Interaction with Guests

Astrid, was a great host she really did go the extra mile and beyond to make me feel welcome and introduced me to local Tromso life. Her apartment has fantastic views and is well located next to a bus stop which is a short bus ride into town. It's also close to the airport where the reindeer hang out!
she is a nice and interesting person, with good knowledge of outside world,
Astrid is an amazing host. We spent many hours while having breakfast and we discussed so many things about life in and outside of Norway. I probably learnt much more about Norway during 5 days of my visit than I had known having had lived in Norway for last year and a half. The view is spectacular and it is easy to get to the city. Astrid has also excellent tips what to see and where to go in the city. Strongly recommend - I had great holidays and will definitely come back!
I stayed at Astrid's place for 4 nights and I would highly recommend her place for all tourists who would like to visit Tromso. Her home is very clean and the room is perfectly cozy! For a person who hasnt seen snow for the past 5 years, the view of mountains covered with white blanket through the room is stunning! I was also lucky enough to be able to see the nothern lights at her terrace the first night I arrived. Besides, Astrid is a very friendly, warm and caring person. She was being very helpful by offering me good and useful sight-seeing advice. It was so touching she even lent me her boots when she saw me wear improper winter shoes. She was afraid that I would feel freezing. I really appreciate all her help and her hospitality. Thank you very much Astrid. :)
Nice place and great host
Though the wheather was not easy for travel, I had good time in her home
I have walked btw her home and city center several times. It took almost 30 min and not difficult to find the way.
Warm welcoming and kind explanation.
I cannot tell enough how much I enjoyed my stay at Astrid's place. I felt like I stayed with a friend, all was thanks to how Astrid received me. We had very nice and pleasant talks whereby she shared her wealth of interesting and wonderful experiences. I have also learnt a lot about Tromso, Norway and its peoples from different regions. Very enriching and enlightening stories.
Astrid gave me very useful advice, she knows everything about Tromso and is very advanced in hi-tech.
Astrid's place is convenient, only a few minutes from the airport as well as the city centre by bus. It also has fabulous balconies for sitting outside and enjoy the view of the sea and part of the city, and of course the Northern lights, which I was lucky to enjoy the evening before I left Tromso on the balkony of Astrid's house.
The appartment is cosy, warm and very neatly kept.
I will definitely be promotingTromso to my network and of course will recommend Astrid's place to every solo traveller who wants to come and visit Tromso.
Astrid welcomed me into her home for a week during my stay in Tromso. I felt right at home in Astrid's apartment which has great views towards the surrounding mountains. On arrival Astrid gave me a detailed run down on her apartment, all the attractions to see in Tromso and how to get around.
Daylight hours in Tromso are few at this time of year, so when I wasn't out seeing the sites I was quite happy to relax in the apartment. Astrid has great stories to tell of her travels and time spent working abroad and shared with me her vast knowledge of the Tromso area.
The apartment is conveniently located between the airport and the city, both of which are within comfortable walking distance so I never needed to take the bus. Fantastic views from the roof terrace, where on one night I was able to see the Northern Lights.
In all, a memorable stay in the beautiful city of Tromso. Astrid kindly welcomed me into her very warm and homely apartment in what can be a very cold and testing place in the winter time. Thanks Astrid!
