Thon Hotel Bergen Airport3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I've stayed in Thon Airport quite a few times, more than 20 for sure. It was a very average hotel before they renewed the interior, but, the best addition I think was the coffee machines. You can get a very good coffee there, which is hard to find in scandinavia in general. Breakfast is nice too, plenty of choices, not Rica kind off plenty, but enough.
Have stayed at this hotell twice.the first time in august this year and they were updating their resteaurant so the breakfast was a bit smaller in selection.Now it`s in the restaurant ,and a great selection of food.The rooms are good,clean,quiet,comfy beds.The hotel have a swimmingpool it`s open fra 6-22 each day ,it`s great for relaxing.They also have a training area for weight and easy training. The restaurant have amazing food ,good service.I tried one of their meals on the meny and it tasted amazing .
Ended up with this hotel by a booking mistake, and did not bother to change the booking since it was a "airport hotel". The hotel is located 2 km from the airport with no organized transfer (at least nothing to be found at the airport) - so be prepared to pay 150 for a taxi - if someone is willing to drive the short distance. The rooms did look okay by first glance, but it was soon clear that it would not be possible to sleep properly. Air-condition did not work, window could no be kept open due to traffic noise and due to the bathroom fan that were going at full speed it was basically not possible to sleep. Breakfast quality is low, pre-cut bread, cheap ham, overcooked scrambled eggs, cheap juice and poor coffee. Bergen has a huge selection of great hotels offering high quality service and food - this is not one of them. Even if you get it cheap - spend 100 nok more and get something modern and up to date.
The Thon Hotel Bergen Airport is a slightly tired / worn property that is NOT walkable with luggage to/from the airport. I would only consider this property if there is a significant price difference vs the two properties located adjacent to the airport. Because there is no transfer service make sure to add the cost of a light rail ticket or taxi to your room rate. The hotel is located 1km from the airport or 200m from the second light rail stop from the airport but you will need to climb a small hill / stairs to reach the property from the light rail. The property is well-used. The rooms are large enough for a couple with a few pieces of luggage. The bathrooms have ok lighting and showers. Note that the windows are slightly difficult to black out. Similar to other properties in Scandinavian, the rooms were slightly stuffy at night. Did not try the food as departure was too early. There is a Nescafé coffee maker and a few pastries for early departures. Breakfast opens at 5:30am. TRANSPORT - This is where the property fails in my opinion. At only 1km distance, management should offer a free shuttle service. The light rail costs NOK 27 per person per way and a pre-booked taxi to the airport costs > NOK 200. Imagine asking a taxi driver at the airport who has been waiting to drive 1 KM? I would not so I don't know the price to the hotel. The flybus refused to stop in front of the property on the way to the airport. Neither the bus nor light rail stops are convenient if you have anything more than a carryon with wheels. They do have a transfer at 545, 600, 615am on weekdays but obviously not all guests have departures between 7-9am. If transfer is offered in the future, the property is worth considering.
I booked the Thon Kostadvegen 3 because it was billed as the Thon- Airport; however it required taking the light rail for 20 minutes or a cab to the hotel from the Airport. I had recently had a bad break, and traveled with the advice of my physician to use a wheelchair and crutches to be non weight bearing. I traveled with my husband and 21 year old son. Having several bags as well as the wheel chair, and not knowing how accessible the light rail was, we took a cab. We were quite surprised how far the " Airport" hotel was from the airport. Bergen is not really a city for autos- so we chanced the light rail to get into the city center. We had arrived early and were able to lock our bags in the storage room in the basement. The hotel staff assured us that it was a short walk from the Hotel. Although they were correct that a fit person could walk to the rail in 10 minutes- there was absolutely no accessible route! There was a choice of long steep high stairs, or a very steep hill leading to a street. we took the hill, and were surprised to see that the sidewalk ended and we were forced to use the street, and to cross a busy intersection not designed with appropriate cross walks. It wasn't until we made it to the light rail station that we had some ( Some!) accommodations. The light rail did not have a place for the wheelchair, not did it have a good way over the gap between the platform and the train. As an aside, I will say that in general most of Norway' public transport (NSB) did not have any assistance for my wheelchair. On the way home from Bergen, in the pouring rain, the way back up to the Hotel was an absolute nightmare. When we arrived soaked and completely bedraggled, the staff asked in a disdainful way could they help us- I explained that we were checking in and our bags were stored in the basement. They informed us they had no rooms! I told them were were reserved and paid in full. After 15 minutes of looking for our names, I spelled my name and she said that I had pronounced it wrong, ( I have a Norwegian name, but am an American) and that is why she couldn't find our reservations. The tiny lift barely held my wheel chair- and we had no assistance. I gave it 3 stars because the rooms were clean and pleasant, and the breakfast (free) was nice and bountiful. Perhaps if one was fit and healthy, you will enjoy your stay more.
I had booked it thru Expedia based on needing 3 rooms, 2 of which needed to connect and there was airport shuttle service, which we didn’t find out there was none on the weekends. We checked in, went to our rooms which all 3 had hair all over and the linens smelled. We immediately checked out.
What a nice place!, when I saw we were booked at the airport for our stay in Bergen I was a little worried at first, but this place worked very well for us. The rooms are new clean with nice facilities, ok the restaurant was still under construction but we hardly noticed this during our stay, the breakfast was great and best of all the "normal" guests were seperated from the busguests which gave us a quite relaxing start of the day. There is a train nearby that takes you right into town and prices for public transport are reasonable. Also nice to go to Ulriken from here as it is in between the airport and the city. We climbed up this was nice but make sure you are in shape or it will take you some time, very steep climb with a great view over the city. I would go here again anytime business or pleasure.
Very nice and clean hotel, located close to the airport. If you didn't sleep good for a long time - here it is possible! Fresh air and calmness. Food was also good. WiFi is applicable. Thank you for warm welcome.
The room was quite nice and clean, what you would expect at this price. The breakfast however was the worst I've had in a long time. Generally the breakfast at Thon hotels are OK, but never as great as competing chains Scandic and Choice hotels. This time however the selection was poor, presentation messy and taste bland. They also had all the guests jammed into a conference room with long-tables and way to many people. Not what you expect when wanting a relaxing and good breakfast. I wanted to get out of there as fast as possible. Really disappointed.
As the name stated, this hotel is near to Bergen Airport but rest assured that you will not hear the noises by planes taking off or landing but there is still some distance away. This hotel is also one of the few better hotels that we had stayed in our entire recent Scandinavia tour. The hotel has a modern and trendy theme, huge lobby (with lots of seats) and land area. Our tour group arrived at the hotel around at about 6.30pm and the check in process was fast and prompt despite of other tour groups checking in, mostly the Japanese. Do note that in the evening and morning, the lobby was extremely crowded with large groups of guests checking in and out respectively and so do take note of your luggage and valuables. Our room was 109, on the 1st floor, meaning we do not have to take lift and so in a short while, we had already checked into our room. The room was very cosy, nice, clean and spacious with a nice outside view from the window! There was also a huge and comfortable sofa which we enjoyed! The bed was very soft and comfortable and we have a great sleep. The room had a kettle, fridge, TV but sadly no bathtub or it would be perfect! It also had aircon (most European hotels do not have that) and was functioning like a charm. Wifi connection was fast and stable and was offered free! What is interesting was that there were 3 self-service coffee machines at the lobby where hotel guests can help themselves with the coffee free of charge! That's a very nice gesture unlike other hotels offering similar services but at a cost! Awesome. As the hotel's cafe was under some renovation work, we had our meals in the ballroom instead that was setup like school canteen (in rows) though but was ok, as it was spacious with nice table and wall decor, skirting on the dinning table. We had both dinner and breakfast at the cafe with the former a 3-course meal and the latter buffet styled. The dinner was just passable (main course was fish but dessert was good and flavoured tomato soup if I did not remember wrongly) while the breakfast buffet had quite a good spread of items, generally western and Scandinavian items. Staff was friendly and polite. Outside the hotel was the carpark and there were some metal tables and chairs to allow guests to rest or have a drink (from the lounge or pub) and enjoying the nice green surrounding. With a short walk from the hotel (about 200-300m), there were some cafes and eateries and a supermarket Rema 1000 (closed by 11pm), where you could grab some snacks, fruits or supper if you feel like eating at night. Our stay here was enjoyable and were highly satisfied as it met our expectations!
