When I arrived, I became disappointed because my room was small and too dark... but the reception was friendly and also the service was fairly well. Good wifi in room and fair breakfast. The location is good and you have access to bus and restaurants.

People at reception are very friendly and have good tips for local sightseeing. Rooms are basic but good. Breakfast includes everything you need to start your day right. Free wifi, tea and coffee throughout the day. We enjoyed our stay in Tromsø a lot.

The rooms are spacious and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful and has good knowledge of the city and the region. The front-desk is closed at night, but they have a key-box system for late arrivals. Breakfast is somewhat basic.

Stayed here for 1 night at the end of May. The location is great- right in the centre of Tromso and 5 minutes walk from the harbour. The airport bus stops nearby too. For Tromso the Skansen is a cheap hotel; I paid 775 NOK which works out at around £67. Staff were very friendly and speak perfect English. My... More

This hotel has everything you need, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and cosy, it had a nice big TV and a hot shower, and we were even lucky enough to have a balcony from which we saw the northern lights! The location is also great!

Third time in Skansen but prices had risen due to enlargement of the hotel yet we got the old, small, smelly, unpainted, smoking room that has been the same way since opening. You are better off paying the same price and receiving better quality when booking at one of the big hotels in Tromso. Coffee was good at breakfast and... More

This hotel's location is very good, just a few minutes walk from the center and the main attractions in Tromso. Our room was nice, with free, fast Wi-Fi. The reception closes at 23, therefore be sure to inform them in advance in case you need a late check-in. The staff was nice, helpful, and professional. Breakfast was ok, but nothing... More
