Stayed here for a long weekend in November. Very close to the airport and was the first stop on the Airport bus. Initially a bit disappointed when we got to the room as we had booked a king room and arrived to a twin. We thought we had been given the wrong room at first as there was a note...

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip. Centrally located, close to restaurants and buses. Very pleased with the junior suite which is large and comfortable. Excellent bed, perfect reading light, kettle, coffee machine, fridge (no minibar) and very quiet. Spotless and spacious bathroom. The lighting in the room was weak taking the November darkness in Tromsø into account....

I stayed here a couple of times since 2012. The hotel is still nice and very conveniently located, but there were some less good points, notably the wifi system! However, the rooms are clean (formerly I have stayed in rooms with a view, which was not the case now), and the staff quite nice - nothing special, though, except that...

Thank you for reviewing us. Good to hear that you enjoyed rooms and friendly staff. We have experienced some problems with the wifi earlier, but this is over now. The breakfast is a little bit changed after we became Scandic, but it is still very popular by our guests. We wish you a warm welcome at your next Tromsø-visit! Kind...

Scandic is just the perfect place to stay in Tromso. It's centrally located, just beside the bus stop for catching buses to the airport and has very comfortable and clean rooms. Probably the best we came across in our budget in Norway. Their complimentary breakfast is truly the icing on the cake with a huge spread, and a variety of...

Hotel was at city center of Tromso with good rooms with great view. Fairly good spread of breakfast. They had complimentary tea-coffee 24 hours at the reception which was very much needed in Tromso cold weather. The most amazing thing is we could see northern lights from the hotel room though it was not that bright due to city lights....

Nice hotel in the centre of a fantastic city. The stuff was very friendly, the lunch buffet very good and with a good variety to choose from, the conference room was exactly what we needed, so this hotel is perfect for business meetings. I will definitely use it again in the future.

If you like to stay in Tromsø to watch the northern lights, stay at the Scandic Grand Hotel. The airport bus stops right in front of the hotel, good rooms and delicious food. And it is very central to everything in Tromsø.

My only complaint is that we only had one night in Tromso! The staff was welcoming, the breakfast was amazing and the view from our room was incredible! We were on the 7th floor in room 715. Tromso is such a beautiful place and I hope I can return there for a longer stay.
