Stayed here for 2 nights, and we really liked it. Room was spacious and seemed newly renovated. The bed was very good. We had a balcony with great view. The location is perfect, close to Pollen, and some great shopping. Staf in reception were helpful. Breakfast was good. I will stay here again if visiting Arendal again.

I found this hotel ok, nothing special, all basic stuff worked. Clean rooms, friendly staff and central in Arendal. Breakfast average. Complimentary coffee/expresso in the lounge came handy for evening work.

Cold and old. When I arrived on a business trip ordered by my company, I still had to give them my Visa or credit card. I am very sceptical to stay here another time. I will do my best to avoid this ice cold place. Not the best service.

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

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.
