This hotel is central and we appreciated the location! They let us store our hired bikes inside (even though it wasn't in a room but it was still good of them). We had a room facing the main street which was nice. Nice breakfast too! I recommend this place and would stay here again.

Had ordered room through COOP. First we got room against backyard with much smell from kitchen when we opened window. We asked for a new room in reception and got a much better room. Standard the same, but with better view and fresh air. Rooms need updating. Friendly and serviceminded staff / reception. Nice breakfast.

Our check in was completed efficiently although we arrived early. The staff were helpful with information. Restaurants, tourist information office and sightseeing sites within walking distance and hop on - hop off and airport shuttle buses both stop near hotel. The breakfast was sumptuous and a good variety to choose from. Complimentary tea n coffee in the lobby was most... More

We stayed for two nights when visiting Tromsø for a weekend. We arrived to Tromsø around noon, but it was not problem to check in earlier. The staff at the Front desk was very service-minded and helpful. We got spacious room with king size bed. The room was clean, bed comfortable, bathroom nice. Complimentary tee/coffee in the reception area was... More

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.
