Instead of staying in a hotel, we decided to stay in an apartment primarily because it was cheaper than a hotel and there was a fully furnished kitchen allowing us to cook to further stretch the money. We paid about $150 USD a night. In addition, we booked through hotels.com allowing us to earn two night credit as part of their loyalty program.
The City Living Apartment is located right in the city center with easy access to most of the tourist attraction. Tromso itself is relatively small and compact so everything is relatively accessible anyway. We booked a studio style room which was reasonably sized. The room comes equipped with a fully furnished kitchen inclusive of the pots, plates and other cutlery. As with the older hotels we stayed in Norway, the beds are on the soft side. The best part of the apartments is that they provide free access to washer and dryer for laundry. You just need to bring the detergent.
For those who end up choosing City Living, do remember that the front desk is not manned 24 hours. There is a number to call if you do end up arriving at odd hours and if you left early like we did, you just needed to leave the keys in the apartment. No complicated check out needed..
