffee facilities in room.
Altho' the hotel was clean the interior appeared worn and tired.
I thought the tariff was a bit dear for this hotel... even for Norway.
