COMING UP: Clarion Hotel Tyholmen, Arendal

It is 30 years since I graduated from college. June 12th I will meet my fellow students to celebrate this anniversary. The banquet will take place at Clarion Hotel Tyholmen in Arendal, my home town. Conveniently I have booked a room there from June 12th to June 13th.

Clarion Hotel Tyholmen is a relatively new hotel, built in traditional style and located in the middle of Tyholmen, the old part of Arendal. If you are lucky you'll get a room facing the fjord separating the city centre from the islands of Hisøy and Tromøy. A better location is hard to find. Close to the bars and restaurants, and with a proximity to the waters.


The hotel 96 rooms are located in the original hotel building and has a traditional decor, and in the new wing is decorated in modern Scandinavian design. Most rooms have sea view.

All room have free wireless internet access, flat screen TV's, water kettle and mini-bar. There
are two allergy rooms (without carpets), and two handicap rooms.

  • 96 rooms

  • New conference room/banquet hall from June 2007 seating up to 300 people
  • Two new board rooms from September 2008 for up to 26 people
