“Most excellent room with a view ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I have never been so struck by the panoramic views from a hotel as I was in this one. From the large, comfortable Hästens bed (costing a Kings ransom if memory serves) there is a view similar to that from the bridge of a ship, yet one feels that it would almost be possible to stretch your toes a little an feel the water of the fiord. There is really nothing at all that I would change about the room, which I think must have been a Superior one. It is true that the hotel seems a little short staffed and that the cooking isn't Financial District cool gourmet grub - but it is really very pleasant indeed and the mixed German, Norwegian and Polish staff were all friendly, attentive and down to earth. I can't praise this hotel enough. Excellent WiFi all over the hotel.

Room Tip: Superior rooms with panoramic views of the fiord is an excellent choice.

As the title says they have a complete package , i went with my son and two grandsons. Had a late arrival but instructions ,key and relative information was left for us at reception . The following morning we were welcomed and given all information to enjoy our stay .We had a boat for 6 days and the freedom of the fjords . The boats are well maintained and simple to use.The fishing facilities on the quay are very good, slightly limited fishing tackle to buy but just about everything's included, live jackets etc Cottage was exceptionable i have never been somewhere so well equipt even down to dishwasher tablets . We had number 1 with unspoiled views the length of the fjord Last but not least the friendliness of the Norwegian people especially Katrin on reception great job Ron& Family

Room Tip: all are brill fishermans cottages along the waterside there was even luxury ones

Malangen Brygger have great potential, but unfortunately the staff seems unprofessional and the whole concept seems a bit premature. My husband had booked a superior room for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotels website promised good food, wonderful surroundings, nice rooms and the gem itself: an outdoor Jacuzzi and a sauna. The surroundings were amazing, so no complaints there! The room was very nice indeed, but a bit cold, and the spotlights in the room kept flickering to the degree that we turned of the lights not get to dizzy. The room was overall clean, but we found some old bloodstains on the bed, yuck....
We had our 3-course dinner in the hotel restaurant. The waiter was nice, but he didn't seem very experienced. The food was ok, but far from great. The salad was somewhat soggy and did not taste fresh, the steak was a bit dry and the dessert tasted as it had been frozen and thawed. The chicken with broccoli and paprika puree did however taste amazing.
After dinner we wanted to relax in the sauna and outdoor jacuzzi, only to be told that this was not possible unless we had booked it on beforehand. Now some other guests had beat us to it, and had booked both the sauna and the jacuzzi, so that it wouldn't be able for us to use either that afternoon or evening. We checked and double-checked the website, but there was no information about pre-booking the sauna/jacuzzi what so ever!!! A huge disappointment!
When my husband complained about our stay (both regarding the bloodstains in the bed, the unavailable sauna/jacuzzi, and the food) the lady at the front desk, who was also the manager, paid little attention to the feedback. She actually insisted that my husband was wrong about his feedback, and didn’t want to give compensation or even an apology. When my husband said that we would write this on TripAdvisor she also told him that if she found us writing something that was incorrect about their business, we would be very sorry and would be in trouble. My husband felt threatened and really uncomfortable! After about 30 minutes of arguing, we ended up getting a small discount on the room and what seemed to be a forced excuse regarding the state of the room and the unavailable sauna/Jacuzzi, but no apology for threatening my husband.
Conclusion: a beautiful place with great potential, but terrible service and an overall unpleasant experience.

Malangen brygger is a wonderful place, it is sunny, the views are magnificent and there are a few nice activities. The rooms/huts are modern, spacious and clean, all face the water. However, the service is not on par with the rooms, and many of the rooms (which are privately owned) lack items promised in the description. This time our hut did not have a electric water-kettle, and the double bed was just a large single bed, but definitely not a double bed. They charged for a babycrib, but did not have any bedding or sheets for it. Our 2-year old slept in a regular bed and could stay for free, but the baby was charge for dispte the missing bedding. Breakfast is ok, but the buffee was slightly disappointing. New management could do miracles with Malangen brygger, but as it is I would definitely recommend Sommarøy Arctic Hotel to any tourists.

We stayed here for one night during a wedding weekend nearby. We got a room in the hotel building, and the view was quite simply amazing. High standard and excellent in every way. Wa also tried the restaurant, and it was ok, nothing overly fancy, but decent. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We also got a good price, so we're very happy with everything. Definitely coming back for another stay soon!

Although this hotel is in a real deserted area and a bit away from Tromsö, it is definitely worth a visit. The rooms are very modern with stylish furnitures and lamps. The bathroom is big and also very modern. The view is simply stunning. We happened to be there on a beautiful sunny day and the midnight sun was outstanding.

The food they serve at the Restaurant is delicious and the entire staff is extremely friendly.

We stayed here for 1 night in a Fisherman's cottage. The view is spectacular. The cottage is comfortable and clean and satisfies the basic needs and that was all we needed. The restaurant area is very well equipped and the breakfast was quite good.

We were leaving for Lofoten Islands the next day and never had a chance to explore the area but I'm sure we'd find it amazing if we had.

All in all, I think this is a cool place to stay while in Tromso if you love nature.
