“Best location in Kirkenes”
Reviewed 22 May 2011

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.

While some may describe this hotel has a 'business hotel' because they have conference facilities, it is a very modern hotel with all the amenities one could want in a hotel in Kirkenes. The location right on the waterfront means that the views from the lobby, the restaurant and many of the rooms are simply breathtaking.
The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with our sightseeing and transportation, and the food in the restaurant was some of the best we had on our trip.
Kirkenes is so small that the town center is only two minutes away by foot.
Although the hotel does not have a fitness center, they do have an arrangement with the gym in town - again only five minutes away.
Definitely a recommendation for Kirkenes!

When you first arrive in Kirkenes you wonder whether you should stay or go. The same is true for the Thon Hotel in town. The exterior is bland and dull. Once inside, it is a very different story. The staff are brilliant - very helpful and speak every language known to mankind. The rooms are a good size, very clean and beautifully styled. Our room looked out over the fjord and we could watch ships come and go. The beds are so soft - felt like I'd died and gone to heaven. Perfect internet connection (Ifree). Huge shower; loads of hot water. Just beautiful! The restaurant (subject of a seperate review) - worth coming all the way to the top of the World just to sample the chocolate mouse. Kirkenes is the most unlikely place to fall in love with but you will and the Thon is the best in town.

I stayed here 1 night, the hotel was clean and warm, I was there in the winter time, it was extremnly cold in Kirkenes -28.c and it was snowing all the time, but hotel was warm, the temperture in my room was perfect, the bathrooms was basic but clean.
They gave me internet card and I could use the internet for free.
Breakfast was great, fresh sea food, good choice of fish, fruits ect.
Generally prices in the hotel were hight, but usually Norway is expensive.
It was about 10 minutes from the city center and on the way to the airport you could stop to see famous ice hotel
