Reviewed 24 December 2013

Rica Grand hotel is a great hotel in the middle of the city, but still there is no noice. The rooms are nice (love the wallpaper with foto of the mountains) and the service is great! The breakfast is lovely with very good food!

The hotel is very well located, near several relevant places. The room size was excellent and the bathroom too, although the shower area was very dark. Although there was no air conditioning, the window could be opened, cooling the room. The breakfast was excellent, with lots of high quality options. The downside was the price, very expensive even for the level of service provided.

Takk for din anmeldelse, vi setter stor pris på at du tar deg tid til dette. Så fint at du hadde et bra opphold, tross høy pris. Dessverre er prisene ganske høye i press perioder.

Wery nice hotell, with outstanding service. Breakfast is very nice. We enjoyed a doubleroom from friday to saturday. Located in the center of Tromsø. Many nice places to enjoy a good dinner in the near of the hotel. If you like a night out, Tromsø is well known for the nightlife.

This hotel was excellent and meet all my requirements, very friendly staff, easy check in, great food and bar.
Its in a great location in the middle of town ( not that Tromso is a big place), the bedrooms are not massive but are very modern and clean and very well equipped, what more do you want.
Food was excellent and really friendly staff, could not fault it and will return here one day.
Have to stay I was very impressed with Tromso, never on my list of places to go but would recommend that you go for a weekend and see what it has to offer,you will be suprised.
Picture postcard stuff.

Stayed here for one night only as part of a driving road trip up the coast. Found the hotel welcoming and friendly, the room was good and the breakfast very good too. Convenient central location for exploration on foot.

The Grand is situated in the middle of Central Tromsø, at the south end of the bustling Storgata. Rooms are newly refurbished with modern interiors, including flat screen TVs. The bathroom was spacious, and clean with fresh white tiles. Wifi coverage in rooms (included) was decent. Breakfast is average for Norwegian hotels, with a plus for freshly made smoothies. Lobby and restaurant shows signs of wear. The hotel bar is in the adjoining Gründer night club

Really good beds, good breakfast and the bar downstairs has really good drinks. The hotel is very central so it is a very good basis for discovering Tromsø.
The rooms could have been bigger, but at the same time, they are not too small, and bigger room would probably have been even more costly.
