Very nice and clean hotel, with a very central location. The break-fast had a good variety and was very tasty! The spa (sauna and steam-bath) in the basement made our day on a rainy, windy day :) I would go back any time!

I've been to Clarion Hotel Ernst on a number of occasions, and I am always satisfied with everything. The rooms are nice and clean, the service is very good and the hotel has a great atmosphere. I can absolutely recommend Ernst when staying in Kristiansand for either business or a holdiay.

It's a bit dark in the design, but it's beautiful. This lovely girl called Stina told us the history of the hotel while serving us food. The breakfast was huge. They had everything one could want, from your own omelet to different types of fresh fruit.

Central location and ideal for business meetings and possibly small conferences with the emphasis on small, great catering facilities with professional staff that appear experienced in looking after guests.

Very central location. Stayed 4 nights in a single room facing the atrium, very quiet. The room and bathroom were clean. The bed was wide, but too soft (I found out too late that the other side of the bed was firmer / harder), Minibar in the room, and the WiFi appeared to work perfectly. The staff was VERY corteous,...

This hotel was the best in Kristansand for 1 to 2 years ago. But now we have 2- 3 hotels in this city who is better. Try the New Scandic Bystranda or Comfort Kristiansand instead. The service level have been poor the last months, the maintenance is leaking and the overall experience is not so good as it should be... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks for a work trip. Big mistake, next time I will try the Radisson down the street. All I ask for in a business trip hotel is 2 main things: cleanliness and a good nights sleep. Want a LIVE BAND keeping you up on Thursday Friday and Saturday night (and sometimes Wednesday)? Then stay at Clarion.... More

I really liked this hotel. Excellent service from the get go, different and relaxing atmosphere, clean room (upgraded but very small). Bed was decent. However, I would like one thing changed that would make this place top notch. The coffee (although free) was hardly drinkable. Maybe not so important in the afternoon, but I do like my coffee in the... More
