“KEEP UP TO THEIR COMMITMENT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Had pleasent and very comfortable stay at city living.
Co-operative staff.
Our stay was during FIFA world cup
They had asked to predict for winning teams with exact no.s of goal scores.
We got refund of the said amount ,after coming back from vacation,as my son's prediction was perfect!!

Helpful staff, great room and amenities, service, and location. Supermarket one block away.

But ridiculously slow WiFi. Complete all critical time-sensitive online tasks before arriving. I was also unable to darken room in July which affected my sleep cycle. I was told better blackout blinds/drapes are coming. Otherwise, except for the WiFi and daylight in the room all 'night' long, I really like this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 509 was excellent, except for my reservations noted above.

Everything I have to say about City Living Tromsø is positive. I am often really critical as I like people who read my reviews can have an (subjective) accurate idea of what they are going to find.
I arrived to Tromsø by Hurtigruten in the middle of the night (March).
Regarding the staff, THEY ARE REALLY HELPFUL AND KIND!! They assisted me 150% since before arriving in order to do not get lost. As the hotel was really close to the pier, it was not necessary to take a taxi. I sent them an email regarding I was arriving quite late at night as the reception is open until 12pm. They called me in order to give me all the instructions regarding where to find my roomcard. They even sent me (without asking) a scanned map to follow from the pier.
When I got to the apartment, I found a very nice and comfortable room with 2 beds and kitchenette. Big bathroom with floor heating and a big shower cabinet. The room was quite well decorated with modern furniture. I LOVED IT!!! Quality for price!!!
Also because of staying at City Living, I had the opportunity to take breakfast with discount just across the street (norwegian buffet).
Central location, clean, nice and cozy rooms, great facilities and 150% helpful staff for 699 nkr!!!

Stayed here for 4 nights. Very good location, and a good price for Tromso.

In the summer the reception is open till midnight (guests have their own key cards though, so can come and go as they please). The reception staff were very friendly and helped us with whatever we needed. The hotel was clean, and the room came with a a kitchen, dining table and lounge chair. The hotel is also equipped with free washing machines and driers (detergent not provided). Many other items, such as microwaves and irons were available for free. We were also allowed to store rented bikes in our rooms, or in the hotel's closed yard. It's a quite relaxed place - easy and eager to please.

The downsides were some of the amenities in the room. Our dishwasher (not all rooms have them, so check) needed some maintenance, which the staff accomplished. A couple of bulbs also needed replacing. The air conditioning in the rooms is quite loud, but we were able to get a good night's sleep there.

All in all though, my wife and I had a very positive experience here! Having our own kitchen was practically a necessity as we were not prepared to pay for meals out, which are very expensive in Norway (on average food is about twice the price of the UK).
