I stayed for one night while on a business trip. I found the hotel's staff to be very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The room was very clean and very comfortable. I slept like a log. I wished I could've slept in! Breakfast was good.

You step inside and a nice staircase greats you. The staff immediately pays you attention. The rooms are clean and modern, including the bathroom. We asked for nice restaurants nearby and where very pleased with the recommendations. Great hotel!

Nice big room, decent shower, good breakfast, good location right in town. A little difficult to find and park but it is nice and central. Plenty of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance..

Thank you for your nice feedback! Our centrally located hotel is actually not far from two different parks - just walking distance also. It´s a shame you missed it. I´m glad though that you enjoyed both location, the room and our breakfast. Welcome back to us at First Hotel Ja :) More

Very central, quiet, nicely decorated, friendly, great breakfast (with waffles!), baby cot supplied by friendly staff. Double room was a double bed plus a sofa bed. Shower was a bit hot and cold at 8am unfortunately.
