From the first look we really liked that hotel: newly built, modern furnishing and centrally located. Luckily we got a room on the top floor with an excellent view on the sea side, towards the Mount Storsteinen (you can reach it with cable car - great place to watch stunning panorama of Tromso!!). I was also positively surprised with rich food and beverage menu at the breakfast buffet topped with freshly made pancakes and omelettes on guest wish...
Sounds pretty good right? What I found odd considering the hotel standard is following:
(1) double bed room had 2 single beds, which were sliding apart = no hugging for couples..
(2) key card was not working properly and we had to spend some time when leaving the room to make sure it closed properly. We also had a problem to access our room, which was later fixed at the reception.
(3) a little detail - bathroom has no hangers for drying towels (low-hanging rail under basin isn't practical)
(4) staff is very friendly and helpful. But be prepared to spend some extra time to get served at the
bar or restaurant.
Overall score between average and very good. I would recommend to visit, but if you travel in two, check your bed first! :-)
