Kristiansand, Norway

A room larger than industry standard. Dark color setting and almost absence of light of you need to work or read. The room display strong signs of ware and tear. Needs to be refreshed shortly to live up to a 5 star standard.

Room with a good size, nice shower. Breakfast ok, not excellent. Location near sentral part of town, and near public transportation. Quality of the bed very satisfying. Some difficulty to understand how to regulate light in the room

OK but not amazing. Stayed here twice previously. Last time was over a year ago. Rooms starting to look a bit tired. Design-wise OK- but tiniest shower ever. Needs a real gym or alternate access to one locally. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent.

We booked 4 nights in this 5 stars hotel, we waited 15 minutes before getting the room as there were a computer issue. Then, when we arrived in our room, the TV remote did not work, so we tried to call the front desk however the phone did not work either. So i had to go down until the reception...

Stayed 2 days, excellent service, good clean room, very modernist design. Bathroom on the small side but did the job and nice under floor heating. Even did a take away breakfast as we caught an early train to Bergen. Central location most recommended!

We were sceptical after reading some negative reviews but our experience of the hotel could not have been better from check in to check out. The hotel is modern and "quirky" in its design and the location is excellent. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The rooms are functional and very clean and the bed is one of the...

I have been on a business trip and the location couldn't have been better - it's very central and easy to get to. However the rooms leave much to be desired: you can see that they attempted to create a 'design' boutique hotel, but this design is not very well thought through. The bathrooms are VERY dark - there's almost...

We stayed for 3 nights over Dec/Jan period. Hotel is handy to city centre and great coffee shop across the road. Good buffet breakfast. We thought our room was on the small side, and the bathroom tiny. The shower was impossibly small, even my wife at 5' 7'' had difficulty in the shower if she dropped something.
