We will have a car for 1.5 days in Bergen, staying at the Thon hotel. Any experience with parking near that hotel or somewhere walkable to the hotel?
There are 4 Thon hotels around Bergen, but I'm guessing the former Bergen Brygge, now Thon Orion, which has paid parking available. Did they offer it when booking the room? Otherwise, as you may already know, Rick's book suggests the large and also relatively expensive parking garage near the bus station.
Of course, you could try to find a spot in the streets, but sometimes
it is hard to find a space at all. And it’s not any cheaper either. In
the garages in Bergen you can safely leave your car while enjoying the
beautiful city of Bergen.
