We stayed at the apartments run by the hotel rather than the hotel itself. We had a first floor apartment which was great as we could see the Arctic cathedral out of the bedroom window, albeit between two houses! When we arrived, the original apartment we were given smelt of fish so we asked to move and they were very apologetic and helpful. The new one was fine: immaculately clean, big comfy sofa, lots of channels on the TV, very warm and nice underfloor heating in the shower room, airy and quiet. In terms of equipment it was bizarre; wine glasses but no kettle or sharp knife (we had to tear the really nice Norwegian bread we bought!!) and only one saucepan. But we felt that if we had really cared enough to ask they would have given us more stuff. they were just a little laid back; its not a Centerparcs inventory situation !! The apartment was just up the road from the nicest bit of the town centre so the location was good. There is a Thai restaurant opposite so we ate there on the first night. Tromso is very epensive and this wasn'tt too bad; about thirty quid for 2 courses. We also, I am ashamed to say, ate at Burger King one lunchtime tand that was 20 quid for the two of us. So having the apartment and self catering helped a lot.
