Older hotel in the midle of the town. Needs a makeover to look fresh and modern. Nice pool and sauna. Good breakfast. Choose only standard room. You get almost nothing extra for paying more for Superior room.

... so we could only choose from reindeer steak or fillet of beef steak what we ordered. It turned out to be sirloin instead: one medium and one well done although we both ordered medium rare. The roasted fillet of chicken for our son was finally a fried piece of chicken breast. Chocolat mousse with Meringue was quite fine and... More

We were here during winter time, not to many options obviously for dinner. Normally priced for Norway... and with good range of plates. Recommended if you are not fan of pizzas and burgers - that's the main alternative you have in Kirkenes, at least during winter.

The restaurant was great with excellent fare for breakfast. I didn't dine there other than the breakfast provided though. Nonetheless the food was excellent with a wide range of meat, fish, cereals and others. The pancakes and waffles were particularly tasty. Highly recommended if you happen to stay at Kirkenes

Cannot count the Problems we had with this hotel. Very untypical for Norway. Room was extremely dirty, smelled like someone was smoking. Although the Hotel was nearly empty, the reception did not offer a better room and only replied that they have only non Smoking rooms and we are wrong. Besides a lot of other small issues, we were surprised... More
