I stayed at the Thon Polar Hotel from 15 May till 18 May 2017 and I don't have anything bad to say. The room was clean, modern, a bit on the small side but for 1 person it was perfect. Including minibar and water cooker. It was very quit even though the hotel and my room were along the street...

All in all, the visit was quite ok. At some point though I got the feeling of "Tomorrow" hotel... The room had some ventilation systems nearby, and it had constant rather noisy humming that took some time to get used to, and not be bothered by in order to get sleep. The sheets were a bit dirty, small blood drips...

This hotel is right opposite the Thon Hotel, and slightly cheaper. We had booked a superior room and asked for a high floor (to minimise noise), and we got a great room on the top (7th) floor, which was incredibly quiet. You wold probably call the room 'cosy' or 'bijou' as it was relatively small. One room had extremely comfortable...
