“Great Hotel”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We stayed at the Thon Hotel Kirkenes in March and we absolutely loved it. This is a very modern and new hotel in a great location overlooking the Barents Sea. Our room had heated flooring throughout including the bathroom floor tiles. The bed and pillow was super comfortable. flat screen TV with loads of different TV channels and the most amazing view of the Barents Sea which was covered in ice and the back-drop of mountains covered in snow. In fact the entire hotel was covered in thick snow and it was freezing cold but we absolutely loved our stay. The restaurant served very nice food and the breakfast was your typical Norwegian buffet with loads of options to choose from. The restaurant and front desk staff were extremely friendly, helpful and shared some really nice stories with us - thoroughy recommend this hotel

Thon Hotel in Kirkenes is a nice modern hotel with good sized well-appointed rooms. Some of the rooms and the dining area have a great view overlooking the water. I also appreciated the free tea and coffee available in the dining area. This is a good hotel to use as a base for the activities available in Kirkenes such as the King Crab safari and Huskie sled rides.

Not much to see and do in Kirkenes so a comfortable hotel is essential. Very modern hotel with a good restaurant and a very good buffet breakfast (omelettes and waffles cooked to order). Room on the small side (common in Norway) but nice view across the bay.

3 minute walk to downtown (joke - downtown consists of 3 streets).

We got a great rate for this hotel some months prior to travelling. Modern, spotlessly clean hotel with a fantastic location right on the water, frozen as I write this! Checkout is 12pm and even though we arrived early around 10am, we were allowed to have access to our room straight away. Great breakfast from 7-11am, friendly staff, all the buses for tourist attractions leave from here. Spacious lobby area with free tea and coffee where you can hang out as long as you like while waiting for a flight, as we were. The small Main Street of kirkenes is a couple of minutes walk. We saw the northern lights right outside the hotel. Ask the receptionist for directions for the little hut 200 metres down the road (you cant go in though) where there is not so much ambient light if you want a lights viewing spot. Great value hotel.

Room Tip: Single bed rooms face the water and those with a double bed don't, but the lobby area has fantas...

Try to get a sea view.
All of the staff were really helpful and had plenty of advice on local tours and things to do.
Simple, clean hotel with stunning views and very close to the Hurtigruten drop off point.
If there are 4 of you needing to get to the airport a taxi is about the same price as the bus.
We hired a car from the local hire company in town for a lot less than the big dealers and had a very nice VW Golf.
We drove out of town for a fabulous northern lights showing.
The restaurant food is tasty (as per the rest of Norway expensive)

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Along with most of the the other guests We stayed for a night at the end of a busy trip looking for the Lights ( visible from the right hand side of the hotel when we were there so saved a 50€ a head bus trip) . It was clean and the rooms
comfortable tho small . bathroom with shower but missed the amenities such as shampoo and showercap. I do really dislike these wall fitted bottles of a generic catch all shampoo and soap...

Hectic busy breakfast of good quality in a room with fantastic views

Let down by very high priced restaurant even by Norwegian standards as have captive audience

We stayed 2 nights in this very nice hotel. We had a room with a view of the fiord it felt like being on a ship great views out over the partly frozen sea. Fantastic room for photos. We kept an eye out for the northern lights which we would have been able to see from the room though there are bright lights below (you don't need to walk far from the hotel to get a better sighting). The breakfast is great and they also supply bags for "goodies to go" a very nice touch given the price of food etc in Norway. We had booked a double bed but none were available and we were given a twin not a problem the twins can be pushed together. A good location in Kirkenes. The shuttle bus from the airport drops and picks you up at the hotel door.

Room Tip: Our room was at the end of the corridor given that there were a lot of kids in the hotel for a ski c...
