Booked 2 rooms for a couple of nights, months ahead of time. But when we got there, they gave us 2 very different rooms although both were the same price and the same class “standard room”. When I went down to the reception to tell the concierge, they had the audacity to tell me

We had a superior room facing the fjord and the cathedral. Room is spacious, the beds are soft. The carpet on the floor is not perfect if the weather is bad so think about taking flip flops or slippers with you. It's great to have floor heating in the bathroom and therefore also

Scandic Ishavshotel was our last stop on a 10 day tour of Sweden and Norway. This hotel is located on the water overlooking the city of Tromso. The view from our room was of boats moored at the pier, and across the water we could see the Arctic Church.
We asked at the desk when

hiya deciding whether to book transfers in. How much is a taxi from airport to hotel and would they fit 4 suitcases
We took the bus from the airport to the hotel. The bus is just as easy as the taxi and you can store plenty of suitcases in the storage area. It is like a big tour bus and goes to the hotel stopping at a couple other places in town. It’s easy to find in the airport and you can’t get lost. We never used taxis in the city, we used the public bus system to get around.

How many people does the master suite accommodate proper beds and not sofa beds? Also, is it possible to book a master suite with a connecting room as I am travelling with adult children?
Without any sofa beds/extra beds, the master suites have 1 king size bed. Not possible to book connecting rooms, but of course you can have rooms close to each other.

Hi, If anyone can help regarding junior suite and superior room as shown online in other websites junior suite does not have any view opposite to what hotel website claims with superb view and balcony.
Hi! Some of our junior suites have a sea view, and some of them have a city view. :-) What you will get depends on availability. If you want to be guaranteed sea view, you have to book either a superior room or a master suite.

Do you provide shuttle from the airport to the hotel? If yes, do we need to make a request before arriving? Is there a fee?
There are buses that you can get just outside the door.
