Room: Stayed 3 nights in a budget double room. Small comfortable room with wardrobe, desk, modern TV, mini bar, fridge, small dining setting, tea/coffee making facilities. Free wi-fi with good connection. No safe facilities were provided in the room.
Sleep Quality: Very comfortable double bed (doona only provided). The room was quiet and dark for sleeping. The morning light shone through as the curtains are not full length however this was not unpleasant.
Bathroom: Decent size bathroom although the shower size is actually very small (shower only, no bath). The shower had very good water pressure with excellent hot water. Clean with plenty of clean linen and a selection of toiletries available in the room (although no face washer or bath mat).
Food: Excellent buffet b/fast is served in the restaurant area on the ground floor. Good selection of cereals, breads, cheeses, cold meats, fruit, together with 3 hot dishes (usually of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage). Tea and coffee, juices etc are available here all day. Restaurant advertise lunch packs and also serve dinner (of which I didn’t try).
Location: Very centrally located. Within a 5-10mins radius, you will find the Tromso cathedral, tourist information, major shopping centre, the main pedestrian shopping street Storgata, Rica Ishavshotel (where you can catch the bus to the airport and also Arctic Guide Services), local bus station, and many other shops.
Service: Most staff were excellent and happily gave their time to advise on places of interest. Hotel definitely has a personal feel. English seems widely spoken and understood.
Value for money: 3 nights was NOR $3,885 for one including b/fast. Whilst expensive to other places around the world, this was competitive for Norway (the 25% tax does not help).
Other: Whilst small, the rooms are clean, comfortable and warm. Local staff, good food, terrific location and the most spectacular scenery in the surrounding areas. Would highly recommend it as I really enjoyed staying here.
