    Close to the city centre which is great and the room was spacious with a great view. Sadly the lady at the reception desk was not the most pleasant person to deal with and we were lucky enough to deal with the same person during our stay.

    Decent Hotel in Good Location - Nightclub issue

    We had a Junior Suite which was pretty comfy and had plenty of space. Breakfast was decent but nothing to write home about. The question is, why does the hotel have Nightclub? We were on the seventh floor and some bass vibrations could be felt, wouldn't want to have been any lower. Location is excellent, in walking distance of lots of key things in Tromso. also Airport bus stops just outside.

    The noise from the bar was the deal breaker. The bar is on the ground floor, and we were on the 4th floor, so we thought we would be fine. Wrong. Sleep was impossible until about 3 a.m. If you are deaf or plan to party until the wee hours, this is a good choice. The hotel is well located, the staff are helpful, and the beds are comfortable. But, the noise is horrible.
