Nice hotel for family or business trip
Amazin hotel will modern design. Location about 1km to central shopping area. But only 50 meter to beach. Breakfast is awesome.

Great if you are not driving.
Great location, right on the water, within a ten minute walk to Kristiansand old town, where shops and restaurants located. Room was somewhat spartan. Excellent breakfast buffet. Parking not provided by hotel but was convenient although expensive (220 kroners or about $26 per night).

family friendly andlocation, location, location!!
One night stay on our drive between Oslo and Stavanger! Incredible location- on the beach and marina. Family friendly with lots of activities in the hotel and near by. Car parking ( for fee) was easy and convenient - underground with just a short ride up to reception desk. Inside the hotel, families took advatange of the cozy sitting/play areas. Our room had a great view of the marina and beach- comfy bed and wonderful shower ( lots of hot water and great water pressure). As with all Scandic hotel... delicious, beautifully presented, breakfast!!! Just outside the hotel you have the beach- boardwalk area. Playgrounds, climbing structures, volleyball, in ground trampolines ping pong tables and more! We walked the boardwalk to where the cruise ships come in- there you have access a museum area and lots of resauarants and much more. a very short walking distance you are in the charming city center with great shopping. restaurants and activities, we only had time to stay one night, I could easily have stayed a week or more!

Recommended hotel in Kristiansand
Great hotel - location was excellent and staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast buffet was amazing and we enjoyed the comfortable lobby lounge to have a drink after dinner. Room was comfortable and clean. Only difficulty was getting the AC/fan to run. It is programmed to only run if the windows are all closed and locked! But it was a great stay there and we'd go back!
