We booked this hotel at the end of a Bergen-Kirkenes Hurtigruten cruise. It was very easy to get to from the wharf, and they had rooms available for our very early group (9 am) so they let us check in early at no charge. We had a nice chance to unwind before heading out on our Snowhotel husky adventure, which...

Very nice but no atmosphere, it is used mainly for overnight guests for the snow facilities/northern lights/cruises. It has a great view of the fjord being situated right on the the edge of the water. It lacks any warmth because of the high ceilings and large windows in the reception area. The rooms are very well equipped and clean. This...

Wonderful location on the waterfront. This is a large and up-market hotel with an international rather than personal feel. The room was excellent, clean and modern. The restaurant downstairs had stunning views across the waterfront. The range of food was excellent considering that this is a fairly isolated location. Local seafood was a specialty and the evening meal of a...

The highlight is definitely the location of the hotel on the fjord. It's a short drive from the cruise terminal but further away from the airport. A short walk from the city centre and shops. We had a triple room with a view of the fjord. It's not as luxurious as the Oslo Thon Hotels. The rooms were quite basic...

Do not stay at this hotel. The relationship with the customer is non-existent. All they care about is your money. I'm really disappointed. Next time I will stay at another hotel as there are other options

Visited one night and stayed in non waterfront room. Room is well appointed and clean. Great location overlooking the water and a good spot to see the northern lights from the back veranda where it is dark. Fantastic breakfast with Norwegian food and drink as well as the usual. An omelet and waffle station is also there. Minor problem was...

Had a very good stay at Thon Hotel in Kirkenes. It's new and modern, rooms have wide screen TV with web access to watch Netflix & YouTube. Dining area is spacious and elegantly designed. Friends who arrived earlier were lucky enough to catch the Aurora Borealis.

We stayed for a night. The rooms were comfortable. The views were great. Breakfast was ok. A short walk to the centre of town. Overall a convenient hotel. The food at the bar and restaurant was not great and very pricey.
