I' ve stayed in several Thon hotels in Norway and this is so far the worst of them. The room was big enough but unfortunately not very clean. The bed was really small and the room was too hot during the night. The breakfast was a disappointment with the poorest selection.

We've stayed there just for a night after late arrival of the Hurtigrouten-ship. The room was OK, a bit shabby. The people at reception were friendly but a bit tired so not concentrated at the beginning. Some kind of kerfuffle. Breakfast was OK.

Very nice hotel in a very convenient location. While in norway I didn't stay in more Thon hotels, but I think next time I'll repeat in Moré thon hotels, clean and nice rooms. We couldn't have breakfast because we left very early and they let us eat cold food from the buffet. Very good.

It seems that the quality of hotels in Norway is overall quite poor, but here we also came across a receptionist that was astoundingly incompetent and rude. She was exceptionally rude, for example being extremely annoyed by the question of where is the hotel on the city map or at what time breakfast is served, and completely incapable of answering...

The hotel has the usual problems of Norwegian hotels, no facilities, no shampoo or shower cap, no A/C and windows which cannot open properly, therefore rooms hot and stuffy. In this hotel there was an extra! Very rude receptionist, unable to give any kind of information and annoyed by questions. The location is very central but of course the town... More

This very basic hotel about 1 km from the hub of Alesund. Staff lacked enthusiasm with general enquiries. Room was basic, but nothing extra supplied ie shower toiletries, tissues or extra toilet rolls not supplied. When asked for soap containers to be refilled nothing eventuated. Room was hot and stuffy, No A/c in most of these hotels so ears plugs... More

This is an old hotel and the rooms are very bland and lack character but are of a reasonable size. The was no safe in the rooms and no shampoo or tissues are supplied. Only one small bar of soap supplied. No coffee making facilities in the rooms. Breakfast had a good variety and waffles were available in the afternoon.... More

When we arrived at the hotel on a Saturday night around 00:30 h we found a bunch of people hammering at the hotel door. Seemingly no one was there. It was only through the security services that we could alert the - possibly sleeping - lady who was supposed to be on duty. Not a good experience to start with!... More

We stayed at Thon Opera Hotel in Oslo which was very nice, so when Lars Anderson of "Ticket" a travel agency in Oslo found us an unobtainable room in the same chain we were stoked. By the way, for English speakers this guy at egertorget@ticket.no was very helpful in allowing us to fulfill a sudden urge to visit this amazing... More

I usually stay at Rica Hotel Parken, but decided to try this one instead, which was a downgrade. Nothing can beat the views from the Rica Hotel and from my room in this hotel the view was a run down building on the other side of the street. Also even though the rooms are quite newly renovated it felt cheap.... More
