“Good Hotel in a Good Location”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Stayed here whilst working locally. Hotel is in a central location and rooms were clean although a bit small and my room was at the back of the hotel, so the view was not so good. Breakfast and dinner were very good.

Staff were friendly, what more do you need from a hotel.

The hotel in itself is well worth a visit, it's got an unique and beatuyful "old-times" style. I actually spent some time wandering around the hotel admiring its style, which is rare for me in a hotel stay.

The nearby disco and the before-mentioned cars with tuned V8's running up and down the streed forced us to close all windows and finally go buy our own portable aircondition unit to be able to sleep. Please keep in mind that these days were among the hottest this summer, and we had a room in the top floor.

The staff was - as usual on all Thon hotels - very pleasant and helpful.

Unfortunately, the town seems to "shut down" in the summer, with most stores closed because the owners were on vacation. Skien is a good place to go if you're stopping on the way to something else (Bø Sommarland for instance like us), but I wouldn't go there for my vacation.

Room Tip: The two top floors were "boiling" in the summer heat, while the areas further down in the...

Very friendly greeting by the receptionist.
Rooms perfectly up to standard for this price range. Nice and clean. The street outside was VERY noisy due to V8-powered tuned street racers going up and down the street way past midnight. If it weren't for the ear plugs, we bought, we wouldn't have slept at all. I recommend, that you ask for a discount due to the noise. The hotel has free parking and free wi-fi, although this is not stated in the booking.com description. Not your first choice for a hotel to stay at for several days...

I stayed here for one night on business.
Pros: FREE parking - the only place we found that had this on our tour! But not many parking places, so get there early to grab your spot. Magnificent looking pink hotel. Lovely lounge / reception area, with warm colours, chandeliers, wonderful old paintings (the Princess and the Pea was my favourite!). Excellent night's sleep. Very friendly service, great breakfast buffet. Room well equipped, including with tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen TV etc. Internet connection worked well.

Cons: The upright piano in the downstairs lounge area is horribly out of tune! Please please tune it! We were visiting as part of a tour as a ceilidh band, and were asked by some other guests to play a few tunes in the evening, but the piano was an embarrassment after all the beautiful perfectly tuned grand pianos which we'd been provided with at the Kulturhus elsewhere. The room was a little smaller than some other hotels we visited. Be aware that the buffet is cleared away as soon as the allotted time for breakfast is reached, so don't arrive 5 minutes before the deadline!
Overall: I would happily stay here again. Apparently we were in the refurbished rooms, which are much better than those awaiting refurbishment.

I stayed here for a weekend when I visited my sister.
The people who work at Thon Hotel Høyers is really friendly and helpful. The hotel is very beautiful and they serve really good food. I loved my room. It was big enough and had a nice bathroom. I recommend everyone that is visiting Skien to stay at Høyers :-)

The place needs an update as it is very shabby for what you expect at this price range. The free parking that should be included was full and I had to park some distance away. The hotel could not provide a iPhone charger even though "everyone has been asking for it" as the receptionist said.

Stayed here overnight for a trip to Skien for a concert at Ibsenshuset. I'm a Thon reward member so stay at Thon Hotels a lot. They greeted us with a really friendly, quick check in, confirmed (without asking) that points would be credited to my membership. And, when they learned that due to having an early train to catch we would miss breakfast they offered to make us a pack of food to go! Which they came good on as well and it was much appreciated.

This is not the most modern or attractive hotel in Skien I'm fairly sure but they make you really welcome! The lobby is cool in a cosy leather couch kind of way, room was refurbished - pretty modern, corridors and lift showing their age a bit in style. Recommended for short stays in Skien.
