Thon Hotel in Harstad, Norway has an excellent view of the harbor and surrounding mountains. The vista is truly incredible in the summer months in the land of the midnight sun. Fortunately each room has very heavy curtains to block out the light so you can get a good night's sleep. Norway is not an inexpensive country and the hotel... More

And in a great area for excursions and in general outdoor activities. I've been here for two nights and had a great double room with also sofas and all possible equipments. The bathroom was equipped with both a bath and a separate area for the shower. All perfectly clean and well organized. Connected to the Egon restaurant from the lobby... More

Great view, nice and clean room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Newspapers and coffee/tea + water dispenser in the lobby. Bus to the airport stops right outside the hotel. Good breakfast included (very nice smoothies and Norwegian waffels). Surprisingly nice for a low budget hotel - couldn`t ask for more....:-)

I have been staying at Thon since 2012 on my quarterly visits to Harstad and have always had a very nice and comfortable stay. The desk staff and other attendants are very friendly & helpful. The morning sunrise & evening sunset views from the window are very beautiful. The location of the hotel is walking distance from all the amenities... More

Stayed one night at this easy to find hotel. Rooms were clean and comfy, staff friendly and helpful. Parked in the courtyard. The food in Egon's was very good and breakfast was more than adequate, especially the nicest porridge I have ever tasted. The only thing stopping me from giving the highest rating was that the bed was a little... More

We stayed here for one night before taking the Hurtigruten ship to Tromso. The reception welcome was friendly and warm. The room was very spacious and clean. The Egon pub style restaurant was also welcoming and efficiently run. Our meal was well presented and tasty at a price to be expected in Norway. We had a comfortable night's sleep before... More

We based ourselves in Thon for our New Year trip to Harstad and it was the perfect spot to strike out from into the surrounding area. Every member of staff we met was helpful, friendly and interested in what we were doing during our stay. Ingvild from the Tourist office (just along the road from Thon) was a dream, organising...

We arrived here quite late after travelling via train and two buses from Abisko, but got a warm welcome regardless. I really liked the room we got. It was decorated in a nautical style which was very fitting and not something you’d often see in the usual monotonous hotel rooms. We had a view over the waterfront (unfortunately we couldn’t...

Slept two nights in the hotel. Nice basic hotel. Ok rooms and good breakfast. The cleaning of the rooms was not satisfactory. The hotel has a perfect location in the centre of the city. We can not recommend Egon restaurant on the first floor.
