This is the second time we have stayed at the Kong Carl, about 15 years between visits. The common spaces of the hotel have been renovated since our last visit and are quite charming. The breakfast room was lovely and the breakfast was excellent. Very typical Norwegian breakfast items with many choices that were pleasingly displayed. The location is excellent... More

All in all a great stay - though my room was a little old - and not in the charming way. But considering the size, the location, the hotel atmosphere as such - it is a place I would visit again. Breakfast was fine - without any surprises.

First (good) point : I've been upgraded, without asking for anything special. It's always pleasant to be treated as a regular customer, even if it was the first time ! Second (good) point : the receptionnist was very helpful, and opened the breakfast 30mn before the schedule, because of early train. Third (good) point : rooms are clean, convenient, and... More

We stayed here the night before our flight out of Sandefjord airport, and wished we had stayed here instead of in Oslo over the weekend. This hotel had a great breakfast, friendly staff, warm rooms and lots of ambiance. The town was adorable too. Everything was within walking distance that we needed and wanted. 5 Star Recommendation!

I was greated by the receptionist on arrival, a quite empty place with no bar or restaurant, my room was unfourtenately in a annex with window toward the parking. This is a old hotel and i think the main buildning is nice to stay in. breakfast was very good in a cosy room.the staff is very nice and helpful.

I was disappointed that for what is supposed to be a decent hotel it looks great from the oustide but inside feels as though its last make over was several decades ago. I was in the anexe to the main hotel and the whole feel of the place was of a tired and worn building . THe curtains didn't fit... More

My second stay at the Hotell Kong Carl, and even better this time. They have done some work on the entry hall, very attractive. We were upgraded to a historic room at no extra cost, in the main part of the hotel. A lovely room and comfortable at the same time. Very comfortable bed. Modern bathroom with good bath products,...

Our room was in a separate building from the charming Norwegian house which is depicted on the website. It was next to the hotel's parking lot which remained noisy throughout the night. The room was adequate enough but the carpets on the floor and in the hallway were a little dirty. As we had to leave early for the airport... More

Nice receptionist, upgraded us to a "historic room" In spite of the age of the hotel very modern, clean facilities .Free wi fi in the room, free breakfast and delicious complimentary homemade waffles and coffee in the evening. Only negative comments are: no early breakfast, (we had an 8 o-clock flight from Sandefjord Torp airport) and no free parking. We'll... More

Not a modern chain hotel in any aspect but with very good and helpful service. This is a hotel situated in a charming old building with antique furniture and designs. Perfect choice if you like that! We certainly did. Conveniently situated in the center of Sandefjord. We were in our room, having parked our car and checked in, 15 minutes... More
