“Welcoming Staff, good location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

This hotel is just off the centre of Tromso, it was quiet and warm. The staff were all extremely welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was towards the back and very quiet, clean, warm and had a comfortable bed. The shower was very efficient and the under floor heating in the bathroom most welcome. Considering how expensive accommodation is in Norway, this hotel was a gem!

In a quiet street but really central. Good welcome, good value and good breakfast. Coffee and tea available all the time in reception. Would stay again.

About 5 minutes walk from the harbour, the tourist information centre and the main street, the hotel could not really be in a better position. Felt welcome straightaway - the reception staff and owner are all equally friendly, charming and informative.
Great to have free coffee and tea to come back to, especially in the winter and with the rather extortionate prices outside. Breakfast was great with loads of choice as long as you're not looking for bacon and egg.
A previous review mentioned some traffic noise. We had a room on the street and it was a little like the town in Northern Exposure with a car every 5 minutes and the odd elk strolling up the street (I made the last bit up, but you get the idea).
Rooms are compact but very very clean with comfortable beds and a large TV. Wi-fi worked fine for us as did the shower.

Five of us stayed in February, in 3 hotel rooms. It rained and we didn't see the Northern Lights, but STILL had a great stay! The hotel has a family atmosphere and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple but very clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are immaculate. Breakfast is excellent, there's free tea and coffee at all times in the lounge, and free wi-fi. The location is good - and the price is pretty reasonable. So we're not too disappointed about not seeing the Lights - it means we've got an excuse to come back next year!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

We were 5 people staying here in one of the hotel's apartments in Feburary 2012. The staff were friendly and helpful. The flat was nicely decorated, clean, well equipped, and within a relative convenient central location.Taking into consideration the whole package and experience this place offers a great price/quality ration, and especially when considering teh challaenges of catering to five people in the same space.
Two shortcomings are: (1) limited capacity of hot water supply. Showers need to be quick if a number of people wish to take a shower one after the other. It could be great if water heater capacity could be increased in any future rennovation; and (2) very slow Wireless Internet service (although free).
We had a good experience, and would return if we are ever to be back in Tromsø.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

More or less convenient location as the city is pretty small. Clean room, tea/coffee available 24/7, free wi-fi.

Very small room. Lift/elevator stops on every floor however there is still a need to make some more steps up or down which is unconvenient with heavy baggage. Depending on a price there are much more suitable overnight options in downtown and around.
