Best Western Plus Hotel Norge
Ranked #8 of 19 Hotels in Kristiansand
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Reviews for this property range widely. I found it to be comfortable, a little noisy when the bars ejected customers at 0100 but not excessively so. The shower unit is tiny - hardly room to turn around, but the water is hot - which is arguably more important. Perhaps this is just Scandinavian minimalism? The bed was comfortable, the Internet acceptable. Breakfast excellent. Location very central. Price - rather high - NOK924 for a standard room.

Room Tip: Higher floors will have better views. and be quieter, but you will pay more

Average hotel for business travelers. Very good breakfast. Laundry costs you more than buying new clothes. Sunday breakfast closes too early, promise to cater coffe at lounge in 8th floor every day at 7pm but they do not at least on Sunday, phone voicemail doesn't work... Quiet and comfortable but aging and nothing fancy.

Dear Maravalj,

Thank you for your positive feedback.

We use a company outside the hotel for the dry cleaning service and in Norway this is quiet expensive. However the hotel offers a laundry service where you pay 75 NOK to wash and dry your clothes yourself. This is located in the 7th floor.

We are happy that you enjoyed most of your stay with us and hope to welcome you again in the future.

Best regards

Stayed here for one night in June, and had a superior room on the higher floors. The room was very nice and spacious with good facilities. Very friendly staff. We ate a great dinner in the restaurant Dronningen Cafe. The breakfast room (Dronningen cafe also served as breakfast room) was absolutely packed when we came to breakfast, but still the trays were filled and the staff seemed to be very effective. The hotel is perfectly located in the middle of Kristiansand. I would recommend a stay here!

Fantastic location, friendly welcoming staff, great place to stay in Kristiansand!

We stayed two nights, and found the hotel to be clean and comfortable, with an excellent power shower in the bathroom. The location couldn't be better, right across the road from the excellent Kick Cafe!

I only stayed there for a night, but I was very pleased with the room and the service. The reception staff was very kind and helpful. The hotel is well placed. The breakfast was ok and reasonably priced. It is hard to say if the price per night is reasonable, because Everything seems very expensive in Norway. All in all, a pleasant experience.
