“Great value and location”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

City Living Hotel is conveniently located in the center of Tromso. There's a supermarket, restaurants, bars, all sorts of sights etc. close to the hotel. We stayed in a double room with a small kitchenette. Room was spacious and clean and offered value for money in Norway. All the personnel that we met were always smiley and friendly. There was no room service (cleaning up the bathroom, making the bed) at least during our three day stay, but that was ok with our short stay.

For breakfast you can buy a voucher from the hotel to the next door restaurant Egon. We did that on one morning, but I have to say I preferred breakfast at the Cafe 4 Roser, because it tasted somehow fresher. Cafe also has a very nice atmosphere. Both restaurants are located next to the hotel.

All in all, City Living is a great hotel and I'll definitely return there on my next trip to Norway.

We spent one week at this hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. Very well located. And the staff is extremely helpful, always willing to provide the best service. No frills hotel, but definitely a good option.

Great self catering apartment / hotel. Everything nearby, supermarket, shops, airport, tourist information and good place for breakfast opposite. Very friendly reception. Highly recommend for short breaks or longer stay.

Room Tip: Room 404 is apparently slightly bigger room

Fantastic stay. Room was very large and included use of a laundry room free of charge. Hotel is less than ten minutes from the airport and is honestly within walking distance of all the sights, shops, restaurants and public transport. I would stay here again without hesitation.

For the third year I was now a guest to the City Living Hotel in Tromsö. It is the ideal retreat for your next Northern Light journey, Ideally located in the city center it offers clean rooms with small but well equipped kitchenettes. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Nearby you have plenty of possibilities to buy food and your other daily stuff, if you are not in the mood to cook your meal go and test ride local restaurants.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our apartment was extremely spacious with a fully equipped kitchen. Although there was no restaurant, we were allowed to wait for the departure of our Hurtigruten ship in the small lobby, and were kindly offered coffee and fruit.

Robert welcomed us and really went out of his way to make our stay pleasant. He even phoned for a taxi to take us to the airport the next day and gave a lot of additional information. The suites were spacious, spotless and really well equipped - having the kitchenette was great. The hotel is centrally located and we were able to walk around the city.
