Pros Staff was friendly and welcoming. The location is a nice downhill walk to the town centre and a short walk to Tromso Polar Museum, Perspektivet Museum and The Art Museum of Northern Norway. Also within walking distance to Polaria and Macks Brewery. Breakfast was quite adequate tho rather basic. The view from our room across the water and of...

Stayed here for 3 nights, a nice hotel. Warm tidy rooms, and the bathroom has a heated floor- a nice touch on those cold days. It probably isnt the best hotel out there, but it was clean and tidy, and with Norwegian prices in mind- very good value! Also all rooms come with breakfast in the morning- its a little...

Went to Tromso for two nights in early February in the hope of catching the Northern Lights and this was the only hotel I could find at a price I was willing to pay. It is quite basic but provided you don't want fruit they do a great breakfast, the room was clean and comfortable and the staff were really...

We stayed at the Skansen from30th November to 4th December 2012 and found it excellent. It isn't the poshest place in the world, but as I've said on here many times, you get what you pay for, and by Norwegian standards the cost is very reasonable. It was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfy and the en-suite shower was...

http://www.skansenhotell.no/en/index.html we contacted the hotel directly through their Mail form got a timely reply ...

We got put into an apartment 'for 3 people', the third bed was just a old and shabby sofa not even sofa bed. The apartment was generally dark and tired looking. I can't review the rooms in the actual hotel but do not stay in the apartments attached to the hotel. We ended up staying at City Living, which was...

Offers a good price for a very reasonable hotel. Rooms are small but clean. Nice and newly renovated bathrooms. But they need to do something about the shower flooding up the whole bathroom floor. Appreciate that the staff went out of their way to get us early breakfast after we told them that we have to leave by 6.15am. Location...

The Skansen Hotel was below par even for a budget hotel. On arrival at 11.30pm there was no-one in the hotel to greet us. We had to call a number and wait 30 mins in the freezing cold for someone to arrive and let us in. The fact that they close the doors at 11.00 was not relayed to us...

We stayed at the apartments run by the hotel rather than the hotel itself. We had a first floor apartment which was great as we could see the Arctic cathedral out of the bedroom window, albeit between two houses! When we arrived, the original apartment we were given smelt of fish so we asked to move and they were very...

I stayed here for 4 nights after rejecting a studio apartment in another block run by this hotel. The studio was simply awful - very poky and small, and nowhere to put away your clothes! Also, it was up the street where the footpath (such as it was) was terribly icy and dangerous. Having paid on arrival, it was a...
