Overall our experience with the Thon Bristol Bergen was not great.
The hotel is located centrally, although isn't in the "touristy" area by the harbor (3-4 block walk).
We were in Bergen on an unusually hot evening, so our room was quite stifling (no air conditioning, as is often the case in Scandinavia). We had windows which opened up into a courtyard in the middle of the hotel, which was quite possibly the most off-putting part of our stay. The courtyard was dirty and grimy and had garbage stacked up in it, which put off a bad odor and was gross to look at. The heat and the smell together did not go together well. The hotel overall was quite noisy.
Our room itself was pretty clean and the bathroom was fine. The hallways were dirty however and had both clean and dirty linens stacked up in some places.
The complimentary breakfast was fine, although not as nice as some others we experienced on our trip. Front desk staff was adequately nice but did not go out of their way to be helpful.
Overall, this hotel serves its purpose if all you need is a decent place to stay a night and you aren't planning to make it a long-term stay or are expecting something luxurious or romantic. I think that the biggest irritation to me was simply that the hotel was the worst one we stayed in our entire 2 week trip...but we paid far more for it than any of our other much nicer hotels. And definitely request a room that does not look over the courtyard!!!
