“New, Clean, ok location, try the jogging route to Komsa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Alta is not a big place. As long as you want to stay "down town" it is limited how long distance "wrong" it can be. I guess "down town" Alta is within a diameter of 200 meters.

Thon hotel Alta is integrated to Alta's shopping mall. If you are lucky, you get a room with a view to the nice newbuildt church, Nordlyskatedralen, whith its fascinating architecture, inspired by northern light (aurora borealis)

Breakfast is ok, limited with variety but ok.

You get discount at the next door training center, but why indoor? When in Alta do ut in nature. Ask for the way to Komsa. about 1-1,5km running along the road, then you get to nice nature tracks with nice terrain. I guess it is skiingtracks (cross country) there during winter.

PS ALta is close to the Airport. If you like to walk, and your luggage is in a backpack, you can walk between the Hotel and the airport....... my guess......3-4km. Remember the check sunset hours.

Room Tip: Ask for a view for Nordlyskatedralen.

Thank you very much for your kind feedback, we also appreciate your input on local attractions.

You are quite right, Komsa is a cross country skiing track during winter so possible to use all year round.
Alta Airport is located app. 4.5 km from Thon Hotel Alta so as you mention, possible to walk from the airport to the hotel in summer. Otherwise the taxi fares are reasonable and there is an shuttle bus from the airport to the city centre for the main flights.

On behalf of all the staff at Thon Hotel Alta, thank you again and welcome back!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I stayed here for one-week business trip in Alta. The receptionist and other staffs are friendly, and helpful. There are always coffee/ tea available in the coffee bar on the 3rd-floor with many favor choices. The hotel is in the center and is also linked to the city shopping center so it can be easily found by many ways. The buffet breakfast which serves various healthy foods, giving you more choices to start your day with sufficient energy. My room is nice and the natural view from my window is magnificent with sea and mountain. However, the bathroom is not well equipped with bath-products and lotions at all.The TV channels are limited. My room is always tidy and clean after I come back from outside. The decoration is simple and elegant but not much "luxury" in my opinion. I highly recommend to stay inThon Alta.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise in the night.

We stayed for two nights. The front desk and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel staff allowed us to use their washer even though they do not provide this service. The mini kitchenette was very useful; appliances and cutlery provided appeared new. Room was clean. However, when the kitchenette door was swung open, you have very limited space to get in/out of bathroom. Space was tight for the 3 of us.
Breakfast spread could be improved and topped up frequently.
It's a good place to stay for those who want to drive up to the North Cape. About 3 hours each way.

Sorry you found the parking a bit expensive, unfortunately we do not control the prices as this is a council owned parking place. But as you mention we hope you found it was worth it due to the convenience and security of the parking place.
Welcome back,
Kind regards all the staff at Thon Hotel Alta

The lobby of this Thon in Alta is not very fancy or big, but it has a 24-hour coffee machine available free to guests! This was the only hotel we found with such a luxury and we appreciated it very much. The room was nice, not too small, very clean, good shower. The staff were friendly but maybe could have been more helpful about how to get around without a car. There is a Pepe's Pizza right off the lobby - breakfast is served there - and the restaurant is open quite late which is also convenient. Also, the restaurant is attached to a huge shopping mall so that we could go get things we needed without having to go outside - very nice.

We are happy you appreciate the coffee machine and our rooms. I will inform the staff in the reception that they need to be more updated on how to get around without a car so if you were to come back I hope you will find this much improved.

Thon Hotel Alta is situated at the city centre, close to all the facilities such as shopping centre, swimming pool, bars and restaurants. Great help in the reception for activities in Alta. The hotel itself doesn't have a restaurant, and breakfast is at Peppes Pizza. Nice, clean room and nice staff. Had a great stay :)

a rooms are large and well kept..............................................................................................................................................Convenient location next to shoppingcenter. Clean and comfortabel room. Friendly staff. It is a business hotel, not so much for vacation. Breakfast is good and there is a pizzeria next door for dinner. There is not much to do in Alta.
