Amazing Hotel
The hotel was amazing and had a view directly over the water. The breakfast is AMAZING. There was a super large variety of breads, fruits, juices, meats, among other foods. There are quite a few shops and pubs to patron within walking distance. We did not have a vehicle and had no issues finding/ getting to places around the hotel. It is also dark enough around the hotel to get Northern Lights pics. We took quite a few within 30m (100ish ft for us Americans). We hope to visit Tromsø again one day and will definitely be staying at this hotel.

Good hotel - recommended
The hotel was very clean and in good condition. The breakfasts were good and the location is great as was the sea view. The staff were also very helpful and pleasant. The only thing I would change was that there was no room service, but I don't think that is a common feature in Tromso.

Good central site for visiting Tromso. Bus from airport stops outside the hotel. Many northern lights tours arrange their pick ups here too. Breakfast was plentiful and varied.

This was such a lovely experience. The staff were wonderful. Our room was comfortable, with a beautiful view, and a heated bathroom floor in Norway is just heavenly. We plan to come back. And we will stay here again!

Failure to “understand”.
Over-all OK hotel. After 2 of 3 day stay we attempted to return to USA because our home was on target for Hurricane Ian. We wanted to either get home or be closer as hurricane threatened. We beieved hotel would release us from last night charges as we did not stay. NOPE - we had to pay for a night not used. There was an unannounced concert that restricted movement to and from hotel. They had 100% occupancy and surely filled our room last night. It is a U.S. standard if you stay first night of your reservation, you can leave and not be charged. Point is, time not used is not charged. Yes, this is not USA. If we all note , all airlines re-aligned their open policies toward flight changes. They are beginning to prosper without over-bearing restrictions. I will avoid these hotels and any booking agency that thinks “we gotcha” is a business strategy.
