Excellent, renovated room with little noise. Good internett access. Central location with good breakfast choises and nice atmosphere. The hotel is located near the train station and therefore has easy access by train.

Great design, modern, lovely decorated. Centrally located in the center of Kristiansand, close to the ferries. The breakfast was absolutely gorgeous, great selections. Nice family room with a bunkbed.

Stayed her for a couple of nights. Great hotel with good service. Great rooms, a bit small but comfortable. They could be a bit more thorough in cleaning the bathroom, a bit too much dust on top of the makeup mirror. Otherwise we had a great stay! Breakfast was excellent! If there's anything we would comment, is that the staff... More

Location perfect in the middle of the city, close to everything. No noise, excellent sleep quality. Was warned by reception staff that wifi was unstable in the rooms, but worked perfectly throughout my stay (only 24 hours so could still be a problem). Nice spacious room with a nice view over the reception area (actually quite nice though it sounds... More

In general a good and nice hotel with fabulous breakfast that I visit frequently. But this one time my pillow directly stank with Urin. And that is not acceptable. I don´t think it is intentional, but it must be a terrible mistake made by the chambermaid not to exchange the pillow.

Nice, slightly quirky hotel in a very good location. Breakfast is really good, and the staff helpful and cheery (at least by Norwegian standards). Beds and bathrooms are also good. The only real drawback is that a large number of the rooms face the inner, main hall - no fresh air. The check out was painfully slow, but probably just... More

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
