We stayed here after our flight from Tromso to Gatwick was cancelled. It's a good looking hotel and the room was quite nice. But, as became typical of Norway on this trip, the service wasn't good and communication was poor. Dinner service at the Roast restaurant closed early (9pm) and the service food was slow and not good quality. Not...

I have been to Tromso a couple of times and stayed in different hotels, I feel that Scandic Ishavshotel is the best to stay, the location, the service and the view is absolutely stunning towards the cathedral and bridge side(harbour facing). If you are lucky, you can just see northern lights outside of the window! The breakfast is really impressive...

Probably the best location in Tromso. Centrally located to old town and sights. Very nice hotel fronting beautiful bay - saw aurora perfectly from room balcony. We found excellent room for 3. Meals were good, staff were very nice and helpful. Front desk staff were really good, especially Segrid (SP). All in all, was a wonderful stay. However, hotel needed...

My husband, niece and I stayed for four nights at the Scandic Ishavshotel and had a wonderful time! We stayed in Superior rooms with sea views which we thought was well worth the additional investment to have such a beautiful view. Occasionally a very large cruise ship would dock in front of the hotel, however as we were not there...

We were lucky enough to see Northern Light all of a sudden from our large window in the room, so make sure you book harbor facing room (not a big difference from the other side of the rooms facing the city) Location - 5 mins from ferry (by Hurtigruten), close to restaurants, and shops Room - rooms facing the harbour...

Booked this place not considering it's location and it was great! Very central and easy walking distance to everything even the bridge if you follow along the harbour and not the way google maps takes you, it's a shorter walk. Room had a great view of the harbour however the bed sheets could have done with being changed at least...

We travelled to Tromso for the sites and stayed at Scandic Ishavshotel. The hotel is right next to the water so the rooms facing the harbour have great views. We even saw the Northern Lights from our window on our last night. The lobby is large and bright with plenty of places to sit. It's also warm in the hotel...

This hotel is modern, clean, pleasantly warm in a very cold place and conveniently situated for the departure of tours. I can also confirm all that was said on Tripadvisor before about the location, breakfast spread and friendliness of the staff. I would definitely stay here again!

Located on the harbour the location seemed perfect for all tours and boat trips that we took as they all departed from on front of the hotel. There were also great restaurants and shops in walking distance. It's a very busy hotel. There is a wide selection for breakfast. Lovely view of the fjord from the rooms.
