Excellent location for business with the local area, Out of the choices available its excellent value for money, clean rooms, speedy wifi. my only qualm was the size of the beds. The reception staff were very helpful when i was trying to arrange taxi's etc so don't worry about asking for a little help.

Radisson Blu Caledonien Hotel in Kristiansand Norway is a nice business hotel within a short walking distance to the town center and a small fishing harbor by the North Sea. You will also find the beautiful Concert Hall just around the corner from the harbor.
The price is reasonable for Norwegian standards, rooms are clean, bed is okay and the staff was attentive.
The restaurant in the hotel has excellent food (a little expensive) but even better is a walk to the harbor where you will find many specialty restaurants, from fish to steak to pizza.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor.

The Amenities of the hotel is like any Radisson Ble, with a nice restaurant and near the city centre. It is just a minute walk to the city centre and also there are many restaurants in front of the hotel.

Some of them has very good Fish dishes and should be tried.

Overall Very Good

The hotel is expensive. It has slow internet. There is no place to store clothes like socks or shorts, only a small closet to hang up shirts and pants. The shower is horrible and sprayed less than 5 inches / 127mm. the mattress is nothing more than a small 2" / 50 mm thick pad with no top sheet and a comforter that does not cover the entire bed. The heater is blocked by the curtains and the room is freezing. Stay somewhere else.
