Rica Hotel Norge Kristiansand Reviews
A nice hotel in the heart of town Aug 06, 2011
Hotel Norge Kristiansand is located in the very centre of Kristiansand, just one block from the pedestrian zone. It is not a member of the Rica Hotel chain, but they are a partner hotel. Good if you are collecting points.
Check in has always been very efficient and the staff is friendly and helpful. Every time I have stayed there I have felt very welcome.
I have unusual got rooms with a single bed. It´s small, but nice with a small sofa and a coffee table. Last time I stayed at Hotel Norge Kristiansand there was even a plant on the coffee table. It made it a bit homey. The rooms also have a desk, a TV, a mini bar and free WIFI with own laptop. There is also a guest PC in the library on the ground floor if you don´t have your own. Would have been nice with tea/coffee making facilities though. The lighting in the room is not very good, it is impossible to read in the evenings.
I guess the hotel tries to be eco friendly. They have a funny heating system in the rooms. The temperature is set to 20C/68F. During the night (9 pm – 6 am) it is automatically reduced to 17C/62F. You can adjust it +/- 3C in the room. If you wish a larger change you have to contact the reception.
The bathroom was medium sized, decorated with white tiles and marble and had a shower. It was a hairdryer there, but no other amenities. The lighting was good. .
Great breakfast was served in the Café Dronningen on the ground floor. Their homemade rolls, bread and pastry were fantastic. There was also a very good selection of fresh fruit, cold cut, and hot choices. The café is also open for lunch and dinner until 11 pm. The only negative thing about the breakfast happened last time I stayed there. I went down at 09:15 to enjoy a lovely breakfast, but could not get a table. It seemed like they had more guests than they could accommodate for breakfast. I was not happy!
There is a fitness room with a great view on the 8th floor. Coffee and tea is served free of charged in the lounge on the 8th floor between 7 – 10 pm. For the smokers, there are balconies on each floor where you can smoke.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Krisitansand I can recommend Hotel Norge Kristiansand.

Time to explore Kristiansand.|
After checking out of the hotel, i moved into some cheaper accomodation located at the other side of the train station. There was a 4 hour gap between the check-out time of Hotel Norge and the check-…Norge and the check-in time of Budget Hotel Kristiansand. Surprisingly though, the place is in lockdown before then…
