I stayed at the Scandic for two days before joining a Fjords/ Northern lights cruise. Rooms were cosy but immaculate and functional. Hotel staff all seemed very young but we're lovely. The breakfast buffet alone is worth a visit; with an amazing selection of everything!!

We booked a family room for a family of 4 (kids aged 12 & 15). Hotel has a great location, right in the centre, but the room is far too small with zero space for storage. We were told at check out that our best option was to book a Junior Suite but all the online info said that these...

We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed here for our entire trip to Tromsø. It was the best hotel we encountered there. The design and decor are cool and funky. Staff was helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast was great. We had a few drinks at the bar and the wine was excellent- same prices as the...

Excellent hotel situated on the waterfront with a view of Ishav Cathedral and the lift to the mountains. Superb rooms and good service. The breakfasts were enormous and very delicious. The menus for other meals were not too good and very expensive.

Great location close to many restaurants and where the buses leave from for the various tours. We had a family room which was nice but small given all the luggage for a week away and a family of four. Breakfast is a very impressive in both range and quality of food. Also a large restaurant so plenty of seating. Only...

We stayed for 4 nights in Feb 2017 in this hotel which was recommended to us. Great location next to the harbour and 200 yards from the city centre so walking around Tromso is no problem even for overweight elderly brits like me. The hotel is typically scandanvian,stylish minimalism inside not very inspiring exterior, but the bedrooms are great we...

This hotell is situated in the city center of Tromsø with a great view to the "Ishavskatedral". Also a great location if you are going to experience the northern light - busses close by. The room was cosy and practical. Amazing breakfast! Great restaurant and bar - friendly staff.

Make sure you book a harbour view room is our top tip! Our room was warm, clean and had a magnificent picture window so you could sit and watch the world go by for hours. Some will complain about the noise from docked boats and their generators but you are on the water front! Breakfast was plenty full and as...
