Has all the basic needs, nothing wow, if your going for work, perfect centrally located, and it has very friendly staff, and a good restaurant where the hotel breakfast is served too. I wouldnt stay here if it was on holiday or with 2 - 3 people, as the rooms are quite small

Stayed at the hotel for a few nights in July while visiting Kristiansand and Dyreparken. The location is superb, very central if you want to explore the city of Kristiansand. It is in the middle of the shopping district with lots of cafes and restaurants right outside the door. Parking is a hassle, it´s either street parking or parking spaces... More

Excellent location to train station - 2 blocks away. The city is laid out in a grid pattern and is so walkable. You can walk to all of the major sites in the city center: The Cathedral; the harbor; the old, downtown center. We spent one night and day passing through on our way to Mandal to see family.

When I was there I wanted to upgrade my room from combi room to a Superior Room (very comfortable) and it was so easy, paid a little extra and the receptionist was so smiling and pleasant. The bed was so comfortable and I would absolutely recommend this hotel.The hotel lies in the shopping street with several restaurants and pubs.
