Pingvinhotellet UNN Tromsø (Attached Uni Hospital)
Hotel is very clean and tidy, but it must be clear that it is attached to the university hospital. This is a little strange as you walk through the hospital entrance to get to the reception, and the canteen is shared. As long as this is not an issue the hotel is more than acceptable, with a very clean room and nice bathroom.

Great value for money.
The hotel is really good value for money compared to what you will pay if you stay at a hotel in town. The bus stop is right outside the hotel and buses run frequently and it was never a problem for us to get to town even with heavy snow. It is kind of strange staying at a hotel in a hospital but the rooms are great and the breakfast selection is really good.

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.

Good hotel. Great service. The hotel is adjacent to a major hospital but it’s not loud at all. It’s also a bus/taxi/car ride away from the center of town but this wasn’t a huge inconvenience.

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

Good hospital visit hotel with tourism aspirations
The hotel\room was clean and very good value for money in the somewhat expensive town of Tromso, but it was not clear in any of the promotional material that this was actually a hospital hotel and that you in fact walked through half the hospital to check in or get to your room. The door was also locked after 22:00 and needed to buzz reception to get in, which was not always convenient\fast. Included breakfast was very good and added to the value, but advertised parking was more limited than expected as it was shared with hotel visitors and cost about 20 Euro per day. Town was beyond walking distance, so either a bus (slow), taxi or drive (paid parking) away. Would be very good for people visiting family\friends in hospital, but not so good for tourists.
