We had a family room for two people, OK size for two, cramped if four. Adequate bathroom, good kitchenette although no room to move around when cooking. Bed was brilliant, very comfortable. The hotel is situated in what they call city centre, imagine more an extended shopping centre/area. We rented a SUV, without a car you are totally lost. Very nice service, breakfast fine with bare necessities. The cheese platter was filled with cheese that had been in and out of the fridge to many times. We had a weekend stay and love the area, nature and not to forget the northern light. Go there!

Dear BorgeOslo! Thank you so much for your review on Thon Hotel Alta. We are happy to learn from our guests what they like about our hotel and of course what they do not like so much. Your comment on the cheese has been forwarded to the kitchen and hopefully you won't be experiencing this again. I take this opportunity to wish you a merry christmas since my response was a little late.

Yours Sincerely,
Linda Heltne, General Manager

A good choice for Alta. Check-in and -out is quick and easy. Rooms are large and well kept. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job keeping my room clean and on the day I stayed in, they hung a bag with clean essensials on my door. Very thoughtful! Breakfast is the only thing lacking a little bit. Although they stray from the standard hotel breakfast with a couple of nice things, I was missing a few of my favorites like salad leafes, croissants and a selection of newspapers to read. But breakfast covered my needs and the stay was all in all very satisfactory.

We stayed night in Thon Hotel Alta, as part of our Lapland Tour.
Thon Hotel Alta is part of big shopping mall, where are a lot of clothing stores and a supermarket. Alta is nice town and it would be great to visit and explore it more.
Our room was simple, but nice. Nothing special, wi-fi worked and it was clean.
Restaurant was really good and breakfast was amazing.

A nice hotel in a good location, shopping senter and plenty of good restaurants around ~ no need to use the pizza place if you want Something else. Friendly and competent staff and very well equipped room. Good breakfast.

Stayed here 1 night, awaiting my flight. Rooms are clean, bathroom is nice, Internet is free. Beds are a bit too small. There is no bar in the hotel. You have to go to the pizzeria next doors. Very friendly staff
