This hotel is right in the center of Karlskrona, at no distance from shops and bars, 100m from the main square. If it fits your budget, this is the place to stay. In spite of being in the center of a Swedish city, the rooms seem to be spacious (I had 404, almost perfect) and the hotel has personality and... More

great hotel in a street filled with shops and restaurants. Close to the harbour, where you can take a nice walk. The rooms are fine. The only thing I didnt like was that there was a backdoor in de breakfastroom to the garage so a lot of people will walk with there suitcases thru the breakfastroom.

This was my first visit to sweden and obviously first time stay at this place. Unlike the usual overload of people in the hotels in my part of the world., first hotel ja came as a pleasant surprise, with very scarce (Nil) manpower. The hotel is (Wo)manned by some of the most efficient, ever smiling and active personnel. The hotel... More

Much of this new review is as before. Nice friendly staff, comfortable beds and a nice breakfast choice. Small hot and cold gratis buffet in the evening if you buy a drink. Nice new touch is the free wi-fi but on the negative side what ever happened to the towels? They're now the size of dish cloths!

Nice comfy beds, nice rich breakfast, friendly staf. Nothing wrong with the place. But it is worn and way overpriced. Location is good in the middle of town, but I found no way of getting the car close. So be prepered to carry your luggage.

A nice, clean and comfortable hotel. The staff are very cooperative and extremely warm and polite. The room was small but neatly decorated and spotless (well, there was a coffee table there which I used to stumble on, I don't know if it was my clumsiness or the room size!) The bathroom was good though a bit small (specially the... More

Nice, small hotel right in the middle of Karlskrona. Within walking distance of the train station but uphill most of the way . Bed rooms and bathrooms are are on the small side but immaculately clean and quiet. Small bar and lounge area. Breakfast buffet is very good quality / choice and replenished often. The staff are very helpful and... More

The hotel is in the city center of Karlskrona. It is a nice location to start strolls through the shopping area and to find restaurants. The parking is hidden and hard to find, but the garage is located behind the hotel attached to the shopping gallery that is part of the building. The rooms are small, but still ok for... More

I've been to Karlskrona 3 times on business and have always stayed at the First Ja hotel. During my first trip, the room was very average and the bathroom left a lot to be desired. However, for the next two trips, my room was nice, a standard business hotel room, with a clean, though small, bathroom. Pros: + Location in... More

I say surprising, because first impressions are not the best. Getting into the hotel from the underground car park is a bit of a puzzle - you have to go up a level, search around to find the entrance, and then wheel your cases past the bemused shoppers in the small shopping mall. The reception has a bit of a... More
