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....

We stayed in Kirkenes for two nights in October. There were three hotels in the area, I am glad we picked this one. The rooms were modern, clean and had a great view of the sea. We booked a higher-grade room and were pleased with our allocation. There was a great selection of food for breakfast, however there a few...

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...

Friendly people from front desk to the servers in the restaurant. Stayed two nights before boarding the coastal liner Polarlys. Fantastic view from the restaurant. Our rooms facing the street, not much of a view. Beds good, nice size rooms. No place for parking while unloading the car in front of the hotel. Somebody forgot that part. Unpaved parking lot...

Regarding the parking we unfortuntaley do not own it ourselves, it is a council parking lot. As for the price of the King Crab, which is food enough for 2-3 persons, it is as low as we can...

I've stayed here on multiple occasions when coming in and out of Kirkenes for work. It sits right on the fjord and if you can get a room with the fjord view, its very relaxing to just sit and watch the ship traffic. I think every hotel in Norway Ive stayed in, from Oslo to Bergren, to Kristiansund to Kirkenes......

I spent 2 days at this hotel in Kirkenes. The hotel is ideally situated on the harbour but remember to ask for a room with sea wiev. It is a modern hotell, built 7 years ago. It is located at the outskirts of the town at the harbour with lots of parking places. The room was large and very nice....

Stayed one night before boarding the Hurtigruten cruise to Bergen. Room had comfortable beds and pillows; windows opened--quiet all night. Outside deck with wait service available--had a delicious shrimp salad and flatbread pizza--nothing fancy, but good. Blankets and heaters on deck. Breakfast buffet excellent--kept restocked which was a challenge this morning because there were about 100 hungry college students. Lots...

When we checked in, we were given rooms on the road side of the hotel. We were only staying for one night prior to boarding the Hurtigruten, so it didn't seem like a big deal. We opened the window to get some air and then went for a walk. When we came back the room smelled like diesel exhaust fumes....
