Welcome to The Black Door!The studio is 20m2. The room feels light and airy because of the large windows, but also cozy due to muted colours and comfy furniture. Just like the bed and the sofa, the dining area stylishly seats two, and has a perfect view for aurora spotting when you switch off all the lights in the apartment. Yes, that's right: northern lights for dinner!

The space

On the ground floor of our family home, we have a lovely 20m² studio apartment. The studio has a private entrance, a complete kitchen, a double bed, small sofa and dining area. The bathroom is also private, but is situated adjacent to our laundry room. The apartment is fully equipped for two, but we can also accommodate families with small children, as we have all the stuff little ones need (aka a hell of lot of stuff). We also have a charming garden, and guests are welcome to use the patio outside the studio when it's not covered in snow. Less snowy outdoor photos will be posted when ... well :)

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

As we are a family with toddlers, we aren't the quietest hosts in mornings and afternoons, but from 19-7, we're not too loud.

Please take out your own trash, and do not leave perishable food. The green bag is for organic waste, and the grocery bag is for everything else. The trash bin is just outside the door.

You're welcome to use the laundry room, but please do not use the washing machine and dryer simultaneously, as this might blow the fuse. The fuse cabinet can not be accessed from the studio. If you do blow the fuse, please contact us immediately.

The kitchen has an induction cooker which heats things up very quickly. Above the cooker, there is a heat detector (a small box). It will make noise and switch off the cooker if things get too hot. Just push the box and the cooker should come back on.

In the ceiling there is a fire alarm that is connected to our alarm system. If you trigger it, please contact us immediately, as our alarm company needs to know whether you are safe or whether they need to send the fire brigade.

Feel free to keep the heating at your preferred temperature, but when you check out, please don't switch everything off.

We had everything we needed in a small space. The bed was super comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. Access to the washer and dryer was really helpful!

I would not hesitate to recommend a visit to The Black Door Apartment, Mikalsen's place in Tromso. It is one of the finest Air BnB rentals we have ever stayed in. The apartment is well equipped with a efficient and modern kitchen, bathroom and also very modern and efficient laundry. The apartment is very warm and comfortable also. It is a short drive from the centre of Tromso and also very close to the local bus stop. We frequently walked down town and enjoyed the spectacular scenery too. Astrid is a very approachable and helpful host as well.

Me and my boyfriend had a really great stay at the house. Clean, perfect for two people, easy connection to the city with the buses and Tromso is just great!

We spent 3 nights at the Mikalsen family's house and immediately felt at home there. The flat was clean, warm and had everything you'd need for a short stay. The bed is super comfortable and perfect for a good nights sleep after seeing the northern lights too. It's a bit far from the central area, but only a short taxi or bus ride away. Astrid and her family were great hosts and made us feel really welcome in their home. Would definitely stay here again if I made the trek up to Tromsø for the midnight sun!

The studio is clean,comfortable,really well located ( 15min by bus from the center where are all departures for the organised tours). You will quickly feel like home.Moreover the bed is very good quality. The hosts are kind and welcoming. As described in the text this is an alive house between 7-19h with the laugh of two lovely children playing together but after it s really quiet. The studio is in a safe neighborhood and you can see the notern lights from the living room 's studio. I recommend this lovely place.

It's very cosy place. You could find every necessary items in the house. There is also a market near the house. The bus station is very close to the house and if you like walking you could walk to the city centre in 20 minutes. The owners of the house are very friendly people. The view from the window is amazing and if you are lucky you have chance to see the northern lights from this view according to owners. I definitely recommend this place to stay.
