Brilliant four day stay here celebratiing a 60th birthday. Location, views and breakfasts all just as good as previously described....stayed in a junior suite on floor five with marvellous views of the harbour and the cathedral. (Also rendered us up close and personal with Hurtigruten ships and the beleaguered Poseidon ...that was quite diverting). .
Ate once in the evening at Roast...that was probably enough, there are some excellent restaurants about the centre of town.
Lovely stay, Tromso well worth the journey in summer .....thank you.

Room Tip: Harbour view amazing but comes with harbour activity....into the small hours.

We were in awe when entering our room. Directly facing the ocean front and Ishavskatedralen over the fjord. With a view like that you don´t need anything else.

Breakfast was probably one of the best I have had- congratulations to the kitchen staff!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the docks.

Nice and clean hotel with excellent location. We especially enjoyed the breakfast - lots to choose from for example freshly squeezed orange juice and barista bar. We stayed for two nights but there were no cleaning, which I mentioned at checkout and as a response I didn't even get an apology.

Harbour view was a bit over advertised. Cruise ship docked to the harbour had its engines on idle throughout the night.
