City Living Hotel & Apartments

Reviewed July 17, 2013

After a hectic periode my man and I needed to recharge our batteries. Having been married with a Tromsoe guy (donkeys years ago), this is one of our favourite places to come! Although we always have a choice of staying with friends whilst we're here, this time we chose to start off by staying at a hotel.
And what a good choice we made! The accommodation had a kitchenette fully equipped with 2 electric cooking plates and a fridge (important as it's an expensive country to eat and drink out!) (approximately 80.- Nkr. for a pint), a microwave, flat screen TV, sitting area, kitchen table, bathroom/shower, heating/air condition and the possibility to use a washing machine and dryer in the basement!
All this for "only" Nkr. 800.- a night which (trust me) is a good price! So if you're in this part of the world (the land of the midnight sun) don't hesitate to choose City Living! (Bang centre of town as well!)

Room Tip: We stayed with a partial view to Tromsdalen/Fjellheisen which was nice. (506)

We've stayed here about four times now, and enjoyed our stay every time. The main advantages are 1) price (for Norway it's reasonable), 2) location and 3) convenient, comfortable, clean rooms. As others have pointed out, it's a serviced apartment instead of a hotel. If you're looking for a clean, comfy bed and a mini-kitchen, which you can use for limited amount of cooking, this is your place. There are no services or facilities beyond the room to talk of.

Street noise can be an issue for those that sleep lightly, but we've never had a problem. It's a city centre place, so traffic noise kind of goes with the territory!

Room Tip: To avoid excessive traffic noise, make sure you don't get a street corner apartment/flat. Gronne...

A good quality service apartment with neat rooms. Walking distance from all attractions and helpful staff. The airport shuttle (flybussen) stops a block away and the walk in 2 minutes at the maximum. Would definitely stay here again.

This is not really a hotel but a serviced apartment, with basic supplies but very conveniently located in the centre of town. I stayed there recently on two occasions for two and one nights, before and after a cruise. Both times my rooms were clean and cosy. The staff at the reception was very helpful in trying to find out the fate of my lost/delayed luggage, making numerous phone calls on my behalf. It made my short stay that more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on higher floors, you'd have a great view of the surrounding mountains and les...

The City Living is not a real hotel but an apartment complex in the middle of Tromso, nearby the Thon and Rica hotels. It's just 10 minutes walk to the harbour. Book a superior room which are spacious including a kitchenette. You can park your car in a public parking place just a view minutes walk.

This place is not really a hotel, more a serviced apartment. I would never stay here again as it is terribly noisy. Traffic roars past all through the night and late night revellers seem to be hell bent on making as much noise as humanly possible at least until about 4am. I say at least 4 am because at this point I went and lay on the bathroom floor and managed to get a couple of hours sleep. Apart from the noise the 'hotel' is very basic but fine.

I stayed at this hotel along with my parents for a night. Hotel is nicely located with 10 mins drive from the airport, rooms are spacious, neat and clean, well furnished - everything that one needs for a stay. More importantly, the staff at the reception was very very friendly and courtious. They guided us on sightseeing tips, good nearby restaurants etc.
