Payed for rom for 2adults and 2 children. when arriving ther was a smal rom with only three bed. Old rom and expensiv hotel. We was premisser upgrade rom and was dissepointed when we saw the rom. Expected more valse for money

Location couldn't be better, in the main street of the city center. The room has all the basic commodities and some extra ones that can be handy such as iron and iron-board, coffee machine, fridge.. this in the Queen Room option. The breakfast is acceptable, average, nothing extraordinary.

In the center of town, two minutes from bus and rail. It is also tree minutes from the ferry to Danmark. I live at the hotel every week, an can recomend it. The room is simple but nice. You have everithing you need in short distanse from the hotel.

Central hotel in the middle of Kristiansand. The photographs of the hotel lies. Not all rooms has been refurbished, and my room clearly hadn't. Not a big deal, but it was not what I expected. The cleanliness of the room could have been better. Old candy and dust under the bed, and spidewebs over the windows. My room had a view over a burned down building, and that's not the most beautiful view :) The service by the staff were as good as it gets. Really happy with the service! Friendly and helpful all the way!!! However, the restaurant (Egon) has extremely poor service. That's a minus. Not the hotels fault, but it is the hotels restaurant so I have to put that into consideration. In my honest opinion; You can find better hotels for the same price in Kristiansand.

Good location, good restaurant (Egon), rooms need a little tidying up, view from second floor not nice, looking to burned neigbor house and parking floor. Breakfast not as good as couple of Years ago.

It is the first time on Thon hotel Kristiansand. The staff was friendly and the location is very good, and very quiet . The bed was good and the room has a coffemaker :) . I rekomend it a lot . Anne Grete

My wife and me goes to Kristiansand regulary on just visit friends trip and we always stay at Thon Hotel Kristiansand and this times as usual excellent stay with food. Service and the personal way to give you service.

When I came to the hotel a very friendly receptionist helped me with everything I needed. She asked me which floor I would like to be on, and made it happen. Unfortunately, there was something wrong with (I believe) the air-condition that night, so my room had an awful smell. The receptionist, Stine, was very friendly and polite and helped me relocate to another room straight away. This is what I call good service! Other than that, the room was of good size and the bed was amazing to sleep in. The hotel is located in the middle of the city center, where everything you need, from shopping to food, is just outside the door. The train station, the ferry to Denmark and the bus to Kristiansand Zoo is just å short walk away from the hotel.

Good Hotel in the City Centre. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The hotel is Close to the Railway Station (to Oslo and Stavanger) and Ferry to Denmark (Color lines Superspeed taking 3h 15 min to Hirtshals).

When I checked in 2 days ago, the friendly desk clerk looked for a really good room to upgrade me to (I'm entitled to an upgrade as a platinum member of Discovery, when available). I got a superior room that was essentially a suite. It also had a huge balcony (not much use, though, since it's wintertime). Nice easy chair in the "parlour" area made TV watching a pleasure. The kingsize bed was top quality, and the light fixtures well placed and well thought out (not always the case in hotel rooms). Since I'm from the States, I appreciate ceiling lights as well as lampettes, and there were two in my suite. Great! Bathroom had a really nice shower room that didn't let any water escape into the room outside (not a matter of course at Norwegian hotels). There were two types of coffee machines, and packages of coffee and tea available. Bathroom was equipped with specialty shampoo and moisturizer. This is simply the bests accommodation I've ever had in a hotel in Norway. I enjoy staying at Thon hotels. They have hotels for people on a budget, for businessmen, etc. Different standards, in other words. But even in their budget hotels, I've always found their beds to be top notch, and after all, what good is a hotel room with amenities if the bed is lousy and you can't get a decent night's sleep? The staff in the reception were very, very friendly and helpful. I will definitely try to stay here again if/when I am ever back in Kristiansand.
