This is a very basic hotel, but clean and the staff were nice and helpful. It's nice they have a breakfast buffet everyday. We did in fact see the northern lights right from our room. Ask for a room facing the lake. It's just a quick drive into the city, but cabs are very expensive, so if you plan on... More

Attended this venue for a conference. Has very good sized rooms with views of the water and mountains. Good catering and support of the meeting, I can recommend this hotel. I am tole is a good cost effective option for a meeting. Bus service from city centre 3.4klms for 50kr

Clean, quiet. Room is quite big comparing to all others in Norway. Corner to sit or watch tv, fridge in room. Bed is a bit too low quality but not old. I could use akso the softnerfrom the second bed which solved my issue. Great breakfast. Good and positive check-in and out. Recommended.

Due to bad weather we took refuge in a hotel instead of camping and we were pleasantly surprised by the good facilities of Sydspissen hotel in Tromsø - the location is great, personell was very friendly, wifi was good, breakfast was excellent and the price was very very reasonable. We really loved our stay!

After taking the Flybussen, we took the bus to Sydspissen from the stop near Radisson Blu. Then from the bus stop, it took at least 5 min to drag our luggage over the snow-covered road to the hotel, which was a little difficult. Once there, we had few complaints. Staff was always friendly. The triple room was clean, with comfy... More

We wanted to see the northern lights and found this hotel. It was cheaper than we found anywhere else in the city so we booked. We were around 17.00 in the hotel and the lady of the reception helped us immediately. In around 5 - 10 minutes we had our key. Our room was good. A little dated, but good... More

The woman at check in was very friendly. Probably the most talkative person I've encountered in Norway! Rooms have a weird layout for travelling couples but after moving the separate beds it was fine. It's not luxurious but has everything you need for a short stay. It can get a bit noisy during the nights. Breakfast has extensive! Made me... More

The room was spacious enough. However, towels and bed sheet might not be clean enough(I am comparing with previous hotels we stayed in Norway) Breakfast was nothing to be mentioned. You get what you paid. However, since this hotel is a bit far from city center, the location does provide a great view for the light! We can even notice... More
