we have visited Grand several times, and it is always great. this time we went with some friends, and had "Julebord" at the hotel - and also visited the nightclub Level 44. We always get great rooms and the breakfast is great. Late checkout on sundays is one of the offers at this hotel - superb service!

Great location, shopping area is near. Nice service, smily faces everythere. Breakfast is tasty and cool, many different dishes and if you are not hungry, you will be when you see it. Grand owns the most popular nightclub in town, and since we are young, we had a great time there.

We will be back!!!

Me and my wife stayed at the Grand Nordic Hotel in Tromsø in June. The hotel is located in the middle of the city centre, within walking distance to everything. The room was airy and nice, light colours. Service at the front office was excellent, we were helped mostly by a young man. It was too early for summerrates, therefor a little expensive. We stayed however for two days, and can recommend both the hotel and the city. Maybe the very nice weather helped...?

We got a great price for a weekend here (think it was some sort of campain?!?). We where not sure what kind of hotel this was, but was positivly supriced when we checked in. It looked a little old on the outside, but the lobby and front desk looked very nice. We where greeted by a very pleasant girl who was very helpful. The room was big and very nice with view of the city. We asked the reception and they confirmed that we had gotten a superior double due to overbookings, and we where very happy about that. When we walked the hallway we could see inside another (standard?) room and it was not as nice, but looked OK.

Breakfast was good. They had great and cheap (for Norway) lunches in one of their restaurant/café. Unfortunatly closes on Sundays (as was the whole town it seemed).

Location was great. Close to all shops and restaurants. It was some noise in the evening from the hotel's bar and streets, but not more that expected when you book a city hotel. It was worse in Oslo where it seemed cars and sirences lasted all night long. But then again, we have never been very sensitive to that kind of noise.
Airport shuttle came and left right outside the hotel, but we used a taxi both ways. It wasn't that more expencive, and was worth it if you have a flight that didn't correspond the best with the shuttle.

Overall a very good hotel, but not sure the experience had been as nice if we had to pay much more and gotten another room.
