Exceptional 10.0
Great Trip in Wintertime Tromsø
The bus stop is very close and an affordable option rather than taxis. I recommend getting the 7 day pass for 240 NOK. The hotel has a great breakfast, honestly one of the best I have had. The service is very friendly and overall a great stay.

A pleasant stay
The hotel room is nice and spacious and the breakfast buffet is very good. The hotel shares the same entrance as the hospital, but one you know it doesn’t bother too much. It located a few km from city but has a good bus connection. We caught a taxi back to hotel after the chasing lights tour, cost around 220 NOK.

On the first day I had business at the campus, it was great that I was staying on site. The next day an hour's walk took me to town. You can also walk to the airport. Some bike rental facility would be great (actually maybe there was one, but it wasn't advertised).

Overnighter in Tromso
Stayed at Pingvinhotellet 1 night only having arrived at Tromso airport at 19:30. No airport bus on a Saturday or Sunday to the location/area of hotel. Caught taxi 210NOK, bus fare is 100NOK each so the taxi was a good. Taxi dropped us in basement service area. Pressed a buzzer & someone from reception let us into the hotel. Check in was easy, small shop next to reception, & an island where we purchased baguettes. Room smallish and basic, spotlessly clean, no tea/coffee making. Two comfortable single beds. Breakfast on the floor below reception & was excellent I left to collect rental car from airport. returned to the hotel, eventually. No clear pick up/drop off area & exit from reception is long walk to a road with no clear parking. If there is a sign indicating that it was Pingvinhotellet then I couldn't see it. Check Google Maps before you go so that you know what the hotel looks like. I parked in a service yard having driven past signs that (I think) said taxi and buses only. I assume this is why the taxi dropped us in the basement area. The hotel not close to the City Centre we've been to Tromso before & used the hotel as an overnighter. If you wanted to sightsee in Tromso I don't think I would recommend it. You are 4 or 5 Km travel from centre area. No problem with hotel but some signs would be nice, seems to built into the same area as a hospital & I felt I was driving around a hospital looking for an entrance to a building I could see but couldn't find.

Very functional, although it lacks a bit of atmosphere. Convenient for business trips to the university or hospital, but kind of far from the city center
