Bodo, Norway
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Attended a conference at this Hotel. Big, clean rooms, with very good beds, excellent breakfast (although a couple of Scandic Hotels in Norway with even better breakfast), excellent location in the middel of the centre of town, by the town beach. I didn't use the aquarama training and swimming facilities.

Very good value for the money. A relatively new hotel with a fantastic view over the city beach and harbour, and only a few minutes walk from downtown. Clean rooms and a friendly staff. Free wifi and a very good breakfast. Perfect for both work and leisure/family stay. And not to forget the gym and SPA.

The room was excellent, clean, silent and the personnel very friendly. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of Kristiansand. Was not able to enjoy the breakfast due to an early flight departure.

A modern hotel, quite centrally located in Kristiansand. The room was a good size, with a double bed, and two bunk-beds, that were cleverly hidden. The bed was comfortable, the staff were friendly and the selection at breakfast was very nice.
