Unfortunately Thon Hotel Kristiansand was almost fully booked at the time of my stay, so I was not able to upgrade my room, and had to settle with a standard single bedroom on the second floor.
The room was recently renovated so the overall standard was good. However the room didn't have a good feeling. It felt very unorganized/unplanned, and the space could have been used much more beneficial. The TV was placed to the left of the bed, and felt unnatural watching from the bed. Also there was no AC outlet near the bed, which is really annoying. The single bed really was hard and uncomfortable, resulting in a bad nights sleep.
While checking in the staff was very helpful. Some other guests had some different problems and I noticed how the staff helped them with a smile on their faces.
The overall standard of the hotel is fresh and modern, but it still has that "budget hotel feeling".
The hotel restaurant is a connected Egon Restaurant. This I find incredibly boring and unimaginative. (IMHO finding a restaurang that is less priceworthy than Egon is a real challenge.) Luckily the good location of the hotel makes it easy finding something more eatable in the city center.
The breakfast selection was over my expectations, but sadly the breakfast was not fresh. I arrived at 08:30 and much of the breakfast was almost emptied, but not refilled, giving a bad impression. Also the vegetables was more than a couple of days old.
The price for this experience was 1049 NOK/night, which is a proper price for a hotel of this standard. They also offer parking for 150 NOK/night.
