Reviewed 19 May 2014

This hotel is wonderfully charming and in a fabulous location. Its in a very old building, so all the rooms are different, but thats part of the charm. The rooms are a bit small by US standards, but have plenty of room. Because it is an old hotel, keep in mind there aren't elevators, so be ready for stairs. The staff is very friendly and helpful and provide great touches like delicious waffles every evening and great coffee is available all day. The included breakfast is very good as well, and the in room coffee is the absolute best I've had in any hotel, ever! Would gladly stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Be sure to specify the size of bed you'd like as some rooms have a single or a double in them.

The staff at hotel Wergeland is the most service minded and caring that I have experienced in Norway. Strongly recommend this hotel. Me and my co-workers had a great experience, receiving help caring up bags to the top floor.

Great location, just steps away from Krisitansand`s mainstreet Markensgate. However at the moment there are excavators and some building going on in the street which the hotel faces, so it is a bit difficult to enter. We were there in the weekend, and was not disturbed by noice from this. However if it is still going on when you arrive here, ask for a room not facing the street.
Very warm welcome, free waffles and coffe beeing served just as we arrived. From other reviews I read there are redecorated rooms, whereas the one we stayed in was not. Disliked the old brown carpet which did not look clean any more and the shower curtain. Except from that it was okay for what we paid. If you plan to spend much time inside there, you might find it a bit on the small side. A plus for coffee machine which even made drinkable espresso.
The breakfast was a highlight! Great choice of bread, also some pastries and croissants, lots of fruit, cereal, cheeses, eggs ....whatever you would fancy for breakfast. The most important national and local papers available

Room Tip: At the moment (Sept 2013) - ask for a quiet room (excavators in the street) Obviously at the time b...

I arrived in Kristiansand too late to catch a ferry to Denmark. I wound up staying at this hotel for the night. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! Not only that, I was leaving before breakfast and so the staff left a take away breakfast for me upon my checkout! Very thoughtful! The hotel is very clean and in an excellent location. I gave the rooms a three because they are a bit small. Also a little lower for the value, mostly because I think ALL hotels in Norway are ridiculously overpriced. I would definitely stay here again and I recommend this hotel to others.

The Hotel is well located, with a pleasant atmosphere and a very nice Norwegian breakfast!
Reception is warm and the internet (free) is quite good.
On the other hand, my room was small as well as the bathroom, but you get what you paid for...

After reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor, I was a tiny bit "worried" coming here. But after arriving very late (the reception was closed, but was soon manned), we had a friendly and professional welcome. I had a large room on the third floor, with a rather small bathroom - but it was really ok. I liked the touch of the welcoming pillows - and the espresso machine. We had an early start, but the breakfast was amble - and good. I have stayed at other hotels in Kristiansand, but this is really ok - and value for money.

Room Tip: There is no lift, so be aware if you'll be needing that.

Thon Hotel Wergeland is located very close to the pedestrian/shopping street, so the location is perfect for a weekend getaway,for shopping, dining, and just walking around in this beautiful city. The room was great, with a huge bathroom, and also an espresso machine in the room. Nice touch! The restaurant at the hotel was closed for the summer ( weird, since Kristiansand is buzzing with tourists in the summer) but since its so close to Markens Gate, you can find a lot of restaurants very close by. The breakfast had everything you expect to find, nothing more nothing less. The staff was very helpful,and friendly. All in all we had a very great stay at this hotel.
