Stayed at the hotel for a few nights in July while visiting Kristiansand and Dyreparken. The location is superb, very central if you want to explore the city of Kristiansand. It is in the middle of the shopping district with lots of cafes and restaurants right outside the door. Parking is a hassle, it´s either street parking or parking spaces...

This is cannot be better located if you want to stay in the centre of Kristiansand. Step out of the hotel and you are in the main pedestrian/shopping street. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Check-in was efficient and nice, which was good. Room was fair, with tiny shower area. Most disappointing was that there were no regular tea/coffee facilities in the room!!! There was a branded 'Senseo' machine in which one could put in some capsules and get coffee. Very low standard and quite disappointing. There was no option for regular good old coffee...

Excellent location to train station - 2 blocks away. The city is laid out in a grid pattern and is so walkable. You can walk to all of the major sites in the city center: The Cathedral; the harbor; the old, downtown center. We spent one night and day passing through on our way to Mandal to see family.

When I was there I wanted to upgrade my room from combi room to a Superior Room (very comfortable) and it was so easy, paid a little extra and the receptionist was so smiling and pleasant. The bed was so comfortable and I would absolutely recommend this hotel.The hotel lies in the shopping street with several restaurants and pubs.

Dear Trickmouse I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy Your stay. Several rooms are "Handicap friendly" but are also used by guests without any particular need for the extra facilities.
