We spent 3 nights here in early October. Reception staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. Our room on the 5th floor was very quiet (room 507) and clean and had good thermostatically adjustable heating. The apartment was quite spacious with a twin bed, TV, table two chairs, kitchen and ensuite.
There is a hairdryer but no iron in the apartment though one is available from reception. There is a laundry in the basement with 3 washing machines and a dryer as well as a few drying racks. Whilst this is less convenient than having a washer in the apartment, access to the machines was not a problem during our stay.
There is an oven but no microwave. Several of the crockery items were chipped or cracked. There are limited utensils for cooking with and some items lacking, such as no colander or strainer. Hence it required a bit of ingenuity to cook a meal with the utensils provided at times. Also no tea towel was provided. There was no sofa in the apartment ( there would be space for a smallish 2 seater) so you can choose between the kitchen chairs or bed.
Also the shower cubicle is narrow and not well sealed so water spreads onto the bathroom floor. A squeegee is provided to scape the water back into the shower and the bathroom floor dries fairly quickly.
Three grocery stores nearby, Rimi abourt 50m up the road, Eurospar about one block south on Storgata (which sells some hot food if you want a quick meal) and a Coop store about one block north on Stogata. If you have a car, secure parking available for a fee under the hotel or 50m up the road at the tunnel park.
Overall this apartment seems reasonably priced for Tromso, is in a good location, warm, quiet and adequate with friendly welcoming reception staff. If it was a bit better appointed I would have given it 4+ stars. We would stay here again.
