“Great service and great value”
Reviewed 26 February 2011

I stayed in one of the two bedroom appartments with my wife and two kids.
The best decision of my holiday,the appartments are average size but easily big enough to keep four people happy,they were spotless inside and had everything you needed in terms of self catering. Tromso is a very expensive place to eat out however just around the corner there was a Eurospar supermarket which sold everything you wanted to make some fantstic meals and at a fraction of the price in the very expensive restraunts.
Mr Jansen and his staff were also a pleasure,every morning you were met with a big smile and genuine interest in what you had been upto and what plans you had for the day ahead.There was nothing that the staff would not help you with and the hotel had a great feel to it.
I sat in the bar watching football on two occasions and it was a pleasure talking about football on both occasions with Evan even though he supported Man U and just to note the hotel sold the cheapest priced beer in any Tromso hotel or bar.
To sum up we had a great time the manager and staff were fantastic the value was as good as anything available its location was second to none and the advice we received about all the activities was invaluable.
I will be back soon and i will stay in this hotel again and would highly reccomend it to everyone.

We stayed at a 2 BR basement apartment at the Viking for 4 nights. Its close to the centre of the city with SPAR and a Shell petrol station available for you to shop for supplies... (there is a also a shopping mall close by)
Nice sized apartment with most furnishings (no dishwasher)...equipped kitchen (with microwave, ceramic cooktop, oven etc. did not find hot water kettle.)

Affordable by Norwegians standards, the people at reception were helpful and we had a nice, private and peaceful time in Tromso.
Saw an amazing display of Aurora Borealis in the Lyngen Alps where Temps were in the range of -10 to -25. Tromso was extremely mild with temps ranging from -1 to -5.

We stayed 12th Feb to 14th Feb to hopefully see the northern lights.
Although booked into room 302 Mr Jensen offered us one of his apartments for ony £20 more so we took the plunge.
Very warm and cosy.
Supermarket (Spar) on the next street and close enough for everything else.
Temperature ranged from -8 to -29 up in the mountains.
I have seen mixed comments about the hotel and proprieter but we had no problems at all.
I can understand some of the comments as Mr Jenson reminds me of Rutger Hauer in that first impressions can be a bit unnerving. Never judge a book by its cover.
Food is expensive and drink is silly.
We took 4 small bottles of wine packed in our shoes in the case.
The air and feel around Tromso is extremely clean.
Used Evar for 2 trips to see the lights.
The cost is K65 which is around £70 each for 4 hours.
Not a bad business eh? 10 people per van £700 a trip.
Having said that if lights are to be found Evar will find them and took us to the best spot in the world.
The road was north to south.
Behind us was Orions belt, so clear you could even make out M42.
In front the lights started as they normally do from east to north.
What a display.
will upload pictures and how to set your camera later.

We decided to go self-catering, and definitely made the right decision. There's a Spar about 80m away, and it's great to have a base (and cheaper!)

The Viking apartment we're in is in the basement. Newly refurbished, it's clean, modern and well appointed. A small but fully functional kitchen, lovely bathroom and shower, and two bedrooms. Flatscreen TV, DVD player, stereo and free wifi. You can also get parking in the huge underground car park about 200m away. The only small negative is that there are no windows in thebluving room/ kitchen side, and the people above really thump around. But generally not at night, which is the main thing.

The location is fantastic, and the service in the main hotel is friendly and excellent. Highly recommended.

I stayed here with 7 of my family and we really enjoyed our stay in Tromso and the Viking Hotel. The apartments were modern and clean with a kitchen and living area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel does not look spectacular from the outside, but the room is a decent size with comfortable beds, a flat screen TV and best of all (because I was there in the dead of winter), heated bathroom floors. Breakfast was also quite good with a good selection and decent spread. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially when I was under the weather a little bit.

We stayed at the apartment branch of the Viking Hotel in Tromso for 5 nights. We were greeted by an exceptionally friendly staff member who promptly checked us in & advised of some of Tromso's key attractions. Free tea and coffee at the reception too!

The apartment was fantastic. Modern amenities, fast internet, fully equipped kitchen. Washing Machine and Dryers are located on ground level. If you're staying in the 3 bedroom apartment on the very top level you are fortunate to have an outside deck area which runs around the perimeter of the apartment and is perfect for late night Aurora watching.

During our stay in Tromso we booked a Dogsledding tour with Lyngsfjord (amazing experience!) and a Northern Lights expedition with Guide Gunnar (lots of anticipation and fun) - I highly recommend both activities! If you're not sure what activities you want to partake in make sure you visit the information centre down by the water, the staff are very helpful and efficient!

Tromso was our last stop in Norway and it certainly impressed - wonderful people and scenery. I can confidently say this was my favourite hotel and destination of my 6 week holiday. I can't wait to go back!!!
