One of the best Hotels I’ve ever visited. Excellent service, at the front desk, but the knowledge could have been better, First at the fourth employee, I got an answer at a difficult question.( about price setting ) . First class breakfast I have missed for years in hotels. And I slept in the best bed ever !! The room was also equipped with a cooler where you may put beer/softdrinks, to get it cold. Also an amazing view if your windows in the room is towards the fjord.
I warmly recommend this hotel.

When I arrived, I was given a room with a relatively small window. Asking for a bigger one, the staff was kind and helpful and immediately switched me to a very nice room with a big window overlooking the harbor. The view was great. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was ready to help with every request; breakfast was rich and tasty. I had a wonderful time.

A very friendly and helpful staff. My first visit to Tromsø and I was put on the top floor with a good view, free tea and coffee and a sofa to relax and enjoy it all - down a little staircase. Loved it! But this design gave small space to my luggage. No place to put other then on the floor by the bed and stumble upon it every time I had to move around. Don’t know how two people with luggage would manage this. Nice breakfast with a good variety. Quality wine in the bar, but a bit pricey but so are the rooms. Comfortable bed. Surprisingly little noise from Hurtigruten arriving just outside twice a day, one around midnight.

Hei Trine,

Tusen takk for tilbakemeldingen :-)
Rommet du hadde er kun beregnet på 1 person. Ikke 2.

Håper du hadde det fint hos oss!

Be careful with your car, if you have no parts & if you want to get up after 8:00.
See the end of my evaluation.

The room spread over 3 surfaces. On the 7th floor overlooking the ferry and the beautiful blue sign of the competing hotel. The 3 surfaces composing the chamber are small. In the end, the room is not very nice.
Excellent bedding with two individual quilts.
The spacious bathroom (shower).
Heating: Very good
Windows do not open fully (only in tilt and turn mode)
Wifi connection: Not tested.
Breakfast: Exceptional Perfect, rarely seen a breakfast as well:
Salty, sweet, all in quantity, quality & choice.
The hospitality is smiling, but not perfect.
On arrival, the reception offers a nearby car park for your car.
If you are not Norwegian & arrived without coins. Your battle begins ......
There is no English language to understand what to do with the automaton.
The nearest car park (offered by the hotel reception) refuses payment by credit card. To pay, so you need coins.
Then the logic of the parking meters of the city forbids you to anticipate a payment,
In order to stay sleep after 8:00. Parking is free or at a different rate until 08:00.
You will have to go to the parking meter at 8:00 am if you want to stay in bed.
So get up, to go back to bed. (It's logic).
The must is that the reception refuses to give you rooms with debit on your room.
You must collect tickets from the distributor and receive coins in exchange at the hotel reception.
In the end the reception gives you a ticket to put in your car. The amount of parking (from this ticket) is charged to your room.
And the icing on the cake. You have to get up at 8:00 to remove your car.
Because this parking is free until 8:00.
SUPERB !!!!!!!!

P.S. My English is not good, I used the WEB to translate my text. Please excuse imperfections.

Dear POPOF P,

Thank you for taking the time to give us your review.
I'm glad to see you enjoyed the bed in the room, and the heating in the bathroom floor :-)
Our breakfast is really good, and I'm happy to see you think so too!

About the parking: So sorry you had some troubles with the parking of your car.
Because of the translation it's a bit hard to understand exactly what went wrong for you, but I hope it worked out in the end.

Regardless of the parking, I hope you had great time in Tromsø :-)
