The only bad thing about Norway is that the chance to write "excellent value" is rarer than an undercooked reindeer steak. But this hotel is. I booked as part of a flight/hotel package, and I got a good deal (for Norway).
The hotel's (standard) rooms aren't huge, but super clean, comfy and with everything you need. The breakfast is great, and the free afternoon waffles, constant tea and coffee and evening meal becomes increasingly attractive as you realise just how expensive everything else is when you go out. I was even charged less for a beer (from a can) than I was in the pub.
But what makes this hotel - and perhaps it's just Norway in general - is the amazingly helpful and friendly staff.
From a kept plate of food because I was arriving late to a (very late) check out for my afternoon flight home so I could have a shower after a morning's hiking, nothing was too much trouble. You feel treated like a friend.
Obviously I'm sure that for more money there are even better hotels in the city, but I have no hesitation in ticking 'excellent', because this place is more than just 'very good'.
And if you're in any doubt about whether to visit Tromso in general, then do. Fabulous place.
