Hotel is semi good , my view was the beautiful tromso city and i liked it very much . Tromso is a wonderful place and i saw norther lights many times in this amazing city . The breakfast was good and complete and staff was nice .

The breakfast was excellent -- there was a rotating variety of hot and cold Norwegian food, including reindeer and brown cheese. The rooms were clean. The location was good -- walking distance to all the main attractions and the bus stop for the airport bus. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. What surprised me though was that the reception did not have information on day tours from Tromso, directing me very politely to the tourist information office (which closed at 4pm; I checked into the hotel at 5pm). Also, the hair dryer didn't work, the door locking mechanism was somewhat erratic and no toiletries were supplied. I would probably try another hotel if I went back to Tromso.

Great location in a great city with the main shopping street and harbour within short walking distance. The rooms are delicate, clean and comfortable. The desert is impressive, large and with a fantastic selection. Staff is super nice - highly recommendable!

Had a superior room, with no superior feeling. Stayed for 2 nights, told the reception that wifi on my room was missing and the minibar fridge was faulty (room temperature). None of these issues was fixed during my stay. Was offered to change room, but my room type had the same wifi issue on all floors. (I guess most rooms have ok wifi coverage). The room was prepaid, and I said that I felt my stay in this hotel was not worth full price. Was not offered any kind of refund. Great location, but not the best views. Good breakfast. Nice rooms. Cleaning was ok, exept that I found items from previous guest by the bed, and the drinking glasses had some stains (hard to tell if the was really clean).

Very nice hotel. Newer breakfast area with excellent breakfast. Nice and fresh room also with aircondition. Located in center and close to shopping, bus and restaurants (Egon restaurant in the same building). City bowling near by.

No problems during stay. Rooms are good, quiet location. Breakfast is great. Wifi working good. Blinds in room could be a little thicker, rather light in the room. But this is midnight sun country - enjoy the sun! Nespresso machine in lobby, great for taking a coffee on the go. Staff friendly and helpful. Only let-down (though small) is the the receptionist also is booking rooms over the phone. And with only one on duty there was a little waiting by check-in and check-out. Can also mention that luggage storage room is small. Remember to tell front desk when you plan to come back and get your lugagge. We did not, and had to move 40-50 suitcases stacked on top of ours... All in all - nothing to complain about.

This is a budget hotel centrally placed in Tromsø, short distances to restaurants, attractions, shopping. I was amazed that a city og this size could have so many excellent restaurants. Even if it is a budget hotel it has all the necessary amenities,

Day light 24h ;) Heavy curtains fulfill requirements. Clean, tidy and nice room. Clean bathroom. Friendly personnel and tasty meals at Egon. Hotel in the center of the City so I will highly recommend it for business stay.

Very good hotel. The rooms are basic but have all you need and are clean. The bed was perfect. Breakfast is fantastic with a huge choice. Would recommend for sure to stay if you are in Tromso. Parking is not very far away although it is paid.

I stayed at the Thon Polar Hotel from 15 May till 18 May 2017 and I don't have anything bad to say. The room was clean, modern, a bit on the small side but for 1 person it was perfect. Including minibar and water cooker. It was very quit even though the hotel and my room were along the street side. Breakfast was good. A variety of things to choose from, only thing I would say it that some dishes (like egg and oatmeal) were cold but there are so many other things to choose from I don't think this is such a big deal. The staff was nice and helpful, overall I had a great stay and definitely recommend this hotel for if you are visiting Norway.
