We stopped here for 5 nights at the end of December/beginning of January. It is ideally situated right in the town centre of Tromsø and is just a stones throw from the sea. The bus from the airport drops you off and picks you up more or less outside. We asked for rooms on the 7th floor and we had...

Wanted a special break with a bit of luxury. The room could have provided this but instead the stains fag burns and dust left it disappointing instead. I wanted my partner to enter the room with a wow but got no reaction as it was dusty with loose electric heaters broken hooks fag burns scuffs and stains. The room looks...

This is definitely a great hotel. Good value for money, located next to the most expensive 4 and 5 stars hotels, but definitely cheaper, still elegant and quite high-end for a 3-star hotel. The receptionists are there for you, especially the manager and a young guy who did a lot to help us in an extremely friendly and professional manner!...

The hotel offered us a free upgrade to a suite which we really enjoyed. The room was big and well decorated. The bathroom looked a bit old, but worked well and had nice floor heating. The room was not noisy at all, so we enjoyed a good night of sleep. Breakfast was good, altho the breakfast room could need an...

The staff Iain Fielding gave me above & beyond service during my stay, which made my 4 days trip in Tromso a joy and a relax trip, especially in the cold winter days. The hotel room and bathroom were very clean and tidy. The restaurant's breakfast spreads were fresh, regularly refilled and with a variety of food each morning and...

Tromso isn't a big city, but even then, this is a very central hotel. Forget the fjord view (it's foggy most of the time anyway) of other places. It offers the basics but the breakfast buffet stands out. Only possible complaint: they have no longer a proper bar. There are, however, plenty watering holes nearby.

I had a week in Tromsø over Christmas and stayed at the Scandic Grand. The location is great. Tromsø isn't that big but even then there's a great choice of places to eat and drink within 1-2 blocks of the hotel. The people were very nice. Couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast spread is excellent. Given the time of...

This hotel is well located and has a good breakfast. It is easy to reach everything you need in Tromso. Do not expect a lot of comfort or facilities. This is a 3 star or even lower hotel, with a good price taking into account the prices in Tromso and Norway. No significant complains. We were unlucky with our room,...

We stayed 5 nights at the hotel in a family room. The room had 2 twin beds and a sofa bed, which wad sufficient was our family of four. The sofa bed was a bit creaky but comfortable enough for a good night's rest. The room came with breakfast and wifi (throughout the hotel). The breakfast spread was more than...
