decent price for area, good if you have a car,Posted Jul 24, 2012
Pros: ample free parking, view
Cons: needs upgrades, needs refrigerator in room or ice machine on floor, better TV set
Location: near but not at the airport - don't think you can walk this with luggage unless the weather is perfect and you like a long hike
Hotel was clean but needs upgrading. View is very nice of the airport, water, and mountains if you get the right room. While an airport hotel, getting to the airport is not really any more convenient than from a hotel in town by public transport. Unless the weather is nice and you have just a backpack you will need a bus or cab just as if you were in town, and the bus will be the same price regardless of distance traveled. Rooms needs a fridge, some sprucing up, and the hotel could use more than one internet computer downstairs, an airport shuttle service on demand, as well as an instruction sheet on the time-saving back paths from the hotel to shopping and public transport hub. A decent hotel that can beand cheap if you can get the right expedia promotion. Easy to park and use as a base of operations if you have a car.

Stuffed Polar Bear???Posted Jul 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
A pleasant hotel a little bit out of town. A bus station is about half a mile away so quite easy to get places. Amazing buffet breakfast. Shame about the stuffed polar bear in the reception. Seems to be a pre-requisite for businesses in Tromso for some reason.
Very satisfactory stay.Posted Jul 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
Good value for money, with friendly and helpful staff. Good out-of-town location, with spacious free car park, very close to airport and new shopping centre.
Would stay againPosted Jul 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
The name on Hotel.com was Tromso Hotel. Lucky for us most people in Norway spoke enough english to help us. But no one had heard of it. We finally found it as Scandic Hotel Tromso. The road was under construction and only one sign. After stopping 3x for directions it was easy. A shopping mall is 5 min walking distance. 3 seperate groups of shops double layer. Sauna was nice. Ate in shopping mall both nights and used the grocery store to try local items we had never seen before. Breakfast the first morning was a zoo. Two tour groups were eating just before their deadline and tables were very hard to get. But they kept clearing and refilling so it worked out well. The food was well presented and good. Our room was a double but really a twin shoved together. Each person had a thier own sort of mattress. Comfortable but not what we expected. It was consistant with what we found every where we stayed. Would probably try and stay downtown if I went again.

A good hotel but the restaurant could do betterPosted Mar 29, 2012
Location: Less than 10mins on a cab from the airport!
The hotel was okay with friendly staff. The biggest disappointment is that the restaurant only offers 4 choices of meal for dinner...

A good hotel, not too far from the centre.Posted Mar 13, 2012
Pros: Pleasant staff.
Cons: Wifi was a little awkward. Restaurant closes on Sunday, but so do most.
Location: Good for airport, easy to get to everywhere.
The rooms was pleasant, with plenty of power points for chargers etc. Staff were friendly and helpful. Though near and convenient for the airport there was no noise or disturbance from it.

pick the right receptionistPosted Feb 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
Good hotel with excellent breakfast and Spartan but comfortable rooms. Location is pretty bad, you need to ask/persuade tour operators to pick up/drop off at the hotel (several km away from downtown Tromso) Taxis are quick and efficient but the bus is better, pity that only ONE receptionist could give me details of how/where to catch the bus - Staying downtown would have been cheaper in the long run

DisappointingPosted Feb 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
Location very poor in relation to city centre.Room and facilities sparce, bed very poor.Outward opening room door gave impression of entering a cupboard, not very good first impressions! Out of 3 hotels used during our holiday the Scandic was the only one to charge for coffee. Restaurant prices encouraged visitors to find the local supermarket.

A lovely getawayPosted Feb 17, 2012
Pros: Breakfast and a the big room.
Cons: A bit out of the centre so could be hard to get back to
Location: Out of the city centre
A great room with lovely snowy views. A lovely breafst to set you up for the day as well. The problem was that we arrived on a Sunday and everything is closed on a sunday ! The resturaunt wasn't open so we had to get a taxi into town for food. Walk down to the bus station (about 10 mins) and get a 24hr or 48 hr bus ticket - the easiest and cheapest way to get around and the buses are great ! They run on time and are the perfect way to get round. Check all the opening times of attractions locally as they were all different to the guide books etc !
