This hotel is located at the Svolvaer harbour. Location is very convinient, very close to restaurants, cafes, bars and sightseeings. The hotel has no parking, but there are plenty of public parking sites with no charge. We had a senior suite with excellent view over the harbour. The room was comfortable nad nicely decorated. There was a Nesspresso coffee machine... More

on business in Lofoten I spent two nights at Svolvær and stayed at the modern and nice Thon Lofoten Hotel. Nice service, a bit crowded (the tourist season) with a LOT of Germans hitting on the breakfast buffet in the early hours of the morning. It is not a cheap hotel, but rooms are fine (a seaview room on the... More

I stayed at this hotel a few days ago. I explored Lofoten in a fantastic weather - sunny days, > 20 degrees during the day and nearly no wind at all. I got a nice room with a view to Svolværgeita and the harbor and woke up to sunrise every morning. Breakfast was good! The problem at this hotel is... More

Hi and thank you for your feedback. There is no need to try another hotel, we will provide you with room-service until the kitchen closes. Food is very important to us as well. Especially local food, which we proudly present in every dish we make. We will evaluate our routines regarding room-service and I hope that next time we will... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and the hotel staff were great and the hotel was in a fantastic location but just lacked character. The food was good and the rooms were comfy but just nothing jumped out for me to rush back and return, a great venue for conferences and work trips but not a romantic weekend away

I have satyed here a few times on tour and the rooms in the 'High building' are fine. Avoid what they call the 'low building' are a real mixed bag with winding corridores, steps and a good distance from reception. NEVER get a single room, awful little box. TV didn't work, only one small flat pillow and not enough room... More

Went here for two nights in July. Lofoten is so beautiful, I really loved it here. The hotel is located in the middle of Svolvær city. I was so lucky to get a room on the top floor with a beautiful view to the main square and the famous "Svolværgeita". The breakfast is wonderful, with everything you need plus a... More

Our breakfast should be among the best in Norway and nothing is better than to hear that from our guests. We will continue to focus on local products and... More

We stayed in this hotel with a group of people for two days. First of all the rooms were on the small side but nicely furnished. The hotel is situated in the heart of the town - the hurtigruten are leaving right around the corner. Our package included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast buffet is nicely arranged, there is a wide... More

Three nights in early July. The location is excellent, the facilities are great and the outlook generally is modern. We booked a room almost a year before and since we decided to choose a business room, we got a room in a separate house with a garage view. The room itself was nice. The service was ok, but not particularly... More

Stayed here for four nights last August. A lovely hotel set in a beautiful town. Very clean and nice rooms with amazing views. Breakfast was fantastic - full range of hot and cold food with mochas and healthy drinks. The only issue was the room was very hot and no air conditioning. This didn't spoil our stay too much though... More

Stayed there for a big meeting and is impressive that the service was kept at the same level throughout. The room is small and ok. Complained about a broken device in the toilet and was ignored. The food and the restaurant were excellent. Service is ok. Good place to stay. Arrived one night very late (22:00) from a field visit... More
