Everything was ok,kitchenette is convenient and well equipped. No housekeeping if staying more than a night. Any request for housekeeping required additional charges of 250nok. Location is good. Wifi slow occasionally. It is time to upgrade the lift.

We visited Tromso in mid-Feb for 6 days chasing northern light. I find it very good value staying in City Living.

We stayed in a room on a lower floor (3/F). It is very good size for two persons with 4 luggage. The room is facing the backyard so it is very quiet. The downside is that the curtains had to be closed most of the time - but not really bothering me. The bed is very comfortable. But admittedly the bathroom is small.

It has all the basic cooking facility. Breakfast is not included in the room rate. As we normally returned back to the hotel from northern light tour at 1-2am, you do not want to be forced to wake up early so as to have breakfast before closure. Hence we cooked for our breakfast (indeed more a brunch). Aslo cost of living in Tromso is extremely high, it is good to have the flexibility of preparing meals in the room if so want to.

Location is very central and within walking distance to many places. I would certainly stay in City Living again if I return to Tromso for northern light again (which I will as it is an amazing experience)

I was there with my girlfriend to witness the Northern Light between 6th to 9th Feb 2014. City Living, is definitely one of the well equipped apartment especially for us people from the tropical country. Since we are there during the winter, our outmost priority definitely has to be the room heater, which works perfectly fine (with 2). The most impressive is that the bathroom has heated flooring which is definitely nice when we return from the freezing street.

The fully equipped kitchenette did help us in saving our dollars where everything is so expensive. After a trip to the supermarket around 5 mins away, we are all ready for a 4 days meals all prepared in the kitchenette.

The stuff are especially helpful in providing the best recommendation.

There is not a lot to be said about this hotel, but it's all good. It is nice and very clean, pretty big rooms, nice big bathroom, big bed. In general, it was very good value.

One of the nights we stayed there, some chinese tourist put his shoes in the oven (to dry... at 4am?) which caused the fire alarm to go off several times. The hotel was extremely apologetic and professional, and refunded us for one night. They handled it superbly.

After one vacation staying in the two City Living hotels, I recommend them hugely. They're awesome, they're cheap, they're super clean and they offer great value for money! Stay there if you can!

I booked a room there and they have a kitchen in the room even it is only a single room. There are complete set of utensils. But make sure you bring your own condiment otherwise you need to buy the big one in supermarket, which may ruin your plan of saving money.

Also notice that there are no reception at night. If you come late please indicate in your reservation or you need to prepare a way to call them and call someone to open the room for you when you arrive late.

The room is clean and the staff are friendly in general. Worth trying if you like to cook. Also there is a self laundry machine in the basement but you need to bring your own soap.
