You shouldn't book it on Booking.com. They have wrong informations about the rooms and room equipment. The hotel is good but it could be better for the price. The rooms are almost the same and there is not so much place. Only Deluxe double rooms are much better than the rest.

The wardrobe contains only a shelf and a hanging rail right in the entrance area. In the room there was an odor of toilet the hole time. The bay windows looks impressive but...

As for a few negatives; little help from front desk (although nice people) with apparently a lack of knowledge as to restaurants and stores and their opening hours etc, and double rooms with too small beds.

The hotel is next to the train station, a few steps from the main shopping/dining area. It's fairly new, with reasonably sized rooms. Staff is friendly and efficiënt. When staying in Kolding, this hotel is probably your best bet.

The hotel is located near the centre and the train station of the town. The rooms included the bathroom, need to be improved. The breakfast was ok. It was supposed not to pay anything at the beginning, but I was forced for a deposit.

Extremely well located in downtown Kolding and benefitting from a private underground carpark. Rooms are nice with sufficient space, beds are excellent - but privacy in the rooms facing the courtyard is extremely limited if you prefer daylight. Next time I would insist on a room facing the street.

superior room was very standard. Just no place to put your clothes. Matrasses need to be renewed. Room needs urgent refurbishment!!! Now only 2star comfort. 2 small towels per person and not even one for the floor. Price is way to high for this hotel. Breakfast was good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
First Hotel Kolding is a wonderful and stylish hotel in Kolding. We offer 132 rooms and we take great pride in providing a relaxed, professional, and personal service. Just across First Hotel Kolding you will find the train and bus station. If you arrive by car, we offer our own locked car park. First Hotel Kolding is located by the banks of the Castle Lake within easy walking distance of the castle, Koldinghus. Visit the Trapholt Museum - the only museum in Denmark with modern art, applied art, design and furniture design - and the Kubeflex-summer house designed by Arne Jacobsen. And LEGOLAND(R) is located only 35 minutes away from the hotel. In many ways First Hotel Kolding is also the 'Literary hotel': That is, our neighbour is Kolding Library with whom we work closely together with. For example, we use he library when we arrange conferences, and here we also have our author venues, and other events. Our restaurant, Restaurant Berg, is named after 'the great son' of the city, Christen Berg, and all our rooms are in some way inspired by our passion for literature. As our guest we are happy to assist you with booking tee time at one of the golf courses close to us, provide you with information on what to ses while visiting our historical city. We also have special wellness offers for you to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
