Fabulous 8.8 From 206 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Just a 1 night stay before boarding a Hurtigruten cruise. Ideal location, close to town centre and a very nice hotel, as described on site. Room size was not large, but perfectly adequate for our purposes.

Great location
This hotel has the best location in Kirkenes with amazing views across the harbour. It is in close proximity to shops, bank and points of interest. The rooms were spacious and modern with a huge TV. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was very welcome. The food in the restaurant was locally sourced and delicious. The buffet breakfast was extensive. It included hot and cold dishes and freshly squeezed orange juice. A great place to stay.

Beautiful hotel with amazing sea view, unfortunately my standard room did not come with the view of the lake, else it would've been lovely. Should mention it as an option whilst booking. Hotel room is clean and spacious, 5 minute walk to the mall and many cafes nearby. Also a good starting pickup point for any tours that you might've booked.

They have the BEST BUFFET!!! This alone is worth the stay. Ask for a water view room if possible, gorgeous. There was a heat wave so the room was unbearably hot.

Amazing view of frozen lake
I stayed at Thon Kirekenes for 2 nights before joining a Hurtigruten cruise. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and as it was National Waffle day free waffles were on offer for guests. The hotel and room were very clean and quiet. My room was at the back of the hotel and had a fantastic view over the lake at the back. The buffet breakfast was very good with lots to choose from. I would definitely stay here again if I were to visit Kirkenes in the future.

A Very Nice Hotel in Kirkenes
Room very clean and up to date. Heated bathroom floor. Great free Breakfast with a wide variety of hot and cold dishes. Staff was very helpful! Rooms facing the harbor do have very nice views, and potential to see Aurora. I was able to check in early after a cruise which was a big help. Restaurant on site but they are not open for lunch. Other options are within easy walking distance. I would gladly stay again!
