Awful experience! This is not a hotel. People are clearly living here permanently. It felt like we was in an asylum seeker camp. There was noise and loud slamming with doors throughout the night, and at 06 in the morning children were running through the hall screaming in arabic. The room was dirty, i dropped my sheet on the floor...

Well, of course it's not the best hotel, but good enough for a short stay. The rooms are small, but the bathroom is prvate and clean, good. The beds move a lot and you can hear everything that is going on next to your room. Very nice terrace to chill with friends. The location is very good, next to party...

Everything is very basic, but, for a much lower price than in any other hotel in Kristiansand (possibly in all Norway!), I got a real room with a large bed and a private bathroom. The location is right in the centre, and surprisingly it is quiet at night. Late arrivals are easy, you get the keys from the gas station...

Dear Sébastien. Thank you so much for your kind review, I am glad to hear that you feel that we offer good value for the price. We change the code for the door every monday, so I guess that is why you noticed that we had changed the code. I am glad you had a nice stay in our hotel,...

This was the worst accommodation on the planet I have stayed in. I was even a Boy Scout once. Having to make my own bed with period / blood stains on the duvet. Strange straggly black hairs. Cracked bathroom sink and vanity unit. Paper thin walls the aroma of Chinese cooking wafting indelicately around the corridors. Basically a porter cabin...

Dear Barry P. I am sorry that our hotel did not meet your expectations. We take this kind of reviews very seriously and we always try to improve. I can guarantee you that the duvet was in fact clean, but some stains will not go away even if they are cleaned many times. If our cleaner had seen this she...

This is the only hotel I could find in Kristiansand (Norway) for less than 100 euros. At first I supposed that I would have to share the bathroom which I don’t like at all – but you don’t have to – each room has its private bathroom. The hotel is very basic but for the ratio price/quality in Norway it...

THe hotel is very central, just a 100m from the point where the ferries arrive from denmark. It is located between the train station, the ferry terminal and the highway, so dont expect a nice surrounding. It's probably the cheapest option in town, its fairly quiet and very clean, so go for it when your on a budget. The reception...
