Very clean, cosy, with wonderful views of the fjords, mountains and Arctic Cathedral 😊 The breakfast is very good and a lot of varieties are available. Staff very helpful. Also, the hotel is very central and the flybussen stops in front of the hotel directly from the airport, which takes around 15 minutes. Best place to stay at Tromso.

We had a lovely room with a view of the Hurtigruten terminal. Nice lobby and a friendly bar on the second floor ( although couldn't make a decent cup of tea). It's very central so just a walk to various shops and restaurants. Also the ferries ( which depart like buses to all around the area) are very close which...

I stayed for 4 nights in March 2017.. First and foremost this hotel is set in the most beautiful surroundings.. The views are incredible and the view from my room (Junior Suite) was unbeatable. The position of this hotel is such that most bedrooms will have great views. This hotel is situated close to the meeting points for most tours...

No much to say that others did not say before. The location is very convenient and I enjoyed the views to the sea from the room and the main hall. There is an express bus to/from airport running quite often, and taxis are not expensive anyway. The breakfast was spectacular. i went for salads, herrings and vegetarian omelettes, but there...

For the price and location the hotel is good for pick ups and meet ups for tours in and around Tromso. Although the hotel site advertises airport shuttle. They do not operate a shuttle for guests. Transportation from the airport can be tricky based on the information given by the hotel. We purchased our tickets in advance for the shuttle...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights from 10-13th March and I loved it so much that I can't wait to return one day. After scouring the reviews and doing extensive research we booked a superior room and emailed the hotel kindly requesting a high floor with a fjord view. We were in room 456 on the 4th...

Service minded and friendly staff. I have lived here when working in Tromsø for a couple of months at a time and I can really recommend the hotel. Great breakfast. The restaurant is also good when it comes to seafood. Meat dishes varies. The hotel itself is situated right on the harbour with Hurtigruta and other ships outside your hotel...

A great place to spend a weekend. Ask for a room with a view over the harbour, it's so wonderful, Great clean room, with high quality beds. Bathroom was small, but clean with all the needed amenities. The small fridge and the possibilities to iron and to make coffee was a plus. I would rate this hotel with five stars...

Stayed three nights on the fourth floor - paid the extra for the premium room and I recommend it! I'm not sure what the other views are but the premiums were amazing. Water view - bridge view - fjellheisen view - all from our room. Stared out the window so much! The bed was comfortable - heated floors in the...
