“Warm welcome and fab apartment in central location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We had a large apartment on the top floor, which was spotless, really spacious and equipped with everything we needed. Even though it was next to the lift, this did not disturb us at all. The TIC, town centre, galleries, harbour and supermarkets, are all within a 5mins walk so it was ideally located. The staff were really friendly and helpful and looked after us really well.

Just back from another wonderful stay at cityliving apartments. Reception staff as before cant do enought for you. Apartments spotless clean and so warm in fact we had to leave the heating off most of the time. one piece of advice if your on a budget bring as much food as you can like sauces, rice,pasta, butter mayo and thoes lovely superquin sausages and rashers , this will save you a fortune. Everything to cook with is provided in the apartment so make the most of it and keep your money for going out on the tours of the lights.We got very lucky and on our last night were looking at the beautiful lights from oue apartment window. Also this place is in an excellent location and the beds are by far the most comfy i have slept in.

I came across three different receptionists during my stay here, and all were very helpful and courteous! The bathroom floor had heated tiles! Loved it! And the mini kitchen area was great since we were able to make our own breakfast and lunch. Norway is expensive, especially converting from the dollar :(. Still, for the price, it was worth it! A very nice room and close to everything we wanted to do in town! Would highly recommend this hotel!

This place was so comfortable and homey. The young woman at the front desk was patient, smiley, and very helpful. I wanted us to be friends in real life. The accommodations were relaxing and convenient - the mini kitchen area was a life-saver. Other than our room being situated next to the elevator (somewhat noisy), I have zero complaints. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We knew that Norway was expensive but knowing it and paying £30 for sandwiches and water at Oslo Airport were 2 different things!!
This is where the City Hotel came into its own , the kitchen was well equipped and if you needed anything you only had to ask and the spacious rooms made you feel right at home
There are 2 supermarkets withins a 5 minute walk and the hotel was centrally located for the city as well.
The staff were so helpful down to phoning us the first night when there was an incredible Aurora display right above the hotel.
Without a doubt we would head straight back to this hotel for our next stay

Room Tip: If you are bothered by noise dont take a front room as in the winter cars have studded tyres , we ha...

I travel to Tromso on a regular basis often staying 1-2 weeks. The City Living Hotel is my preferred hotel in Tromso as the apartments are excellent and give a little more space and privacy than a normal hotel. The apartment has a kitchen with dishwasher and a nicely proportioned bathroom. There is a laundry in the basement and free parking, as well as free fast internet. It is centrally located near supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful and there was no problem checking in at 1 am. Despite being on a busy street (for Tromso!), there is little disturbance as the noise (and heat) insulation is excellent. The corner apartment is very light and has a great view of the mountains. I highly recommend the City Living Hotel if you are staying in Tromso for a week or more.

This was our second visit to City Living. The facilities are excellent although a microwave would have been 'very excellent'. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The location was good.
Tromso is a lovely City and well worth visiting.

Room Tip: We had a superior apartment which was a bit more spacious.
