A good stay at the hotel when having a business trip. Good location and also good service. The rooms could have been a bit bigger. Nice breakfast in a nice atmosphere. Fixed taxi rate from hotel to airport.

It is so easy to provide good wifi, this hotel does not have it... =( Otherwise a very pleasant stay. Close to citycenter, nice breakfast. However I would choose another hotel for my next stay, simply for the ability to be online.

Among other Clarion Hotels I have visited in Norway, that is the best in terms of service and hotel decoration. If you plan to visit Kristiansand, that is the place to stay and don't forget to ask for Lydia at the reception, she will put a smile on your face the moment you see her!

First of the reception was very good with a friendly staff and the rooms where big and good looking (we had the Deluxe dobbeltrom). The lobby was very modern with a great style, you got a taste of luxury. The breakfast was also very good with great selection of everything you could wish for. The hotels location is right with...

I stayed at this hotel for a conference. Despite it's historic exterior, this is a very modern and newly renovated hotel with all amenities. The rooms are clean, comfortable and modern, and quiet for being in the middle of the city. Note that not all rooms have exterior windows. The food is quite decent. The interior design is certainly different... More

We have been staying at variousClarion Hotels throughout Norway and Sweden over the last month. We have now come to expect a different experience at each hotel--the Clarion Management (Nordic Choice Hotel Group) has apparently not come to grips with how to instill consistency across all there hotels. This Hotel was a real downer--not because of the rooms or location,... More

Very good service and friendly people made this stay very pleasant. Good breakfast with freshly made omelet and pancakes, centrally located in city and short walk to the shops and the harbor. I can recommend this hotel if you are visiting Kristiansand.

This is a very nice hotel in the city centre of Kristiansand. I stayed here with my boyfriend in a standard room one night in connection with our trip to Denmark, as the hotel is located very close to the Color Line terminal. The room was perhaps a bit small, but then again it was just a standard room. The... More

We had a really nice stay at Ernst hotel, and the breakfast was great. The only minus was a terrible air-condition and no windows to open (inboard room). Exept from this our overall review is that this is a great hotel.
