Did an early check in. The first ten minutes they have no room with view available, but after that they just offer one in the seven floor, which was good. Good size in the room, no amenities, comfortable bed (although both bed and pillow were to soft, but that is a persona taste) and the size and cleaning of the... More

A friend and I stayed here for four days. The location was central and great for us without a car. Rooms were very clean and nice. They even had washcloths! Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast selection was extensive, served in a very pleasant dining room.

Considering Tromso price, this hotel is very good with good breakfast. The hotel is centrally located and can be reached to all the main attractions (not Tromso University Museum though) easily by walk. We were there from 7th August 2016-9th August 2016. The stuff are very helpful and room was very good sized with all the modern amenities. We bought... More

Centrally located, steps to all main attractions, more then average breakfast, not so small rooms and Scandinavian style. Looks ok if u do not spend too much. It is a decent 3 star hotel with some view, but starts to need a re-style, everything starts to look tired.

We stayed here overnight as a part of a coach tour of Scandinavia. The rooms were fine with comfortable beds and wifi. The food was served as a buffet but didn't have labels as to what the dishes were. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.

The hotel was good value for money for a one night stay in Norway which is an expensive country. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel is right in the centre of town. The room was basic but had what you needed. The bathroom was adequate but it could do with some refurbishment as compared to the bedroom... More

Cozy hotel in a good location, excellent staff, and good food. I would recommend this to anyone traveling up to Tromso. The room was well equipped with a couch, small table, minibar, and several chairs.

Extraordinarily friendly staff upon arrival. Nice basic room (nothing special, just all the basic stuff you need). Splendid location. Street noise can be heard from the rooms, but more bothering is the noise from a/c system. Tasty breakfast but easily over crowded & the breakfast staff was having difficulties trying to decide whether to clean the used dishes or not.... More

The rooms are quite spacious , although for some reason there aren't any bedside cabinets. Storage space is very, and I mean very, limited. Though there is a fridge.
