Old but with a staff that makes your stay worth spending your time here. I´m here often and it feels like coming home. The rooms are slowly being updated and the beds are just great. Sleeps well.A hotel to recommend when you go to Kristiansand

The Caledonien hotel is not what it used to be. It was a monument in the city of Kristiansand, but today it is totally out of date. The hotel should have been degraded and priced in a lower range. Everything is worn, old-fashion and uncozy. Even the bed was worn, and looked like a flat tire. On the positive side,...
