Perfect little hotel in mid city centre, close to transport (bus and boat). Good servcie, clean, good size rooms, high standard beds. You can open the window to fresh air and to regulate temperature. The floor in the bathroom is nice and warm. After several visits always the same excperience; I sleep well, eat well and can use my room... More

The rooms are a bit dingy with daunting interior, and the bathrooms are dated. Like many other Thon hotels, this one also needs a refurb. Nice enough for a short stay. Pleasant staff. Beware the shortage of parking spots (another parking lot vis-a-vis the hotel). Great family offers with entrance to Aqua park (Grottebadet) included in stay.

Stayed one night at this hotel. Check-in took, in my opinion, too long time (apx.15 min, I was the only customer at this point). Good beds but very small rooms. I stayed alone, but the room had been cramped for two people. Good and tasty breakfast was served at Egon restaurant.

This was our last night, before travelling to the airport. Great room with fast free wi-fi. Easy to walk around the town, with a great view of the bay! Good breakfast selection, and free coffee available 24hrs

The room is very small, and also the smallest beds I have ever seen. I am single user for a twin room, it is just enough room for one person. However the room is clean, warm and functional. the location is good, close to the airport shuttle stop, just cross the street. Breakfast is adequate. It is ok to stay... More

This hotel is ideal as a stopover from evenes airport moving on to vesteralen and lofoten. Uncomplicated, decent rooms, really nice restaurant, food was good, service very good. The scenery in front of the hotel is not too bad either. The town itself is not very appealing.

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

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....:-)
