“10 out of 10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

10 out of 10. Director Linda Heltne and her team treat their guests to a service of excellence. We had a group of 26 Austrian Harley-Davidson riders and the Thon Hotel was our base camp for three days on our trips to the North Cape and Hammerfest. Bikers generally, and Harley-Davidson riders in particular, have special requirements, and all our wishes were fulfilled in an absolutely professional and uncomplicated way.
So if you travel to Alta, and I strongly recommend you do, please stay nowhere else than in this outstanding hotel and enjoy the beautiful new rooms, the opulent breakfast buffet and the incomparable kindness of the staff, all in the most magnificent of settings.
We will be back in July 2012….

Thon Hotel Alta is conveniently located, my bed was extremely comfortable (a Thon Hotel trademark) and the lady at the front desk was extremely helpful. The only drawback is that breakfast is served at the adjoining Peppe's Pizza Restaurant. But if you like this style food, it should be fine.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2010

This hotel is brand new with modern, elegant interior. Rooms are medium size, with a small sitting group, desk and tv. The bathrooms are quite big. Everything is new and modern. The breakfast was average for a Norwegian business hotel, i.e. with a good selection of eggs, sossages, bread etc. The breakfast room doubles as a pizza restaurant in the evenings.

Prices are lower in the weekends.

The reception lady was nice and helpful.

Alta is one of many Norwegian small towns where the city planners are really fed up with the beautiful nature. They have made a brand new town center which remined me slightly of an American small town, where all nature has been laid under concrete and asphalt and the buildings are spread more or less coincidentally around. In beautfiful Finnmark county, Alta sentrum is easily the single ugliest place. But it's central, with malls, bus station and VERY expensive cafés.

The Thon hotel lies in the middle of the maze (in Labyrinth street) and is - given the context - nice.

Olav Thon owns many hotels, office buildings and restaurants in Norway and other countries. He is among Norway's riches men, and his hotels are known as somewhat spartan, although clean and decent enough. The new Thon hotel in Alta is a nutch more elegant than his other venues, and could be recommended for a single night.
