We were due to stay at Centerhotel Thingholt but a few days before we left were told we had been moved to this hotel, and I can say we were not disappointed.
The hotel is in a great location, just along from the harbour and across the road from the Harpa concert hall. Approx 5 minute walk to the main street where the shops and restaurants are.
We were given a deluxe room, nice big double bed with comfy pillows and snug duvets. The room was minimalistic but that was good meant we had to keep it tidy!
Tea/coffee making facilities in the room and a very big TV which had many english channels.
I agree the shower set up is different! But by having the moving door like this it gave more room in the bathroom. The shower was hot you just need to know that there is a button on the temperature side that if you press and turn the control the water gets very hot.
The rooms were cleaned each day and we could ask for extra tea and coffee sachets.
Breakfast was on floor 8, Sky bar, which has stunning views across the water. There was plenty to choose from and was always being refilled.
This was also the only place to get food in the hotel so was limited to light snacks the rest of the time, but we chose to eat out at the many restaurants locally.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, giving lots of advice as to good restaurants, how the weather was going to be that day and booking excursions for us.
We had use of the spa, free robes and slippers, this was lovely at the end of each busy day.
We didn't get to see the Northern Lights as it was too cloudy, but that is a perfect reason to come back, which we are already planning and will be staying at this hotel again.
