Prices go up if you book day by day. This is a hotel and not an airplane company, and there prices are like KLM prices, og you really like to, they want you to pay for it. Good breakfast if you eat meat and eggs. Still one of the better hostels in Kristiansand. Allmost

GoPlaces17013121920 Thank you for the feedback. We have dynamic rates here at the hotel. That mean the prices will vary from day to day and also during the day the prices will change. The prices is updated 5 times during the day. To stay at a hotel is often more expensive during mid week than during weekend. This is due to the demand in the market. For Kristiansand it is opposite during summer. Then the weekends is more busy and more expensive. So, it can be compared to an airline company like KLM or SAS. Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda

The room felt a bit cold for me and without any way to change the heat much. The heat did also reset each day if I got it any warmer (think it was standard to 20°c.Other than that great service and rooms as usually in Scandic hotels.

A wonderful stay with a splendid breakfast. A lot of nice food! Very fine hotel close to the beach. Parking beneath the hotel, but also possible in the streets close by. The reception hall was very big and inviting. I recommend the place.
