    nothing, worst choince in town

  • Group of friends

    Connected to Dyreparken Excellent for family (children) Transportation to/from the centrum/shopping area are easy using the bus Outlet shops are close by where you can take the same bus going to the city/centrum Parking area is available

    There is no personal services, no lodger to take your luggage. Room is very small in size Cost of transportation if you are using Taxis from/to airport or from/to centrum is very high. Rather you need to arrange taking the busy, where price is very convenient.

    Thw stuff was really friendly. I liked the design.

    Unless you come there to visit the adventure park you will be boared. No shops there to be reached on foot.

    This is really a hotel for the Kristiansand Zoo, it´s basically next to the main entrance. It´s a comfortable and nice hotel. The breakfast was very nice and the rooms OK, but a bit small, not Paris standard, but all in all ok.

    Nothing to complain about, we arrived late and the lady in the reception were tired, so we had some issue with the room key. That´s all I can think of and not really a problem, unless the staff has some really odd working hours... she was also in the reception next morning, I hope she got to sleep.

    Rica Dyreparken Hotel is clean and comfortable to stay. Especially for family, it is quite good because it has amazing interiors.

    Location is very bad. If your purpose is business and you do not have car then you should select another hotel has better location.

  • Group of friends

    The location to where I wanted to be. The breakfast was excellent. The layout of the restaurant very nice

    I did not like the fact that I did not get information at check in that they would hold back 30% on top of the amount I paid for the room as a deposit. This lack of information ruined my holiday, as I did not have the money to spend on shopping etc.

  • Family with children

    The location is perfect because the Dyreparken park is next to the Hotel. The food (buffet) and breakfast are amazing!!! And the wonderful playground for the children...

  • Single

    Everything was good. Plenty of parking, good breakfast, convenient room and clean roo and very nice surroundings.

  • Family with children

    Super service, fine omgivelser, god mat og bra beliggenhet i forhold til dyreparken.

  • Couple

    Closeness to zoo, great breakfast buffet

    No window towards zoo
