I stayed 2 days at this hotel while on a solo midnight sun photography trip. The hotel is very conveniently located in the centre of Kirkenes, with gorgeous views on the surrounding mountains and sea. Parking is free just in front of the hotel. The staff were all very friendly, service was excellent, and breakfast plentiful and really good. The... More

Realy good breakfast. Kirkenes is not the prettyest city in Norway, but the hotel is placed by the sea, and that have a great view. What was strange for me as a norwegian was that i had to speak english since many oft the workers didnt speak norwegian.

This hotel is very accommodating. Modern decor, nice amenities. Good restaurant and great breakfast buffet. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great location on the harbor and two blocks to city center. Rooms do not have air conditioning but the windows open.

Good location in Kirkenes. Just take about 15 mins from airport to hotel, by bus. Very helpful front desk staff. Delicious meal. Stunning view of midnight sun! Very close to pier of Hurtigruten cruise, and shuttle bus is available.

Nothing special to say here, it's Thon, not more and not less. Clean, modern, good quality, nice staff (especially the lady in the restaurant). The WiFi worked without interruptions, which is greatly appreciated after traveling through Norway for week. Most hotels don't manage to provide a decent internet connection. On 1 August we ate at the hotel's restaurant and it... More

Great pkace to meet our ship. The views over the water were brilliant. Easy to walk to the Border Museum, and to stroll around the town meals were very good and reasonably priced. Plenty of seating to sit outside and watch the activity on the harbour

We ended our Hurtigruten cruise in Kirkenes and stayed one night at the Thon Hotel. It is the best in town. We had booked a suite which was really nice and large with great views of the sea. Unfortunately Kirkenes had a heat wave the day were there and the room was really hot (over 90 degrees). The hotel does... More

Stayed overnight - beds very comfortable, breakfast excellent selection. Would have preferred to be on the water side to take in the wonderful views but were told they were all taken. Would recommend calling ahead or requesting online to get a room with a view if possible. With the midnight sun, the views are spectacular.

Hello Mr kc5555. Breakfast is one of things we try to stand out from the rest, glad you found it excellent. A good night sleep is always, when exploring the arctic. For rooms with seaview you can book a superiorroom, they also have magasines and bathrobe. Or you can just enjoy the local delicacies in our restaurant and watch the... More

I spent 2 nights in 26C 24hr sunshine in this hotel and it was delightful being able to enjoy the free nespresso coffees on the terrace looking out upon the fjord.
