I recently stayed at First Hotel Elverum. This is an old hotel that has changed owners a number of times. The restaurant (The Grill) bears more than a slight resemblance to the Egon Chain, which is often seen in conjunction With Thon hotels. Reception staff pleasant and helpful. Room not modern but very clean and cumfy. Good bed, slept well....

This hotel have a good and central location, the only in this town located in the centrum. But everything are avarege close to below average. Friendly staff and with the-very local attitude, that's charming in a way. The maintaining budget do not exist in this hotel, everything are well used( if you like unmaintained 80'retro this I the dream). Rooms...

A stay at First Elverum is ok and absolutely worth the money. The greeting is friendly the room is ok. This hotel has all the necessity you will need - but nothing more. It was clean and tidy. The bathroom was ok but a little out of date - though not bad. For a stay in this region absolutely recommendable.

This hotel has old and snappy facilities, but the rooms were kept nice and clean. The rooms are not fantastic, merely a place to sleep if you have things to do the rest of the day, The breakfast was surprisingly good. They offered a variety of fresh and healthy options in a simple, Norwegian style. And they could cater very...

Thon Elverum is a Little bit cheaper than the Scandic hotel in Elverum. Old style, and nothing fancy. Nice and friendly staff and above average breakfast buffet for this type of hotel. Downside: No hot Water in the shower at 07.00 in the morning!!

I spent one night at the Thon Hotel Elverum on a business trip. I was assigned a room on the first floor. The room was pretty much like a prison cell - the sink was next to the bed, there was no closet, in fact no way to hang up a coat or a shirt anywhere apart from a worn...

No one warned me about the upcoming hard-rock concert as I booked my room for Saturday night, but on arrival I guess the tattoo convention that was held in the hotel that night gave me a clue of what would come… It was impossible to get a good night sleep with that bass pounding, and a vocalist that was squealing...

I guess this is the only hotel in small town called Elverum and in case you have to stay overnight it will be the THON Hotel Elverum. It's quite warn out and badly needs some renovation to bring it to the 21st century. Otherwise it is clean of course with friendly service as you can find everywhere in Norway. The...
