We arrived to Karlskrona around 10 am and when we called the hotel to see if we could check in early, the receptionist told us that we were more than welcome to do so. On site, the staff was able to help us with recommendations for a restaurant, provide us with a voucher at a local gym as well as... More

Centrally located in Karlskrona with a fair price, clean rooms and mediocre breakfast buffet. With rather small rooms and limited space for clothes, luggage etc. this hotel is well suited for shorter stays but seems less ideal for longer stays (more than three nights), especially for families. No directly adjacent parking possibilities (around 200 meters away on a public street).

This hotel offers nothing out of the ordinary but had friendly staff, clean facilities and ok breakfast, all at a fair price. The location is excellent, very close to the center square. If you are looking for a place to just rest comfortably for the night at an afforable price, this is recommended.

Central situated hotel with entrance from a shopping galleria and from the shopping street only for pedestrians. A bit complcated solution. Parking on the street outside shopping galleria best solution(read cheapest) but parking house in galleria maybe more smooth. Reception and breakfast room not the best solution in my opinion. Ok breakfast, but a bit crowded as kitchen entrance near... More

I stayed 2 days at First Hotel Ja. The Hotel is placed central in Karlskrona and within walking distance to all the sights and restaurants in the town. It wasn't possible for me to short-time park my car in front of the hotel, but had to find a public parkering and then walk back to hotel for check-in. The staff... More

Rooms aren't the largest but it makes up for this with great comfy beds, clean rooms and really friendly staff. Breakfast buffet is great. Free WiFi is OK. There is afternoon coffee and cakes for free and free membership of a local gym with decent facilities.

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.
