Stopped over from Hurtigrutin ship and must say staff here very relaxed and accommodating to transit passengers. Have a drink or breakfast and enjoy the harbour views as the hotel is at the waters edge. Very modern hotel with great location.

On arrival the hotel Christmas Eve turned out that the restaurant was not open and no arrangement was made so guests could eat. This was not made aware of when booking. For Norwegian without Christmas dinner or lunch this is too much. After a while, it seemed no TV either and no Servis was track to get it repaired. After... More

We flew into Kirkenes on the 18th January and stayed at the Thon Hotel for 2 nights. There is a bus direct from the airport into town and it drops off at the hotel, it's a 10 mins journey. The hotel kindly upgraded us to a superior room 416 with a wonderful view across the water. The Thon is a... More

Really the best location in kirkenes. Close to everything and saw Northern lights from our room. They kindly gave us a room with a view when it was available for no extra. The only thing is the tour information on the weekend was terribly disappointing. We got told cross country skiing was available every day and no rush to book... More

As a frequent traveler for business, it was nice to stay at the Thon Hotel in Kirkenes for pleasure only to find many amenities I'm used to. The staff that was friendly and most helpful… from my reservation to helping with directions. The rooms are impeccable. My single room was clean and well-stocked with all of the comforts of home....

We stayed here one night and thought the rooms were a good size and the beds very comfortable. The service was good and like most things in Norway the restaurant was expensive with ordinary food. Once we checked out we were most grateful that we had access to tea and coffee facilities all day.

Nice clean hotel with basic but functional bedrooms. Had dinner at the hotel in the evening. The food itself was very good but the service very poor. Staff seemed rather disinterested in their customers. Great buffet breakfast.

We spent 2 nights here before getting onto the Hurtigruten. The rooms were clean and we had a nice view of the water front from our room. The hotel lounge is very modern and has a nice ambience. There was a nice breakfast spread as well; had an omelette and waffle station. The clever use of glass windows in the... More
