“Fabulous hotel...fabulous tour guide!”
Reviewed 19 April 2006

Have just returned from spending a couple of nights at the Hotel Bryggen over Easter. After 2 average nights in Oslo, Tromso and the hotel were fabulous.

The rooms are small but perfectly formed. The hot tub that looks out over the waterfront and mountain range is a definite highlight, plus the breakfast was thorough.

Our absolute highlight was seeing the Northern Lights. Thanks to another TripAdvisor user's posting, I decided to contact a local Northern Lights photography enthusiast by the name of Kjetil Skogli. He was incredible! The other 'Northern Light' group tours that were taking people out would be back at their hotels by 11.30pm- by which time it wasn't even dark yet!
Kjetil took my 3 friends and myself to his favourite camping site. He made a fire and helped us with our camera settings, and we were rewarded with a spectacular display.
We had a great time. I can't recommend Kjetil, or the Hotel Bryggen enough!

Reviewed 14 January 2006

The Clarion Hotel Bryggen is a great hotel, modern and quiet. It's in an ideal location right on the waterfront next to the other hotels and restaurants. Plus it's only 200 yards from the main shopping street. Everywhere in Tromso is within 10 minutes walking distance (Polaria, shops, museum, Mack brewery etc).

The room was very modern and clean with a fantastic shower and lovely heated floor in the bathroom. Breakfast was included and it was excellent with everything from fruit, bread, pastries, different types of yoghurt, musli, cereal, cheese & ham all the way to a full fried breakfast (eggs, bacon, beans, fried potatoes etc) plus there were many Norwegian specialities on offer.

The hotel had a free PC in the reception area which was handy for checking the Northern Lights activity (didn't see them unfortunately) and there was free tea and coffee all day. To top it off the hotel has a hot tub on the roof so you can bathe outside in a lovely warm spa and enjoy the view of the water and mountains even though it's freezing cold outside.
