  • 4.0.Fair

    not great

    Air condition is unadjustable. Worst pillows ever, thin and overused. Very few hangers in the closet. After two days without housekeeping we inquired and were told they don’t do housekeeping if you’re staying for 3 nights unless one asks. We did ask, but didn’t happen. Small rooms. Good breakfast.

    Pleasant weekend gateway

    The parking is not included. There will be a daily fee and you have no in/out privileges so just something to keep in mind if you have your own vehicle. Everything else was great. Helpful staff, walkable areas and delicious breakfast :)

    Classic Radisson style and quality with excellent location, food and very helpful staff. Only downside was the odour coming from the drain system. It’s overpowering and needs addressing

    Amazing and always looking forward to stay here!

    It was absolutely amazing! This will be my 3rd time staying at Radisson Blu. The first time was back in 2015, the 2nd trip was in 2018 (just right after a day the hotel was open for business after their major renovations) and the most recent one was last week. To date, I have seen the amount of effort taken by the hotel management in order to ensure the stay is always a beautiful one and it starts from the staff gesture up to the hotel environment itself. I must mention about Alva, the beautiful girl who works in the front desk who is not only charming but very accommodating with any concerns I raised. The room was super comfortable but I wish I had the one with bath tub :) but not sure if there is one. The bed, mattress, pillows, room arrangement, designs, the big screen TV - perfect including the room-keeping service as well. Besides the hotel itself, the location of this hotel also need credits. The view from the room facing the Fiskebrygga will give a glimpse of North Sea (I hope my Geography knowledge is correct) and if you stay long enough you might get a chance to see the cruise ships as well. It is very near to the city center and during the summer all the concert areas are also within few meter walk. The hotel also has a bar on their roof top which gives the full view of Kristiansand! If there is something which I would suggest to improve, it would be the gym. Not a big deal, as it has the equipment which is more than enough but the environment can better.
