It's a pretty decent hotel, looks like they had done some brush ups of what looked like an older inside compared to the outside and some of the facilities in the room. The check in was quick and very friendly, the room was nice and clean. My room was facing the reception, which was a bit dull, but I was... More

Dear Smaskifa. Thank you for this nice review and for choosing Thon Hotel Nordlys. We appreciate the positive feedback regarding our location and service. There are not supposed to be any lights on in the minibar unless the door is open, so I am afraid that the one in your room must have been broken. I apologize for the inconvenience.... More

The rooms could definitely do with a refurb; but the hotel is situated in a nice and quiet street, overlooking the sea. Fair amount of parking spots. The bathroom was not clean enough, and the staff members could be more welcoming. Good WiFi-connection.

No worries, great hotel. Good food, magnificent view of the harbour. Close to the city centre (Glasshuset), has its own restaurant (Egon) with great food - though the pizza buffet is not top class. New tv and Internett working well.

We stayed here the night before we joined the Hurtigruten having travelled from Trondheim by train where we had stayed at another Thon Hotel. The very nice person on reception gave us rooms overlooking the harbour as we were visiting from Scotland. Breakfast very good - free wifi excellent and lovely rooms. Nice touch with free coffee (Nspresso) for guests.... More

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
