“Excellent small hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Great location just moments from the station and about 5 minutes from the town centre. Thoughtfully designed rooms with great facilities, even a teddy bear on the bed (but certainly still classy, not tacky).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Loved out stay, had two rooms on the same floor. The smaller(a bit to small for 2 pax) room overlooked the courtyard and was quiet, the other nice and large but as with most city hotels a bit on the noisy side as the city wakes up, garbage strucks, delivery etc.
Buffet breakfast had everything from cereal to cold cuts, scarmbled eggs, bacon and pancakes, the kids loved it.
Great service, comfortable beds and fresh linen and a real shower. Yeah!
No parking included

Room Tip: If you sleep with your window open ask for a room overlooking the courtyard.

The train station is 150 meters away, it is real easy to find. The staff was very kind, they provided us with a city map. The room was clean and silent. The bed was too soft, however impeccably clean. The places of entertainment are 10 blocks away. Compared to the other hotels in Halmstad, I found Continental a good deal while still having what's expected from a more expensive hotel.

The rooms and common areas are clean and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was pleasant. We visited from the US to drop off our son at Halmstad University and they went out of their way to provide us with guidance relative to the area. The breakfast buffet provided multiple European breakfast choices and was always kept well stocked and cleaned. The last day we had to depart at 6am, prior to the scheduled breakfast time, and they set our table and provided us with several breakfast selections that we choose the night before. I definately recommend staying at this hotel for the service alone!

Stayed in the Hotel Continental in Feb '10 with a group of 12 people as we were in Sweden for a family wedding. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and allowed us a late check-out in order to get ourselves organised for the wedding. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice available. The hotel is ideally situated as it is about 100 metres from the train station and a 5 minute walk from the town centre but is still located in a quiet area. I would definitely stay there again. The only disadvantage is that the hotel doesn't really have a proper bar, although we went to the Grand Hotel located around the corner for drinks.

We stayed in the suite called Kungasviten for two nights in connection with our wedding. The rooms looked like an old apartment, very grand. Nice staff in reception. Reception closed at night time, so you have to pick up your key before a certain time. Comfortable bed, and delicious breakfast served. The only negative comment was that on the second day, the bedroom floor wasn't hoovered, the bath tub wasn't cleaned and and the bin wasnt emptied. But overall a charming hotel.

Do not trust this hotel!!!
Their information about conditions is imperfect and might bill your visa
card unexpectedly, without giving you any possibilities for negotiation
(really stretching the right of hotels to retroactively charge credit
cards).
After travelling around the world in the last 20 years this was the
worst hotel experience I have ever had.
