Clarion Collection Hotel With

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is typical no frill hotel in Norway. It is expensive but they are 'minimalist' in order to reduce the cost. I visited Norway quite a lot so I know cost of operating business like hotels is steep. The in room facilities are basic including toiletries and towels and no coffee maker in the room although they provide the facilities in the restaurant. The hotel location is perfect. Close to harbour and town center where all guided trip start and where the bus from airport stop too. This is probably one of the reason they charge more than the other hotels at the other location do. They provide free breakfast and evening meal to guests so it could save you some money as long as you are fine with basic food. The meal are delicious but just simple and not much choices. There is coffee and tea making facilities but the coffee is nothing compared to decent coffee shop out there. Overall, I'm not really excited about the hotel so I wouldn't recommend it unless you get a good price. Otherwise there must be better hotels in the area.

Our family stayed at the Clarion With for five nights during Easter and we were very comfortable, relaxed and well served. The rooms and bathrooms are really small (at least those with a view to the port) but enough to stay well. Breakfast is fair and the light dinner is possibly better with hot soup and fried potatos and vegetables since 18:00 about the time when you come back from the cold after your daily activities. We would certainly return and can recommend it for the excellent quality/price ratio.

Stayed here to chase Northern Lights, but didn’t need to, they came to us!! Hotel perfectly placed, friendly and all the amenities you need. All day tea and coffee a bonus, and the evening meal will save you a fortune. When we return to Tromso, this is where we will stay.

This hotel is centrally located, and backs up to the harbor area. While the rooms are fairly small, they were very comfortable and certainly did the trick. The free breakfast was excellent--lots of choices and good food to get you through the day. There are free make-it-yourself waffles for an afternoon snack. We also didn't realize until we got there that dinner is also included--it is a fairly simple buffet, but it was tasty and a quick and easy way to get a bite to eat before heading out on the tours, which tend to leave on the early side. We were also very appreciative of the hotel staff, who saved us from what could have been a disaster. Not quite sure how this happened, but apparently I booked the hotel (on Expedia) for the three days following our intended dates, which we did not discover until we showed up at the front desk. Nevertheless, the staff accommodated us for the dates we needed, and just used the pre-payment for the other dates as covering the dates we were actually there. Whew! That was really nice of them, and much appreciated. Also, in case you are wondering about the weird name of the hotel: "With" is actually the name of famed Tromso ship captain Richard With.

This hotel has the most customer friendly staff, they are pleasant , very helpful and efficient. My travel agent requested almond milk and oat based breakfast for me, the almond milk was in the kitchen for me and there was porridge and muesli for breakfast. The breakfast was excellent my friend and i enjoyed a variety of fruits, cooked breakfast and different breads and a variety of drinks. Much is talked about the afternoon waffles, which you make yourselves (easy) they were very good and free. There was also a light supper supplied complimentary every evening, a soup , a main + salads. Breads crackers and beverages , if you wanted a dessert that was charged for. There was no waitress service , which may not suit every body however the food was delicious and kept well stocked on a buffet system. Both the hotel restaurant, rooms and the hotel itself were very clean. The room was spacious with two armchairs , a TV and phone, and very comfortable beds. if you did not have your room serviced the hotel made a contribution to a charity that supports children at risk, brilliant. The top floor had a sauna and a gym , which I did not visit. If I ever had the opportunity to visit this hotel again I would jump at the chance. Definitely would recommend.

Great hotel in Tromsø: perfect location, the rooms are nice and clean, with amazing views, the staff is nice and helpful, breakfast is very complete. The best part: free waffles from 3pm to 6pm and free dinner from 6pm to 9pm! That made the stay even better. Would definitely go back!!

The Edge hotel was awesome. Erling was so friendly and recommended the best places to eat. Erling was extremely accommodating to us. He was our first friend in Norway! Peter at the front desk recommended all of the best sight seeing spots and also super friendly. These two guys at the front desk were true reflections of how great the Norwegian people are in the country. Hotel breakfast buffet was AMAZING!

I booked our group of 12 into this hotel for two nights. The Pros: - Great position, close to transport and right on the dock. - Free meal at night is a fantastic idea. Salad, main and a dessert - Good breakfast buffet - Rooms are comfortable - Open air hot tub on roof allows you to have the experience of being snowed on whilst being in the hot tub, or if you are really lucky, spotting the Northern Lights! - Sauna is nice at the end of a cold day - Free Waffles - Barman makes good cocktails! The Cons; - Some rooms can be on the small side. - Whilst the barman makes great cocktails, on the night we were there the bar was busy and there was just him. This meant a big wait on drinks which of course was not his fault. - The hotel offers free waffles but there is only one waffle iron and the wait therefore meant a huge queue out the door. Come on Clarion, you can do better than that~ - Having a free dinner each night is wonderful, but if you have any dietary restrictions you may not be catered for. All in all a good experience. I would book again.

Stayed at the Clarion Collection Hotel With for 6 days 5 nights. Picked this hotel caused after reading a lots of review knew it is a pick up place for the northern lights tour, and also include dinner was one of the reasons. The room size was okay. The bed was a bit soft but luckily we didn't got back pain after 5 nights , so....not too bad. Got basic amenities, towels and a multi usage cleansing gel (shampoo and shower) and hair dryer. Didn't have tooth brush and tooth paste, therefore don't forget to bring..but if forgotten no worries, just less then 5 minutes walk there's a supermarket. Location is excellent, back door is facing the harbour, and just one minute walk is the main tourist shopping area, got eateries , shops, and supermarket, very convenience. Provide breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. Breakfast , choices are quite a lot, fried egg with bacon, scramble egg, sausage, salad, cold cut , fish, cereals etc etc. Afternoon tea , is make your own waffle, quite fun, and taste good. Dinner, every night have different meat dish plus potato, salad and soup. We had 4 dinners there, therefore we tried 4 different meat dishes which were, pork with tomato sauce and rice, rosemary chicken , beef with curry and pork with gravy, taste good. Include dinner helped us saved a lot of money, as eating outside was expensive. One important tip, walk out to the back door ( harbour area) after dark, we did it at around 8pm, you might have luck to see the aurora lights , we have seen it for two nights😀 Good luck 😉

This is a lovely hotel in a great location overlooking the harbour in central Tromsø. Rooms are clean, bright and airy and the breakfast & evening meals offered were excellent, as well as being great value for money. I would stay here again and highly recommend, especially for solo travellers like myself. Thank you Hotel With for helping to make my stay in Tromsø such a special one :-)
