9.5 Excellent
Pros: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As a result, we chose to stay at other Thon hotels in Norheimsund and Stavanger. The staff at all of them were extremely helpful and cheerful. They were available at all times and nothing seemed too much trouble. Thank you.
Cons: No criticisms.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We liked everything. The breakfast was delicious, the stuff very friendly and polite, the location is great and the decor is very unique(really liked the paintings they have all over the hotel).
Cons: We had to sleep with closed windows because the birds were very loud for some reason. Probably not much the hotel can do about it.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very god beds
Cons: Did not find my booking
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff at all times, both in the hotel and in the adjacent breakfast/restaurant location. Superb location with only 1 minute walk to be middle of town. Car parking was easy in, and the elevator took you there! The rooms was very new and clean. We had six rooms altogether.
Cons: Car parking prices was a on the wrong side of the scale.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Beds ok
Cons: Depressing room, too expensive, poor furniture and essentially the beds, window facing a wall Hotel impersonal and depressing Average breakfast External expensive parking After my husband did the check-out and put the luggage in the car, he stayed with our daughter and I went to the bathroom in the main lobby. The person from the reception desk run after me to forbid me to access the bathroom arguing that I’m no longer customer of the hotel The worst experience in Norway and overall
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is great. Right in a city center.
Cons: Lack of fridges in the rooms. No minibar.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The aparthotel was very central and newly renovated a year ago. Everything was fresh, clean and cheerful. The shower was larger than most Scandinavian shower stalls, so was very nice for a change. When I told the receptionist we needed to check out early at 5:30am the next morning, they offered to package a take away breakfast for us.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Hotel staff was great. Free breakfast was good and important since there's no kettle or minifridge in tbe room.
Cons: My original room on the second floor was... Off-putting. It was really small and felt like a closet. The window didn't even look out to anything, just piping in an enclosed alley. I got my room changed and that was much better. Try and get a room on a higher floor.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Room was good, a bit unpersonal bit it was clean, bed was good, and the service was very good
Cons: Unlike in the other Thon hotels I visited this hotel had a big super modern tv but it only had 5 channels and they were all in Norwegian. So for a hotel chain that is very international orientated this could be better
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Extremely welcoming and helpful staff that made the stay better than expected.

It had plenty of choice, both on food and drinks. The staff was friendly and efficient both on check in and checkout.

Cons: Parking was really expensive! Not special rate for hotel guests! Just for your info, if you purchase the ticket from the machine it’s 190nok/a day but by using EasyPark will be 220nok plus, else there is a cheaper parking bay next to the hotel, that would be sightless cheaper, 150nok...

7.5 Good
Pros: Décor a bit whacky. A bit more interesting than the typical hotel in the region
10.0 Excellent
Cons: The only problem was the early morning taxi. We were told to take the one outside, not across the street. Fine. Except another guest took what we assumed was our taxi so we did take the one across the street. Then another taxi arrived just as we were leaving and I think it was meant for us. A bit confusing! I think they might explain that we should give our room number to make sure we have the correct taxi.
9.5 Excellent

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location , the very varied breakfast.
Cons: Serving from dinner. The fish soup and the roast beef were brought to us in the same time . We ordered beef meat, we were not asked how we prefer cooked, but what bothered us most was that the potato garnish was brought to us in a single bowl, which means you had to share with your friend. .... one for you ...one for me ..........!!!, only the payment note was separate. At a 4-star hotel is not allowed to deal with such mistakes.

Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda - Kristiansand - Building
5
8.5 Excellent (1,099 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Take the family to Kristiansand – the children’s favourite! Stay in the middle of the popular and central Bystranda, and enjoy yourselves in the Aquarama water park which is right next door.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: A fabulous breakfast buffet - top class! - and yet I get disappointed at hotels that don't provide real tea cups. Drinking tea in a coffee cup just isn't right. So room for improvement there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the location.
Cons: I did not like the weather :)
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Excellent room
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great value, beautiful location, friendly staff, clean rooms, parking
7.5 Good
Pros: Sight view from hotel
5.8 Okay
Pros: The location was great, as it is near to almost all the important site in Kristiansand as well as the city square. The lobby (which we stayed in more than our rooms, you will know why when you read my review on what I did not like) is spacious and has many seating areas to hang out with friends and family. There is a parking garage secure under the building, but it’s managed by Aquarama which another company (this caused confusion read below)
Cons: Ok just to set the stage for my review. I was travelling with my wife and two kids. When we travel we usually stay in 5 star hostels or similar level of apartments or houses. However due to the lack of suitable options in that grade in Kristiansand we picked Scandic due to its location and the reviews we read about the area. I am not sure if it is a 3 start or 4 star, but even these two grades should have the minimum needs for family rooms. There was no kettle or any sort of items you usually see in such hotels. The milk we bought for our kids was ruined because there was no fridge in the rooms, and we I asked the Receptionest he informed that I can keep in in the reception as they have a small fridge!!! Although he thankfully was trying to be helpful, but I don’t believe anyone will leave their kids milk in a public fridge. The connected beds in both rooms were totally uncomfortable and the space between the two joints beds was not even covered with bedsheets. We felt sleeping in a bunker room. The other thing is the parking area under the hotels which is managed by Aqyarama the aqua park company. My ticket was couldn’t open the gate to get out of the parking and I had to go to another building to explain to them the case and took my more than 30 minutes to solve the problem. When I first went to the hotel reception they told me that it is not their responsibility and I should go and talk to Aquarama for this. It would have been much easier if there was a close coordination between the two for the benefit of the clients.
8.3 Excellent
Cons: Parking was not included in the price and adds an additional 30 Euros to the bill. Disappointing given that the price of a night in this hotel is everything else then a bargain.

Pros: Great view, delicious buffet at breakfast and dinner
Cons: Nothing

5.8 Okay
Pros: The hotel was clean and location was just near the railway station. Restaurants and bus station was within walking 5 min walking distance.
Cons: The size of the room allotted was quite small. I was travelling with my wife, mother in law and 3 month old baby ( along with a baby stroller) There was very little space to move around when 3 adult person was in the room. We tried to change our room but the hotel informed that they do not have any large family rooms available. If I would have been given this information during booking I would have chosen another hotel or accommodation for my stay in Kristiansand. Till date I have only had good experience with booking.com but now with a new born baby I will think twice before reserving a hotel on your website.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location near station and city centre. Rooms are simple (as you'd expect in a budget hotel) but functional and clean. Staff welcoming and helpful, also outside reception hours.
7.5 Good
Pros: The hotel is basic but comfortable and in an excellent location for the train station and ferry terminal, as well as local shops and restaurants. Absolutely fine for a one-night stay for one person. The check-in and check-out process was very easy and the staff were helpful and friendly.
Cons: The room was quite small and would probably be cramped with two people. There was also no hairdryer in the room, and with the reception only open for a limited time during the day it wasn't convenient to ask about the possibility of borrowing one at the time that I was showering.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location in Kristiansand city-centre, could walk everywhere we needed to go. Beds were surprisingly comfortable, Parking was convenient and easy to find. No complaints at all. We slept in so didn't get the chance to try breakfast but it was included.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The only good thing about this hotel was it was clean
Cons: Room - extremely basic. Reception closed at 9pm. When I arrived at 20.50 they told me i only have 10 minutes before their shop closed. I asked whether there was water in the room (as in bottled water) to which the receptionist replied yes. They had taken my question quite literally as the only water in the room was from the tap, so I wasn't able to get bottled water. They had overbooked the hotel so called me as I was boarding my plane to ask if I would move hotel. All restaurants in the area seem to close at about 9 or 10pm. Bed was extremely uncomfortable and there was an awful smell of fried food in my room. The breakfast selection was very basic. I was also told the morning after I had checked out that a few years ago the hotel closed down for a while as it was being used as a brothel.

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: It was a camping and caravan site with some cabins, there are other facilities like a pool but I just wanted to sleep, in a bed, which I was unable to do. I’m 63 and disabled, the first night the cabin had a bed that was on top of the bathroom with a ladder that I couldn’t climb. I slept on the sofa, very uncomfortable night with not much sleep. The second night, I was promised a better cabin, got there about 11pm, couldn’t find any light switches but found the bedroom in the dark. There were tho bunk beds, I can’t bend enough to get into a bunk bed. Went back to the reception hut and waited. Explained to the guy that I couldn’t use the cabin, all I wanted was a normal bed for the night that I could get in. He told me they had another cabin, the one I had stayed in the previous night and I could sleep on the sofa and they would give me a refund of 50%. I said I would be more comfortable in my car. Should have taken the 50% refund and not stayed ! I slept in my car with no refund. Cost me nearly £150 for nothing.

However it was a spacious room, great big bed, big TV and super for a stay to see Kristiansand
