The hotel was great! The staff were really friendly and there was a great selection of food for breakfast and dinner (including lots of vegetarian options). The waffles were a great snack in the afternoon as I missed most dinners due to evening tours which departed prior to dinner time. It was definitely worth paying a little extra for a mountain view room.

Stayed here for 4 nights in 2nd half of Dec 2013 on a trip to see the Northern lights and take in some activities. This hotel is just what is required. I think this hotel gets a '3 Star' rating in the guides but deserves better. It may just be that Tromso doesn't have 4 or 5 star rated hotels and I'm not sure I'd see the point if they did as this hotel provides just what one wants for a trip to Tromso. The hotel is 'Scandinavia' clean- which is great as it is also comfortable and functional. We took two rooms on the harbour front - which gives you a good view and is probably worth the marginal extra cost. The only possible downside of being on the harbour front is that if there is any 'harbour front revelry' during the night - eg bars or restaurants closing late and persons inebriated if they can afford it, (with the cost of booze in this part of the world- getting inebriated is an expensive business), then there could be some noise issues. Might be a greater concern in summer- winter not so much. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and have all you need- good flat screen TVs, comfortable beds, fridge (bring your own booze) and the bathrooms were great- clean, good strong showers etc. The common parts of the hotel were well kept and well laid out and comfortable. The breakfast was good and had a good choice of alternatives to suit all tastes- eg Scandinavians and other european more traditional breakfast fare (who might not want to have too many 'pickled fish' for breakfast).
The afternoon 'self service' of pancakes and waffles went down well with the kids. We didn't eat here at lunch or dinner- not because we didn't want to but wanted to sample some local restaurants so we went down the harbour front and tried a steak restaurant. So cannot comment on the hotel food selection or quality- it looked limited but sufficient from what we saw. The reception staff were very pleasant, polite and helpful. This is Tromso- this is just what a hotel in Tromso should be and the price was good, it was comfortable, clean, well located, good staff. Would definitely recommend this and would stay there again- which we might do if we go back for whale watching or fishing. Takk.

This well located hotel offers many extras that make it a great choice for visiting Tromso.
The rooms are moderate size but totally adequate by European standards. The staff is very friendly and helpful and fluent in English like everyone in Norway. When we arrived we were offered a slightly larger room with shampoo, lotion, bathrobes, and a harbor view for an extra $30 per night. We declined and our room had a nice harbor view anyway.
A great feature of this hotel is the meal bonus that is included. First the breakfast includes hot choices such as eggs and other items, cereals, great breads, smoked salmon, and many other choices. In the afternoon the hotel offers free waffles from 3:00-6:00, and at 6:00 each evening a free light dinner meal is provided (all buffet style). Given the extremely high food prices in restaurants this can be a great free perk.
I definitely recommend this hotel -- just bring some shampoo. And since your boots are wet and dirty, bring house shoes or slippers so you don't track onto the wooden floors. Definitely a good place to stay.

After much deliberation I booked the Clarion Collection With for a birthday surprise for my partner. I couldn't have made a better choice. Although it was the most expensive on offer, the fact that afternoon waffles and an evening meal were included more than compensated. The quality of everything in the hotel exceeded expectations. The hotel is well situated for all the main bus routes including the Flybussen from the airport and the one to the Cable Car. Everything in Norway is cripplingly expensive (£4.80 for a coke and £8.80 for a sandwich for example) so judging 'Value for Money' is really impossible.

The hotel is simple without being too over-the-top, and is filled with tourists with one thing in mind: the Northern Lights. Front desk was always up-to-date with the weather and solar radiation, and were extremely helpful with things to do in Tromso, including places to eat and drink.

Given cold, dark days over winter, treacherous icy roads, and expensive food options in Tromso, the hotel's breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner options were very very welcome. Food was fresh and well-prepared, and the dining area was cosy; we certainly made some friends there while we were waiting for our northern lights tour at night.

Bedrooms were clean and spacious, with clean, modern (and heated) bathrooms. Big TV and comfy armchairs as well, and a very nice steam room / exercise room upstairs. Only problem was that beds were extremely soft, so for persons unaccustomed, you may have some issues with that. Not a problem for me as we were always exhausted from running around all day.

Room Tip: Choose a harbour view room on one of the top floors.

Dear Wazza_83.

Thank you for reaching us from Singapore, and your generous review. Our guests have different preferences and some like beds hard, and some like them a bit softer. We try to find the balance, and changed all our beds in december 2013.

This hotel was booked for me by a tour agency. Location wise is very good - close enough to walk to the meeting/pick up spot for Northern Lights tour or the husky dog sledding.

The room is very comfortable - bed is soft and cozy, shower with good space and water pressure is good, and the toilet floors are heated! So useful when it is -10 outside. The restaurant offers waffle buffet between 3pm - 5pm. Very nice touch. Wifi connection is very good.
