2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I use this hotell one night every 6 week due to my job. I have now used it for about 1,5 years and everytime the hotel rooms are to hot (above 30deg). I am unable to get a good nights rest even with the window opened.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We stay here one night every 6 weeks (sometimes more if weather delays going offshore). The rooms are always very clean and the design is modern. Staff are freindly and very efficient.
Prices of the mini bar even for Norway are very high, so go to the supermarket next door for your cola and crisps/chocolates. Beer also.There is a couple of bars within short distance and restaurants.The hotel restaurant does fixed price meals /buffet depending on which day you arrive, also good food.
The location overlooks the harbour (the quieter side of hotel). They recently expanded the hotel and these are all very nice rooms but face the road so can be noisy for some.
Its a good central location for 1 or 2 nights.

Room Tip: Upper floors with rooms facing to the Harbour side are quietest.But also sides are ok, but of course...

An overnight stay before moving on to work, the room was clean and comfortable. As there isn't a great deal of choice within Hammerfest for hotels, this is the only one I gave stayed in. It would be easy not to make an effort due to a "captive" market but I have to say that's not the case.
The standard of Thon hotels is good and Hammerfest is no exception.

This hotel is situated in the very centre of Hammerfest, and the room was nice. I had a room on the 7th floor, meaning I had a lovely view over the town. The staff was friendly too.

The breakfast wasn't very nice though. There weren't many vegetarian options, the eggs were cold, and the milk was lukewarm.

A hotel in the middle of the city centre of Hammerfest. The hotel has wheelchair access, and good marking for partially sighted persons in the stairs. The breakfast is ordinary. We had breakfast half an hour before closing, and the only soft boiled egg was cold. Fresh baked bread made up for cheese and salmon which looked like it have been out in the breakfast restaurant for some time. A bit undelicious.
The rooms was ok, enought light and newly redecorated. We misted a place to put the toilet bag in the bath room.
All in all, a good choice in Hammerfest, which have only three hotels at the moment.

Hotel is nice enough with a the main reception and corridors being modern in design, however the room I stayed in seemed to be decorated like the inside of a ships cabin, with lots of wood. The bed even had wooden sides. Quite a small room, but okay for the night.

Hammerfest is a small town, with a very limited number of hotels. A good portion of the guests at this hotel will be workers going to and from offshore oil rigs in the Barents Sea.

The hotel has a nice location, is spotlessly clean and looks newly renovated because the rooms are very modern. The breakfast is very good and so is the free WiFi.
