Known as the city of seven mountains, Bergen is perfect as a base for exploring Norway’s beautiful coastline. To get a taste of Norway’s picturesque countryside just take the funicular railway, a short walk from the hotel, to the top of Floyen mountain. Standing at 320m above sea level, it offers unrivalled views of the city and its surrounding mountains and fjords. Back in the city, the hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of several of Bergen’s major attractions including its Hanseatic wharf. Recognised by UNESCO as one of Norway’s best examples of medieval settlements, Bryggen comprises of extensive remains of a merchant harbour. Elsewhere, the 13th century Royal Residence, bustling fish market and multiple museums and art galleries make Bergen an excellent tourist destination.
Offering contemporary accommodation in a thousand year old city, Thon Hotel Bristol’s rooms are stylish and comfortable. Each well-appointed room has free wireless internet, a mini-bar, an en suite bathroom and a flat-screen TV complete with a selection of movies. Upgrade for larger rooms, tea and coffee making facilities and travellers magazines. There are also 13 spacious family rooms that sleep three or four with an extra bed. In a city mad for all things horticultural, the suites come with fresh flowers, chocolates and a coffee machine.
A real highlight of Egon, the hotel’s restaurant, is its breakfast spreads. Expect a variety of breads and pastries, a salad bar, cheeses, a selection of hot food including meatballs and eggs, fruits, yogurts, tea and coffee.
