I am normally a low maintenance tourist causing hotels little in the way of grief but, before I had even arrived at the Thon Gildevangen, I had made two demands of the place. 1) I requested a quiet room as I had noticed feedback that it could be quite noisy out front 2) I indicted an early arrival well in...

Pretty standard Thon hotel. Very clean, comfortable bed, nice sized room for Europe, good selection at breakfast and polite front desk. Stayed there two nights, First nite which was a Sunday nite, there was continuous noise from the street under my third floor window. Very rowdy kids that made it impossible to fall asleep. They finally disappeared about 5 am...

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times, and I think it is nice and cosy. The rooms are rather small, but have everything you need. Nice beds, very clean, windows that can open, good breakfast, and friendly staff. The hotel has an evening buffet included, which is a very nice treat. Coffee and tea in the lobby...

As a travelling sales rep, I often arrive by my own car or hired car. Hotels in the town centres are good, because you can enjoy the town after work, but can leave the car at the hotel. This hotel was not meant for people arriving by car. Many one-way streets made it hard to find, and also the entrance...

This hotel is nothing more than average. Sure, the location is great - in the middle of the city centre. There's a pub in the ground floor which can be quite noisy. The rooms are spacious, but have signs of wear and tear. The included WiFi is slow (1 mb/s), you don't get any bathroom amenities and the breakfast lacks...

Arrived in the morning and it took some time for them to organise a room for us - we had to approach the desk 30 minutes later only to find they had already prepared a room, they forgot we were waiting. Whilst waiting, there was a fantastic play area for the children and also noticed this in other Thon hotels....

I stayed here recently in room 361. Room was a little small, but fine as it was clean and very comfortable. Good TV and internet access too. Modern furniture and very comfortable bed. The room I was in was next to the elevator, and I could hear everything people were talking about when walking out. As people were coming and...

We stayed 3 nights and got a discount for a longer stay on their website. Room is on the smaller size but still fine and quite comfortable. Shower is small but we have seen smaller. The staff at the front desk was wonderful and accommodating and always available to answer questions, hand out umbrellas when it was raining, etc. They...

Had the pleasure of staying one night in Sept, 2012. So easy to find from the train station. The hotel staff was great. Our check in was smooth. Prior to arrival I received a couple of emails informing me to call if I would not arrive by 4pm. The ability to reserve and/or pre-pay on Thon's website would have been...
