“Ok, not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

There are expectations one has from a chain convention hotel and different expectations from small boutique hotels. One would expect to use a regular Visa or AMEX, good wifi and pleasant front desk staff at a hotel that hosts international meetings. None of these were present. What was present was excellent food, very clean and corporate dull interior.

Tromso is an amazing city which you will instantly fall in love with. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains on all sides.

This hotel is in a good location and like other's in the chain, you get an excellent level of service. Located right next to the waterfront and 2 minutes from the main high street and 5-10 minutes from other attractions it is a good location from which to explore Tromso.

Like most Radisson Blu hotels it is very large but the rooms are good. 2 lifts to get to our room, including a walk across an enclosed bridge giving you further great views of the mountains.

We had a Junior Suite on the top floor with balcony and views across the harbour, and good views of the bridge, Arctic Cathedral and mountains (including cable car which you must ride on to see the most spectacular view of Tromso!). Spacious room, large comfortable bed, excellent black out curtains and a clean, good sized bathroom with everything you need provided. No complaint about the room.

Breakfast is substantial and the restaurant is never busy in the morning. The usual extensive buffet. We did not try the restaurant in the evening.

There is a viewing room on the top floor where you can sit back and relax and look out at the amazing views. All it needs now is a bar!!

Staff are helpful and friendly, the airport express bus stops right outside the hotel. What more do you need.

Definitely recommend staying here if you are in Tromso.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor facing across the bay. If you can afford it a Junior Suite, ask for room...

The hotel staff were super nice and efficient. I felt very welcome. Logistics of the hotel good, elevators came without much wait. Breakfast buffet ok - not great but absolutely good enough. The room was clean and nice. The only soap available was the dispenser soap in the bathroom and shower, and it was the cheap kind - full of perfume and what not... My one night stay was very expensive and even if the stay was good, it felt overpriced and left a sour taste in my mouth.

The location of the hotel is perfect. Bus from the airport just stops near the entrance of the hotel. The breakfast was excellent with a big choice of food for all tastes/wishes. Outside view was very nice at the 8th floor but the problem was that window was not good clean and was for some reasons locked. Price is difficult to evaluate because all prices are high in Norway. The ordinary single room was relatively small. The main point that the weather was nice in Tromso!

I stayed two nights from 29th to 31st of May.

I had a small flooding in my bathroom on the first night as draining seemed clogged. When I told the reception I was immediately upgraded to a superior room.

All staff I encountered were friendly and welcoming. A special mention goes to Nena at the recepetion for her kind demeanor and outstanding service on more than one occasion.

I missed fried eggs and bacon at the breakfast, that's it. Very good hotel, very good location.

I was in Tromso's Radisson Blu for six nights. The breakfast was excellent. My bedroom was big, clean and with fantastic view on the arbour. Good the sauna on the top of hotel with circular window. I like this hotel!!

Room Tip: Choose a room with view on the arbour
