“So convenient to the ferry!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We (myself, my husband, our 11 yr old granddaughter) stayed in this hotel twice in 2011, once on Aug 19 when we arrived from Denmark & again on Sept 1 when we were leaving Norway to return Denmark. I had also stayed there in Aug 2007. Whoa...I didn't even recognize the hotel this time -- in 2007 the entrance had been on a different street & its decor had been much more traditional. The check-in at the new Reception area was still efficient. For a fee, we were able to park our rental car in their garage.

Our 3rd floor room was not a large room, but it was very clean & new looking -- & very modern. There was a comfortable double bed for us & a bunk bed (which was down but I think may actually be a pull-down from the wall) for our granddaughter. The bathroom was a large, sparkling clean one. The floor was a modern wood style.

Breakfast in the main floor/lobby Breakfast Room was good -- with the usual meat, cheese, bread & fruit. We ate dinner at a pleasant jazz/pizza restaurant -- Jonas B Gundersen near the town square (however, if you're thinking "inexpensive pizza meal" - you're wrong; this is Norway, & very few meals are inexpensive. Nothing against it - it's just a fact).

Best of all, this reasonably priced hotel is just a short walking distance to the ferry to/from Denmark.

The hotel is situated in the middle of Kristiansand only steps from the pedestrian street Markens. I was upgraded to a great and spacious room at the top floor. The room was large with a spacious and clean bathroom, with both bathtub and a shower. The breakfast is nice with a varied selection of pastry, bread, cereals, eggs and so on. The staff however seemed to have great difficulties keeping the breakfast area nice and tidy. As a guest at this hotel you are able to park your car in the parking area for only NOK 150 per night. All in all a nice hotel offering good value for money.




Room Tip: Dont miss the breakfast......its great !

I have just checked out, one night, work, double room single, nok 991.
The hotel is ok, fresh, good size room, bathroom with shower, no glasses provided.
Breakfast is good with a wide variety of food, fruits etc. No teacups.
What i particularly liked was the tv in the room, excellent widescreen and HD-signals for all channels.

As in most Norwegian hotels service staff is at a minimum. There are no bar services and no minibar in the room.

New and nice rooms. The shower was the best ever. Good breakfast with salmon and scrambled eggs.The hotel is placed in the center of the city. Nearby train&bus station. Shopping street just around the corner. Egon(restaurant) perfect for family or just couples nearby.

Stayed here last year just for 2 nights and were so pleased we chose this hotel. We had been to stavanger and had a not very nice hotel and were a bit worried but this was a little gem. Its location was right in the centre on the main street area, right near 2 chinese restaurants and a steakhouse opposite. What more could you ask !!
the room had lovely polished floors, scandinavian style bed and a nice light airey feel.
breakfast was 100/10. really so good. When we were in it was full of every nationality under the sun, all asking for things not on the menu and the lovely girls seemed to be helping everyone. we sat with some americans who had pancakes and maple syrup, and asked for eggs benedict and got them !! and germans on the other side who had huge plates of ham and eggs. One of the best breakfasts if not the best in Norway. Oh and by the way, for being in town we didnt hear a sound. Well done comfort hotel.
This is a great hotel and such good value for money.

Me and my family stayed for one night in May, and we were thrilled with the service.
Perfect location, stylish design, great breakfast and excellent staff made our stay best ever.
The staff was very friendly and check-in went smoth. Breakfast was served in the restaurant in the lobby, and was excellent. The whole family enjoyed spending time in the fitness-room (4 floor) and we appreciated the design and functionality.
Comfort Hotel Kristiansand is value for money in practice. It is a superb hotel, and I recommend it to everyone!

Stayed at the hotel, initial view was excellent, very modern theme, very clean etc. The rooms are spaciouse and clean and the breakfast and 24hr coffe and tea in the lobby are great.
What lets this hotel down is the service, put in in one word lousy. The desk people although polite are slow and lazy to get off their bums from the office behind the desk. Maid service is a joke, turning up at my room at 5PM, after having done a days work is not on. When the room is supposedly cleaned the towels are not changed (5 days), paper cups that were on the side left (I know my fault) Plastic cup not changed. nothing wiped just the bed made up.
THe laundry service is expensive but hey this is Norway, but first you have to find a bag and labels at reception if they have any, I ended up using a carrier bag and a post it note.
Finally breakfast, fair due given here the food is excellent but again they let themselves down in the staff department. If you are working and want to have breakfast at 6.30 promptly then forget it. One poor girl working her heart out to make the food, and lay out everything is not enough. The breakfast was allways late by 5 mins or so. I know this is not a lot but in a busy lifesyle 5 mins is preciouse time.
So to sum it up, in Kristiansand where I have stayed in 5 different hotels, this is value for money, just a shame about the low number of staff and maid service.
