I stayed at Radisson Blu Caledonien multiple times before. This is my 7th stay here. I just moved to Kristiansand as an expat and to be able to earn Club Carlson points, I chose Radisson Blu as my temporary lodging during 27 days. As I was a gold member, a smiley receptionist upgraded me from a business class room that I booked to a suite. I was welcomed by a plate of exotic fruits in the middle of Norway cold and that was really awesome!! Every morning, My room was cleaned very carefully. I love the bath robes they provide, which is a luxury that most other hotels in Kristiansand does not give. Additionally, hotel has special events such as ballroom events, Stand up shows, concerts and a piano bar. Actually hotel's lobby bar is known as one of the best places to hang out on Saturday nights. Many people from all around the town were coming to the event room at the second floor dressed up and looking good. All I had to do was to take the elevator from my suite down to the event room and have fun. It is a great hotel. the only disadvantage is the rooms and the furniture are extremely old. Kristiansand has a 2 brand new hotels: 1 Scandic and 1 Clarion. But the rooms at Radisson are much bigger than those. The elevator is extremely noisy though at Radisson. that was the only down side for me. I strongly recommend anybody to stay at this hotel.
