Reviewed 16 November 2009

What a great experience this was. Friendly staff, ready to answer all your questions 24/7, nice and clean rooms and a very nice conference room attached. If you even consider having a board meeting in a nice and cosy environment, this is your recommendation.

Stayed in Kong Carl for one night with my parents and 22 year old sister. Kong Carl is located centrally in Sandefjord and an easy 5-10 minute walk from the train station - as well as everything in Sandefjord. The hotel had a cozy feel, and staff were very accommodating and friendly. Our room was large with a pull out sofa bed and two twin beds. It did get a little hot during the night but it was a warm afternoon. We also loved relaxing on the front and back patios in the afternoon.

We spent two nights with a group of 21 people travelling from Ireland to Sandefjord and we were pleasently surprised to find this cosy and homely hotel in the centre of the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful and extended the type of service you would expect from any top range hotels. If we were to go back, we would definitely stay there again.

Kong Carl was a great hotel. We only spent a single night there as a stop over on our way to Gaustablikk (the highest peak in southern Norway) and it proved to be just right. It looks really cozy from the outside and the inside is just as good. The room was large and comfortable with a nice bed. The reception staff were very good to us and they served a nice breakfast before we left.

After a previous stay (5 yrs ago) I was left with the feeling of Kong Carl being a bit dated, however after the refurbishment this hotel now is excellent value. Simple yet stylish rooms. Really liked the breakfast and plus for free wireless internet in room. Hotel is part of "Historical Hotels", and the owner knows all there is to know about this former whaling capital. Would definitely stay there again.

A cool, old hotel with soul in mid-town Sandefjord. My job makes me travel a lot, so I have many nights in different hotels both in Norway and Europe. Hotel Kong Carl has improved a lot since my first stay (2007), and has become my favourite in Vestfold! Nice white wooden house, friendly staff, cool (and clean) rooms combined with good food makes me suggest that you should give it a try. You will not regret :-)

If you somehow decide to make this former whaling-town your destination, this hotel is most recommendable. Situated right in the centre of town, the hotel is somewhat small, but very cosy. Rooms were medium-size and clean. Good buffet breakfast. Parking available (at 75NOK) in the hotel parking lot.

If you are not offended by it, see the authentic whaling-boat at the harbour, or check out the 'Promenade cafe', for a concert or just to grab a beer.
