The hotel is located in center of Kristiansand, a short stroll away from everything. The room was spacious with plenty of room for baby bed and stroller. Really good breakfast. Friendly and smiling staff.

I'm a regular visitor to Kristiansand I stay here on business and always at the Clarion. I usually arrive late, check in is quick and very efficient. The décor is fresh and the rooms are very clean although a little dark for my liking, but that seems to be the norm in Norway. Towels and bed linen are spotless and... More

We had a great stay at Clarion Hotel Ernst. The location is perfect. Friendly staff. Great bar in the lobby. Very good breakfast. We had a good sized room, witch was spotless and nicely decorated. We have no complaints, and would definately consider this hotel if we visit Kristiansand again

My wife and I had our wedding night at the hotel, and we are really happy with our stay. The room was clean and the people working at the reception and bar were very polite and kind. The hotel is located in the middle of Kristiansand with shopping and restaurants very close.

I stayed here for a night because I had a great time at a Clarion up north. The night was eh. The hotel itself is beautiful and the room was very nice (if a bit small). The location is also perfect being so close to the bus station and main shopping areas. However, there was a very, very loud event... More

Stayed there one evening. The hotel is clean, breakfast excellent and the staff is friendly but sadly some of them need training in customer service. Our room was extremely warm, 28 degrees c which wouldn't have been a problem if the ac worked or we could open a window. First complained before we went out to dinner, and they said... More

As usual your stay in Kristiansand is always elevated when you stay at Ernst. Good service and nice hotel. The breakfast is always one of the most important things starting a busy day. And this hotel always delivers a good selection of light and more advanced dishes.
