We booked to stay in these apartments for 3 days originally. It was so good that we booked another 3 nights. They offered us a 5% discount off the best price we found by booking direct with them. Tromso is such an expensive place that it was wonderful to have a kitchen and we able to cook a few meals... More

I had stayed in a studio apartment with my friend for four nights for the sake of chasing Aurora Borealis in September 2015. City Living is in an excellent location which is close to everything – supermarket, shops, tourist information centre, pier and all are within walking distance. It is so convenient that we can come back to our room... More

We stayed here for a week and were really happy. The location is central so you can easily walk anywhere in Tromsø. The staff were friendly and helpful (there was a mistake with my payment which was corrected as soon as I spotted it without any fuss). They offer a discount for parking in the underground carpark. The kitchen facilities... More

We had a two night stay here and it was all very comfortable, we were extremely happy with the set up. Check in was fast and professional, very nice young guy on reception. Especially the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a nice touch and the little dishwasher and kitchen all excellent creature comforts. The bed was also very good... More

I stayed here for one night only on the trip to see the aurora. From the airport by taxi is around 10 minutes. I arrived in the morning and my room was not ready yet. So I left my luggage and went around to visit some good spots at Tromso. The location is strategic. Close to the bus stop and... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, location is perfect. It is in the center, food is easily available. The hotel staff is polite and she offered us a lower level room once she spotted us bringing loads of bags because the lift isnt working. It is a very nice gesture from the staff. We recommend staying at this... More

Location is pretty good as it is a short walk from flybussen bus stop (2 small streets away). Room is pretty big with kitchenette. Service is good although there is only 1 receptionist cum porter (if you really need help with your luggage). Do bear in mind that this is an apartment (not hotel), hence, there won't be any housekeeping... More

It located at the city centre of tromso, close to the fly bus station, supermarket and main shopping street. The room is large enough for two people with basic utencils and a small kitchen, it is tidy, clean and quiet. Though no breakfast included, you may cook or have it downstairs, there are many restaurants nearby. If you are looking... More
