    « Affordable option »

    We stayed here while attending the Troll Cup of handball where my son participated. This was the affordable option without going really cheap. The hotel is old but well kept, clean and reception people gave us good service. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. No complains for our short stay.

    « Don't book the single room, very small bed. »

    I stayed here one night for business, but had booked a single room and the bed was tiny. That a side, it was a comfortable room with a huge tv, which was nice. Ice machine on each floor. Free parking on the street, couldn't find a space and had to pay 180 NOK for overnight parking, but in the hotels own secure parking lot, which was fine. Great location, close to everything in Kristiansand downtown. Breakfast was nice and offered lots of warm food.

    « Nice hotel, but no WIFI and urine in the toilette »

    + Nice room + Almost quiet room ++ Good breakfast + Price is okay (for Norway) - WLAN only for Telenor customers. -- Urine in the toilette, when we arrived (and the room was smelling of it) (Except of that, everything was very clean!)

    « Central location, good breakfast, sometimes noisy and crowded »

    Stayed here for three nights on a business trip. The rooms towards the street can be noisy at times. Breakfast buffet is quite good but can be very crowded. Very convenient location in central downtown right at the airport bus stop and close to the ferry terminal.

    « A hotel right on the spot! »

    The hotel is situated on Dronningens gate right in the city so you have walking distance to everything in town, for exampel "Fiskebrygga"the fishmarket and also other restaurants and bars och Marknadsgate.The rooms are ordinary but the wall.to-wall carpet has to be exchange. It smells old in the room. We had a nice view towards the sea. The receptionists were serviceminded and check in and out was fast. You will find a parkingplace at a gasoline station 150 meters from the hotel. On the 6th floor there is a nice livingroom. We played cards there in the evening. Suddenly 25 members of the Hells Angels from Sweden came in and had a party on the balcony outside.At midnight they came and asked us if we liked Norway lobsters. Of course we said and then they gived us 25 lobsters, bread and aiole. Quite an experience!! At midnight they came in and asked us if we liked

    « Misfornøyd »

    I slept here for one night as a layover during travel. Arrived late friday night and checked in. There was so much noise from the drinking joint right outside my window and I involuntarily had to listen to an entire concert by a bad cover band. Even if I closed the windows, the bass and music could be heard very clearly. The noise kept going until 3AM. Outside the window, there was a lot of balconies from other hotel rooms. There were afterparties on the one above and below my room with cigarette smoke and yelling coming through my window. The next morning at checkout I wanted to ask some questions, but as I paid, a security guard interrupted the receptionist for a couple of minutes. As the security guad was done asking questions, the receptionist went straight for the next customer in line without letting me ask my questions. Overall also a old and outdated hotel. Not worth the money compared to the alternatives.

    « Good location, decent hotel »

    This hotel is located very centrally in Kristiansand, and it's a good choice for any traveler looking for a decent place to stay without any frills. A big plus is the breakfast buffet: excellent choice of many baked and fresh products.

    « Nothing wrong, just not exactly my taste however the shower was amazing! »

    I have been to Kristiansand 4 times and the people and place never fails to ensure I have a great time. This time we were in Kristiansand for Palmesus Festival and were being treated, and rather spoilt, by a friend. We had an amazing weekend in Kristiansand as alway, but this time was rather special. With regard to the hotel; the location is excellent, near a car park, very close to a couple of great restaurants (Kick and Food Asylum) and very close to the town centre. The service was polite and fast, the entrance is understated but full of quality. However, the rooms are rather old fashioned in style, but that is the only thing wrong with this hotel. The rooms were warm comfortable and clean. The free internet was quick, however with regard to other facilities, we didnt use any. The room we had overlooked the parking lot on the back of the building, so the view was, er ugly! However this was a base for a festival and party and for us its location and facilities were ideal. thanks for the sweet dreams!

    « Very good service »

    The hotel is located in the centre of the city. The hotel is not the newest nor the fanciest in town but the standard is acceptable and the service and hospitality is impeccable. This hotel is a safe choice.

    « A very good normal hotel »

    Excellent beds, very nice with sofa in the room. Typical Norwegian hotel breakfast with very good bread and various types of food. Only problem was a very noisy bathroom door, but I guess they give it a few drops of oil. Hotel in the city centre and room 614 faced the street, so some noise, but not that much.

    « Convenient Hotel in Kristiansand »

    We stayed for a night in June. We called the hotel in advance and ordered a parking spot for NOK 180 in their backyard. The hotel is centrally situated and is close to all major atractions in Kristiansand. Check in/out was smooth. The room we got was on the 4th floor facing a night club, so during the night we could hear loud music, but it is how it is when you stay in the centre of city. The room was clean and spacious enough. Bathroom and the room interier was a bit dated, but completely fine. The breakfast starting on Sunday at 8 am was in somer room, not covering capacity of the coming guests. Maybe if the breakfast started a bit earlier, it would not be problem with guests waiting to be seated. All in all, the hotel was fine, but nothing special where I would return.

    « Located in the city center »

    Nice and clean room. Some traffic and "city" noice outside hotell. We had a special arranged breakfast 4.30 in the morning which was ok. Service was good although there was som issues with our groups booking as the hotel had not used the updated room list we sent. Looked to be some reconstruction work going on at the time of our visit.

    A nice hotel perfect located in the beautifull town Kristiansand. The staff I was in contact with, vere friendly and helpfull. The roms are clean and bed is nice. Not the newest interior, but nice kept. Breakfast is average, but have all you need for a good start. Would I stay here again? Yes I would :)

    « Good hotel and location »

    Stayed at Hotel Norge for 1 week due to business. The hotel is ok, but it looks it age and should be refurbished. At the moment they refurbished the restaurant, so I guess they have a project going on. The rooms was clean and tidy and the bed was great, but you can hear your neighbours. The view was not the greatest, but I didn't stay at the room for the view. There was no kettle and instant coffee in the room, so you need to go down to the restaurant to get your coffee. The breakfast is the best one in the city, with several hot and cold dishes. The location is in the middle of the city and it is short way down to the keyside and the fantastic location with the old houses. Can highly recommend the hotel and the only thing giving it a lower rating, is the worn rooms.
