“I would go again, just for the reindeer steak”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Quite waterfront location (okay its the middle of winter) with beautiful views out over the lake, watching the Hurtigruten cruise ship come in each day. Restaurant food and service very good, rooms well fitted out and well maintained, bordering on brand new. The staff are being well guided by a seasoned veteran in running a decent restaurant and the food was uniformly good.

Already planning to use it as abase for future skimobile and sledging trips in the region.

Room Tip: Face the lake if you can.

No wonder this hotel has won Trip Advisor awards 2 years running. Efficient professional service, well appointed rooms and excellent breakfast. Free tea and coffee 24 hours per day. Our room had a beautiful view...a must for this kind of trip.

Modern, Spacious, Clean and Very Comfortable as I expected! The room was quite stylish and had a spectacular view of the fjord!

Great staff! Helpful and honest! Easy on booking tours. Calling a taxi to the airport was a breeze!

The breakfast buffet was exceptional! Stunning 5-stars restaurant food!
Huge selections of Nespresso pods, regular coffee or decaf and hot drinks.
Fresh juices to choose from at the juice bar.
A chef preparing your eggs or omelette.
Dining room overlooking the fjord as well and large open seating.

Have been told on a good night can see the Northern Lights straight from the hotel room facing the fjord side back of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for Fjord side of the room and higher middle floors if available.

Recently spent a few days at Thon Hotel Kirkenes. Good position overlooking the fjord which can be viewed through large windows in the restaurant. The better rooms overlook the fjord but we were relegated to standard room overlooking an industrial site.The room itself was small but clean and functional with a good bathroom. Breakfast was good with a reasonable range of food considering the isolation of Kirkenes. Coffee and tea available 24 hours gratis and in the afternoon hot soup is freely available self serve at reception. Staff friendly and efficient. No real problems and can recommend this hotel as a reasonable stop over for a few days to explore the region.

Room Tip: Water views

Pick of accomodation in kirkenes. compared to the beds on the Hurtigruten the beds were heaven at the Thon. Even number rooms face the water (north) Odd number rooms face the road (south)Rooms very clean and comfortable, Three floors and fifty rooms per floor. Restaurant food is the pick of the restaurants in town by far. Buffet breakfast is terrific with a large selection of foods available.Very hard to get a good coffee though, but this is europe.Stick with tea, they cant get that wrong.
Staff very friendly and pleasant and willing to help. would higly recommend staying there.
Was lucky to see the northern lights from the room late at night and got a few good pics to prove, But you need clear cloudless nights to see at its best.

Room Tip: choose rooms with even numbers if you want water views.

Just what we expected! It was modern and quite stylish, with restaurant with a view on the fiord. I agree with most of the opinions - nothing extraordinary, but I didn't expect anything. Good ratio price / value, very clean and functional rooms, good mattress (after Hurtigruten that was something!).
Of course awful coffee, but finding proper coffee in Norway is like seeing white reindeer...

Room Tip: That depends on what you need. Superior rooms have view on fiord, but we were during polar nights so...

Located centre of town, on the water. Modern, spacious lobby / dining zone. Breakfast was excellent. Home made jams and friendly Italian waiter to make us real coffee. Good room, view, excellent bathroom (why aren’t all showers as simple /functional as this?! Show this to about 80% of hotels in England, with their crazy complex water systems). Just what we needed en route to explore Finnmark.
