Overlooking the Galtesund strait, this hotel is located in the historical district of Tyholmen in central Arendal. It offers free Wi-Fi in public areas and free gym access. Great location in the old part of town and right on the water! Many of the rooms have views of the water. And great value for the money!
The charming Grand Hotel Arendal is 8 minutes’ walk from Arendal Station and just 984 feet from Pollen Harbor. It offers free Wi-Fi and rooms with flat-screen TVs. Staff is very friendly and 24 hr reception. They do their best to help me to solve any problem about the facilities.
Located in the Tyholmen area of Arendal, Thon Hotel Arendal offers free WiFi and rooms with cable TV and mini-bar. The fish market, restaurants and shops at Pollen Harbor are 328 feet away. Great breakfast! One of the best I have had at a hotel so far.
Some aspects of Arendal are quite lovely, especially the old town and the area around the waterfront BUT some serious town planning was lacking when they built a big performance centre / town hall, and a big shopping centre in the downtown core. Poor choice of architectural style as well as making for a very crowded, claustrophobic area. You could say the same of many streets and buildings near the downtown, especially the main-drag into the old core area. Bad planning all the way around. Something really should be done to save this town and make it the attractive seaside town it should be.

Very good & substantial breakfast. Not often you get fresly made omelet on a Norwegian hotel breakfats buffet. Very new and modern bathroom. Great view from my room. Had two sets of windows, one facing the harbour, the other the old town and the beautiful church. Absolutely fantastic bed. Great with water kettle so you can make your own coffee before breakfast. Great wifi!

The hotel promises an inclusive evening meal which makes it look great value. In truth it amounts to some soup and a bit of green salad or cold pasta. When queried, the hotel says it is only meant to be a supper which it is barely that. Eating out in Arendal is very expensive and needs to be considered carefully. Hotel is fine though.
