Excellent breakfast and beds, clean and good service, but dark interieur of bad taste

fantastic beds and excellent breakfast, quite dark rooms and furniture (mix from starwars aesthetics and jamesbond`s seventies, but worse), the sauna and gym o.k., lunch and dinner simple (not much to choose). The coffee and tea could be better. We were not informed that there was a renovation going on so that the building was packed in plastic...and it was loud in the morning. Nice personal, especially in the restaurant.

We use that hotel for a stopover to reach the ferry the next morning. location for this is ideal. within 5 mns drive you are at the ferry dock, so for the 8 am boat you can leave the hotel by 7:10- 7:20. butr back to the hotel. some parking lots in an underground garage directly next to the hotel - we were lucky to get one of the last ones. elevator from there to hotel defect / under construction. friendly staff at reception. elevator to second floor defect. no "can we help you with your luggage?". rooms nice (we had ours towards the open patio in the newer part of the hotel (rooms to the road might be noisier). disappointing: garbage bin in the bathroom was not cleaned up from previous stay, and minibar contained empty whine bottle. breakfast buffet was very good - unfortunately not eniugh time to enjoy it.

Comfortable rooms in a good location for the station

We stayed overnight here en route to Stavanger in the train. We had a warm welcome from the staff and our room was very comfortable and clean. The en suite bathroom has a nice shower but a rubber mat and a bathmat would be useful as it gets very slippery. The decor in reception is quite funky and we enjoyed a nightcap in the gold throne chairs. Lastly thanks to the staff for finding a taxi for us to the station. It was quite moist on the way!

Grey and great location

Whoever designed this hotel loves grey. And purple. Those are the two colors you will see everywhere. The location is very good: Smack downtown with the whole city core within easy walking distance. We were on a family trip, with my son and I sharing a room. We got lucky and unlucky. Lucky, in that our room had a nice balcony. Unlucky, in that we got a TINY room. The shower corner was maybe 60x60cm (2x2 feet), and with a construction that made it a squeeze to get in - even for the slim one! On our way up to the room (the lay-out of the hotel is a bit confusing), we saw the cleaning-team had put out an electric table-fan. We snagged it, as the hotel’s AC was struggling to cope with the excellent summer weather. That fan saved our sleep! Of course we left it in our room when we departed. Breakfast was OK. We just had the feeling that the scrambled eggs were one of those “powdered eggs plus water”-abominations. Both the texture and flavor were off to the wrong side side of “made from fresh eggs, all cracked by the cook this morning”. The rest of it was on the level. You won’t find Eggs Benedict here or anything super exciting - but you will find a perfectly normal and solid Norwegian breakfast. Apart from the scrambled eggs. People: Absolutely fine and they all did their jobs. That’s it: Great location, dull interior, rooms that have huge variations in size, and a breakfast that just needs proper scrambled eggs to be a-ok.

I was here on vacation (with 2 kids) to visit Kristiansand Zoo (Abra Havn). Staff is friendly. Hotel is centrally located with lots of options for restaurants. The room we stayed in was roomy and bigger than the rooms i have previously stayed in with family, so thumbs all the way up for that. Before i came i was told that the place have the best breakfast. I have to differ. It’s average but good. There is something missing that i can’t put my finger on. If you want to stay here for the best breakfast then you might get disappointed, but if you want a roomy family room and central location then i do suggest staying here. I don’t know if we got lucky or if all the rooms are this big. I have the hotel 3 stars because: - The breakfast is average - It costs kr 98 if we want breakfast to go - Expensive and cramped parking - Found a lock of hair in “newly washed” towel - Odd smelling towels
