Nice hotel, pleasant staff. Very comfortable if rather small room, good modern bathroom, the room was warm and cosy with excellent thick quilt. The bed very comfortable. The room next door held a loud party on the second night, I complained to the reception and received a satisfactory resolution to the problem, after losing a full nights sleep. Excellent buffet...

We called the reception, and someone came up to help us turn on the heaters which had been disconnected and turned off. After having waited an hour they were still not more... More

Just recently stayed at the Thon Arena Hotel. This was my second visit and the hotel itself is very modern and extremely clean. Hotel was spacious and reception had friendly smiling faces that were very helpful. Well checked into my room and it was smaller than my dorm room in University. The sleeping area was maybe about 2.5 meters wide... More

Obviously the Arena next door is important in the role of this hotel. No events there, so quiet. There for football tournament, and the hotel was very suitable for this, being huge, allowing everyone to have plenty room. Staff always pleasant and helpful. Food superb and large numbers well catered for, with great choice of fresh fruit and vegetables and... More

They didn't offer room service anymore, which we would have used more or less every day after work. What a shame! Breakfast was... More
