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.

The reception was ok. At our arrival we had the bad luck to get in touch with a not well informed trainee. After this we get a really good service. The people really nice and the room was perfect for us. The breakfast was ok. You also get a omelet and fresh waffles.

Excellent hotel and Breakfast Buffet. All day Nespresso coffee and tea choices. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was the best in town. Consistent, tasty and fresh! Hotel staff very helpful. Rooms were a good size with very comfortable beds, the on- suite bathrooms are modern with a great shower (no tub). The upgrade for the view was worth the extra...

Had three nights here before joining cruise, saw Northern lights on two of those nights, could see from my bedroom window ! Staff all very pleasant especially the dining room staff. Perhaps having movie channel on TV would help, as only reality style programmes on most of the time. Was available if had an account with online company

The Thon is a warm, well appointed hotel.. the perfect place to be stranded in the event of a storm. We did encounter 1 indifferent person at the hotel counter when we checked in. However, I believe she was the exception rather than the rule. The rooms are generously sized and well appointed. They also have a great view of...

Located right on the fjord affording a great view if the northern lights should come out to play. Room was warm, with the bathroom having underfloor heating. For a room with a supposed queen sized bed, I thought the room itself was remarkably small. Great view across the fjord. Very friendly staff. Extensive breakfast. Special thanks to Seija in the...

We stayed here in July while it was light all he day round. Best hotel in town, both from being newer and location, looking out over the sea. Worth paying the extra. It was weird drinking on the terrace at one in the morning with the sun on its way up! Good modern hotel and the restaurant not bad either....

This is a hotel of good Norwegian mid-range standard. Stayed there for one night after arriving with Hurtigruten (staying in Kirkenes to continue southbound on a different ship the next day). Beware that check-in starts in the afternoon, so this is not ideal for guests arriving with Hurtigruten in the morning, but the hotel offers to store the luggage before...
