We arrive and offered an upgraded room for 100 extra kronor we ask why and told the room you have is a bit small. OK we say and I give her 100 Kronor and I'm told they don't take cash and that I had to pay with my credit card, reluctantly I did. My credit card charges me nearly that much in exchange rate and transaction fees, Off we go to our room. Wacko!! 12m/2 at the most but you can walk around the bed. Clean but very basic, no fridge etc. If it wasn't getting late we would have moved but I don't think we would have got a refund. We then go out for diner and on my return I buy a beer for 65 krona I hand over a 200 krona note and once again told we are cashless and if I paid I wouldn't get change. That was the last straw. I left the beer on the bar and went back to my room. I will never return and suggest you avoid it!
Location in front of train station side, near to city center, public parking car in front of hotel by 3 SEK/hour, good scandinavian breakfast, supermarket and several restaurants nearby. The hotel offers a 75 SEK voucher to Bestwestern members.
The hotel is perfectly adequate, though maybe a bit on the expensive side of what you get. I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and promptly made it to my room after a fairly scary elevator ride (don't miss that there are two elevators available, no need to wait for the one that everyone sees across from the reception - there's one behind it). I was surprised to see a fairly modernized hotel without outlets near the bed. Anyways, breakfast was all right, although I got there just before it was closing. And instead of starting to clean up all the dirty dishes that are everywhere, they started by taking away the food. A bit of backwards thinking if you ask me. But it was also during breakfast I experienced my biggest gripe with this hotel. Someone accidentally broke a plate and a male employee wouldn't do anything about saying it's women's work. Eventually he did pick up a broom and then started saying that obviously it's not a man that had invented this because it was working so poorly. There were also other derogatory comments. I don't care what happens behind closed doors but in the open during breakfast this kind of thing is not acceptable, and I can only imagine how they address female guests when they're out of earshot. Despite the hotel being good otherwise, this is something that will deter me as a customer and next time I might pick another hotel.
Visiting Halmstad for a funeral. We were greeted courteously and upgraded to a lovely room by the charming receptionist. The receptionists were very helpful and informative. The breakfast is a different story and incongruent with the hotels evident service ethic: we were not greeted or welcomed on any of the three mornings The breakfast is apparently available until 9.30am but is removed bit by bit without any communication from 9 10am onwards.The young breakfast waitresses did not address the guests at all and left dirty plates on the tables until the customers had departed. A real shame as the content of the breakfast was varied and good. The hotel management have totally missed customer service requirements for the morning.A pleasant greeting at breakfast and a smile would have made this a five star review.
The hotel is very conveniently located right across the road from the station - so no need for waiting for a taxi or any other form of transport. It was a late arrival but the reception desk was manned by a very friendly and helpful representative who signed me in quickly and efficiently. The room was big but cozy, and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was sparkling clean. Breakfast was a big fabulous spread and then I was on my way again. If I'm back in Halmstad again (or if any of you are), I'd definitely stay here - the atmosphere is quite charming.
It is located right by the train station. It is an old hotel but cute and charming. Staff are very kind and helpful. Antique furniture are very well maintained and add nice aspect to the hotel. I am not sure who will come to Halmstad in March but if you have to be here you may want to stay here.
I had never been to Halmstad before. I wanted a hotel close the to train station but not too expensive. I booked it using Hotels.com. What I liked about this hotel is the old style -- rooms, hallways, lobby, and eating area. The window in the room opened up all the way. The breakfast is very typical Swedish breakfast -- good breads, cereals, cheeses, cold cuts, beverages and their inability to do eggs right (just have never eaten decent scrambled eggs anywhere in Sweden). The elevator entrance is one I am not familiar with -- a swinging door. The hotels is 3 blocks from the river and access to the city center.
This is the third time we stay at this hotel and we've enjoyed it every time! Fantastic staff that are very friendly and helpful with good tips on where to go in Halmstad. Only thing is that the rooms can be a bit small for a family of four, but it's not a major problem. Rooms are clean and neat and the breakfast great as well as the hotel restaurant.
I liked the Flair of this (former) Grand Hotel, that has been modernized shure instinct to be modern without losing the athmosphere - i like that better than the typical anonymous modern hotels. But thats a matter of taste. Beside that, i found everything i expect of a good hotel: Good bed, fast Wifi, friendly staff, decent shower with both enough and hot water and really good breakfast buffet. That it tries to as sustainable as possible leads to not accepting cash (odd reason, but OK), not offering bottled water in the room, but carafes in the rooms plus fountains in the corridors (which i liked as, the typical tiny bottles mostly don't help if your really thirsty), is also a plus for me. That it is located opposite to the the train station is both advantage (short way for traveller) as disadvantage (well, a train station IS noisy), i did'nt bother. All in all one a clear recommendation.
This is a quiet hotel located near the train station. The room are small but functional and clean. Parking is very easy near the hotel. The breakfast offers quality products. A quiet hotel in a quiet city
