Very good Hotel located in the center of Kristiansand Norway. Placed close to beautiful surrounding areas with the sea and a small beach. Do not miss out on a walk in the area. Looking forward to my next visit.

The location is quiet as it is close to the sea front. We were hoping that there were some restaurants or bars by the sea, but couldn't find any. Had to walk to the city centre, which was approx 10-15 minutes away. There is a bar in the hotel, but in the reception area so not very cozy. Parking was very expensive, but convenient as it is in a parking garage close by the hotel. Hotel room was decent, but we struggled with regulating the temperature. It was too warm for us, and the reception said that we "should only give it time" - well, the regulation didn't work and we had to open the window. Breakfast buffet was good and well organized.

Scandic Hotel Bystranda's marketing promised "the best room" with "fantastic view", and we paid 400 euros for one night. But the room was no good, with backyard views, cheap furniture, no chairs to sit in, no bathtub, and useless shower. Deserves no more than 3 stars rating. The hotel receptionist agreed that their own description of the rooms are dishonest, i.e. the management must believe in short term profit before happy guests obviously. I've seen better rooms for half the price in Kristiansand, so look elsewhere...

Dear Hansen501. Thank you for submitting a review. Our rooms have different layout and are placed in different areas facing different outdoor views, the room design is in a functional scandinavian style and may not be everyone's favorite. I hope you enjoyed our breakfast and our friendly staff. Thank you for staying with us and enjoy the rest of your summer. Best regards,
