Radisson Blu Caledonien Hotel, Kristiansand, Kristiansand
No title
It was under renovation and this is difficult. Staff was great and cordial. Obviously the hotel needs some serious updating. It was generally clean. Rooms were nice and spacious but very tired. I like the chain and would stay there once every the renovation is complete.

Radisson Blu Caledonien Hotel, Kristiansand, Kristiansand
Very dated! Old furnishings. Very overpriced for the condition.

Best location
Friendly staff, very good location, Fair price and excellent breakfast
Michel, us1 night business trip
Radisson Blu Caledonien Hotel, Kristiansand, Kristiansand
Probably the best location in Southern Norway.
For Europe the hotel was roomy, the breakfast reasonable and plenty of amenities nearby, the problem, as in most continental hotels continues to be the price of overnight parking. While street parking is available, it's also expensive during daytime, but free on Sundays.
