“Friendly,convenient and welcoming”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Stayed a week. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. Food good and plenty of it. Rooms clean and neat. Beds comfortable and bathroom and shower very good.
The only minus was we asked for a packed breakfast for the day we were leaving at 5:30 a.m. and despite asking or it 4 days in advance and reminding the staff 3 times they forgot to prepare it !
Overall a very good hotel that can still do better.

Three of us stayed in the Thon Hotel from 16th-20th February 2012. We found the rooms to be modern, warm, spacious and very clean. The beds are the comfiest we have ever slept in, it is the first time we have ever been able to say that we were not looking forward to sleeping in our own beds! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great, tasty meatballs and sausages were an unexpected treat, and the free tea and coffee in the reception was a nice touch! Free internet was a bonus! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights this February. It was very clean and tidy and most of the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was not what I expected, fantastic for ham, cheese and fish lovers but not the most appetising breakfast for me. It was very repetitive and no change most mornings. They ran out of apple juice and the plates were not always clean.
The hotel has no family rooms so one of us had to sleep on a lumpy old camp bed. A plus side to the rooms were the power shower and the modern style furniture. The TV had two English channels world news and discovery. The hotel ran out of non flavoured tea bags halfway through the week and didnt have the intention of getting any. The location was good with the main shopping street on the next block. TIP for anyone wanting to see the lights the centre of tromso isnt a good option. You cant see the lights with lots of light around and therefore tromso has to much light but a good base.

This hotel reminded me of Travel Lodge in the UK but much better! We stayed 5 nights in Feb as the more upmarket hotels were full. If you don't want add on's like a sauna/bar etc, just a nice clean room and a good breakfast you can't go wrong. Beds are very comfortable,nice clean fresh linen,plumped up duvet and a contemporary style. Great free coffee in reception,pleasant helpful staff. I would have liked a kettle in the room for tea in bed and there are only basic soaps etc but thats the only negatives-minor point really.Good location. Norway is so expensive..be prepared! The Egon restaurant opposite is good value.

We spent three nights here in February and can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants reasonably-priced yet high quality accommodation in Tromso. The room was fairly small, but adequate and had a beautifully-fitted en suite. All the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast was great: plenty of healthy choices: fruit, yoghourt, cereal, etc as well as the usual continental selection of meats and cheeses. There was also a cooked option and plenty of fruit juice, tea and coffee: more like a brunch, really.
There is a comfortable lobby area to sit and enjoy (free) tea and coffee. I would suggest one tiny improvement: a kettle in each bedroom!

Good hotel with complete annemeties. The guest enjoys modern, functional and clean rooms. The service was good considering the very late checkin. Conviently located in the city centre the location also permits to discover the city by foot.
Overall a good hotel with a solid service with little buissiness touch to it.

Hotel reception excellent and very friendly, what ever information whether about trips in the area to local bus schedules their information was very good.
The rooms may have been on the small side, but they were very quiet, enabling us to get a good nights sleep. The beds again were quite small, but for a hotel, very comfortable.
Our only complaint was the hot food on the breakfast buffet, which every day except one was cold, we reported this to reception and they rang through, but to no avail. If you like a cold buffet of cheese and meets, that was quite good. The all day coffee in the reception area was a nice touch. Hotel in centre of town so local restaurants were at hand. Food is expensive in Tromso a good chicken burger and chips and a drink at a mediocre restaurant about £25 no cheeper unless you would like a slice of pizza and a coke at a 7 eleven about £10.
We can recomend trips organised by Lyngsfjord they were excellent and the hearty bowl of thick soup and bread was welcome after each adventure.(www.lyngsfjord.com). We did 3 trips Northern Lights, Dog Sledding and driving a Snow Mobile all three excellent.
