“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed August 5, 2007

I had the pleasure in staying here for three nights whilst I was touring different parts of Sweden. Växjö was my first stop and upon reaching my hotel I was not disappointed. I had a lovely single room on the 4th floor and the bed was slightly bigger than most single beds and extremely comfortable which meant I slept well! In fact I would like to take the bed home!

The rooms have everything you need, TV, Wireless Internet Access, Fan and Mini Bar / Fridge. The bathroom is of a good size and has a powerful shower! I had a nice view from my window and didn’t experience much noise during the night.

Breakfast is served on the first floor, and offers a vast array of hot and cold food. You would quite literally spoilt for choice, my only downside on this was I found the hot food to not quite be hot enough but bearable. The breakfast area is spacious with plenty of seating.

The location of the hotel is ideal, it’s a 5 – 10 minute walk from the bus station / train station which was ideal as a single person travelling I have my own luggage to carry with me.

Joined onto the hotel is a restaurant and bar which also serves room service, I didn’t try this but it certainly looks popular.

Overall this is a good hotel, reasonably priced and in a good location. Friendly staff make it a pleasant stay!

Me and my mother stayed at the First Hotel Cardinal for 2 nights and we had a very pleasant stay. Rooms are not huge, but also not claustrophobicly small and contain everything you need (excerpt from maybe a hair dryer?) .The best thing were the beds. We slept like babys! And think about: isnt that the most important thing? The hotel is situated in the absolute centre of the city in walking distance (200 metres) to the railway station. Breakfast was nice and the staff was kind, helpful and serviceminded - for instance, they insisted on opening the elevator doors for you all the time! I will not hesitate to recommend The First Hotel Cardinal!
