We were a large group coming to Tromsø to experience this lovely city and tours. Hotel is centrally located and offers a great service as very well kept rooms, very good breakfast with multi choices that can satisfy all palates, free coffee and got drinks at lobby all day long and lovely and friendly staff. Good job

My partner and I stayed here on our honeymoon. Room was lovely with a great view over the harbour and looking across the bridge on to the Polar Cathedral. Clean, roomy and heated floor in bathroom. Great breakfast.

Located centraly, spacious and clean room, great shower, friendly staff but the best is the breakfast buffet with plenty of cold and warm dishes and local food to explore. Bed was a bit too soft and the elevator made some noise

Outstanding front desk staff, great rooms, and a lovely breakfast. Front desk staff were very helpful with all of our questions and helped us pick where to visit. Would recommend staying with Scandic as their level of service is all good.

Wow what a breakfast. I had scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon and caviar. Certainly set me up for the day!. The front foyer had hot water with coffee, tea milk etc which was free any time of the day. The room was comfortable with a good shower. It is all anyone needs.

The room was clean, with towels changed every day, but during all 4 nights the bed linen has not been changed even once. The breakfasts were...

Having been ' Bumped' from a long standing booking at Radison Blu, this hotel was given to us after a long days travel so we started off being less than pleased. But we found the room excellent, the breakfast good and the position ideal for our day in Tromso. We didn't use the restaurant in the evening because it was...

Tromso ... The hotel is in the centre of the city, on the main street. Easy connection from airport (we used a taxi, which was 200Nek, but the Flybussen stops outside (90Nek adults, 40 senior).
