The Radisson Blu Hotel is perfectly situated within Tromso to gain access to all amenities.
From our arrival to Tromso Airport, the shuttle bus drops you off exactly outside the Radisson.
Hotel staff at reception were very polite, we didn't have to wait as there were 3 reception staff working the front desk.
Reception explained very clearly were our room was situated and if we found any issues to immediately telephone down.
I had booked room 508, a superior room with fantastic views across the fjord. With the bridge located on the left hand side of the window, The Arctic Cathedral immediately in front and the Mountain/Tram car system to our right.
Of a night time, we used to sit with the curtains fully open taking in the fantastic views.
The room itself lacked shelving space, that was the only down side. We basically lived out of our suitcases, only hanging up trousers, shirts etc.
There's a free safe and free internet - Both very easy and straight forward to use.
The room is heated all day/night, you can control via a mounted wall unit. Beds are very comfortable, The Radissson use two single quilts on a kingsize bed - I had no issues with this set up and always woke up refreshed from a great nights sleep.
Breakfast - Sorry guys! 4 out of 10. Even though it had a running buffet style breakfast area, the food was always luke warm. The toaster worked when it wanted too and even when it did, only 2 out of the 4 chutes worked.
The Radisson own Yonas Pizza's, it would have been nice as a guest of the Radisson to get some sort of concession when purchasing from there as the prices were very expensive.
"Maybe that's something The Radisson Blu may consider if they read this comment/review?"
Overall, we stayed at the Radisson for 7 nights. Would we stay there again - Yes, but not for a weeks stay. I would definitely use it as a bridge stop, using it if I were flying through or using the ferries that berth directly infront of the Radisson.
Many thanks to everyone concerned at The Radisson, we had a lovely time with just a few hickups. 9 out of 10. Breakfast let you down.
