The Edge Hotel

on the edge of the harbour, with an edgy design and (probably) on the edge of displacing the Ishavshotel as the luxiest hotel in Tromso (enough puns), the Edge is the place for some serious tlc after the rigours of a day on safari, or a night out spotting the Northern Lights. Our upper level rooms have serious views out to the ocean or the mountains, are a good 24sq m with stylish charcoal grey, arctic blue, aurora green or fire red fabrics and furnishings. Perfectly located for our airport transfer & safaris pick up/drop off point and Storgata if you want some retail therapy at any point. Clients rave about the breakfast: the local produce used, the menu and the chef staffed waffle station.
