Very small! Not very well equipped. But we got what we needed out of the stay there. The area has plenty of shopping and public transportation near. Simon was very nice and helpful.
The time we have spent in Tromso was great! Because of the great view of Simon’s apartment was also really good to stay “at home”, when the wetter was not so good for outward activities. We wish we could have such wonderful view at our place. Simon, THANK YOU for the opportunity to stay at your home!

Like everybody has stated already, and with much reason: You can't beat the view! We spent long hours just at that window, at day- and at nighttime, and on our last night even saw some very nice Northern Lights right there!
We were also very lucky to be able to spend our few days in Tromsø in privacy in this nice, clean apartment - away from the fellow NL chasers' crowd (Where are you from? Which bus did you take last night? etc...)
Situated ideally half way between the center of town and the beach at the South end of the island (which is a very good dark place to watch the Northern Lights without spending money for it), the apartment is well communicated by public transport, and very quiet.
Simon sends well thought-out practical information when confirming the booking, e.g. street-view links for the main landmarks and bus stops which helps with the planning and saves time.
A very good choice and a wonderful stay!
Great place with great view of the sea!
Very nice flat right at the water. The view onto the fjord and the mountains out of the windows of living room and bed room are priceless! We even saw Northern Lights out of the flat (its still better to go somewhere away from city lights). Supermarket in close proximity. Stay here if you are in Tromso!
Im very grateful to Simon for taking our late booking. Directions were spot on and the apartment has a perfect location right on the water. The place is in close proximity to the centre of town and has an amazing view of the mountains also.
Overall a very nice clean apartment with all the amenities one would need - including the fishing rods!
The yuletide sodas left by Simon were also very much appreciated :)
Will stay here again if I return to Tromso.
I stayed at Simon's flat for a week over New Year 2013 with two friends. The panoramic view lives up to all expectations. The bed is comfortable and everything was very clean. The flat has a fully equipped kitchen, and a table to sit at while eating. There was also a big supermarket just five minutes walk away. This is very important given that eating out in Norway can be very expensive. The flat was just 20 minutes walk from the town centre and where all the tourist tours leave from. There was a fold out bed in the office for the third person, but it was only really suitable for a small person. My friend slept on the couch instead which was very comfortable. We also made use of the netflix on Simon's smart TV on one evening. We thought we had the best accommodation going from all the people we met along the way. All the advantages of a flat and we even found a hottub and sauna on the cruise ships passing through town! You can either use them for free or pay a small fee depending on the ship.
Simon checked in with us at check-in and check-out and was available all the time for questions - not that we really had any as he had left clear and helpful instructions.
The flat is great. The view out the window is amazing. It has a great location. The bus stop to the center (bus 34) is right out the front door. There is an excellent grocery store, even closer. The clothes washer was a great convenience, too.
Simon and his girlfriend even met us at the ferry terminal! They were terrific hosts and we would totally stare there again.
Perfect guest. Super clean and tidy. Happy to host them again.
Simon is a great guy with a very interesting background. We had great discussions and had a lot in common. He is respectful, clean and appreciative, it was a pleasure to have him stay with me.
Great to deal with people like Simon. Would recommend to others!
Simon was a great guest to have—super communicative, friendly, considerate and flexible. Was a pleasure to have him staying on my flat. Would welcome him again. Recommended :)
Simon and his girlfriend are very nice! They are uncomplicated, clean and it was really a pleasure to host them!!

Simon e la sua compagna sono stati ospiti molto attenti alle regole della casa e siamo stati molto contenti di averli avuto ospiti.
I've only got to spend one week with Simon, I wish it was way more. He is awesome! As Eivind writes, you won't regret it!
Have known Simon since we went to school together 6 years ago. He's a great guy. Simon offers good company, and is reliable. Whether you have him as your host or your guest, you won't regret it.
I have known Simon since we went to high school together. He is very nice and trusthworthy and fun to be around. Having Simon as your host or renting your room is most likely going to be a good experience for everyone involved.
