It's nice to see a place where the service is top notch without the use of Swedish staff. We called relatively late and got a good price. The receptionist even moved his car so we could park (even on staff parking). We asked for a cheep room, a single room with a bigger bed as we were traveling on budget,... More

Stayed for 2 night on business. Had heard different stories about the hotel. But was pleasantly surprised of how modern the room was. But i saw my colleagues rooms that were of the older style. I guess i got lucky. The staircases and hall ways are old and quiet. Only the squeeking from the floors and doors making it a... More

The hotel and staff were excellent. This will be my goto hotel with any future visits to Norway. We are a 4-star luxury hotel family and we rank this hotel along those lines. The hotel is very old and excellent to explore. My 8yo had a blast seeing which rooms she could find and explore in. Pictures on the walls... More

We got a big room in the annex beside the parking lot, but It was quiet. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious, breakfast items with many choices that were pleasingly displayed. It's a nice area to walk.

Visited in May 2012 and it was lovely, well located, friendly staff. We were in one of the rooms in the annexe beside the parking lot but had no problems with noise. It's a lovely area to just walk around too. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and a wide range of options too. Only reason not a 5 star... More

I have been staying here for some days or a week for 19 years every year. The hotel has developed to a much better hotel in these years. The new owners has continued the reconstruction of this old hotel. Their historical rooms are very nice. They have a simpel but nice breakfast. Why book a room in a concrete building... More

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!
