“Average but comfortable hotel with lovely welcoming staff”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We had two nights here in January. The room was much more compact than the Thon at Harstat, but as one might expect for a small city. The room was clean and very comfortable , if rather cosy. Breakfast was reasonable and plentiful. ( not as good as in Harstat ) The staff were so friendly and helpful ... "Thank you all" . They made up for any lack of room space.
It's a good 10 minute walk from the harbour side but reasonably central in the city. I found the hotel to be quite quiet; I would be the first to complain about noise!! Egon restaurant across the road was very busy on a Friday night.
I score the room as average based on the bedroom space, breakfast and the price paid ( around £130 night)
Tromso is a good location to purchase seal skin boots and jackets.

The hotel looked very new, it was stylish,clean and modern. Same goes for the hotelroom,with a comfy bed,and a nice bathroom. The standard double room was spacious enough for 2 persons. The only negative thing was that the room was quite warm,and we couldnt open the window at night,beacuse the room was facing the mainstreet,and there was a lot of noise/traffic.

The employees in the reception was very friendly and helpfull,we got to check out 30 minutes later,because we wanted to watch the olympics:)

The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had,with a wide selection of pastries,bread,eggs,fruit,cereal,juice,coffee,hot chocolate etc. You could even make waffles,and they were sooo good!!

The hotel had a great location,with just a couple of minutes walk to the city centre.

I would deff stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room thats not facing towards any streets.

Stayed here for 4 nights which comes with my local northern lights package (in Jan 2014). It's in a good location within just 3 mins back to the shopping mall and almost everything else. My room faces the back rather than street thus it was very quiet for me. The room was rather stuffy for me given that the heater was hold and can't change much of the temperature. However, I was able to open the window to cool the room down a bit.

Breakfast at the hotel is wonderful and with lots of varieties. Room is quite decent and bed is comfortable. Staff in general is very helpful and cheerful except for the guy working at night shift who is a little on the rude side and not very friendly. Free wi-fi in the hotel and Nespresso at lobby.

In Norway, there is no problem communicating in English as almost everyone speaks perfect English (I was actually very surprised). Recommend to stay here if you happen to be in Tromso.

Room Tip: See if you can stay at the upper floor and perhaps away from the street view in order to have more q...

6 of us stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We had booked three double rooms but at the last minute changed this to 2 triple rooms. To my surprise we all ended up in one room as we arrived late our first night and the hotel was fully booked! I initially thought that I had misheard the receptionist but apparently not. We ended up in what seemed like a family room with two twin bed, two sofa beds and a camp bed. It worked out fine for one night as we all get on really well but one bathroom between 6 meant a slow morning for showers etc. The staff genuinely seemed sorry for the mix-up and had it all sorted out the next morning. The rooms themselves were pretty big and clean although our room just never seemed warm enough.

Plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner at the restaurant was good too. If you are looking for a fairly cheap and filling lunch you could take advantage of the pizza buffet. It was about £11 for as much salad and pizza as you wanted.

Reception staff were very helpful and pointed out the best places to see the Northern lights.

Apart from the first night mix up we had a good stay and I would still go back to this hotel.

You can forget about getting any sleep if you get a room facing the street, and you can hear everyone who is talking in the halls or opening/closing doors to their own rooms. I ended up moving one of the mattresses to the bathroom, since it was impossible to change rooms. The hotel was fully booked due to a conference in Tromsø.

It does not matter if the facilities are good if you cannot get a decent night sleep.

I was in Tromsø for the film festival and booked the hotel for 2 nights just a week before and still got special price. It was very easy to go to film festival venues and sometimes I walked to my hotel inbetween films, which is very nice. Loved the variety of breakfast and had nice stay in my room.

This was a surprise as we booked this place in Tromso for 3 nights. The rooms were big and comfortable. The breakfast spread was very impressive at the Egon Restaurant.
Very good value for money. The tea/coffee machine at the lobby is ideal.

Room Tip: took a room for 3 adults
