Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda, Kristiansand
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!

Good hotel for a weekend trip
We had a nice stay in a spacious clean room, and enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Bedding (pillow and comforter) could have been of a better, softer quality though.

Great hotel. Beware if sporting event on (as we experienced) for a couple of days the hotel was taken over and breakfast (food was good) was not particularly pleasant.
