I want to highlight the complimentary breakfast, an own chef is dedicated to make freshly made omelettes and pancakes while you wait beside him/her. Service is great, clean/modern rooms, good beds, professional lobby bar, the works.. You might want a room upgrade, I never tried the smallest single bed rooms.

Stayed here one night on a short city break. The hotel is very stylish, and located right in the city centre. There are also several clubs and restaurants nearby, though the hotel feels very quiet. Staff was very welcoming and service-minded, and parking was easy to find. I did however, pre-book parking, as recommended on their website – the hotel... More

Nice and affordable hotel in the heart of Krisitansand city. Very good service, especially from the front desk. The breakfast is OK, but not the best on the market. The rooms have good standard but it can be confusing to find your room in the beginning. If you travel with a family I recommend that you book or upgrade your... More

Clarion Hotel Ernst has a very central location downtown Kristiansand, just a few steps from the main street "Markens". The rooms are modern and the beds are comfy, but be aware some of the rooms are facing the atrium. These rooms are, however, really quiet. Good variety in the breakfast buffet and the breakfast staff are competent to fill the... More

I went to Kristiansand to see the Backstreet Boys. The location was the most important thing, and it was superb! Close proximity to everything. The room was nice and the service great. Will visit again!

A clean hotel. I especially liked the spa and relax area, I had a good workout in the morning. As usual the kitchen staff didn't know the differense between lactose and milkprotein allergy, so it was good that we had brought our own milkfree margarine.

We are a family of 4, and was staying for three nights in Kristiansand. The reception was good, and the room was of good standard and tidy/clean. The breakfast was very good. The only complaint from my side was that the bar was out of key ingredients to make cocktails/long drinks. A great hotel in the center of Kristiansand.

Easy and fast check in & out. Nice rooms with everything you need. The bed is like no other. You will sleep like a baby, and there is no noize from areas around the hotel. The amazing breakfast will make sure you will fell like a king.

Hotel location walking distance to train and bus station, fish market, shopping, restaurants, harbor, etc. very convenient. Breakfast is a huge spread including omelet and pancake/waffle bar and fresh ground coffee machine which also dispensed lattes, espressos, and cappuccinos. The lobby decor is exotic and modern, but somewhat elaborate and gaudy; however, I never judge a hotel by their lobby.... More
