Skansen Hotell
Ranked #16 of 18 Hotels in Tromso
Reviewed 25 March 2017

You aren't going to be staying in your hotel much in Tromso, just sleeping there. Skansen provides everything you need to sleep, shower, eat and get back outside to enjoy the wonders of the arctic.

Our room was conveniently located near the breakfast room and the 'night entrance' doorway, so we only had to go through reception to check in and out (both painless and fast processes).

The receptionist was able to recommend some great restaurants and we enjoyed our time there all the more thanks to that.

The hotel is on the main shopping street and mere minutes away from the central meeting area for (most of) the tour groups.

I stayed at the Skansen Hotel for four nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is located at the northern end of the town. As the town is small almost everything is within walking distance.

We were given a nice room overlooking the bridge and mountains. The room was quite spacious. There was a fridge, microwave and hot water kettle. Room was adequately heated.

Breakfast was good.

The mattress was slightly too soft for my liking.

It would have been better if they provided hair shampoo and also glasses in the room.

All in all it was a very pleasant stay. It is not the cheapest but is priced right for Norway. Recommended.

I really not recommend, and I ll not give just one star because of two employees, the guy who made our check in (earlier than the regular time), and the woman who made our check out, Ludmil, she was lovely! But the beds is very lousy, bad sleep, the smell in the room was horrible, breakfast is poor, very poor, the service during the breakfast is horrible. We ask to get in warm our baby's milk, and they don't wanna do. Localization is a little far from the main attractions. Price is not compatible with the service.

I stayed there for three nights in a single room.
Good location, excellent and helpful staff, great breakfast, good wifi, spacious room but could have been cleaner, good value for money, a bit old-fashioned, would stay again.

The hotel has a great location, situated on the main high street; everything you have to see or tours to organise are within walking distance. Airport is just 15 min by bus/taxi (would recommend the taxi as it's almost the same price/if you not travelling alone, and driving you right to the hotel). Lovely, cosy little hotel with friendly and helpful staff members. The breakfast is a typical European breakfast style with tea/coffee/juice/milk, bread,salami,butter,eggs; some nutella,jams and some cereals.
Nice and warm room, floor heating in the bathroom. Bed could be more comfy, but it's ok for few nights.
Perfect hotel if you are staying for few days in Tromsø :)
