Thon Hotel Tromso
Ranked #8 of 18 Hotels in Tromso
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Hotel reception excellent and very friendly, what ever information whether about trips in the area to local bus schedules their information was very good.
The rooms may have been on the small side, but they were very quiet, enabling us to get a good nights sleep. The beds again were quite small, but for a hotel, very comfortable.
Our only complaint was the hot food on the breakfast buffet, which every day except one was cold, we reported this to reception and they rang through, but to no avail. If you like a cold buffet of cheese and meets, that was quite good. The all day coffee in the reception area was a nice touch. Hotel in centre of town so local restaurants were at hand. Food is expensive in Tromso a good chicken burger and chips and a drink at a mediocre restaurant about £25 no cheeper unless you would like a slice of pizza and a coke at a 7 eleven about £10.
We can recomend trips organised by Lyngsfjord they were excellent and the hearty bowl of thick soup and bread was welcome after each adventure.(www.lyngsfjord.com). We did 3 trips Northern Lights, Dog Sledding and driving a Snow Mobile all three excellent.

I really liked this hotel, good location in centre of town, superbly clean, cozy rooms and comfortable beds and superb bathroom. The breakfast was very nice and very fresh and a good selection. What makes this hotel a 5 for me are the superb, friendly and helpful staff, especially at the reception. Always happy to help and advise and they gave me a superb location in town to see the Northern Lights taht topped my trip off..

An hotel that will not impress you, and will not disappoint you. Rooms are in the average, staff is kind, the breakfast was very good. Of course, in a remote place like Tromso, you can rate it as "good": Tromso is a beautiful city, with beautiful surroundings. The Nature and the northern lights are its best. You don't go there for a hotel with spa and beauty farm.

We arrived late at night and one bed was undone, we found an open beer bottle on the table (unbelievable) we made no complaints. The staff was absolutely friendly, great location in the middle of Tromsø. Not bad if you're planning on staying for a week or so..beware the rooms are definitely not king-size and i've seen better cleaning service, we had to make our beds quite a few times. Apart from that, i would recommend this hotel. 3/5

I stayed here for 6 nights to chase the Northern Lights in March 2011. I loved the hotel....the rooms were spacious, quiet and clean; the bed was really comfy; the people at the front desk were always eager to assist and very helpful. Breakfast is very adequate. The only gripe I had was the lack of hot water kettle in the room but I got used to hauling cups of hot water from the coffee machine downstairs to my room. Wi Fi works great and there are 2 computers you could use in the lobby, with printer. I read the reviews for all of the other hotels in Tromso and decided on the Thom Tromso - it's walking distance to most things you'd want to see in the city. The airport bus drops off in front and picks up around the corner. I'd stay here again in a flash.

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights this February and can highly recommend the Thon Tromsö hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the breakfast buffet was great! The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfy and even if the hotel is located right in the city center there is no noise and you'll get a good night sleep. There is an other Thon hotel (Thon Polar hotel) right across the street. I don't know what the difference between these two is. The Thon Tromsö hotel is quite new and it shows. This is a beautiful, modernly decorated hotel!

Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay with us. Your positive review has been shared with everyone here. The difference between Thon Hotel Tromsø an the hotel across the street is that Thon Hotel Polar is an Budget-consept in Thon Hotels. We hope you will consider coming back to Tromsø and Thon Hotel Tromsø in the future.

The rooms are fairly compact but comfortable and the fittings in both bedroom and shower room are of a high standard. Everything worked and was immaculately clean. The service was unobtrusive and efficient. There is no kettle in the bedroom but a comfortable sitting area near the foyer has a machine offering free drinks. Unfortunately chocolate was not included and there was no milk available for tea. However, the friendly staff always fetched some from the kitchen when I wanted some. The hotel is very central which is convenient and our room, which overlooked overlooked a courtyard, was very quiet. It was very good value for money.
