It is too cold to sleep outdoor in January
Therefore, we have made efforts to make it possible for our visiting students to live well while they are here. Agderbyen, with Grimstad and Arendal in the centre, has many options for accommodation and plenty of good food and drink to offer. We have made agreements with three hotels and a landlord of holiday homes (cottages and apartments) on advantageous prices for our visitors.
A presentation of these follows below.
100 NOK = 10 €
The Guest House Ibsen
This exceptionally cozy accommodation is super centrally located in the center of Grimstad. They have rooms and apartments enabeling them to host all from one to multiple overnight guests. All rooms have homemade breakfast included in the accommodation price. Some of the apartments also have simple cooking facilities. Accommodation in twin rooms costs NOK 450 per night for our students. If there are more of you, the price per person drops to a minimum of NOK 350 per night. If you are a group of several people, this can be a good solution. If you are traveling alone but want to share with someone else, KIS can be helpful bringing you together.
This is not only a camping. Very close to Grimstad city centre you find this provider of houses and apartments. They provide accommodation for 400 Nok per night/ per person if the apartments are being filled. They provide no breakfast but all apartments and houses have cooking facilities. There are two supermarkets in walking distance. If you travel with friends, this may be a great option. If you plan to go alone, but want to share rooms with someone, KIS can help put you together with someone in a similar situation.
