Stayed for two nights with my wife and two kids (4 and 7 years) in July. - Very nice, newly upgraded rooms. - Epic backyard where you can enjoy your breakfast, a beer or the complimentary evening waffles. - 12 minute drive from "Dyreparken". - Brilliant service.

This hotel is just great! Not only the rooms are bright and very clean (some say a bit small, but it was just right for me), the hotel is perfectly located only two blocks from market street, but the service in this hotel is awesome. Never felt such a warm welcoming before in Norway - the guy at the reception... More

We spent our first night at the Sjoglott Hotel. Its location is perfect for getting to know Kristiansand. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet is very good in terms of variety of things. Our room was clean and had a lovely view on the sea. The only downside was that there was just one matress for our... More

a little too minimalist. the price / performance ratio is okay (the cost of living in Norway is high). good breakfast. if you have no particular expectations may be fine. no more than two nights, though! we arrived late at night and the owner, already warned us waited even after the closing time of the reception. free wi-fi.

Very disappointing experience. This is like a hostel - not a hotel. Too expensive for the small rooms. Not properly cleaned either. Location is central but lacks management. Was told we would get nice room when we booked but could hardly move around the bed as the room is tiny.

Nice and uncomplicated hotel. Very friendly staff and the hotel is located in the city center very close to the sea, only a 5 min walk to the shopping street and the ferry to Denmark. They offer free internet which worked perfectly and the breakfast was really good.

Came to kristiansand for a few days and had a great stay here. Excellent location with basic but clean rooms and a very nice staff. Hotel is only a block from the water and area is great for runs and walks. Room included breakfast which was quite tasty.

Had a great experience at the Sjoglott Hotel in Kristiansand. Rooms are cozy but efficiently designed, the hotel is in a great location in the heart of town, and the owner went above and beyond when he let us do two loads of laundry immediately on our arrival. The hotel also has a nice courtyard that is a great place... More
