The hotel has a perfect location next to Knutpunkten. Stayed here on a family tour in two rooms. Hotel is old, but clean, odd design - the reception clerk (or manager?) could be more friendly and was very up to his computer system. For the right price I would stay again

Due to a business conference in Helsingborg (which otherwise is beautiful city) my colleagues and I stayed at First Hotel Karnan. For starters it wasn’t as well known a hotel as I would’ve expected, a fact I became aware of when not even the cab driver knew of it. The hotel is a 3 star hotel but a bit more old fashioned and not the new build type of hotels. It reminds more of an apartment complex from the 70’s made into a hotel with little to no renovation other than bathrooms. The hotel has 5 floors and rooms in variable sizes equipped with a desk a tv and twin beds. The bigger rooms have a balcony, a living room with a couch and another tv and a dining table. There’s free wifi with good enough speed to stream tv shows. Negatives: - No AC - No keycards but traditional keys that have big and heavy metallic keychains - You have to leave the key at the reception any time you’re leaving the hotel (part of their policy) - No safe in the hotel rooms - No gym - Good breakfast but small range of choices - One elevator that was small (about 1,5m x 1,5m) - Cheap rooms for around 1000kr per night or slightly below. Positives: - Friendly staff - Comfortable twin beds - Bus stop right outside the hotel main entrance and Helsingborg central station (where all busses go from) across the street. - Closeness to the marina (about 100m) - They have a sauna at reception floor

This is a perfectly located hotel right in the center of Helsingborg, with very friendly staff. The room we had was small but nice and felt updated, but the bathrooms are in desperate need of a renovation. Clean though! The breakfast was very nice, and since it was a very warm morning, we had it outside where they have a cozy courtyard.

We received a friendly welcome when we checked in. It is an older building in the center of Helsingborg. Just 4 min walk to the ferries to Helsingör. Plenty with restaurants in the surroundings. Our room was clean and had a quite new interior. The decoration was actually very attractive and made us feel good. Beds was comfortable. There was no instructions to TV channels? Did not find any International channels. Outside the room there was a hut with a fan. It was noisy during the day. Fortunately it was turned off during the night. There was also an outside seating area outside the room. That was used by other guest for having a glass of beer or wine that possible had been purchased in Denmark during the day. That continued to 00:20.....

Cosy old hotel with carpets inside the lift :-) Loved the fact that you had a regular key to the room instead of a plastic card. The room a bit noisy with ventilation unit running. But clean room. Nice staff and a fine breakfast buffet.
