Lovely big apartment with cooking facilities and fridge in the town centre. Nice to have a proper chair to sit in. Good views of the town and surrounding mountains and the higher floors minimise any street noise. Friendly and helpful receptionist. By Norweigan standards, good value for money. Recommended

I don't think this hotel is up to its Tripadvisor rating. We were on the fifth floor and the lift was broken. According to earlier reviews it had been that way for some time though management had said it would be repaired in a few days. Well, it wasn't. Thank goodness hotel staff carried our larger bags because these two over-60's might not have made it alive.
There was also an earlier comment about water running all over the floor from the shower, "which was attended to immediately". I sincerely doubt that because the shower enclosure is very poorly designed with insufficient run off to the drain, poor door closure and no hob. It's a design issue.
The rooms themselves are actually very small for an "apartment" and we struggled to have access to our bags as there wasn't enough space to unpack. All in all, pretty uncomfortable.
So why have I rated it 3 stars?
It's well located and relatively cheap (for Norway).
We had a pretty good time in Tromso so are spreading the love.
I would research pretty hard to try to find somewhere better next time.

Dear guest from Sydney. Thank you for your informative feedback, it is very important to us to have our guests opinions so we know what to improve. In may this year we have got a brand new elevator and it took two weeks to install the new motor. We are sorry if this made your stay difficult, and we wish we could avoid this issue to all guests. The elevator is now working as normal. About the shower drains we are doing our best in improving the doors of the shower so the water will not run outside. We hope you will return to Tromsø someday so we can make a better impression and give you a great stay, which is our goal at City Living. Best regards, City Living Hotel Tromsø

Well located to all sights. Very convenient if going off on a Hurtigruten cruise - 3 blocks from the terminal. Hotel is one block walk from the airport bus stop. Staff was helpful & friendly. English spoken by all. Room was clean and well appointed with full mini kitchen.

For our first (and surely not last) visit to Tromsø we were looking for a decently priced and presented hotel were to rest for the first night after travelling.

City Living gave us much more: an unexpectedly large and functional apartment at the 6th floor, overlooking the city centre and bay at a time light is never in shortage; lots of big windows to watch evening revellers from (and sills where to stretch onto); comfortable bedroom, spacious shower, all needed kitchen appliances. If it hadn't been the national celebration day on the subsequent day (I assume that's why room prices went so up so quickly closing up on our outbounds flight) we'd have very gladly prolonged our stay.

Last but not the least: the very friendly and smiley receptionist Frida was so keen on making up for the lift being out of order that I had to insist to carry my own trolley. Good luck on your law finals, Frida, and thank you again for your kindness.

This was a great reasonably priced placed to say. As it was an apartment, you could cook basic food in there rather than have to spend loads of money eating out - don't underestimate how expensive Norway is! The heating worked a treat and the bed was possibly the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The only down side was that the shower door didn't really close am because it was powerful it flooded the bathroom. Other than that, a great stay! Also, good wifi for tracking the northern lights!

We stayed here for 4 nights in March 2014. There are many positives about this place including it's location,reasonably priced for Tromso, the wonderful friendly staff and our spacious room which included a kitchenette. A supermarket is conveniently located about 100 metres up the road, which sells pretty much everything you need. Robert on the front desk was also very helpful and assisted us with booking an afternoon of dog sledding. If we ever visited beautiful Tromso again, we would not hesitate to stay at City Living.

Room Tip: We had a room upstairs which was quiet with views onto the street.

A good localization, clean, comfortable. The equipment in the room is perfect to be autonomous for food (and to cook it), what allows you to save money as restaurants are expensive in Norway (at least compared to France). You can wash and dry your clothes in the basement of the hotel. You can't hear noises from the street and the street is calm. I had a great view on the mountain and on the fjord from my windows. Several supermarkets are close to the hotel. It's easy to find a bus close to the hotel to go to every places in the city or its district.You are warmly welcome by all the staff who gave me advice several times. The price is low for Tromso, and the quality you can have for this is very high.
I spent one week there, walking / skiing in the mountains around and I have to confess that I was happy after a day spent climbing to find a warm place to recover.
When I go back to Tromso (as I will go back as this place is so great for nature lovers, but also by its own dynamism, nice people, many students, sportive people ...), I will go to this hotel again, for sure.
