The hotel is clean, and the rooms are comfortable and the bed was nice. There is no standalone bar which I found a bit annoying, and the restaurant closes at 22 which I also found a bit annoying. Easy to find parking around, and the location is good.

One reception clerk was friendly; the others were utterly disengaged and not interested in assisting us. Carpets were excessively worn and had no padding -- it felt as if we were walking on concrete. The cleaner used to disinfect the rooms (at least we think that was it) left an absolutely horrid smell which we couldn't eliminate (for the one small window barely opened a crack and there was no ventilation in the bathroom). I would have no problem with all this were the price not so expensive -- the quality is more akin to a youth hostel than "a luxury hotel" it purports to be. On the other hand, the breakfast buffet was the most generous and creative we had in a month of traveling in Norway. Go figure!

We arrived on the evening Oslo flight at around 8pm, got to the hotel at 0845, and had dinner at 9pm. We had phoned ahead and they are well set up for this type of arrangement as the restaurant is open till 10pm.

The restaurant staff were very friendly explaining the various choices and recommendations for dinner and again the next morning for breakfast. Dinner menu was relatively simple, wholesome, well prepared. Breakfast was excellent with many choices, significantly beyond what we had seen in similar hotels in the past. Well done!

Rooms are neither small nor large, with everything you need for a good night sleep (although the curtains could be a little better to keep out the 24 hr daylight...). Overall good value for money.

Room Tip: From airport take a taxi (cost for 4 same as bus) and be in hotel starting dinner by the time the bus arrives with the rest of the guests...

We stayed here for 1 night after our Hurtigruten cruise from Bergen. It was good. A quiet hotel with average size rooms and all the facilities you need for a short stay. There is even a swimming pool. Breakfast was really good. Hotel is very central, in town and close to the sea too. Kirkenes is very small! and not much to see there so I suggest you book an excursion. We did the Pasvik valley and Huskie farm trip which was excellent.
