Thon Hotel Lofoten
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Svolvaer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 January 2018

The hotel is located just right at the city center, next door to the tourist information center, a minute walk to the convenience store and on top of that it is such a great view on the surrounding area. The hotel staff is so kind and helpful. The restaurant is really huge, it is a variety of choice for the breakfast. The room itself is quite a good size. Svolvaer is a gate way to Lofoten, so from the hotel, you can travel to the rest of the island quite easy. I like the place and definitely will go back again.

Room Tip: every room is as good as it get

The breakfast was marvelous – the best breakfast ever!. The hotel was nice, clean and very calm in the middle of the small city of Svolvear. We loved our stay in Lofoten and we are looking forward to come back.

Where do I start? Everyone knows it’s expensive in Norway. But we found a great place to stay in Svolvaer that really gave you value for money. Spacious rooms, quality bedding - read super comfy! We have a king bed at home, so a double here is the same size - and has the added bonus of individual duvets! Opening windows and water views were great, and our 6 days here just flew by.

Breakfasts were fantastic - if you went hungry it’s your own fault. And a coffee machine in the foyer means you can recharge and sit in the funky lounge area at any time of day or night.

Free access to the local Stamina gym meant we could remind ourselves that we had muscles!

The location is 5 stars too, right on the waterfront and literally steps to the Hurtigruten.

The real star here is Ho Ronja - the best hotel front of house we’ve come across. She went out of her way to help us plan our stay, always greeted us with a smile and a hello, and really took the time to make us feel welcome. I call that value for money. Make this your home base for the Lofoten Islands - We’ll be back in the spring or autumn one year for sure, and we’ll stay here. Definitely.

When my friend and I checked into our room, we found that the heater was not working. We called the reception and the staff on duty, Ms Kristina, responded immediately by coming up to the room to find out what the problem was. When she saw that it was not a problem which could be fixed immediately, she apologised sincerely and offered to move us to another room. The entire process was quick and painless. I would like to commend her.
The hotel is also a pleasure to stay in because of the beautifully colour coordinated decor and of course, the breakfast! I was exhausted because I was on a tour but I woke up early both mornings to enjoy the warm croissants and the equally warm welcome by the staff on breakfast duty. They were helpful with the coffee machine and top-ups. I highly recommend this hotel.

Nice and clean hotel and rooms, with service minded staff, good restaurant with an amazing breakfast. Good view of the town and docks.
Amazing staff that actually drove us to the airport when the taxis decided not to show up as scheduled.
