We stayed here for 3 nights. We had booked into the Rica Arctic but switched which was a good idea due to the location of the Thon right on the water front. We had a beautiful view from our room. The room was a good size with a excellent bathroom. Breakfast was more that adequate with an omelette bar. Would... More

Excellent breakfast. Good free coffee all day long. The terrace is great. As we had a beautiful summer day, lots of people were enjoying the terrace.... More

I think that this is one of the top hotel chains in Norway. Although we arrived over 2 hours late (see posting SAS and Oslo airport), they set out a snack of soup and fresh bread for all the late arrivals. The soup was the best; thick and tasty and the fresh bread. Wow! Breakfast was also a wonderful experience,... More

Having stayed in several hotels on Noway's arctic coast, this is definitely one of the best ones. The rooms are perfectly clean and in top conditions, though a bit small. But you shouldn't spend too much time in your room anyway. Food is very good (especially the salmon, of course). The prices are typical Norwegian, but not exaggerated. The curtains... More

Me and my wife stayed 2 nights in the weekend. We have stayed at the hotel several times. Nice rooms. The hotel has great location at waterfront, but near city centre. Breakfast is also good. Nice staff and service at the hotel.

To be able to see the midnight sun you need a seaview room in this large well-equipped hotel on the seafront. Very polite and extremely helpful reception from Alexander. The restaurant has Norwegian prices for rather small helpings but the coffee machine is excellent and free of charge.

We liked this place a lot. It is an attractively situated, attractively designed property on the quay in the center of Kirkenes. (For some reason, the modernist trappings are more pleasing in person than that they seem they will be in the pictures.) The tourism desk is really helpful. There are bus connections back and forth to Hurtigruten. The staff... More
