Stockholm, Sweden

The room 339 did not match its price, that is an inferior room and should be priced accordingly. No soap in the dispenser and not very clean in the shower part. Window could not open thus no fresh air available in room.

A Perfect hotel with very friendly and helpful staff in the heart of Halmstad. Nice and clean rooms. No problem at all for our son (with oat & milk protein allergies) to get information about ingredients at the breakfast!

Good location in the Center and shopping area. Great breakfast and we had a view from the room to the old city wall. Good value for money. Parking is not at the hotell but in a parking house nearby and in rainy weather you will be wet

Very helpful staff and they helped me upgrading my room because of my claustrofobia. I also booked a conference room and that was exactly as you could expect. I didnt have the chance to eat breakfast but the city is just outside the hotel.

A nice hotel in the center of the city. A great stay even if you intend to be around the beach of Tylösand, it's just a quick drive. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. If you travel by car, they'll fix you up with parking too. Breakfast is delicious!

This is a nice hotel in the center of Halmstad. Even if its a nightclub in the house it was quite in the room and the view from the balcony was gorgeus, overlooking Nissan. Breakfast was fresh and ok. THe beds were nice and cosy. :-)

Clean, nice and comfort hotel. Supernice room with a beautiful view over "Nissan". (But I had to pay extra for it) Great breakfast and nice staff. Gym not included wich I think is bad since it´s quite expensive. No free toiletries either as on many other First hotels.

The hotel has seen better days. No pen and paper, no toiletries. No electrical sockets by the bed. Lightning minimal. The beds are narrow and blanket small. Quite worn and basic rooms overall. Good breakfast and very nice people. Street-facing rooms are incredibly noisy. Bar guests shouting under the windows made sleeping impossible till quite late. At 6.00 wake-up was...

“Our room facing the townwall was very quiet.”

“On thursdays nights, ask for a room higher than 2nd floor and towards the channel on the back-side of the hotel. On this evening, the bar/restaurant next door hosts a typical Swedish event which is kind of a Jeopardy game. Lot's of loud music and happy people :-)”

“Request a Room in a quiet area, and on the top floors, if you arrive on a Friday or Saturday and don't want to be disturbed by the Nightclub.”

“Ask for a room towards the alley, those are likely to be far more quit than those towards the street with the restaurants and the club. Maybe it could also be wise to avoid the first floor.”
