We travelled to Tromso for the sites and stayed at Scandic Ishavshotel. The hotel is right next to the water so the rooms facing the harbour have great views. We even saw the Northern Lights from our window on our last night. The lobby is large and bright with plenty of places to sit. It's also warm in the hotel...

This hotel is modern, clean, pleasantly warm in a very cold place and conveniently situated for the departure of tours. I can also confirm all that was said on Tripadvisor before about the location, breakfast spread and friendliness of the staff. I would definitely stay here again!

Located on the harbour the location seemed perfect for all tours and boat trips that we took as they all departed from on front of the hotel. There were also great restaurants and shops in walking distance. It's a very busy hotel. There is a wide selection for breakfast. Lovely view of the fjord from the rooms.

The Scandic Ishavshotel is positioned very centrally in Tromso and walking distance to many attractions. Many tours (Northern Lights etc) list this as the meeting point, which makes it even more convenient!

Can confirm all that was said about the location, breakfast spread and friendliness of staff. Important: the rooms are clean and comfortable. Since we spent most of our time outside the room and hotel, we did not mind the fairly small room. Nice little extra: the floor heating in the bathroom and shower!

We stayed in this hotel 5 nights. Strategic position, comfortable room with an amazing view on the harbour, plush breakfast and buffet at dinner... maybe the price is higher than other accomodations but it's worth it!

The location couldn't be better. The hotel is located by the harbor looking over the wonderful edge of the city, near bars and restaurants. It's right across from the place most of the tours leave from. The facilities are excellent and the place is very well designed and furnished. Very cozy environment for a freezing city. Their breakfast is outstanding,...
