I had researched hotels pretty intensively and knew I wanted to be located in the central area and the price was right for the Thon Gildevangen. It turned out to be a great choice. The location was perfect, the room was very nice and the breakfast was the best I had the entire trip. I made the reservation on their site and with a “stay two nights, get 20% discount”, I paid about $100 per night. Room 551 was compact, but the curved wall of big windows was great; double bed was comfortable; the slanted ceiling over the bed might be a problem for some folks but was fine for me; large bathroom (heated floor!); big flat screen TV with lots of English-language channels. The complimentary breakfast was served in a large room on the 2nd floor with lots of windows and it was super. Various cold meats, cheeses, cereals, fruit, fish, yogurt, muesli, breads, rolls & coffee cake; hot items (eggs, bacon, beans); plus juices, coffee, etc. Everything was fresh and tasty. Also convenient is that the bus from the airport (Flybussen) stops at the corner, so only had to carry my luggage about 80 feet.
Only negatives: there was no closet – just 3 hooks next to the door and the room lighting was a little dim so not great for reading. And, room was HOT – this was a theme throughout the trip and something I remembered from other trips, so I had to open the windows. No top sheet, just a duvet, so was still hot. Unfortunately with the windows open, the noise from people in the streets was loud. The double windows did an excellent job at blocking the street noise, but then it was too warm.
