Everything in this hotel is great. Its clean, in a great location and staff are very friendly. We had a family room with two bunks and a double bed, small but perfect for four. But besides the general positive rating, I have to point out the breakfast, which is super, mega, hyper great!

We have just returned from the Scandic Ishavshotel after a 3 night break. Lovey hotel, modern, inviting with a fantastic breakfast. I had emailed in advance to state that this was a trip of a lifetime and we were celebrating a special occasion and to see if it was possible to get an upgrade or at least a room with...

I stayed there 2 nights in February. The room was warm although the window was open and the heater was off when I first checked in! The good was of a good size and with a nice view. My room was at the end of the hallway so it wasn't noisy. The breakfast was very good of different kinds of...

This hotel was supposed to be our little splurge - of all our 10 nights in Norway this was by far the most expensive and was much higher than any other hotel in Tromso, so I expected a nice hotel. I was sorely disappointed. First of all, I booked a 'view' room only to be told upon check in that...

Very comfortable hotel on Tromso harbour front. Friendly helpful staff and great views from seaward facing rooms. Comprehensive breakfast with lots of choice and light spacious environment. A very good base for activities around Tromso

I stayed at the Scandic for two days before joining a Fjords/ Northern lights cruise. Rooms were cosy but immaculate and functional. Hotel staff all seemed very young but we're lovely. The breakfast buffet alone is worth a visit; with an amazing selection of everything!!

We booked a family room for a family of 4 (kids aged 12 & 15). Hotel has a great location, right in the centre, but the room is far too small with zero space for storage. We were told at check out that our best option was to book a Junior Suite but all the online info said that these...

We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed here for our entire trip to Tromsø. It was the best hotel we encountered there. The design and decor are cool and funky. Staff was helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast was great. We had a few drinks at the bar and the wine was excellent- same prices as the...

Excellent hotel situated on the waterfront with a view of Ishav Cathedral and the lift to the mountains. Superb rooms and good service. The breakfasts were enormous and very delicious. The menus for other meals were not too good and very expensive.

Great location close to many restaurants and where the buses leave from for the various tours. We had a family room which was nice but small given all the luggage for a week away and a family of four. Breakfast is a very impressive in both range and quality of food. Also a large restaurant so plenty of seating. Only...
