Recent guest reviews

I went with my family to this hotel last week, we saw good reviews and it was supossed to have a pool, at least they listed the pool in their amenities. When we got there they told us that they were sorry but the pool was out of service but there was no advice from the hotel for this and no discount either. After that, they told us that water pressure was not really good but when we get to the rooms it was not water at all, so toilettes were a mess, they told us we could use toilettes from the 1st floor and take a bath in the pool bathrooms. Just great to use all the bathrooms in the hotel! There is no free parking. Just one side of the hotel has a view of the mountains so be sure you got one of them. Very small rooms.

We were not sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews on tripadvisor but when we got there we loved the place. Very clean with large bathroom. Walking distance to town and also free gym and sauna. Great value.

Hi, just stay for 6 nights, in Troms is the best place to see northern lights,I have very nice trip with Aurora Alps, they have all necessary equipment for you,best trip, but for ski area is bad, they open the slopes and ski rental shops at 15.30pm to 20.00pm monday to friday and Sat/Sun 10am to 17pm. is a 15min drive from city the taxi will cost 200nok and the bus is 125nok for a family of four,and the bus stop 10 min walk from slopes and is every 30min. The cable car is a very good place to see lights and is running 22.00 pm a nice coffee place. Polaria museum is very poor and small, to show a 30min with 4 seal 2adult 2 baby 2 show all day and few thanks whith fish, hope this review will help I stay at St-Elisabeth very poor first they only serve breakfast, if we want to eat dinner we have to go to city 15 walk or taxi pay double money, swimming poll only allowed from 21/22pm,on 3 floor is a hospital very scary for small kids, they not advise this on website, room very small and the breakfast poor 1 type of cheese and 5 salami some cereal, gem and very small croissant few, the staff is very nice and helpful very good but the hotel himself is let down. Thanks hope this will help Happy Days Coco

People who wrote negative reviews of this hotel did not properly investigate it beforehand. Yes the hotel shares space with healthcare providers but who cares we didn't even notice that. Yes the room is a bit small but it is not a secret and rooms in Norway tend to be like that unless you are ready to spend a lot of money. The hotel is really nice, staff at reception lovely and helpful. I have used the swimming pool and the gym with no problems at all. The tea/coffee making facility although not in the room is a very nice touch. The location is ace, we saw a great northern light spectacle from here which we wouldn't have been able to if we were stay in the middle of Tromso. We like it all of our stay and we will choose this place again if we'll ever come back to Tromso.

If you can get a room at a heavily discounted rate (we paid about half the full rate, which seems about right), this is a nice and good value alternative to the 4*s by the quay. This unusual hotel shares a building with the municipal swimming pool (a bonus as it's free for guests) and a clinic (the hotel is a converted hospital). Although it's a leg stretching ten minute walk from town, the elevated location means the (very small) rooms have fabulous views over the city, sea and distant mountains. Breakfast (extra charge) is a very adequate pared down version of the usual 4* stuff (nice fresh bread and good museli plus the usual cold cuts), but best of all is the breakfast dining room, a splendid and spacious hall on the 5th floor with truly magnificent views. Very family friendly, and nice staff.

I wasn't sure what to expect after reading some mixed reviews so was pleasantly surprised. We had a triple room which was a very good size. The large bathroom (with arm rests either side of the toilet and a washbasin that was clearly designed to suit wheelchair users) was the only real giveaway that this used to be a hospital. The breakfast offers a decent choice and is in a large room with windows around 2 sides. It probably offers fantastic views in the summer, but we went in December so it was still pitch black outside when we were eating! The hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the town centre. The hill's a bit steep so if you visit in winter and are a bit nervous about walking on ice then it's definitely worth getting some grips for your boots. I was really impressed with the hotel gym. There are 2 main rooms ( only 1 of these is shown on the website): 1 with resistance machines and 1 with treadmills, cross trainers, rowing machines and exercise bikes. All the equipment seemed to be very good quality and well maintained.

Highly recommend this hotel! Staff were so friendly, we were delayed at Manchester airport and missed our connection flight to Tromso the hotel was extremely accommodating- Thank you so much especially Marlin & Maria :)

The hotel is little bit away from main City center. Ordinary small rooms but neat and clean. Breakfast is very simple and better to avoid in this hotel. It's a small simple hotel. For places like Tromso it is Okay.

We stayed 2 nights and we were satisfied by the cleanliness and the helpful staff. In general,hotel rooms in Norway are really small for some reason, so keep that in mind. The location is also very good, just 5-10 mins walking to every corner of this small town and 5 minute drive to the airport. You won't regret your stay here, that's for sure!

The hotel was falsely advertised on The hotel failed to mention on this website that it is a converted hospital and is still used as a day centre. Would be great as a youth hostel, but certainly not as a three star hotel. It is also a 15 minute walk out of the city centre and up a hill, which isn't convenient given the cold and the fact that most tours leave from the centre. The only positive point was the gym, which was well equipped.
