“Classy - great location, just not 5/5”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

I enjoyed this hotel, which is in a very good location if you arrive in Halmstad by train. It is also a short 10-15 minute walk in to the central shopping district.
The room was very fine, and was very clean and comfortable. The shower in my room was really nice, so I have to disagree with a previous reviewer on this point.
I also agree with another reviewer on the breakfast, which didn't seem great. The choice wasn't so extensive, and the juice was really unpleasant.
However it is in a quiet neighbourhood, with friendly service and has a really good "feel" about the hotel.
I would stay here again, but might eat breakfast elsewhere.

Stayed one night at this hotel with my spouse and checked in rather late in the evening. Got an upgrade and stayed in an executive room, it was a high ceiling, very spacious and a nice couch. The floor was a bit worn down, and the bathroom was not anything special - but the feeling of the room was overall very good.

The breakfast was good, I miss having real scrambled eggs, not the powdery stuff that most hotels have, but nice fruits, fresh smoothies, good coffeee, very fresh bread and more that an average hotel breakfast by my views.

If you are going to Halmstad, stay here.

I decided to surprise a friend of mine and my choice fell upon this little hotel in Halmstad. I found a nice deal on their webpage, including overnight stay, 2-course dinner, spa with treatment/massage and breakfast.

We arrived around lunchtime and got our room fairly quickly, the receptionist apparently had more then one chore to do and was busy setting things up, but things went ok and without a hassle. We got a lovely room on the second floor, the room itself was fantastic but the toilet/shower was probably one of the worst ones I have ever encountered in a hotel. Amenities were really nice tho and so were the linen/towels/bath robes. There was even a small teddy on our bed, such a sweet little detail.

Treatment at the hotel spa was amazing, the spa itself left a bit to wish for, work being done outside ruined the outdoor Jacuzzi and inside there was merely a sauna and relaxing beds while waiting for your turn. Hot stone massage was really good and I would definitely recommend it.

The breakfast was really nice, a bit small for a hotel buffet breakfast but at the same time more than enough and lots to chose from, great coffee and kind of a "homey", intimate feeling that made you feel right at home.

I would love to go back, it was an amazing relaxing experience and the staff were so helpful with everything. Its central but at the same time in a quiet location with lots of peace and quiet.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in preparation for a customer meeting on the following day.

First impressions were very good. I was greeted by a very effective and friendly staff, got my things sortet out in a whiff, room was big, bright, clean and quiet. Modern furniture mixed with antiques (and for some reason some african art and sculptures). Very nice indeed.

Sleep quality was really good (lots of pillows to choose from and a nice mattress). Used the (very basic) fitness room - it was just ok with some basic exercise equipment.

Breakfast appears not to be the strong side of this hotel. It is basic - what you expect - and just ok. Quality of the scrambled eggs left something to wish for.

The hotel is very close to the central station and a 5 minute walk from the city centre. Thus an almost perfect location in a quiet part of the city.

Great location just moments from the station and about 5 minutes from the town centre. Thoughtfully designed rooms with great facilities, even a teddy bear on the bed (but certainly still classy, not tacky).

Loved out stay, had two rooms on the same floor. The smaller(a bit to small for 2 pax) room overlooked the courtyard and was quiet, the other nice and large but as with most city hotels a bit on the noisy side as the city wakes up, garbage strucks, delivery etc.
Buffet breakfast had everything from cereal to cold cuts, scarmbled eggs, bacon and pancakes, the kids loved it.
Great service, comfortable beds and fresh linen and a real shower. Yeah!
No parking included

Room Tip: If you sleep with your window open ask for a room overlooking the courtyard.

The train station is 150 meters away, it is real easy to find. The staff was very kind, they provided us with a city map. The room was clean and silent. The bed was too soft, however impeccably clean. The places of entertainment are 10 blocks away. Compared to the other hotels in Halmstad, I found Continental a good deal while still having what's expected from a more expensive hotel.
