The best place in Bodø before or after a visit to the Lofoten. The location is splendid and the entree marvelous. If the sun is there you should spend some time on the terrace with a (very expensive) beer or wine. Everything is nearby (boats, ferry, airport, shops etc).

We stopped over for a night before boarding to the Lofoten. Thon Hotel is nicely located on the harbour, 5 minutes drive to the ferry peer. There is a nice Egon restaurant by the seaside. Staff is lovely and helpful. Rooms are very nice.

We had a lovely room over looking the little harbour. Indeed the wifi worked well. Free Nespresso for guests in the reception's lounge. A very enjoyable stay. This is close to the express boat Dock to the Lafoten.

Thon Nordlys served nicely as an overnight stop and launch point for traveling to/from Lofoten. Rooms were clean, ample size, and comfortable (don't expect a great view, though). We walked to and from the hotel to the airport - it's only 1km (less than half a mile) along quiet residential streets and takes 10 minutes. Easily done if you don't... More

It's been two weeks since our trip and I find it hard to remember this hotel. It was just your basic hotel without any charm, simple basic amenities. The rooms were clean and its size was ok. Our room was on the second floor, but on the other side of the building and it turned out that second floor is... More

Room was small, but the view of the harbor made it worth it. Staff were nice, the location was great and the price was right. I have stayed here before and will do again...Close to city center, train station and airport...

Spacious reception lobby with lounge seating area and free to use computers to one side, check in was fuss free and we were moved to a double from a twin bedded room cheerfully. We had booked a standard room which is what we got. The room was clean and quite well appointed, the shower (only) room again clean. Clearly the... More

If you on are spending the night as a stopover in Bodo then I guess this hotel will do the trick. Good location on the waterfront with views across to the mountains. The rooms are nothing to write home about compared to other chains such as Radisson Blu and Rica. I wouldn't want to spend more than a night in... More

It is a very simple standard.. but clean and the staff was friendly. Lovely location right across from the water - I always find it difficult to get a room in Bodø - so book EARLY!! The Hotel has an Egon restaurant.. - the free breakfast was better than the dinner I had the night before. -

This is in some ways a modest little hotel - unlike some of the other big modern hotels in Norway. However, this made it feel more cosy and welcoming than others. No space was wasted on large public areas. Our room was a moderate size but with the advantage of a splendid view over the harbour to the mountains and... More
