Scandic Ishavshotel
Ranked #2 of 18 Hotels in Tromso
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 11 June 2017

Scandic Ishavshotel is a very good hotel in Tromso, Norway in the best possible location. The quality is very good regarding the rooms and the available facilities. What is worth-mentioning is the breakfast, the variety and the quality of the offered foods. Freshly-squizzed orange juice is a very pleasant surprise in this northernmost spot of Europe. One thing that should be taken care of is the cleaning of the floor in the rooms and the chairs in the dinning room. Overall, the hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Reserve rooms early for better price and ask for sea/bridge view.

Hotel with nice atmosphere and perfect location. Short distance to good restaurants and City Center. Nice view to the boats. A little bit small family rooms but best breakfast we have ever had in a Norwegian hotel. Will definitely stay here next time we visit.

Located right in the heart of the city, directly in the harbour. Nice modern design in both lobby and rooms. Lovely view into the harbour and an absolutely brilliant buffet breakfast. All in all - probably the best address in Tromso.

This is a great hotel. Beautiful location.
Everything is nearby. Clean large rooms that have everything you need. The breakfast buffet had a lot of variety.
The hotel is located right by where you can get on a Hurtigruten ship.

We stayed one night prior to going on a Hurtigruten ship. The room was what one would expect for a hotel of this standard but the view was stunning. I could not get over the light at night but the black out curtains were excellent. The breakfast was very good along with our dinner in evening. Just the drinks were very expensive but that is Norway. We could see the ship coming into berth from the hotel and could easily walk with our luggage to the boat.

Room Tip: Any room facing east.

It is very practical to stay at our hotel when you are taking the Hurtigruten boat since it is only a 2 minute walk :-)
hope you enjoyed your stay with us!
