“Central, nice, clean and very helpful”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

When we got in we were met by very friendly staff that did their best to make us feel good and have a good time. They upgraded us to an apartment rather than a room which meant we got to spend time in a newly upgraded (it looked brand new) place with lots of space and all the amenities you could want.

Please note, this hotel is a multi-building property with a "standard" hotel part and some apartments (studio and one-bedroom at least) in adjacent buildings. We only experienced the apartments, and can therefore not comment on rooms.

The apartments seem brand new. They contain fridge, stove top, oven etc, so you can make full meals there if you wish to. All appliances were steel-front and appeared brand new. There was a hardwood floor and the place was very nice and clean. Shower was also nice and clean.

The location is excellent, but there is building going on in the vicinity of the hotel, which means side-streets have been torn up etc, giving the area a kind of run-down look. It isn't though, and all the delights of Tromsø are in walking distance of this hotel. Shopping just around the corner, Polaria a short walk away etc.

Please note that the closeness to all things good also means that there is some foot traffic in the area. Fridays and Saturdays that probably means you'll hear the kids moving between pubs and bars, and they talk to each other. If the the sounds of the city (no traffic noise, just people) are a problem for you, you should probably stay somewhere else. I love the sound of the city and it never was loud, just present.

Oh, and I should probably mention, the breakfast area is tiny and the breakfast is unassuming. If you get an apartment, you might be better off making your own.

Room Tip: Get the apartments, they are excellent. Don't know about the rooms.

Hello ColdViking!

How convenient it was for a Viking to stay with us!
Glad to hear that you enjoyed our apartment, we have everything from as you said studio apartments, to four bedroom apartments. As well as in standard apartments and delux.

Thanks again, and we hope you'll choose Viking Hotell the next time you're in Tromso.

Best regards

After spending three nights in one of the Viking Hotel apartments I cannot praise it enough. The wooden stairs leading to the apartment give no idea of what awaits - an attractive two-floor newly renovated apartment which sleeps six (we were four), pleasantly furnished with an open plan kitchen, diner and living room. Comfortable beds - spotless white bed linen and towels and an excellent situation. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We self-catered so cannot comment on the breakfast. I loved the over-bed lamps with a dimmer switch. The cost was equivalent to two hotel rooms and offered so much more.

Stayed for 4 nights. Upgraded from a hotel room to an apartment in the building next door. Good sized room, comfy bed, kichenette & powerful shower. Some noise from traffic outside & late night revellers. Breakfast was a reasonable buffet & the staff were good at keeping it topped up. Staff themselves were friendly enough. Location was central & Tromso is small enough that most places are just a few minutes walk away.

The apartment was not cleaned once during my 4 night stay & the hotel was expensive, which seemed to be a recurrent theme in Northern Norway at least (I did not venture south).

It's close to the City "centre" and the room was simple and ok. The little waffle stand in the reception was a nice touch. Friendly reception too. For a weekend trip we did not need anything else. We did not try the breakfast, so cant say anything about that.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Friendly staff, nice room with comfy bed. Very good location! Only minus was that there were no shampoo/conditioner and no hairdryer. The breakfast was horrible! (Hard bread, not a lot to choose from, and some food even seemed like it wasn't fresh)

Nicely furnished clean apartment with bedroom, living room & kitchenette (grocery store nearby). Central location, some uphill walking and stair climbing is involved. No central heating. Electric bedroom heater had a noisy fan. Upon request it was changed to a new heating blower that was noisier.

Centrally located hotel, room was very clean and well decorated. Our room was located next to a lift, however we didn't hear the lift at all or any of the guests outside. The staff are very friendly, helpful and cheerful, even at 5 am in the morning! The waffles in the reception area at 5pm were delicious. The hotel also has free wifi and the breakfast buffet was good.
