“Winter stay”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Excellent location, just off water front, clean rooms, friendly staff, good food. We stayed for two nights, very little time is spent in the hotel so it was ideal for our needs. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors as more likely to have good view and see northern lights.

Average Radisson Hotel in the city center. Nice service, functional but rather small room and bathroom, nice breakfast. Nice view over the fjord. Ok value for money. Close to everything in the city center

Great location in downtown Tromso practically on the waterfront. 2 mins walk to the Tourist Information Office and maybe 1 minute more to the main shopping street in Tromso. The hotel has 2 wings (two separate buildings actually) linked by an enclosed walkway on the 2nd? floor. Try to get a room facing the waterfront in the newer building if you can. These rooms offer the better views. The staff were great, buffet breakfasts were also very good. Also try the pizzas for Yonas next door, a very short walk from reception (good thing in winter) and reasonably priced (for Norway) good food. If you are dumb enough to hire a car (like us) they offer on site parking (in the basement) for a fee. Warning, the parking spaces are very tight and getting into and out of the parking garage is a little tricky, but better than parking on the street (which also costs money everywhere in Tromso).

Got some sort of good deal from Radisson for summer getaway rate. Well when we arrived there during July it feels like just Spring, no nothern lights but instead midnight sun. We were assigned a room towards Tromso town/hill/Airport and we could see planes landing, I assume our rate were not qualified for the waterfront side. The room is a bit small with typical Scandinavian design furnitures, bathroom very clean and light.

Breakfast was rich in selection. Actually I saw some well-known Swedish football coach sitting at the same table, there were having an away match in Norwegian premier league and stayed in the same hotel.

The location is also great (I know the town size is small but anyways) it is close to everything you need there.

I'm not honestly sure what people who've written negative reviews, were expected from this hotel. We were greeted warmly on our arrival and given a free room upgrade but I'm sure we'd have been happy even with the standard room we had booked. In my experience city centre hotels are always small but this is fine as we don't spend much time in there anyway! Our room here though was spacious and offered an absolutely fantastic view across the water to the Arctic Cathedral and the mountains beyond. The decor is quite vivid so if orange isn't your colour, you might find it a little bright! Despite the cold temperatures outside and the big windows (affording us this fantastic view!), our room was always warm and cosy.

Breakfast was ample and varied - full English, continental meats, fish (mackeral etc), fruit, muffins, tea, coffee...what more could you want to set you up for a day exploring the Arctic circle?

There is a sauna, couple of pieces of gym equipment and a relaxation area on the tenth floor which also has fantastic views - even from within the sauna so you can sit and watch the snow as you sweat! My only slight disappointment was that there are two separate saunas for men and women...travelling as a couple it would have been more pleasant to be able to sit together and relax. I understand why you might have different rooms given that I suppose traditionally you wear only a towel in a sauna but I'd rather have to don a swim suit and sit with my husband when on a holiday together.

As I say it's a small point and our stay at this hotel was great - we even saw the Aurora on our final night. I'd definitely recommend the Radisson Blu as a base for exploring Tromso and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Higher floors looking over the Arctic Cathedral offer stunning views.

We had a compact room facing the harbour; modern décor, breakfast with adequate choices, efficient reception, airport bus stopping right in front of the hotel. Just one weird thing that the TV was mounted beside the bed instead of in front. There was actually an exposed conduit on the wall in front, I think perhaps that wall could not take the loading of the big TV so they had to put it on the other wall instead? Anyhow, nice hotel to stay in. A little expensive compared to the others in the city, but we had a very good deal booking online so it’s good value for us!

Somehow this hotel manages to look a lot more attractive on the web than it is in reality. This is common, but I have to admit I was disappointed when i arrived to my room which was the size of a shoebox. They were nice and changed my room to a larger one. Good breakfast. I would stay again but only if the room was a larger size.
