“All you need in Tromso”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great business hotel in Tromso. Located right by the water, the rooms are large and comfortable. Bathroom clean and spacious. Room got a bit cold at night and didn't improve much even when adjusted temperature. Still, nice beds and good breakfast.

This was our second stay at this hotel and having had the most basic room last time this time we went for a much more expensive 'Business Room,' partly because there was not much else available. This room was certainly very large, fully carpeted (unlike our previous room) and having a corner location made it particularly light and airy. There was a strange espresso machine which we never quite got the hang of and some cups, but no kettle. For the tariff we felt the room was a bit tatty - there were missing tiles in the bathroom and the walls and skirting boards throughout were conspicuously scuffed and marked. Some of the power sockets appeared not to work. However the bathroom was a decent size and everything was again very clean. To be frank we only went to the Radisson again because we couldn't get a room anywhere else. But the staff are always pleasant and helpful, the breakfast buffet is good, and the hotel is very close to the harbour. In addition you can get the bus to the airport from the stop opposite the hotel. It is primarily a business hotel and used extensively by the flight crews.

This hotel has a wonderful view of the harbor and was clean and inviting. Many northern lights tours leave from in front of this hotel or the one across the street. The breakfast buffet included many options.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a harbor view

I have stayed there 2 nights, have payed for junior suite 5500 NOK(730 EURO) for 2 nights and would say that it was disappointing stay. At first you cannot regulate temperature in your room it was very hot, even with the open window and regulator was broken! I had a couch in my room I think this couch maybe 20 years old and it has few big dirty spots so we didn't want to seat on it, the bed had a simply piece of porolon dropped on the matrace, not normal overmatrace! There was a phone near bed you can see dust layer on it! They must do something with cleanliness. Next time definetly take another hotel and will not recommend to anyone.Its 3star value not more. The position of hotel is very good, its close to the centrum.

I loved the location. Neat and has an excellent view. We were there during the Christmas Hols and things were shut everywhere food-wise but they whipped some nice lunches and dinners despite the holidays.

This trip was in dec-2011 (not available as an option below)

Rooms are nice and clean, up to typical Scandinavian standards. The hotel's upstairs bar sports an amazing view, but don't expect a cocktail menu. When I went, I had to show the bartender how to make a cocktail, but it was off-season. The rooms are very comfortable and you have access to all the usual things to expect in a hotel room: TV, good pressure shower, minibar and blinds and heavy curtains! The latter are essential in the area during summer as the midnight sun will keep unexpected travellers up all night. After a few nights of it, it loses its charm.....

Bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I went downstairs during the night and the staff was very nice (I asked for the wifi password as I couldn't sleep due to a bit too much caffein). Next day, the breakfast was magnificent as it always is. It gets busy and tables can take a bit to be cleared as the staff are always running around trying to make sure everyone's happy. Great coffee (if you like it black, as most Norwegians drink it like that). I recommend the pancakes!

I go here about once a year and trust me...this is the place to stay in Tromso!

Room Tip: The higher up, the better the view...try and get a room towards the sea!

Very good location. View from room was fantastic. Family room was in fact quite spacious. Even though outside was -10 C the room was nice and warm if not bordering hot. Could not get the coffee machine going so had to do with a kettle for teas or coffees.
Breakfast was ok. Domestic toaster to use at breakfast was a joke. Breakfast rather busy with passengers from the ships that use the hotel for overnight stays. Food ok and their is a variety for everyone's taste.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the water offer a magnificent view. They tend to be a bit noisy when the cruise ships b...
