COMING UP NOVEMBER 2010: Thon Hotel Polar, Tromsø

November 17th to November 19th I will attend a Cancer Research Congress in Tromsø, the largest Norwegian city north of the Polar Circle. This is my second visit to the "Paris of the North." I will stay at Thon Hotel Polar during the weekend, but the weekend will be spent with my nephew Martin, currently attending medical school at the University of Tromsø.

I visited Tromsø one day back in 1984 and I do look forward to revisit this beautiful city.

The Thon Hotel Polar belongs to the Thon Budget hotels offering guests a modest standard at a reasonable price. I have only stayed at one Thon Budget Hotel earlier, the Thon Hotel Bergen Brygge. I found it to be a budget hotel at the lower end of the scale.

Cheap stay at Thon Hotell Bergen Brygge - see full review here

Thon Hotel Polar is located in Grønnegata, in the middle of Tromsø. The city is called Paris of the North as it is widely famous for its restaurants, bars and cultural scene.

Thon Hotel Polar offers 130 rooms, and free wireless internet access throughout the building.

Egon Restaurant offers breakfast from 7 AM weekdays, 6 AM in weekends. Guests may eat lunch and dinner at the hotel.

I made my reservation though hrs.de, my favourite hotel booking service. I will pay NOK 810 including breakfast. It is cheap, and as a comparison I would have paid double price at the neighbouring conference hotel.

I look forward share my memories from the city of Tromsø and present a full review of Thon Hotel Polar to you here on Enjoy Food & Travel.
