This hotel has a fantastic location, pleasant staff, and good views- but the beds are TERRIBLE! Among the worst of any hotel ever. A soft mushy mattress pad over what seems to be an old futon base. We had to leave early so didn't get the buffet breakfast, but they packed up a huge breakfast that was ready for our... More

I stayed here back in mid-September 2014 with my parents: 1. The service at this hotel is amazing!! Thank you to the kind man at reception (a bald roundish fellow) who checked us in with a complimentary upgrade to the big family apartments next door. This staff member even lent his personal phone to us to make sure we had... More

We stayed 2 nights at Thon. Located in central Svolvaer with restaurants and some shops nearby. Room is clean. We were lucky to get a room with good view and could even see Svolvaer Goat with binocular! Every room comes with binocular. But in some area of the room, we could hear echo when we talked. Breakfast is the best... More

This hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Svolvaer next to the Hurtigrute dock. It is therefore ideal when travelling with the Hurtigrute ferry as the distance from boat to the lobby is a very short walk. Breakfast was excellent with all the choice you can ask for and a cook ready to make your special omelette or pancake... More

Effective business hotell with little charm. Our room had a "view" directly towards a concrete wall one meter away. Very disapointing for tourists in wonderfull Svolvær. Friendly staff. Good breakfast.
