Very good 8.4 From 529 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
A very pleasant and cool hotel in central Kristiansand. Family friendly, good beds. Good COVID-approach, the hand desinfectant stinks like old home brew, though😌 We will definitely come back.
Boze, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Quick getaway
Generally the hotel was good with a very Clean and comfortable room. The staff was also friendly and hard working. My only complaint is that residents were allowed to go to the buffet and serve themselves. They did have a separate buffet were someone was safely serving you. I did ask one of the workers who has mentioned that they used to serve people and not let them touch the buffet but the government had dropped that requirement and therefore they didn’t feel the need to serve people. I simply do not feel that a proud hotel manager should do the “bare minimum” to protect the residents!

Superb experience
This hotel was awesome. Very clean, great staff (Laura even called up to make sure everything was ok and see if we needed anything else), great location close to train, buss, restaurants, shopping, cathedral, Fish Market, waterfront and huge park with great views. Breakfast was amazing. I would stay here again without question.

Convenient location
In Clarion style the room was incredibly dark and the main lamp didn’t work making it impossible to see properly. Some maintenance issues throughout the room. Breakfast starts at 6.30 but still setting up after 7. Convenient location to the city though and staff were polite.
