“Would definitely stay here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went to Tromso for the marathon (+ a couple of days) and have to say this was a lovely base and the staff were so helpful throughout my stay. This hotel is located right in the centre of town but it doesn't feel that way inside. The access to the airport is good and the restaurants nearby feed you well. The whole atmosphere surrounding the hotel and city is incredible and well worth a visit. If / when I'm back in Tromso this would be one place I would definitely consider coming back to

The Thon Hotel is a business hotel. It is not particularly suited to holiday makers as the rooms have a distinct lack of wardrobe space and coat hooks (we had about 18 inches of wardrobe space with 10 hangers and two coat hooks). This can get uncomfortable if you have plenty of cold-weather layers to find a home for. Also, the temperature in the room was not very controllable. Heating appeared to be underfloor and there was no aircon. We reduced the temperature from ‘blast-furnace’ to ‘warm’ by closing the bathroom door (the source of the most enthusiastic underfloor heating) and keeping the window open in all conditions and at all times of day and night. Having said that, the room was otherwise comfortable and was kept spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were wonderful, and we would recommend that guests try at least one of the various herring combinations on offer. Staff were excellent.

The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast had a really good selection. The rooms are small but very clean. The do have a TV with channels in English. Good coffee Nespresso machine in the lobby. WiFi was excellent. I would happily use this company again and this hotel was situated centrally in the town with many close by shops.

The THON hotel TROMSO is a modern no frills comfortable hotel. Located on one of the city's main thoroughfare, it is easy to find and within walking distance of all the sights and points of interest the city has to offer, except for the Arctic Cathedral.
The rooms are a bit small, yet clean and cozy, with large Flat screens TV that will make up for the lack of any interseting view.
One minor quibble is the lack of curtains thick enough to keep the room dark during the summer "nights" which indeed are spectacularly bright, thus hindering the sleeping process. Bring your Eye mask!
Breakfast is, as often in Norway, particularly remarkable.
Parking is an issue. About 50 metres away to the left of the hotel, across the street, there is a hardware and home appliances store in front of which parking seemed permitted and where we parked for free. I find it hard to believe however that in such an airy and spaceful and wide city free parking would be so hard to find.
All told, we might try a different hotel next time, maybe closer to the harbour, but the THON remains a fine choice by all means.

I stayed 3 nights on business.

The pros:
- very friendly and attentive staff
- comfortable rooms (great beds!)
- extensive breakfast options
- central location
- relatively good deal, for Norway

The cons:
- no Internet to the rooms - I had to Skype my husband from the lobby... not a very private way to touch base
- no tea making facilities in the lobby or room - only coffee in lobby for coffee nuts. Not my thing!

All in all I would recommend. It was a great stay, definitely helped along with some lovely staff, for whom nothing was too much to ask.

We stayed here back in February for 3 nights and it was lovely. The rooms are quite spacious, very comfortable and very cosy which is what you need after a day out in the Norwegian winter!
The breakfast was really good, lots of variety. Its very easy to get this hotel and the Thon Hotel Polar confused and they are also opposite each other! Excellent location for exploring Tromso and fantastic Scandinavian service. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here :)

Room Tip: We asked for a room on the top floor facing north, which had a balcony. It was great for us as we we...

It is good thon hotel. No sense instating it is in the center of the city as Tromso is such a small place, everything is walking distance. It has very friendly staff at front desk always willing to help and guide. Rooms are bit small and generally does not afford much view but they are clean and nice. One thing that I found in almost all the hotels in Scandinavia, there are no fans and in June it was warm. I had to keep the window slightly open to allow some cool air. Good spread of breakfast.

Room Tip: some rooms you need to walk quite distance from elevator.
