“Second place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

we were booked in to the Hotel Astoria. It smelled very strongly of fried food, and to our discreet pleasure it had muddled our booking and sent us to try the Kristiansund hotel - the closest.
The Kristiansund was much nicer. Got us organised very quickly into two delightful rooms overlooking the sound itself.
Breakfast next day was a typical Norwegian Continental breakfast. Pickled fish, sausage, cheese, hard and soft boiled eggs, crispbread, coffee and tea.
They also had a waffle machine (I'd thought waffles were Belgian), with which we set off the fire alarm. Sorry.

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the sound

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

I have stayed in 4 of Kristiansund's hotels in the last 7 years. I have stayed in one - once; another (the biggest - once); another big one - twice; and the Hotel Kristiansund about 8 times!

That says it all.

It may not be the most plush, it may not be the one with the best breakfast, but it has a friendly service that is second to none!
The staff and owners all work so hard and are so friendly.
Always a smile, complimentary coffee, and often complimentary waffles on a cold Norwegian day!

I will always go back there!

Very small single rooms, I have never seen hotel room smaller. Living area is about 7m2, although it is very clean, noise resistance is good and WiFi included already in the price. Breakfast is average Scandinavian: eggs, ham, yogurts, tea, coffee, juices,cheese, sausages. Price per single room is about 700 krones which is cheap in Norway. Free coffee and snacks in little lobby. Not bad in general.

Good location by the river.
Room was big and with a flat screen. It was nice but a little out-dated. Supposely with a great view, that we could not see since there was a big boat right outside the window and the boat worked all night. The bathroom was clean but had a funny smell and the flush was not working properly.
The best thing about the hotel was the breakfast buffet, lost of different and tasty things.

Stayed here August 2011 with colleagues for business on an overnighter.

Hotel was friendly, check in was fast and pleasant. The staff seemd happy and able to answer all our questions.

We had a very nice Norweigian buffet immediately which was varied and of a good standard. Especially the pudding, which was excellent.

The rooms ( review of a single ) were small but in good condition.

Wireless internet was OK speed and free.

Breakfast was also a buffet and to a good standard.

The only complaint would be that the supermarket next door seemed to have some very early and noisy deliveries !!!

Location was good for central Kristiansund - not that there's anything there anyway !

This is a small family-run hotel facing the main water route of the city where the ferryboat passes til midnight. Nice view on the water & moutainside.

The room is very small, old fashioned and a bit used. The wardrobe is clearly a second-hand stuff and looks odd. Based on our Rainbow hotel experiences, it seems to be the standard (most hotels are built in the 1970's and have never been refurbished since). We had diner at the Rica Hotel next door, it seems to be much more modern and confortable (for the same price).

Front desk staff was very nice and gave us all the necessary information. However, the nightkeeper stayed all the time at the karaok with his friends, chatting and smoking.

Breakfast was generous and above average.
