“Not so great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

It is very convenient, right next to the ferry/train station and on the main street.

The rooms are tired, with worn carpets and worn furniture. And the building is so close to the train/ferry station that if your room faces the station, you could practically spit on the train station's windows.

The lobby is an atrium with stone floors, so it is cold and quiet. Most guests congregate in the british pub that's just off the lobby. I did have lunch at the bar one day and it was quite good, but I did not try the breakfast.

For my next trip, I would definitely stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the city or the water.

The main thing about the Marina Plaza is that it could hardly be better situated - adjoining both rail and ferry services, so for convenience 10/10. However, for the hotel price points it really needs to up its game. The food and beverage side of things was barely average - and if staying more than a couple of nights the identical, limited daily offer might be a little off-putting. The hotel was udnergoing some refurbishment during my stay but this didn't really interfere to any extent. The rooms were very basic indeed (avoid those looking onto the station/ferry terminal directly) and the only saving grace (for some) was the free, reasonably stable WiFi throughout.

Room Tip: Overlooking the port, if not overlooking the square - avoid the rest.

A ok hotel, but nothing special. A bit overpriced compared to the standard.
Breakfast very good, and location next to train station very convenient.

Got a room overlooking the reception area. If you like to have the possibility to open your window, avoid this rooms :).

Room Tip: Aks for a room facing "out". Suites overlooking the harbor are very nice.

I've visited this hotel several times when working in Helsingborg. It is nothing extraordinary, but still good. Breakfast is very good, and the location is as central as it can get in a small town like Helsingborg.

Garage often full, by the way.

Generally, I concur with the "mixed" reviews. We stayed for one night on our way to Frederiksborg castle.

The rooms are a good size, and have the usual amenities, and the beds are comfortable, . The hotel itself is reasonably well maintained (we didn't eat at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the food areas). There is a lounge in the central courtyard, with piano music in the evening. The location of the hotel is excellent - we were driving, but for those using the ferry/walking, its right beside the ferry terminal, and right in the center of town.

Service at the front desk was good, and we were given information about the area in general, where to walk/tour, where to eat etc. Additionally, we were told about the free 6pm-9am parking at a city lot about 5 minutes walk. (another review suggested this wasn't offered)

However, all this is negated by the price. I booked a little late, however in looking at current prices, the lowest rates are in the 1000SEK/100EUR/150CAD range. This is simply too high for this hotel. I only paid 1400SEK for the Sheraton in Stockholm, which is a proper 4 star.

In summary, if you find an offer/deal around 75EUR, it is good value. Too much above that, and I would suggest at least a look at other hotels in the area.

Stayed 3 nights on a business trip. Very soft beds, back patients beware. We were extremely disappointed about the sloppy service in the breakfast area. Dirty tables galore, cuttlery and yoghurt on the floor. Friendly staff couldn't compensate the weaknesses.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms adjacent to elevators.
