When I came to the hotel a very friendly receptionist helped me with everything I needed. She asked me which floor I would like to be on, and made it happen. Unfortunately, there was something wrong with (I believe) the air-condition that night, so my room had an awful smell. The receptionist, Stine, was very friendly and polite and helped...

When I checked in 2 days ago, the friendly desk clerk looked for a really good room to upgrade me to (I'm entitled to an upgrade as a platinum member of Discovery, when available). I got a superior room that was essentially a suite. It also had a huge balcony (not much use, though, since it's wintertime). Nice easy chair...

This is a typical mid-range Norwegian hotel - smallish rooms, very small bathrooms, slightly sloppy attention to detail (location of hooks etc in the bathroom are not ideal, no shoe horn in the room, elevator located through fire doors, etc etc). But it was tidy, reasonably clean, and reasonably priced - it did its job (place to sleep for a...

Has all the basic needs, nothing wow, if your going for work, perfect centrally located, and it has very friendly staff, and a good restaurant where the hotel breakfast is served too. I wouldnt stay here if it was on holiday or with 2 - 3 people, as the rooms are quite small

Stayed at the hotel for a few nights in July while visiting Kristiansand and Dyreparken. The location is superb, very central if you want to explore the city of Kristiansand. It is in the middle of the shopping district with lots of cafes and restaurants right outside the door. Parking is a hassle, it´s either street parking or parking spaces...
