Clarion Hotel Ernst, Kristiansand
This hotel is lovely! Incredibly convenient after exiting the ferry from Hirtshals to Kristiansand! We parked on the street right by the hotel for free (on weekend). The most amazing breakfast of our three week trip in Scandinavia. Highly recommend!!!!!

Convenient location
In Clarion style the room was incredibly dark and the main lamp didn’t work making it impossible to see properly. Some maintenance issues throughout the room. Breakfast starts at 6.30 but still setting up after 7. Convenient location to the city though and staff were polite.
