Good location, refurbished, modern and clean decor. Smiling and welcoming reception all in all a good experience. BUT- I would likely have given a 3,5 if possible and let me tell you why. When you stay at a hotel and the criteria above are met were can you impress me? The breakfa

I've stayed here for almost two weeks now. It's a brand new hotel, with potential to become a good hotel, but at present, it isn't good enough, at least compared to the price demanded.

Rooms very simple, only three coat hangers in a double room and nowhere to put clothes. Bathro

We stayed here one night on our Norway trip and enjoyed the fact that it had been newly refurbished. However there was no safe,fridge, tea and coffee facilities in the room which to us seemed too minimalist!
Eat in the Restuarant attached which was very good and we had an excelle

Dear kevind281050 Thank you very much for your positiv feedback. I am very pleased that you took your time to give us this review on Tripadvisor. We have put a lot of effort in designing a bedroom where the quality of sleep is ou main focus. For this reason we have chosen to put the mini kiosk in the corridor. Here you can get both coffee,tea, hot chocolate and snacks. I am happy to read that you enjoyed the breakfast and the Food in Torvet Bistro. We are looking very much forward to welcoming you back in the future. Let us know if there´s anything we can do for you in the future. Best wishes, Kristine Ravnevand

Dear Misternorway, First thank you for staying With us during your time here in Kristiansand attending Sørcup 2018. I am very sorry the read that you had a negative experience with the parking under the hotel. Since we are are newly opened hotel there are things that we can improve. One thing is the parkeringsystem and how this booking system i handeled. I will take this further how to make sure that when a guest has reserved EV card that you are guarenteed to get it. This I can promise you is at our highest priority. We are very pleased to be able to give our guests this location in the city center. We are privileged that mostpart of our rooms are located in the building facing Torv kvartalet, which will provide the guests quiet loacation. We also have rooms facing the street as I understand you stayed in. I can see that theese deliverys of grocerys can be a problem for our guests. I will see what we can do about this, maybe ask to move this delivery a little bit. I will promise to at least talk to them. I hope you enjoyed your stay with us, and that we will be able to welcome you back another time. Best regards Kristine Obling Ravnevand General Manager Thon Hotel Parken

In the search for a central hotel in Kristiansand we found this brand new hotel. While not all floors are finished yet and the staff is being trained, our experience was good. The room is large enough and the lighting behind the bed is modern and nice.
