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.

Two sisters spending one night at Thon Hotel Arendal, and must say it was a nice experience from the time we entered the reception area. The 2 receptionist were cheerful and helpful. The room was nice, the bathroom as well. Street view, and as it was Saturday, the summer night's traffic was there, but not too disturbing. As expected when... More

Checked in with pregnant partner... Not told that local bars would be very noisy not much sleep. No tea coffee making facilities in room. Dated room with hairs on towels... Radiator covers not screwed to wall... All in all not too good.

I spent one night at this Thon City property. Check-in was quite slow, due to a new computer system, according to the cheerful receptionist. I got upgraded from single room to a nice, fresh-looking double room. The room was facing away from the street and was very quiet. Comfortable bed, I slept well. The bathroom looked lovely on first sight.... More
