Lovely hotel, room excellent, breakfast was amazing, never seen such a fantastic choice of food. Would definitely stay again, we were able to leave our luggage whilst we took an overnight excursion and staff were really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. Mr & Mrs Lowe, UK

We paid the extra for the sea view and it was worth it. The view from the 4th floor was spectacular. Huge windows. Could see the mountains and water and the cathedral and bridge all lit up. We saw the view from the other side and it was pretty much just buildings. Room was very clean with beautiful decor and...

So...we stayed here for 4 nights in a superior room on the 6th floor. Beautiful sea views from the room both at night and day. The room was a decent size with a modern simple design. Heated bathroom floors, wifi and 32 inch+( i think)smart tv with usb/hdmi connector. This was very useful when reviewing our photos and videos we...

Good hotel in Scandi minimalist style. Great location to access all in Tromso centre and a number of the tourist must see locations. And good views of port. Efficient service. Great breakfast and some nice design touches like Vipp lights in room.

Very good location. Land tours are easily booked at Tromso Safari in Radisson Blue which is a few steps away. Nice hotel and good spread of English Breakfast. Staff friendly. Only drawback is the room a bit small and stiff bed mattress.

This hotel has amazing breakfasts of waffles, pancakes, English and continental, fruit, meats and even all you can eat macaroons! It is definitely worth getting up for. The view out to the harbour is amazing with sunrises. We unfortunately didn't see the northern lights like others but it would have been impressive had it happened. The wifi is really good,...

What a great stay we had in Tromso! We were lucky to have clear, cold nights to see the Northern Lights right from our upper floor room! Breakfasts are outstanding, and keep you full until dinner; so many good and healthy choices. Couldn't ask for nicer staff.

Friendly service at the reception and a room with a nice sea view and a good bed made me feel welcome. The hotel has a central location close to shops and restaurants. The breakfast was fresh and varied.
