Alta is not a big place. As long as you want to stay "down town" it is limited how long distance "wrong" it can be. I guess "down town" Alta is within a diameter of 200 meters.
Thon hotel Alta is integrated to Alta's shopping mall. If you are lucky, you get a room with a view to the nice newbuildt church, Nordlyskatedralen, whith its fascinating architecture, inspired by northern light (aurora borealis)
Breakfast is ok, limited with variety but ok.
You get discount at the next door training center, but why indoor? When in Alta do ut in nature. Ask for the way to Komsa. about 1-1,5km running along the road, then you get to nice nature tracks with nice terrain. I guess it is skiingtracks (cross country) there during winter.
PS ALta is close to the Airport. If you like to walk, and your luggage is in a backpack, you can walk between the Hotel and the airport....... my guess......3-4km. Remember the check sunset hours.
