Recent guest reviews

I stayed in panorama sea view. The view is very nice. The location is very good and easy to travel from/to airport. Breakfast is really unforgottable due to its variety and very delicolious. Bed is very comfortable

Fantastic view and good service! The breakfast was amazing, best I´ve ever had. I´d love to go back. The room was perfect, with a view directly towards the Ishavskatedral. Good service from the desk when I needed ekstra help.

Confortable hotel. It is situated in the center of Tromsø, tuching the fiord, with great views from the room and breakfast area to the fiord. If you are lucky you can be in bed and see the Northern Lights! The personal was fantastic. The breakfast is great with a lot of variety, Highly recomended to share a good time to have breakfast.

Arrived here as plane was cancelled Thursday 28th sept we'd been fishing in arnoyham on fjords and on way home we were taken here. From the mo9we arrived quality meet and greet on reception fantastic rooms. The Breakfast was stunning every choice you could imagine and staff that cant do enough for whatever you like they will get, the evening meals were beautifully cooked and flavours thanks for looking after us for 3 days group of 6 fisherman from wales

First visit above polar circle did not feel at all ‘at home’. Our family of 4 could not get rooms next to each other nor at the same floor. Breakfast was really excellent. A large event on the ground floor appeared however to big to manage and spoiled the scenic atmosphere of the hotel. Rooms are adequate. There’s no parking lot, and following the parking instructions of the reception ended up in a penalty of 150 (!) euro for wrong (?) parking and no way to get it back....

This is a very nice hotel right on the water, right in the town. Great location! Our room was small but with big windows. The bathroom was very strange - the shower was sort of out in the open. The breakfast was wonderful! Very large and bounteous buffet! One warning - no parking provided by the hotel, and the adjoining public lot is expensive.

This is a modern, clean, quiet hotel with a stunning waterfront view and a superb breakfast buffet. The bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet. Staff were polite and helpful. The room was well equipped. This hotel ranks near the top of the Scandinavian hotels that I've stayed at.

My stay at Scandic Ishavshotel in Tromsø was a a real pleasure. The things I look for in a hotel room in particular filled the bill: clean bathroom with a nice tiled shower stall with 2 options for water delivery (waterfall & handspray). The TV was huge: HD with many channels, including dedicated HD channels. Room temperature (usually too hot and/or stuffy at most Norwegian hotels) was perfect! Only complaint: Opening the window to make it even cooler when I slept did not lower the temperature. I missed not having a thermostat I could adjust. Other things:; The restaurant (Roast) is good. Limited menu, but a whiff of a gourmet experience (hotel restaurants usually vastly overpriced and unsensational from a culinary standpoint). Prices were also good for what you got. The breakfast buffet is famed as the best in the region. Everything imaginable was available, and all well-prepared. The personnel behind the desk were unfailingly friendly and helpful during my entire 2-day stay. The hotel is right by the water, and most rooms have breathtaking views. Most things you'd want to do or see are within walking distance, and airport bus is just outside the main door (not the case with many Tromsø hotels).

Having stayed in several Scandic Hotels during this Globus Tour, we were so surprised to see that this standard room was larger, with a larger more comfortable bed too. We had a lovely corner view of the harbour which added to the ambiance. The bathroom great too. Very friendly staff. The buffet breakfast was excellent. We also had dinner at The Roast Restaurant. The menu is limited but the food excellent, as was the service. I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel was in an excellent location but the main plus of our stay was the view out our window. Any room on the northeast side had an excellent view of the docks and bridge as well as mountains and church. The room was nicely furnished and very clean as well as comfortable. The hotel restaurant had a terrific buffet for breakfast. Couldn't ask for much better. Excellent variety that tasted great. It was within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants, souvenir shops, and local attractions. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good hotel.
