I was there for only 1 night. Checked in late and checked out about 11 in the morning. I had booked a small room just for sleeping and that was fine. Being a Sunday, the restaurant was open till 11pm and that helped helped to get a bite. The staff were courteous generally. Would not mind staying again. Good value... More

I was at Thon on the first week of June. A good reasonable place to stay. Clean hotel rooms, good spread of breakfast. A very friendly and courteous staff. The rooms are a bit noisy specially when the cinema hall next door finishes it show, you can hear reviews of the movie sitting in your room on the 5th floor.... More

We stayed here 1 night after having a rather unpleasant experience at another location in the area. The staff was very welcoming and they offered parking in a garage. The rooms where clean and the size was good. Everything in Arendal was within walking distance.

I was in this hotel for a two-night stay, the room was clean and nice. The breakfast was great. The coffee was good. I liked the little "daily special" thing that was there for breakfast. The reception staff was very friendly and nice

Thon Arendal is located in the centre of Arendal close to everything you need. There is a friendly and helpfull staff and the rooms are clean. The rooms, at least the most dated ones, have seen better days and the restrooms are very small. The soundproofing is also a bit dissapointing, remember to bring your earplugs if you are a... More

Central location. Reasonably sized room. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi available. Good buffet breakfast spread. Room rate was NOK 1495 with breakfast included. Clean throughout. Not a grand hotel but a good workmanlike place ideal for a short stay on business. Would use again.

The room (601) was not very large and with an extra bad it seemed quite small, but it was ok for one night. The breakfast was good, the coffee also good and the hotel has, in the lobby, free coffee. I saw a place for kids and when we arrived, they gave us something for our child (a drawing book,... More

As most of the Thon hotels, this hotel has a friendly staff and clean and nice rooms. No extravaganza, but perfect for a short stay. The location is very central. The breakfast is generous. This is very good value for money! I'll be back next year.
