      • Family with children

        Breakfast.

        Rooms are a bit too small for those travelling with children. Maybe a bed sofa is missing

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The hotel was good value for money. Rooms had excellent air, cool and fresh. Hotel has allergy rooms available. The location is great and the service was good. To top it off the breakfast buffet was excellent.

        Water pressure in the shower was a bit low and parking fee was expensive.

        the view.

        The decor was tired. Breakfast time was chaos with such a large compliment of guests

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

        The superior room was not exactly superior, rather small for that description

        great hotel! fabulous breakfast and good communication with airport and other activities

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        It was a comfortable interesting hotel at a very good location

        not a lot of choice on room service or restaurants

      • Single
        9.2

        Good location, with a view on the harbour, bridge and Cathedral. Excellent breakfast (varied, abundant), which allows you to make do with just a snack for lunch.

        It´s on the expensive side when compared with similar hotels in other countries, but then lodging in Norway is not exactly cheap.

      • Single
        10.0

        Excellent customer service, beautiful breakfasts and amazing views.

        the room was a little cold

      • Older travelers

        Convenient for Tromso stay

        Curtains in bedroom hang on/over heater which could be a fire hazard

        Breakfast was lovely. I was there on business and the hotel was close to where I needed to be.

        Location was superb; breakfast was perfect - wonderful choice; lovely room with very large bed

        No pool!

        Breakfast choices

        No Internet available for non- computer carrying clients, only credit card access ata very inflated price.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        The staff are just superb and very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast buffet is one of the best I have come across anywhere. The beds are very comfy and a good size. Decor generally is classy and good quality.

        The rooms are typically Nordic - a bit on the small side - but "just" big enough.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Great location within Tromsø -most attractions within walking distance and very near bus station and the airport bus stops right outside Very good breakfast and worth making your way up to the bar on the 4th floor. Ask for harbour view

        As it is a business hotel it is a bit impersonal but thats the standard within Tromso -couldn't find any character hotels. Restaurant a bit soulless for evening meals but a couple of excellent restaurants within walking distance along the harbour. Very expensive drinks but that is typical of Norway so no reflection on the hotel -buy duty free before you go!

      • Couple

        Best breakfast buffet ever seen, with love for details and dietetics: glutene-free, organic, local items/dishes, many healthy things. SAS airport bus stop right outside, very practical.

        We would have taken for granted that a hotel of this level in Scandinavia is equipped with a sauna to warm up after strolls in the winter outside. The superior room was just enough in size for the two of us.
