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.

We were greeted in impeccable English by the very helpful, friendly Julian, who helped us with parking and appeared genuinely interested in our trip. The room was fantastic, excellent facilities and amazing view of the beautiful harbour. We went on a trip with Aktiv Events to catch fish in the harbour and then cook it for our dinner on one...

Stayed last weekend with my boyfriend and had a great time! Location is perfect, harbour in front, Grottebadet swimhall 2min walk away, whole centrum just around the corner. Room was tidy and cousy, we absolutely loved marine-style decoration! We just had partial seaview, but that was quite nice also. Service was good, receptionist even spoke us finnish, awesome!

This is a fair hotel in the centre of Harstad. I got a double room, but it was still quite small. The room was tidy and well equipped with a minibar and a waterboiler and coffee and tea. The bathroom had heating in the floor which is a good thing in Norway. The hotel cooperates with the neighbour restaurant. I... More

Stayed for three nights this week and one night the King & Queen of Sweden were there too. Good quality, clean hotel, with efficient, friendly staff and one young male receptionist was exemplary each time asked a question (no name badge seen). Clearly a hotel aimed at the business traveller, so can be rather soul less. Beware the narrow single... More

We stayed a night here on a tour of the Lofoten Islands. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was very good. The reception staff were friendly enough. The booking included breakfast which was adequate, but nothing amazing. The hotel is centrally located and has a car park opposite, which is convenient.
