Nice room , with a balcony! Double bed and good food in the restaurant. Situated by the harbour, everything you need is within walking distance, very easy to walk into city center and do you shopping there.

Great hotel at the harbour front in Harstad. Also in the center of the city means short walking distance to "everything" Excellent room on the seaside gave me a wonderful view over the harbour. Breakfast is really luxurious with everything you want/need.

Hi GeirVi! We really love your nice review! We have a wonderful view over the harbour, but that is something "given" to us, but still, view is wonderful. Regarding breakfast, that is another cup of tea, here we have to have a continious focus to keep up quality and experience, but we really like what we do, and what we... More

This hotel got a perfect location in the senter of the city Harstad. You got everything you need within walking distance. Staff that i had to deal with was kind and helpful, also seemed to be professionals. Food served at the buffet was excellent.

The Thon hotel is clean, fairly characterful and hospitable, offering good food at a reasonable price. It's directly on the sea front, close to the town centre and very close to the Hurtigruten port. Our room however was fairly compact but this wasn't a problem.

Rooms were ok and clean; family room really good and the double rooms were fine as well, but not as impressive. What was really impressive, is the breakfast. A wide range of fresh options: it has been a (very) long time since we last had such a good breakfast in a hotel. Therefore overall warmly recommended. The only thing not... More

This hotel is only recommended for people that like air conditioning add you can neither regulate it not turn it off. Reception confirmed it to me that it's only possible for the whole floor. Otherwise a nice hotel, but the AC had rounded my night.

We travelled on an Inghams short break 'Arctic Fjord Adventure' - 3 nights at the end of February. It was simply amazing from start to finish, but we were very lucky with the weather.

Stayed here one night in order to join the Hurtigruten the next morning so we weren't here long. We had been upgraded to a suite with an amazing view over the harbour. Good bed and nice bathroom. (Think the upgrade was because a coach party arrived and took over the place!)

There is no nightlife in Norwegian towns. Not in Oslo, not in Bergen, not in Tromsoe. But BIG SURPRISE. In that small town on remote Vesteralen islands, people are, unusual for Norwegians, curious, laughing, talkative, and that causes an unexpected lively nightlife. And the Thon hotel is situated right in the middle of it. The rooms are quite spacious, unlike... More
