“Excellent value and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

One of the hotels with best value in Tromso! Convenient location (although Tromso is not that big), spotless, comfy and modern bedroom/ bathroom/ kitchenette facilities. Room heater is powerful so it's always warm enough in the room. Very pleased with the room with a good view of the fjord!

Receptionists were extremely efficient, helpful and friendly, and can be contacted easily via the room phone.

We booked this apartment in Tromso for a winter break to seek the northern lights.

Tromso is generally quite an expensive destination (although definitely worth the visit), so being able to cook meals in the apartment helped save some money compared to eating out all the time. There are several supermarkets nearby. Rimi is the closest, and Eurospar is also very close by; which seemed the biggest of those nearby. There's a little fishmongers in the centre too. The kitchen in the apartment had all the basics needed to cook full meals in the evening.

The apartment was fairly compact, but well laid out to make the most of the space. As such, there was plenty enough room for the two of us.

We had no cause to contact the staff during our stay, but they were helpful at check in and check out.

The location is great, it's very close to the airport bus stop and conveniently located near the centre of Tromso; most city centre restaurants and attractions were within walking distance. The location was generally fairly quiet at night.

A general observation in Tromso is that the weather seems to be very changeable; for those visiting to seek the northern lights it seemed best to stay flexible and make bookings for excursions at fairly short notice once it was reasonable clear what the weather was doing.

Location in the heart of town makes it easy to walk.
The kitchen meant that we could have our own breakfast, in our own time. It was actually very well equipped!
The bathroom was small, clean and practical.
The beds were firm but comfortable.
As we were staying for a longer period, the larger room gave us space to breath.
The office staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed looking inwards, away from the road. Our room was quiet but stay away from the stairs (th...

I never usually write reviews whilst still on holiday but the hotel staff have been so unbelievably helpful with arranging tours and just about everything you need to know. She goes beyond the call of duty. Well done Frida.

The location is perfect, it has kitchen in the room with appliances which is really great. The staff is very friendly. The price doesn't include breakfast, but with the kitchen you can prepare yourself within a couple of minutes.

We were there for 5 days last week & had a great stay
Location was perfect for everything required as a tourist, restuarents, shopping, pick up points for almost all guided tours, taxi & bus stand....was within 5 mins walk
Everybody who works there are very helpful
The rooms have a small kitchen with required utensils & that's a huge advantage!!
We did a last minute booking this time & we are very happy about our choice.
I would love to stay there again!!
Cheers

We picked City Living Hotel for a 3 day break in Tromso based on price (which, let's be honest, can be prohibitive in Norway), location and reviews. We weren't disappointed.

The location is second to none. Okay, Tromso isn't exactly big, but we could be at the dockside in 5 minutes, and the main shopping street in 2 minutes. Restaurants are all within 5 minutes walk as well, as is the Tourist Info office.

The staff were helpful on check in and gave us plenty of tips about places to eat.

The room was spacious, and it was great to have a kitchen area where we could make our own sandwiches in preparation for days and nights out.

Free Wi-Fi was very welcome.

There is no restaurant/breakfast, but the hotel sells a voucher for the restaurant across the street which does superb buffet breakfasts.

I would love to go back to Northern Norway in the summer, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay at City Living again.
