First of the breakfast was extremely good - a wide assortment of delicious foods to choose from. Probably goes into our top3 hotel breakfasts anywhere. Secondly the view facing the harbour from our room was amazing. Location is very nice and just a short walk from the shopping street. The only small complaints we have was the slow check-in and...

We stayed here for 2 nights before a trip to Lofoten. The hotel is modern and quite new. It is located on the harbor and in the center of town. Tromso can be visited by foot easily and the location of the hotel is perfect. We had nice room overlooking the harbour, sea and Tromso hill. The room was clean,... More

This is a fine hotel exceptionally well located for airport connection (Flybussen stops outside and much cheaper No 42 public bus nearby). It is also centrally located on the harbour front - well worth booking a superior room for the view ( although not of you are troubled by boats or some engine noise overnight). All of Tromso's best sights... More

The location is excellent as it sticks out like a ship in the water, in the middle of the city. They serve probably one of the best breakfastes I have eaten. Lots of Norweigan delikatessen and a barista for your coffe. The room was clean and the beds were nice to sleep in. There was a TV but no fridge.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a trip to Lofoten. I chose the hotel for it's location on the waterfront and we were not disappointed. The Hurtigruten docks right next to the hotel (2.30pm to 6.30pm for the North bound ship) and draws a crowd to see it leave each evening. Reception was friendly and helpful... More

This hotel is in the very centre of Tromsø, 30 feet from the waterline and the place where the coastal steamer "Hurtigruta" docks. The seaview is beautiful and the rooms comfortable, clean, well kept and spacious. Both times I stayed in the hotel I had rooms facing the sea and these are absolutely recommendable both in winter and summer. The... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times & always look forward to its great location near the Hurtigruten dock & great views. The breakfast buffet was always tops but this time it appears that they have downsized the selections to eliminate a number of pastries, herrings & yogurts, etc. Perhaps customers' requests for more veggies & other fish...

Beware the split level rooms if you have mobility issues. Differing designs but some have no drawers or shelves, so don't plan on unpacking. Some rooms have great views (I was lucky, my friend was not). Great location - most things are within walking distance and the bus system is easy for further destinations. Breakfast is good.

The rooms at the hotel were being upgraded whilst we there. We had a superior sea view room which we would recommend. The Norwegian Kings Royal Yacht was berthed outside the hotel for 2 nights so we could watch the crew’s activities and the King & Queen’s arrival. We could also see the bridge & cable car from our room.... More
