New, modern hotel on sea front with good views. Quiet and peaceful. Room not large but very clean and adequate, with ironing board and iron. Excellent bathroom with double size shower. Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate (till it ran out) in the breakfast area. Our main problem was with the reception, who told us we had arrived too early! We had come from the Hurtigruten boat and, OK, it was before usual check-in time (about 10.30 a.m.) but there didn't seem to be anyone around. We were told the hotel had been fully booked the night before but on our observations that would appear to be extremely unlikely. It has 300 bedrooms - full, in Kirkenes?? Just saying 'You're too early' did not seem the best way to talk to guests. He didn't even tell us we could help ourselves to tea or coffee while we waited. Apart from this the rest of the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and pleasant.
