One of the best hotel breakfast buffets I've been on. Huge varities in both cold and warm food. They have fresh pressed juice, fresh made omelettes, their own barissta and even macrons. Also great for vegetarians. That said, it costs 200kr, a bit expensive breakfast if u ask me. Great experience!

We had room 654 and it was lovely. Room facing sea with view of mainland mountain and cable car. We enjoyed the view of heavy snow falling everyday with open window. We had great 6 nights chasing the Northern light even when the snow never stop during the days and night. The Northern Shots office and meeting place is just...

We spent a couple of nights here and loved the location and views from our hotel room. The hotel is clean and comfortable and obviously recently renovated. We felt the price was very reasonable and would stay there again. The only reason we are not giving it 5 stars is because the fridge in the room wasn't working and the...

A lot to like about this hotel; It is busy and visitors mingle with those on business conferences, although it never felt crowded. It is modern and clean and the reception and breakfast rooms are both spacious and airy. Reception were very friendly and always gave time to answer what have must have been very mundane questions or in my...

Steps from the Hurtigruten pier, walking distance to everything in Tromso, what more could you want! Also, easy walk to tour meeting places, the airport bus is outside the hotel, and the bus to Narvik is located 10 minutes walk away. I upgraded my room to the harbor view, and it was wonderful to look out any time of the...

Stayed here for a few days. Centrally located with easy accessible to most attraction, as the town of Tromso is not big. Most attractions and restaurants are within few minutes walk. The hotel is quite busy as there are conference going on one after another. Reception is friendly. You have to carry your own luggage to your room while they...

This hotel has the best location in Tromsø. The rooms are small, but clean and nice. Beds are very comfortable. Unfortunately minibar was empty upon arrival. Breakfast is good. Service is good. Note that Tromsø is short on hotel rooms - and this is the most popular hotel. Therefore, book in good time before your visit.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The room had wall to wall windows which allowed us to see the harbor anytime. It was great to watch the boats come and go. The heated floor in the bathroom was lovely after coming back from a Northern Lights Tour, dog sledding, or even a walk around town in the snow....
