    A small thing but having a hot drinks vending machine available in reception when you come in from a night looking at the Northern Lights is a real treat. Breakfast was also very good and varied.

    Very central and easy to access from the airport. Convenient loaction in the city.

    Not having tea/coffee facilities in rooms and having to go to foyer.

    I didn't stay at the Thon Polar but at Thon Tromso. There was a mistake in our booking and we were upgraded to the hotel over the road. I have answered the questions for Thon Tromso.The best thing was the friendliness and calm efficiency of the staff at both hotels.

    No chocolate in the drinks machine and no milk available for tea without asking everytime.

    the central location of the hotel in the middle of the city

    the fungus on the walls in the shower, and the following smell

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Hotel staff, cleanliness and simplicity of rooms, showers, flat screen television, breakfast in Egon restaurant

    We had to change rooms as the room (258) was above the restaurant and very noisy until 1am and from 5am.

    Nice view from the 8th floor! Room was small but tidy and comfortable.

    I would have liked to buy a glass of wine or a small bottle from a mini bar but there was none to be had. I had to go to the restaurant next door.

    typical hotel for business trip, the rest. near to hotel is quite good.

    staff service need to improve

    Good location in city centre. Good buffet breakfast served in adjacent chain restaurant (Egon). Rooms are smallish but very clean and quiet (except for the seagulls screaming 24h a day, probably unavoidable anywhere in the city). Friendly staff, free internet in the lobby.

    During our stay the hotel was full, and many breakfast buffet items occasionally run out. Not a lot of locker/drawer space in the room.

    Excellent breakfast and very good service. Right in the city centre

    The sink in the bathroom looked very cool, but not very practical.

  • Older travelers

    Helpful and friendly staff.Comfortable and pleasant room in a very central location for Tromso and the airport. Egons restaurent had a good menu and ambience. I would certainly recommend Thon to others:)

    The hair dryer in the roomj did not work and the coffee in the foyer was terrible.

  • Group of friends

    I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The breakfast is superb with lots of choice, the staff are friendly and helpful and the location is right in the centre of Tromso.

  • Single

    Staff were always smiling and the accommodation was excellent. Had to walk the last flight of stairs to the 9th floor (lift only to the 8th) but the reward was a wonderful view across the top of Tromso to the fjord and mountains beyond. Room was clean, fresh and the attached restaurant has so much character as well as good food, I had trouble going anywhere else during my 4 night stay. Went solely for the Northern lights and saw them on 2 of my 4 nights there, so this definitely influenced my enjoyment!

    Can't think of a thing!
