We stayed here on a trip to see the aurora. I booked with a little trepidation as some of the reviews of this hotel are quite scathing, but in reality, it is what it is advertised to be, a 3 star hotel. Having stayed in other 3 star Norwegian hotels, this was no different. A basic hotel, not glitzy, not ritzy, but providing a warm room, comfy bed, not a huge choice of food at breakfast but all good enough to eat. The staff were all very friendly, helping us with bookings, making us coffee and so on. Although on a map this hotel looks a little bit out of the centre of Tromso, it is such a small city that it doesn't take long to get anywhere, 10 minutes walk to the harbour front and where the aurora trips leave from. the rooms at the back of the hotel have good views of the water front, the higher you go, the better the view. Sadly we were given a room at the front which we found a bit noisy, I am sure they would have moved us had we asked, but simply could not be bothered!
