I stayed there for three nights in a single room. Good location, excellent and helpful staff, great breakfast, good wifi, spacious room but could have been cleaner, good value for money, a bit old-fashioned, would stay again.

The hotel has a great location, situated on the main high street; everything you have to see or tours to organise are within walking distance. Airport is just 15 min by bus/taxi (would recommend the taxi as it's almost the same price/if you not travelling alone, and driving you right to the hotel). Lovely, cosy little hotel with friendly and...

Reasonably priced accommodation in Tromsø is very limited. This is one of the better options. Location is good, in the city centre. The facilities are quite basic, and the rooms could do with some freshening up, but if you are going to be out and about doing tours, etc. why do you care? The choice at breakfast is quite good,...

I stayed here for three nights in a single room and I loved my little stay here! It's really central for much less than the big chain hotels charge. Yes it's fairly basic but I can't think of anything I needed that it didn't have. It's about 7/8 mins walk to the radisson blu or skandic hotel which is were...

When I arrived, I became disappointed because my room was small and too dark... but the reception was friendly and also the service was fairly well. Good wifi in room and fair breakfast. The location is good and you have access to bus and restaurants.

People at reception are very friendly and have good tips for local sightseeing. Rooms are basic but good. Breakfast includes everything you need to start your day right. Free wifi, tea and coffee throughout the day. We enjoyed our stay in Tromsø a lot.

The rooms are spacious and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful and has good knowledge of the city and the region. The front-desk is closed at night, but they have a key-box system for late arrivals. Breakfast is somewhat basic.

Stayed here for 1 night at the end of May. The location is great- right in the centre of Tromso and 5 minutes walk from the harbour. The airport bus stops nearby too. For Tromso the Skansen is a cheap hotel; I paid 775 NOK which works out at around £67. Staff were very friendly and speak perfect English. My...
