Flott beliggenhet

Posted Jun 14, 2013
Pros: beliggenheten
Cons: Knirk i baderomsdør
Flott beliggenhet, god mat. Hele oppholdet var topp bortsett fra en ting: Døra til badet på rommet knirket voldsomt. Dette ble kommentert til den som var på jobb i resepsjonen første morgen i oppholdet vårt, og han lovet å få noen til å se på det. Men den knirket like mye resten av oppholdet vårt.

70 degrees north

Posted Apr 8, 2013
Kirkenes is just south of Norway's North Cape near the Russian border. I was there at the begining of spring April1-2 2013. It was georgeous, I was told I was lucky-no endless darkness of winter or mosquitos and black flys of summer. The Auroa Borealis was worth the trip. The hotel will also arrange dog sledding (winter# and king crab fishing #all seasons# I really liked the friendly staff, the delicious reindeer filet in the dining room, the walk in shower in the bathroom.The view of the harbor was lovely. I only wish that the hotel #and the rest of northern Norway) would keep the ice off the stairs.

Nordlichter in Kirkenes

Posted Jan 28, 2013
Ein wundervoll mit Blick auf den Fjord und trotzdem sehr zentral im Ort gelegenes Hotel mit schönen großen Zimmern, alles sehr sauber und ansprechend. Hier wären wir gerne länger geblieben und hätten weiter aus dem Zimmer den Nordlichthimmel bestaunt. Leider hatten wir nur Zeit für eine Nacht.

Large Rooms with a Sea view

Posted Jan 16, 2013
Pros: Big, modern rooms
Cons: Pricey restaurant
Location: By the sea not far from the centre of town
The rooms are the largest I've experienced in Scandinavia. The hotel is new and hence all the finishes are modern and not worn. It's location by the sea is 2 blocks from the centre of town, but has an unhindered view of the Barents sea.

Shock, horror at mini bar bill

Posted Dec 22, 2012 
The hotel was smart, clean and comfortable for an overnight stay. However, I was very shocked by the mini bar bill for a 50cl bottle of water and a bar of chocolate. It is usual for hotels to include a price list when drinks are not complementary, but there was no price list in the mini bar. This negated any advantages of staying at the Thorn Hotel.

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff & a goosd breakfast. Whilst the location is on the water front with a great view of the fjord, the area is typical of small industrial port towns -induistrial buidlings etc, rubbing shoulders with hotels. Kirkenes is a border/frontier kind of town, not too much to attract the casual tourist, but if your going for outdoor adventures- husky sledding, winter camping etc then their are a few good operators to look after you. We were their in late November so experience only a few hours of twilight before the sun properly set, so it all seemed a little bleak with the only attractions a few cafes and bars.

OTTIMO HOTEL

Posted Nov 24, 2012
Pros: il bagno con un vano doccia enorme vista la mia mole 2metri x 120 kg
ottima posizione,personale gentile,parlano anche l'italiano,vicino al centro e ben servito dall'aeroporto ,e dal porto dove arriva il postale dei fiordi.Colazione ottima sia per qualità che per varietà, per inciso il caffè è fatto con le cialde di una nota marca, e questo per noi Italiani all'estero è un grosso punto a favore, visto che fuori dall'Italia ho bevuto varie brodaglie. Consigliatissimo,anche grazie al prezzo spuntato da Expedia,visto lo standard Norvegese.

Despite arriving at midday, the room I had booked was not available and I had to compromise the facilities I required. Specifically I lost the jetted bathtub which I had been looking forward to during my two night stay. Thon Hotels did not offer me any sort of discount to compensate me for their error (or was it just another example of operational processes which are not sympathetic to customers). Thon need to ask themselves why a room I had pre-booked and prepaid wasn't available to me - I could understand this situation at 10 o'clock at night but at midday! I don't think they care.
