Washcloths cost extra and not in your room rate according to housekeeping. Found another maid to give us four--two for today and two hidden in our closet under our clothes for the next day. Would you believe that the next maid actually went through our closet/clothes and

Dear 4101pine, Thank you for the review. We offer extra amenities in our upgraded rooms. (superior rooms, junior suites and master suites). You can easily choose room categories on our web page, and if these thing are important to you, I would recommend you to book an upgraded room for your next visit :-) We do not offer luggage service, but we have a trolley all our guest can use to make it easier to bring up luggage :-)

The Scandic is in a great location on Tromso and the pictures for the hotel make it look worth the premium you can pay. However, the property is showing signs of aging with broken shades in some rooms, floors are worn, and the bathrooms were average. This is equivalent to a

We took the bus from the airport to the hotel. The bus is just as easy as the taxi and you can store plenty of suitcases in the storage area. It is like a big tour bus and goes to the hotel stopping at a couple other places in town. It’s easy to find in the airport and you can’t get lost. We never used taxis in the city, we used the public bus system to get around.

Without any sofa beds/extra beds, the master suites have 1 king size bed. Not possible to book connecting rooms, but of course you can have rooms close to each other.

Hi! Some of our junior suites have a sea view, and some of them have a city view. :-) What you will get depends on availability. If you want to be guaranteed sea view, you have to book either a superior room or a master suite.
