Just returned from our trip to Tromsø, and we were quite happy that we stayed at the Clarion Bryggen! GREAT location in middle of everything, and just about everything we wanted to see in town is within five minutes walking time. The staff was so very friendly and helpful with all of our silly tourist questions, and really went out of their way to help us get around the area. (Surprisingly, for a tourist destination, Tromsø doesn't do a very good job of pointing out their information center, posting street signs, or offering English on restaurant menus). I am not one of those people that thinks everything needs to be in English to cater to me, but there are a LOT of Brits, Americans and Canadians traveling to this area for holiday...just sayin).
Anyway, the room was a very good size, decent view, and allowed you to set your own temperature. Big bathroom, with a nice deep tub / shower combo. The included breakfast was very tasty and offered a diverse selection. Coffee and tea could be had for free throughout the day, and was much appreciated with our wacky schedule. Fast and free WiFi always puts a smile on my face, and the signal was good throughout the hotel. The only small items that keep me from awarding a top score.... The cleaning staff didn't do an awesome job, and our toilet area had a bit of a funk throughout our stay (I think a previous lodger may have peed back behind the toilet), and although nice (and keeping in mind that it IS Norway), I still found it to be a bit spendy. That all said, I would definitely stay here again unless I'm going back for a lengthy stay.
