I am visiting Karlshamn at a regular basis and has stayed at First hotel many times. The rooms are ok, the breakfast is good but the main advantage is the staff. I can only give two stars although the hotel is better than two star. But the wifi is so complicated I gave up connecting this time. You need a... More

Pluses include late check in (handy if you are coming on the train from Kastrup/Copenhagen Airport) and central location - easy to reach the centre or to take a beautiful walk/jog along the scenic coast line; good breakfast Negatives - expensive for a basic if spacious room (however you could make this comment about many hotels in Sweden)

Spend some time here on a business trip in March 2013. Had two nights in this hotel and it was okay for that short stay. Rooms are quite big with king size bed, bathroom is old-fashioned as the furniture. Reception, hall and restaurant is modern and inviting. Service was fine and well organized.

This is a very basic hotel with limited restaurant options. It is within walking distance of the city square and several restaurants. Vegetarians: There is a Chinese restaurant up the street that will prepare tofu for you upon request. I'm not sure what else is available in the area, but I would investigate other options before staying here again.

I've just came back from Sweden. I must say that I stayed in better hotel previously. It is a very pleasant structure to be to see something different. I mean, each of the floor has a common balcony (some of the rooms have a view to the inside court) from which you can see the restaurant on the ground floor.... More

Run of the mill Swedish hotel. Cleanliness leaves something to be desired: black mould patches developing in the shower, breakfast tables so and so. Worst pancakes ever. Staff friendly though.

Stayed at the hotel on a business trip and could not fault it. Room was good; good wireless internet access; dinner and breakfast were great; and the staff were pleasant and efficient.
