I stayed at the hotel for 1 night on a short visit to Bergen in July 2011. Although I was travelling alone and had asked for a single room, the hotel was relatively busy at the time of my visit and they gave me a twin room instead. I couldn't complain as the extra bed proved useful for packing my luggage after a whirlwind 10 day trip across 5 Northern European countries.
The hotel, as with other Thon Hotels, was basic but it had all the amenities you would expect of a hotel for the price. The room was clean and the bed was especially soft and comfortable - those who prefer a harder mattress may have some issues with the bed but this bed was good for me. As some other reviewers have noted, the walls between rooms are a little thin and if you're staying next to the (slightly old-fashioned) elevators, it may get a bit noisy when people are moving about early in the morning. A slight peeve was the fact that the TV only has very limited channels (but its not a big problem since no one really goes to Bergen to stay in the room and watch TV).
Breakfast buffet was really good and a treat given the expensive prices in Bergen (and in Norway, generally). One can easily fill him/herself up with the extensive buffet and you would probably be able to skip lunch.
Location wise, Bergen is a nice compact town and the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the historic Bryggen wharf and historic shops lining the waterfront. Getting from the hotel to any other point in Bergen should take you no more than a nice 15 - 20 minute walk and the airport bus stops just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. I made use of the airport bus both to and from the airport.
All in all, the Thon Hotel Bergen Brygge is a basic, affordable and pleasant hotel located in the heart of the historic Bryggen neighbourhood and I would recommend the hotel to my family and friends.
