Excellent location, beautiful room, what a wonderful stay! Other reviewers wrote complaints that the hotel is outdated. I personally wouldn't change much in the room we have gotten, except maybe parquet needs to be redone. Yes, it is obvious the hotel isn't new, but why change something that is so welcoming and warm? For next to nothing, we have decided to upgrade our room and got one overlooking a park (and a side river view). The room was huge. The bathroom was huge. Light came in from floor to ceiling windows and it was just amazing. A balcony in front was inviting to enjoy the city life even more up close. We had a big sofa in the room. The bathroom was decorated for princes and princesses, I think, and it had an old fashioned bathtub. It looked very cool. Upon our arrival, there seemed to be a lot of parties going on on the main street. Our room was around the corner and whatever noise was on the main street, it didn't seem to reach us. We slept well for two nights. Best upgrade ever? If we come back, I'd stay here again for sure. You will find the room equipped with the water kettle and a selection of coffee and tea at your disposal.

Breakfast is served at internal atrium on the second floor. The hotel does have vegan breakfast options offering plant based dairy and cereal, breads and fresh cut vegetables and some limited amount of fruit. You can survive, if vegan. The city Halmstad offers further vegan options for lunch and dinner, so no need to despair.

No place to park the car made us ( with a lot of heavy luggage ) to take a long walk to and from the car. Nice and friendly staff who made us to feel good during our stay. Absolute in the center of city.

Great hotel very nice staff
The pub downstairs could be a nois hazard during weekend evening. Breakfast atrium is very nice looking but also a bit sterile.
Rooms are lange, but a bit outdated and the shower have almost nog waterpressure.
Loved the ironing board, don't see much of those anymore

I liked the hotel and the surroundings as its in center of the city. Its really an affordable place and they have a friendly staff. Since I am vegetarian, there were not many options in the breakfast. But other than that it was really a good experience.

A pleasant stay that we will recommend.
Good location and close to restaurants and shopping.
Close to parking the car, in the street.
Easy to find the hotell.
We did not understand the photo of a man in our room?
Whats the purpose?
