We stayed in this hotel as an overnight whilst waiting for our next flight to Andenes. Hotel was pretty basic for the price but was fine for our needs. The wifi wouldn't connect for most of our stay. close to the airport so convenient for a layover.

I had a good, clean and comfortable room. The room had a giant TV screen. The breakfast was magnificent. A pleasant experience. The hotel is located in the centre of town, near public transport. The airport shuttle buses are 50 meters away, around the corner.

We actually booked for Thon Hotel Tromsø, but when we arrived a letter informed us that the hotel is closed between Christmas and 27th, but we would get a room at the Polar just across the street. I think it was a good exchange, as we enjoyed the rich breakfast buffet (expected less for the price), had nice staff and...

Initially we had booked the Thon Hotel Tromso but it was closed when we arrived and crossed the road to the Thon Polar as instructed on the door. This was not an issue for us as the two rooms booked were available. My granddaughters were very pleased with their twin room and we were pleased with our double that had...

Stayed here for 3 nights to see the northern lights. The room was clean, comfortable with enough space for clothes etc. Kettle with tea and coffee is provided in the room. The TV didn't work very well but I was happy to read a book in between activities or dinner. The breakfast is extraordinary and the best I have ever...

We booked a double room for 6 nights and it was a very pleasant stay. It was clean, welcoming and comfortable.

Stayed 2 nights here and would return. Rooms are fairly small but clean with comfortable beds and decent clothes hanging space for 2 nights.

A fairly budget hotel - clean, and comfortable but with quite small rooms. What was unexpected was the lavish breakfast buffet - the most varied I've seen anywhere. The choice of cooked breakfast, cereals, fruit both fresh and dried, fish, cheese, cold meats, breads, pastries... it beggared belief. All with a choice of numerous fruit juices, teas and coffees. Given...

While not a luxury hotel, it is located near the "strip" where all the bars / restaurants / stores are located making it very easy for you to pop out and wander around if you are looking for anything. They have an extensive breakfast that comes with the room, which we appreciated to stock up before heading out in the...
