I stayed here late February and it was a good base for my planned winter activities. First of all however, my booking experience. I made a reservation in October by telephone and gave credit card details. I asked for a confirmation email. By January I had not received confirmation and called the hotel. I was told there was no record of my booking. So I had to book again! On this occasion when i DID get the confirmation email, the dates were slightly wrong!! So I had the hassle again of having to contact the hotel to correct the dates of my stay!!!!
The website also needs updating. It states that a single room (shared facilities) is 600 NOK in the period of my stay when in fact I was charged 690 NOK! The stated price of the breakfast buffet 40 NOK is also incorrect. I paid 50 NOK! Neither is it available 24/7. It is available every morning but not all day long!
The hotel itself is really nice however. It is clean, newly refurbished and is situated in a convenient location. The reception staff are really nice and very helpful. The dining room is a great place to meet and chat to people over the free coffee (which is available 24/7). There is quite a good selection of food available at the buffet breakfast (beware of the bread toaster- sometimes it trips the lights in the dining room (quite funny really!)) You get a clean change of towels everyday (no charge!) and there is a computer in the dining room where you can use the internet, print boarding passes etc (again, no charge!). I think price-wise it could be one of the best options in Tromso and there is just a nice vibe to the hotel. I guess everyone is excited to be hunting for the northern lights! Also, in contrast to an earlier reviewer who complained that the hotel was noisy, I did not hear any excessive noise and slept very well at night. And the hotel was full with people coming and going at all hours.
So overall great stay and would definitely stay here again! Just a few final things: There is only 1 TV channel in the rooms, the (free) WIFI available in the dining room/living room area was only intermittent in my room and perhaps most importantly, be mindful that the loo paper in the shared toilet runs out very quickly! Check that there are spare loo rolls before you use the toilet!!!!
