Clarion Hotel Ernst - located in the centre of Kristiansand
Clarion Hotel Ernst is located in central Kristiansand.

The train station and bus terminal are just a few blocks from the hotel, and the airport bus takes you straight from Kjevik Airport.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the hotel restaurant. The bar, Club Clarion, is right next to the hotel's spectacular atrium, with its emphasis on music and its wonderful atmosphere.

Art at the hotel
Clarion Hotel Ernst was completely renovated and re-opened in the spring of 2012. The hotel's rich traditions have been preserved, but are now combined with modern, international design and exciting contemporary art. "Staying at Clarion Hotel Ernst used to be like staying at a manor house or a luxury villa. These days, we want to convey more of a sense of being in touch with the whole world. We're in Kristiansand, but this interior and art could just as easily be found in New York or Paris," says Sune Nordgren, the man behind the artistic concept.
