“Nice hotel with good prices and perfect location”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We stayed here 1 night after having a rather unpleasant experience at another location in the area. The staff was very welcoming and they offered parking in a garage. The rooms where clean and the size was good. Everything in Arendal was within walking distance.

I was in this hotel for a two-night stay, the room was clean and nice. The breakfast was great. The coffee was good. I liked the little "daily special" thing that was there for breakfast. The reception staff was very friendly and nice

Thon Arendal is located in the centre of Arendal close to everything you need. There is a friendly and helpfull staff and the rooms are clean. The rooms, at least the most dated ones, have seen better days and the restrooms are very small. The soundproofing is also a bit dissapointing, remember to bring your earplugs if you are a light sleeper. But all in all, its value for money.

Central location. Reasonably sized room. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi available. Good buffet breakfast spread. Room rate was NOK 1495 with breakfast included. Clean throughout. Not a grand hotel but a good workmanlike place ideal for a short stay on business. Would use again.

The room (601) was not very large and with an extra bad it seemed quite small, but it was ok for one night. The breakfast was good, the coffee also good and the hotel has, in the lobby, free coffee. I saw a place for kids and when we arrived, they gave us something for our child (a drawing book, some pencils and a small bag; the kid was very excited). The staff was friendly, the location of the hotel is good. The hotel has not a parking so we parked near the hotel, on the street (a chargeable parking).

As most of the Thon hotels, this hotel has a friendly staff and clean and nice rooms. No extravaganza, but perfect for a short stay. The location is very central. The breakfast is generous.

This is very good value for money!

I'll be back next year.
