The hotel is situated beside the train station, the room was nice and clean. The bed was good however the insulation is bad, so easy to be waken up if you have a light sleep... The curtain shower is sticking on your body , disgusting, ...looks like many customer complain about it but nothing changes so why they ask us... More

In the center of Kolding. New hotel with ok rooms. decent breakfast but restaurant is a bit expensive for what it is. Wi-Fi is working fine and the parking under the hotel is fine. My favourite hotel in the Kolding area.

Perfect position, wonderful staff, warm and friendly, directly across from train station, 1 block from shopping street, 1 block from Koldinghus castle and lake, allowed early checkin when room was ready.

This is a modern hotel, opposite the station and about 250m from the centre of town. The First chain are normally good but this one was a little off the pace, I felt. The room was a little bashed up (dents, scratches etc.) but the main problem was paying for it. Although I had prepaid, they insisted on my paying... More

This hotel delivers what you may expect from a First Hotel. Personally I do not like hotels that does not have safes in their rooms. Having travelled a lot over the last decade or so I have gotten used to a few routines. One of them is putting my valuables in a safe at the moment I enter my room.... More

This hotel is clean and rooms are quiet, and the breakfast in the morning has plenty of choices. You won't leave hungry. This location is perfect too, as you are right downtown. The only unexpected thing was the "Standard Double"....it does not mean there are two double beds in the room...it means two people can stay in the room. So...push... More

Welcoming reception staff ( and Night Porter ) - rooms are comfortable but they are carpeted and show signs of age and damage. Regrettably my room suffered from a noisy heating system , but overall a comfy bed ! Breakfast was good. Good parking available at a cost. Ideally located next to the train station.
