Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
The property was clean and everyone was helpful and courteous. The rooms were sparse when it came to amenities and the room was just given fresh towels during the week (no cleaning service) and there was no room servicing on Sunday. We wish it was clearer that the hotel was part of the university hospital and on the outskirts of town - not in town. While close on a map to downtown Tromsø, taxi fares were quite high and buses were inconvenient to go into town, for activities, or to the airport.

The hotel is next to the hospital, yet it does not feel as such. Great place to stay

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I had no idea this hotel was in a hospital, we had to park a bit away and it was extremely hard to find the main entrance because we didn’t know the hotel was in the hospital. Beds extremely narrow but the room was very clean.
