Nice kitchen, small room. Uphill location

Good place to lay your head.
We stayed only one night. We came to Tromso for a northern lights tour and booked the hotel for only a night. We spent very little time in the room but it was comfortable and suited our needs. We were three travelers and the room had three twin beds which was a really nice option since most places do not cater to three. It was nice there was a sink in the room since the bathroom was shared with the whole floor. Everything was clean and comfortable.

Stay here!
warm friendly welcome from Emily, evening staff also were very helpful. As a solo traveller (first time) I was very unsure of anything, but two gentlemen helped me, by explaining on map where specific stores are, mobile phone SIM card, local brands/signs to look for, eateries etc. Also assisted with facilities. Emily booked a taxi for me upon leaving. A block away from everything, street looks down on the city, with good view.

Limited reception
The room card was not available before checking out. fortunately, receptionist was there until 6pm so I could change the card. If not, I must have been back to another hotel to replace it followed by steepy snow slope...

Comfy stay
Nice quiet place to stay between doing various activities. Open 24hrs so can get in after returning from a northern lights chase at 3am. Good to have a fridge in your room, comfy bed. Not many toilets to the amount of rooms, but having said that I never had to wait for the toilet or a shower though I guess it may be more of a wait at busier times of year.

Great location, a few minutes walk to the city centre. Hotel is more a hostel type accommodation with a big kitchen for all to use which was great. Slightly annoying was the advertised parking on site, which didn’t mention a need to reserve it in advance. We therefore had to spend quite a lot of money at one of the city centre parking garages. It would have been helpful to have known to reserve the parking. Location is great and very high up so you get some beautiful views of Tromso!

Poor 2.0
Worst experience, don't go there
Worst experience ever. We booked a double room but they give us a single small room as the last room available. The two of us had to sleep in a single bed. The reception was not kind and always complaining. The floor was smelling. The room was smelling more..
