The hotel in itself is well worth a visit, it's got an unique and beatuyful "old-times" style. I actually spent some time wandering around the hotel admiring its style, which is rare for me in a hotel stay.
The nearby disco and the before-mentioned cars with tuned V8's running up and down the streed forced us to close all windows and finally go buy our own portable aircondition unit to be able to sleep. Please keep in mind that these days were among the hottest this summer, and we had a room in the top floor.
The staff was - as usual on all Thon hotels - very pleasant and helpful.
Unfortunately, the town seems to "shut down" in the summer, with most stores closed because the owners were on vacation. Skien is a good place to go if you're stopping on the way to something else (Bø Sommarland for instance like us), but I wouldn't go there for my vacation.
