Located centraly, spacious and clean room, great shower, friendly staff but the best is the breakfast buffet with plenty of cold and warm dishes and local food to explore. Bed was a bit too soft and the elevator made some noise

Outstanding front desk staff, great rooms, and a lovely breakfast. Front desk staff were very helpful with all of our questions and helped us pick where to visit. Would recommend staying with Scandic as their level of service is all good.

Wow what a breakfast. I had scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon and caviar. Certainly set me up for the day!. The front foyer had hot water with coffee, tea milk etc which was free any time of the day. The room was comfortable with a good shower. It is all anyone needs.

I have spent 4 nights in Grand and fortunately have been alone, as the room would be too small for 2 persons. Tine bathroom, with not even a small shelve to place the toiletries. The room was clean, with towels changed every day, but during all 4 nights the bed linen has not been changed even once. The breakfasts were...

Having been ' Bumped' from a long standing booking at Radison Blu, this hotel was given to us after a long days travel so we started off being less than pleased. But we found the room excellent, the breakfast good and the position ideal for our day in Tromso. We didn't use the restaurant in the evening because it was...

Tromso ... The hotel is in the centre of the city, on the main street. Easy connection from airport (we used a taxi, which was 200Nek, but the Flybussen stops outside (90Nek adults, 40 senior). The cathedral is about a 3 minute walk, with shops in between. There are a few supermarkets around you and for the faint hearted, a...

My experience is that Scandinavian hotel rooms are hot during winter. The Scandic Grand Tromsø is no difference. Despite that fact our room was fine with a comfortable bed, a powerful shower and very clean. The buffet breakfast is well replenished every morning and has a wide selection including salmon and local cheeses and meats. Its central location allows for...

Perfect location, very friendly any helpful staff but: elevator is very loud and window does not isolate the noise from the people outside. Gives a hard time to sleep through. Room is nice, however is in need of getting a new polish on the floor which is run down. And there is no safe to lock belongings. Make sure to...

Does the job; great beds, clean rooms and OK breakfast. In Tromsø you wanna stay outside anyways, watching the breathtaking nature, northern light and maybe attending an orcra-safari... But friendly staff and all in all a satifying stay.
