We spent one night here after departing from a Hurtigruten cruise. It was neat, clean, and modern. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was outstanding. We chose to stay in this comfortable hotel rather than spend the night in the nearby snow hotel, and we were glad we did. We visited the very impressive snow hotel and had... More

If you're staying in Kirkenes then look no further than the Thon hotel. Clean and light and really the best hotel in Kirkenes from the looks of it. We stayed there for my husband's birthday. Morning breakfast was yummy but the restaurant is very expensive but really that's Norway for you

At the end of a Hurtigruten voyage, north along the Norwegian coast, we stayed for a night in the excellent Thon Hotel, at Kirkenes. Everything about the hotel was faultless, from the spacious room and comfortable beds, through to the excellent buffet breakfast.

A lovely comfortable room, with large picture window overlooking the bay- just perfect for viewing the stunning Northern Lights display we were lucky enough to witness. Breakfast was amazing, including an omelette station. Dinner at the restaurant was top quality too, probably a bit more 'upmarket' than I was expecting. Staff on reception etc were very helpful. Easy to arrange... More

Was staying two nights in the hotel do do different things. Our first choice if we stay in Kirkenes. Breakfast is always very good. Good beds. Very good location at the sea with nice view to the sea. Quiet. The parking place could need some updating.

The Thon Hotel is perfectly situated on the harbour front in Kirkenes, with lovely views. It is definitely worth choosing a sea front room. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is amazing with lots to choose from and a chef who freshly cooks omelettes, waffles etc. The evening meals, like everything in Norway, is... More

Belatedly realised that booking I had made at a B & B was 37 kilometres outside Kirkenes and totally unsuitable. Booked room at the Thon Hotel at short notice. Arrived before 10am and was immediately allocated a bright and pleasant room with excellent service at reception. Trip to visit the Snow Hotel was easily arranged. Dinner was actually delicious, if... More

Hotel is centrally located. Rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. We arrived well before posted check-in time and reception staff person was very accommodating --- went out of way to make our room available within a short period of time. Breakfast buffet was excellent. It was nice to have tea and coffee available throughout the day. To top it... More

This is a relatively new hotel, modern and simplistic as normal in Norway. A very spacious reception and restaurant gives a good feeling. The hotel has free Wi-fi but no fitness center. I enjoyed very much the breakfast, a good selection and offers something for everyone. The hotel faces the sea on one side. Here you can realx on a... More

The hotel has a lovely view of the gorgeous surroundings, very comfortable rooms, and an outstanding breakfast. It is the service, however, that trumps any other experience I have ever had. I had to leave luggage and depart quickly when my husband was airlifted from Kirkenes for medical care. Helena at the Thon took charge (without my prompting!!), secured things... More
