    Worn out hotel

    The hotel is worn out and overpriced. The light in the room only partially functioned and the room had a distinct smell of a previous occupant smoking. Very friendly staff who explained that the smoke detector in the room was disabled (with a plastic bag covering it) in order to prevent false alarms.

    A good experience in the heart of Kristiansand

    The rooms could have used an upgrade, but overall good for the price you pay. Great survice!

    Black fungus, dirty wall to wall carpeting

    Dirty run down hotel, black fungus in the bathroom, wall to wall carpet from 1980, dusty and dirty. Breakfast was hit and miss, "if they happened to have space" so we never got any, which was probably a good thing. Not worth it.

    Ideal for the centre of town and the ferry port.

    The hotel is centrally located and ideal for the ferry to Denmark. The room was clean and quite large though the bathroom was a bit dated. It is within easy walking of the town centre including bars and restaurants.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property is definitely good value for money. Not a 5-star and needs rennovations but it is not a horrible place in fact it was way better than I expected based on some reviews. Great location, quiet and big spacious rooms. Really just dated in terms of decor.

    Hotel was in a good down town location. Hotel is very tired and in need of renovation. My understanding is the Radisson Blu hotel which is connected and check-in is via their reception will be renovating in the future.

    Served the purpose.

    Arrived late on the colorline ferry. This hotel is connected and service by the Radisson front desk 24/7. The price matches what you get. Definitely not the raddison but served the purpose to crash for the night. Public parking deck next-door cost $30 US for the night. The town seemed pretty lively on a Friday night. Outside the hotel there was a few night clubs that were packed.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Helt greit. Mye for pengene.

    Fire voksne. To i køyeseng og to i dobbeltseng. En lenestol og en kontorstol. Helt ok rom for en familie som trenger et sted å sove. Stort rom som det fint gikk an å bruke kvelden på. Vi koste oss med Chrome cast. Badet må man ta med en klype salt. Er gammelt og umoderne men rent. Bra med handklær. Eneste vi savnet var et lite kjøleskap. Ligger sentralt og fint. Inngang fra parkeringshuset Parco. Parco har ikke ladestasjon. Men det er ladestasjoner i nærheten.
