While driving from Kiruna to Malmo, we decided it would be perfectly fine to stay at a decent hotel on the way - especially when taken into consideration that for the past 9 days we've been walking through the famous Kungsleden and sleeping in tents in various weather ;). We decided on the First Hotel Strand based on good reviews... More

It is very good place to stay. Reasonable price, good location near the city. Also breakfast was very good. Staff was helpful. We even borrowed umbrellas when it was raining. We also left our bags at hotel after checking out while we had time left for our return journey

This hotel is located perfectly near by the city center. The rooms are nice but what I enjoy most of all is the staff. They are very professional and make you feel welcome every time. I will come back for business after the summer and I really look forward to it.

The hotel was ok, but the room was not clean - the doorways and mirror was dirty and when you showered the mirror on the bathroom showed a message :O :O :O creepy Outside on the street at our room a "cleaningtruck" drove by early in the morning, not once but several times :(

It was a pleasant stay. I think the hotel is renovating. Had to go through the bacement to cross for our room elevators. Not that great ventilation in the rooms. No air conditioning. Children's play area in the bacement level was not kept well.

Stayed in a budget solo room. It was a bit run down with broken bathroom door and visible "fixes", but functional and clean.I tried the "relax" but had to go back to the reception to have them turn on the light, which was a bit of an annoyance but worked out well. It was a bit warm and no AC,... More

The hotel is situated opposite the Casino in Sundsvall, good car parking near by or at the hotel. I had a single room, average size, cosy bed and free wifi. Just up the street is the wonderful "stone city" of Sundsvall, with imposing houses from the rich forestry industry that dominated the city till the end of the 18 hundreds.

The building win no design awards but as soon as you entered the lobby, there is hope You get room in the building that require a passage through a long corridor, you start doubting again.Newly renovated in a sober simple style and grade is "very good". Remaining rooms that are not renovated are struggling with a rating of "average".A design... More

From the online booking to arrival at the hotel everything went flawless. We settled right into our 4 day stay. The weather (May 20th-24th) was ideal. Everyone from the front desk staff to the restaurant were very helpful with our many questions about the area. One employee Johanna (front desk) who helped with the booking in advance to our arrival... More
