Those familiar with Thon hotels will know what to expect: Nordic simplicity, cleanliness, nice, supportive and professional staff, comfortable beds, the typical red umbrellas to borrow, hot water kettle in the room, value for money. The addition of a free Nespresso machine offering good coffee free is a nice addition, especially in Norway where it is not that common. First... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. i was here to run the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso. Our room was on the 6th floor and had been completely redone. When I commented on how nice the room was to the front desk person, she said that we were only the 4th guest to use it. We were impressed... More

Stay for two nights, one night ran Midnight Sun Marathon then flew back to Oslo. Did not stay entire two nights. Room was very small, dust balls on floor, no lotions...etc in bathroom. Was just a dingy room. No lobby downstairs, it was dissapointing.

My husband was running in the Midnight Sun Marathon and we needed a place to stay a few nights. The Thon was a great location and we got a very good deal on price, I think one of cheapest we could get in Tromso at that time. Yes, the room was tiny, but immaculate. Modern European style bathroom with heated... More

I stayed here on business and found the hotel less than satisfactory. It started at check-in already, where I (and plenty others) were forced to wait some 15 minutes as the person who could perform the check-in wasn't present. There was one woman present who was on training, and as such was not authorized to do check-ins yet. The room... More

Firstly the price we got for this hotel was great and in retrospect that was probably because they were doing renovations and nothing was working. Location is good and the room was a good size but it was freezing cold and the air-conditioning and heating did not seem to work. There was no way you could control the air conditioning... More

This budget hotel gave great value for money. We had a triple room, which was a good size and ensuite, with underfloor heating. There was free tea and coffee in the hotel lobby too which was very welcome after a day out sightseeing. The restaurant where we had breakfast was attached to the hotel. This was good too, as you...

A great little hotel with compact but immaculate rooms, comfy beds and helpful and friendly staff. There is also an 'Egon' restaurant attached where you can get a superb breakfast.
