Thon Hotel Bergen Brygge
Travel Blogs from Bergen
Weer vroeg op en onderweg vandaag (donderdag), travel naar Bergen en da's toch een 3,5 uur rijden (enkel). Bij onze heen en weer naar Bergen hebben we exact 82 tunnels gedaan, een redelijk vermoeiend traject dus. Nog wel bergachtig maar wat minder ruw, vergelijkbaar met een rit in Zwitserland of zo.
Eerste indruk van Bergen? zeer mooi …
Mt Floyen, as I mentioned is the most “popular” mountain surrounding Bergen, but as far as hiking and view goes, it’s good, but not as good as two of the others - Ulriken (631 meters) and Lovstakken (477 meters). Trystan has hiked Lovstakken several times, most recently with his Dad and brother, Gareth, when they visited in March …
The plan for today was for Trystan to come into town and then have him take us around to see some of the sights. He met us at our hotel late morning and we set off on foot to explore the city. Bergen is both a large city (250,000 people) and a quaint small town - and it does both very well. If you get off of the main street into side streets, you …
Today is the long anticipated “Norway in a Nutshell” trip that would take us from Oslo to Bergen via train, ferry, bus, and then train again. Our train was leaving at 8:10 from Oslo S train station a few stops up from where we were staying. Travel time was 18-20 minutes. We factored in everything except time to eat breakfast (which was …
... anticipated after visiting those in New Zealand - those we travelled were basically inlets and channels. The city of Bergen spreads right around many of the fjords and while it has a population of 250,000 or thereabouts it has few densely settled areas. The bus trip back was about 2 hours because of what was just about the biggest traffic jam Bergen had experienced (an oil spill) but although we were late half the group stuck with it an we did the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Thon Hotel Bergen Brygge
In this convenient place it is nice to stay for appr. two days. Rooms are ok and people are friendly.
You have to know that the bar and restaurant are closed! (this is not mentioned on the web page)
Be aware of the inconvenient shower (Half bad) which is slippery also.
My husband and I stayed at the Bryggen Orion for 4 nights earlier this month. We had a standard room which was very small and poorly arranged.
Use another hotel
great location,but unfriendly staff,the bar was not open at all !,we asked for a room with a view but was facing an office block 20 yrds in front off us,room was quite spacious but only because we asked for an extra bed for a 5 yr old and charged us 100 nkr,we left breakfast because they has roast potatos and veg(leftovers from night before) the parking was 200 mtrs aways so take your brolly to get the car back as it always rains in bergen they also charge you 100 nkr for that service.But give bergen a try but stay somewhere else(sas radison)
Great stay at Bryggen - every time!
This hotel is great for short visits to Bergen. Excellent location, I found it quiet by night, but just around the corner from all the city activities and attractions.
The food is really good and you will find tea making facilities in the rooms, which is rather unusual, probably a result of the many British groups staying here too.
The most important detail - staff are really friendly and helpful.
I used to stay at this hotel and many more as a tour guide, so when I compare it to hundreds of others, it still remains one of my very favourite city centre hotels.
Convenient, but room quality varies
You can't beat the location - right in the heart of Bryggen, the old city - and the breakfast buffet features a waffle maker and do-it-yourself eggs. There was also a free light dinner Monday - Thursday, which you'll appreciate once you see the prices in Bergen's restaurants. But avoid odd numbered rooms below about N45 (where N is the floor number) because these face a very busy street and the spotlight that shines on the front of the hotel also shines right into the room. Standard rooms are very small - opt for a junior suite. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and when I complained about the noise and light, they moved us to a better room as soon as one became available. All in all, a reasonable value for the money.
Perefect for exploring
stayed here last summer and found it comfortable and perfectly positioned for exploring Bergen on foot. Convenient parking too a bonus. Rooms were simple but well equipped, and we had a lovely view over the harbour Best of all was the amazing buffet breakfast- sufficient to keep us going until evening which is a bonus in a country where food is so expensive. Would highly recommend it as also good value for money
Average, run of the mill hotel.
Average, run-of-the-mill hotel. We visited here in February 2001 and arrived by train from Oslo. We found the hotel fine - nothing exceptional - but basic clean room with cable TV and en-suite bathroom. Hot buffet breakfast was excellent. Location great - all attractions within walking distance. Pleasant bar with open log fire in the evenings. However, the hotel has no quad rooms for families. We stayed here as the price was the cheapest amongst other comparable hotels in Bergen.
