In order to park my car near the hotel, I was told by a male hotel receptionist (the other female had no clue about parking at all as she does not drive) to walk 300 meters of hard icy street under 2 degree to a meter parking lot. As the instructions were not visible in the darkness (yes, at 4... More

After a very long journey, I arrived in my room to find a tiny space no bigger than a rabbit hutch. No wardrobe, no shelves, so everything remained on the floor in my suitcase, as there was nowhere to store that either. Bed was the narrowest "double" bed I have ever seen. No tea making facilities. Even the cheap Premier... More

We stayed at the Thon Lofoten for just one night as we were driving through the islands. We were upgraded to one of the corner rooms with huge wrap-around windows and it was nothing short of spectacular. A stunning view over the harbourfront. The room itself, while not large, had everything you needed. Breakfast in the morning was very busy... More

This hotel is located at the Svolvaer harbour. Location is very convinient, very close to restaurants, cafes, bars and sightseeings. The hotel has no parking, but there are plenty of public parking sites with no charge. We had a senior suite with excellent view over the harbour. The room was comfortable nad nicely decorated. There was a Nesspresso coffee machine... More

on business in Lofoten I spent two nights at Svolvær and stayed at the modern and nice Thon Lofoten Hotel. Nice service, a bit crowded (the tourist season) with a LOT of Germans hitting on the breakfast buffet in the early hours of the morning. It is not a cheap hotel, but rooms are fine (a seaview room on the... More

I stayed at this hotel a few days ago. I explored Lofoten in a fantastic weather - sunny days, > 20 degrees during the day and nearly no wind at all. I got a nice room with a view to Svolværgeita and the harbor and woke up to sunrise every morning. Breakfast was good! The problem at this hotel is... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and the hotel staff were great and the hotel was in a fantastic location but just lacked character. The food was good and the rooms were comfy but just nothing jumped out for me to rush back and return, a great venue for conferences and work trips but not a romantic weekend away

I have satyed here a few times on tour and the rooms in the 'High building' are fine. Avoid what they call the 'low building' are a real mixed bag with winding corridores, steps and a good distance from reception. NEVER get a single room, awful little box. TV didn't work, only one small flat pillow and not enough room... More

Went here for two nights in July. Lofoten is so beautiful, I really loved it here. The hotel is located in the middle of Svolvær city. I was so lucky to get a room on the top floor with a beautiful view to the main square and the famous "Svolværgeita". The breakfast is wonderful, with everything you need plus a... More

We stayed in this hotel with a group of people for two days. First of all the rooms were on the small side but nicely furnished. The hotel is situated in the heart of the town - the hurtigruten are leaving right around the corner. Our package included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast buffet is nicely arranged, there is a wide... More
