I had stayed in this hotel with my wife for 4 nights in double bedroom + kitchen. As we are vegetarian and struggle to find food that suits our tastebuds, it was really comfortable. I would highly recommend the hotel. The staff was very accommodating and polite.

Stayed for 4 nights. Room is big with full kitchen facilities. Very convenient location with supermarkets and eating places within walking distance. The heated floor in the bathroom is an added bonus. Will definitely choose this hotel again if we decided to come back.

I really liked our stay at this hotel! It was clean and warm! We stayed in a small apartment for three people and i got to sleep on the sofa but it was surprisingly comfortable. What I appreciated the most was the lovely girl at the reception, she helped us organize our excursions and was very patient with our questions.

We weren't looking for anything too special. Just somewhere clean and comfortable where we can cook, eat and sleep. That's exactly what we got, it was perfect. The staff were very friendly and the location superb.

I stayed here for 6 nights. Booking was easy as was the check in process. My room had a kitchenette: two heating plates, a refrigerator and pots and pans. My favorite is the heated bathroom floor. I also found the room to be soundproof so I never heard noise from others in the hotel. I did meet a couple on... More

The hotel was perfect for us! Helpful staff too, even came outside and pointed our way to the supermarket, and gave us directions to the lake. It was so handy to have the kitchen facilities, and the supermarkets are close by. The room itself was clean and spacious, and although a view would have been great, it didn't make any... More

Service was good from booking in to leaving. Room clean and able to cook food was a bonus for me. Having a key card to get into hotel and your room made the security feel very safe. They provided a toaster on request and nothing was to much trouble even helped with maps and bus time tables.

Conveniently located hotel with helpful reception staff in the center of Tromso; restaurants and grocery stores nearby within easy walking distance. Having a kitchenette and onsite laundry facilities makes this a great value for cost choice for staying more than a night or two in Tromso. Will definitely stay here again.
