My family stayed at the Thon Bristol Hotel for one night in the July of 2011. The hotel is also very close to the Bergen train station. We were able to walk to the hotel (pulling our suit cases) in about 5 minutes. We also found it very centrally located as we were able to walk to many of the main areas of Oslo.
All the basics were covered for a good stay: clean room, friendly service, and a good breakfast. The hotel also has free WI-FI, not just in the lobby but in your room as well. There is also a computer in the lobby that has Internet access.
The hotel is next to a Macdonald’s – plus or minus depending on your point of view.
This was a first for me - the mini bar in our room was actually a vending machine. Also, in our room there was no bathtub. The shower was actually open to the rest of the bathroom with just a little divider separating it.
A very nice touch is the coffee/latte machine that is in the lobby that is free to all guests.More
