First Hotel Christian IV
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Kristianstad
Reviewed May 20, 2014

I have been here on a business trip (to Olofstrom). The building is very fascinating and it seems to be back at the beginning of the 20'!! My room was large and confortable, quite old style furniture,with dim lights but I think this belongs to the swedish taste. The bathroom would enjoy a refresh, but I have had anything I needed and the personnel has been friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great, meat, fish, cheese, fruit, juice and everything i could wish. I would come here again. Cons: no parking place available directly in the hotel but some places reserved in a public parking place, not very far, but quite far if it snows!!

The hotel building is nice (it is an old bank building). We got a room at the top floor with a nice view. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
Unfortunately, we booked a Saturday night. The hotel is located near a main road and a park. It turned out that this is the hang-out place for the local "raggare" (Swedish countryside riff-raff car based people). Their cars made a lot of noise together with all the drunken people. Very difficult to sleep.

I stayed here on business for two nights. The hotel is a converted bank and the reception area reflects this, being quite impressive. Room was spacious with comfy bed and clean bathroom. Good shower. Decor was a little old fashioned but didn't detract from the stay. Really good breakfast, good choice of bread, cheese, fruit, etc. Lots of the food was locally produced and the crushed apple juice was delicious.
Recommended for a stay in this city. Train and bus stops right outside front door.

We booked this hotel last minute. I never imagen it would be this old! I felt dead walking to my room it is horrible, not comfortable beds, and very noisy early morning due to constructions! They have no close parking and strollers to get your lagguage. Sooo not recomended :(

like a small scale Dakota from the outside. service good, I don't like over attentiveness. Room with balcony and great views, but would agree with previous comments on the bathroom. bath was great but shower head broken and of poor quality.

Room Tip: access to the balcony didn't seem to lock. probably not a good to leave unattended children in.

I stayed here for 2 nights on business. I agree with most of the comments. Good location, lovely building on the outside and decent service. My room was clean and the bed comfortable but the main downside is that it was really dated especially the bathroom which was really basic - like the youth hostels I remember from my backpacking days. The hotel definitely needs refurbishing.

Stayed here for two nights.

Have to say the quality of the hotel is in desperate need of a refresh. It is such a beautiful building and has immense potential but needs the care and money to update it to a current four star standard.

The bedrooms are quite untidy and dusty. The carpet on the stairs in so worn that you could trip on it. the only upside I thought was the dining area that had nice crockery and a good ambience but apart from that. Would not stay again.
