We stayed at Sydspissen because it was the only hotel available on Tromsø without a stupid price tag at the time of our journey, but this turned out to be a bit of good luck.
The hotel is a short walk from a nice little beach which is ideal for viewing the Northern Lights in the evening and is right next to a location I have been using for the last 12 years.
The hotel is well signposted from the main road and just a short walk away from a COOP supermarket.
The rooms are compact with two narrow single beds placed end to end along one wall but you can put them together if you want to, the bathroom is basic, with a sliding door, a toilet, basin and shower, there is no hairdryer in the bathroom but the room itself has a small TV and a mini fridge.
The included breakfast is fairly standard although a little thin on some items, it includes some very nice fresh breads, a selection of toppings to make your own sandwiches, a selection of cereals, rather watery fruit juices, tea and coffee.
Parking is free if you have a car but if you don't it is possible to walk into the centre of Tromsø although it could take you up to an hour depending on your walking speed.
A taxi from the airport to the hotel costs about NOK 220, the bus is cheaper but takes a lot longer.
