6/10 Good

The property was clean and everyone was helpful and courteous. The rooms were sparse when it came to amenities and the room was just given fresh towels during the week (no cleaning service) and there was no room servicing on Sunday. We wish it was clearer that the hotel was part of the university hospital and on the outskirts of town - not in town. While close on a map to downtown Tromsø, taxi fares were quite high and buses were inconvenient to go into town, for activities, or to the airport.

I had no idea this hotel was in a hospital, we had to park a bit away and it was extremely hard to find the main entrance because we didn’t know the hotel was in the hospital. Beds extremely narrow but the room was very clean.

Pingvinhotellet UNN Tromsø (Attached Uni Hospital)
Hotel is very clean and tidy, but it must be clear that it is attached to the university hospital. This is a little strange as you walk through the hospital entrance to get to the reception, and the canteen is shared. As long as this is not an issue the hotel is more than acceptable, with a very clean room and nice bathroom.

Great value for money.
The hotel is really good value for money compared to what you will pay if you stay at a hotel in town. The bus stop is right outside the hotel and buses run frequently and it was never a problem for us to get to town even with heavy snow. It is kind of strange staying at a hotel in a hospital but the rooms are great and the breakfast selection is really good.

Good hotel. Great service. The hotel is adjacent to a major hospital but it’s not loud at all. It’s also a bus/taxi/car ride away from the center of town but this wasn’t a huge inconvenience.
