Nice room with a roof window and your own bathroom, in a quiet neighborhood between the airport and the city centre. Very comfortable for one person, and it also fits two. Enjoy free wifi and access to the TV room with a great view to Kvaløya.
Welcome to my spare bedroom with a 1,20 meter wide bed and your own bathroom in the top floor of my two storey apartment. It has 3 bedrooms, a TV room, living room/kitchen and 2 bathrooms, at the 2nd and 3rd floor of a large wooden house with 10 apartments.
The bedroom has a closet and a cabinet if you need some space for your luggage. It has a roof window with a nice view to the stars and sometimes the aurora - northern light. It is possible to put an extra mattress on the floor if you want to share the room with someone but not the bed.
The upstairs bathroom is placed across the hallway from your room, and has a shower and a toilet. We use the bathroom downstairs while you are visiting.
Wifi is available, and you are welcome to use the TV room next to the bedroom.
Breakfast with tea/coffee, milk, juice, eggs, bread, cheese and home made jam is served in the kitchen Saturdays and Sundays. You are welcome to fix your own breakfast in the kitchen during the weekdays, because I am off to work in the morning and won't have time to serve you then. The kitchen is only available for breakfast. Breakfast is included in the room price.
You may use the hot water kettle in the kitchen to make yourself coffee and tea any time. Coffe and tea is included in the price.
Linens and towels included.
Baby travel bed and baby linen can be provided. Baby high chair available.
Reflector vests, head lights and crampons for your shoes on icy roads are available for you to borrow in winter time, if you like to go for walks on the island.
The apartment is placed in the Bo i Nord/Workinnmarka neighborhood in Tromsø, 3,8 km from the city centre, only a 5 minute drive from the airport. Bus nr. 40 that goes from the airport and to the city centre passes by, just a 5 minute walk from the house to the bus stop. The house is also within walking distance to the University area at Breivika, a 25 minute walk, and a 10 minute walk from the Jekta shopping centre at Langnes.
I live with my 10 year old son and two cats, so if you have cat allergy this is not the place for you. If you like children or bring a child with you, this is a good place to stay!
Welcome to Tromsø!
Guests will have access to the guest room, the upstairs bathroom, the TV room and the kitchen for breakfast and for making tea or coffe during the day or evening.
Interaction with Guests
I usually eat breakfast with my guests in the weekends, and if my guests want to chat and have questions to ask, I enjoy talking with them and answer their questions. I also respect my guests privacy. Most of the time I follow my own schedule for the day, and my guests make their own plans. If a trip comes up and I have to leave the city while you are guests, I always inform you before I leave. I am available by phone or through airbnb while you have the apartment by yourself for a night or two.
The neighborhood is quiet, with a nice vegetation around the houses, not windy in summer time, we have the evening sun - and the midnight sun can be enjoyed from my balcony in the middle of the summer.
Bus 40 goes to and from from the airport, stops in my neighborhood, and goes further on to the city centre. It is easy to get to and from the airport to my place, and the bus drive from my street to the city centre is only a 10 minute drive.
Other Things to Note
On sunny, warm summer days (we don't have too many of them, but it happens!), you are very welcome to use the balcony. If you bring a child, we also have a trampoline outside during the summer season to enjoy.
I offer a cheap and clean accommodation with a private bathroom and good standards, including breakfast, coffee/tea whenever you want, bed linen/towels and wifi. I therefore hope that you understand that I do not offer any further discounts. The price is not negotiable.
Quiet after 10.00 PM.
The kitchen is only available for breakfast.
We had a great stay at Katrine's, she was a wonderful host! Everything was nice and tidy, she made us feel home and always was there for advice and tips!
Thanks a lot Katrine!
A very nice experience. The host (Katrine& Eilsen were helpful. The room was clean and tidy. Safe and quite neighbourhood. We experienced a true norwegian lifestyle.
We felt just like home in Katrine's house, in which we owned our privacy as well as the freedom. The room was clean, cosy and warm. Katrine was thoughtful and respectful to her guest. This is our first airbnb experience. Fortunately, we chose Katrine's house. You can really see the Norwegian's daily life in a city full of tourism. Isn't it great? Hope that the following travelers can follow the house rule and keep the trust. Thank you Katrine and Urlik. Absolutely recommend.
Det var helt fantastisk å bo hos Katrine i Tromsø! Rommet er stort og rent, med komfortabelt seng, ovn, skrivepult og masse brosjyrer og informasjon om det man kan gjøre i området. Privat baderommet med god dusj er også veldig rent, og utstyrt med alt som man trenger av dusjsåpe, shampoo, håndklær, hårføner osv. Leiligheten ligger i et veldig fint nabolag, med bussholderplassen ikke langt i fra leiligheten og gode bussforbindelser til sentrum og flyplassen. Jeg gikk fra leiligheten til sentrum et par ganger og brukt rundt 45 minutter på det. Jeg fått masse kos fra Katrine sine to katter, som også gjørde meg til å føle velkommen.
Katrine selv er en kjempehyggelig vert - hun lagde en riktig god frokost til meg på lørdag og søndag, og vi fått prate sammen om masse interessant, både om Tromsø og om livet generelt :-). Hun var behjelpelig med spørsmål og tips og var så snill å kjøre meg til flyplassen når jeg skulle reise hjem.
Jeg kan absolutt anbefaler Katrine som airbnb vert og vil gjerne si tusen takk for denne gangen! Håper at vi ses igjen snart. :-)
It was easy to find Katrine's apartment and we received a warm welcome from her and the cats. We had to be up early next morning to get to the airport but Katrine gave us a lift so we arrived at the perfect time. As well as a comfortable bed and our own sitting room there was also plenty of good conversation in the short time were there. Thank you Katrine.
The room and bathroom was very clean and had everything we needed. Katrine's house is a short walk from large supermarkets. She was very helpful, hospitable and responsive throughout our stay. Would highly recommend this place.
I had a wonderful stay with my mother at Katrine her place. Everything is well organised, easy going and very comfortable. Advisable for everybody going to Tromso!

I am a librarian living with my 10 year old son and two cats (Lotta and Gabriel) in an apartment big enough for you to come and stay for some days - we would enjoy that. I haven't used airbnb myself as a guest, but would like to try it out on my next holiday.
