Fodor's Expert Review Scandic Ishavshotel

Fr. Langesgt. 2, Tromsø, Troms, 9008, Norway

Shaped like an ocean liner docked at the harbor–-there's even a slender mast topped by a Norwegian flag–-Tromsø's snazziest hotel stretches over the sound toward Ishavskatedralen. Inside, the comfortable rooms are also shipshape, with polished wood furnishings with brass trim that evoke life on the high seas. The breakfast here gets rave reviews and winss awards.
