I would give it 3.5 stars. The hotel is right in the center. We booked this hotel because they have rooms/apt with kitchens. It is very expensive in Norway to eat out and it is great way to save some money by preparing food for yourself. The kitchen however does not provide basic cooking supplies, like oil, salt & pepper....

This review is being placed under both City Living Tromso and the Viking Hotel Apartments as we booked the former, but ended up staying in the later. Both are owned and managed by the same company. My wife and I and my two elderly parents stayed in Tromso over new year 2016/2017 for a week. We booked two apartments in...

Dear Jack Wonderful, Thank you for the review. It was a long review, but I read through all of it, and I can only say that I'm sorry that your stay in Tromsø was not as you had expected. When City Living is fully booked, we make sure that the guest who are moved to Viking gets an upgrade. We...

Came here 2nd time to participate in the Polar Night Semi Marathon. It is very convenient located just off Storgate (main shopping street) and close to bus station, super markets, restaurants etc. If you are staying in the Tromsoe area you need no car, busses are a little expensive, but ok. The apartment I stayed in hada double bed, Kitchenette...

The room we stayed in was comfortable, warm and cozy. A big thumbs up for the mattress which was neither too soft nor too hard - just the right level of comfort for me. The room has a small kitchenette, which is helpful given that Tromso is an expensive city. The location of the hotel is very good, it is...

Not the biggest of rooms, but it's really just a bed for the night. It had a double bed, one side of which was right up against the wall. Small wardrobe which you could hang a few things in. Enough cooking bits to do the basics. Bathroom good, with powerful shower and plenty of hot water to warm you up....

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of November. We thought it was an excellent base to explore Tromso at a reasonable price compared to other options.

We were given a room on the second floor facing the main road when we requested for a quieter room at the time of booking. It was especially noisy till wee morning on Friday and Saturday night and did not sleep well at all. Other than that, location is good and facilities fair.

I stayed here 4 nights. The location was great that you can reach every where in 5-10 minutes on foot. The room was very comfortable and big.
