      Nothing too much trouble for staff at this hotel. Beautiful rooms, spotless and very tastefully decorated, both public and bedrooms. The breakfast buffet was amazing. Tea, coffee & pastries available to help yourself, all day FOC. The spa looked lovely although didnt have time for any treatments - daily rate to pay for hotel guests. 5 mins walk along the river side into town.

    • Overpriced and very bad sleeping quality

      Reviewed 29 July 2019

      I must started with quite bad first impression - lady at the reception was not very friendly. Lobby and breakfast area were cosy but there are few stairs to get there so be ready to carry things. We stayed in big room which looked romantic. Its old hotel, but our room was cosy and clean. Our room was facing street so it was very loud (even we stayed at 3rd floor) but the craziest sound came from birds (receptionist warn us about loud birds and even gave us complimentary earplugs - but the sound was insane, even the earplugs had no chance). It was also very warm day and night and the room had no AC or any other cooling system, so it honestly felt like a greenhouse and you couldnt open windows because of the crazy birds. And to be night hell Sweden we dont have very dark nights during summer, so since 5am was so bright in the room that even the eye blinders didnt help. And top of it was a price, which was sky hight and really not deserved!!!!!

    • Old, rude, bad, broken, no aircon, bad area

      Reviewed 28 January 2019

      Hotel Continental 27 january 2019. The owner is extremely rude and doesnt understand customer service. 1. I checked in very late at 2 am on 27 January. And the first thing she said to us is that yes you are very lucky that someone opened the door, otherwise you would be standing outside there in the cold without a place to stay. Who says that and in hotels that have 24/7 service should not even mention that thing. 2. The entrance is terrible there is a big stair you have to walk up to, so it is not recommended for people that have kids with strollers and heavy bags. So be prepared to carry up heavy bags and etc, without having help. 3. The rooms are very old and you can hear the sound of people walking upstairs, outside the door and its very echo. And the toilett smells terrible old toilett stink. 4. The hair fan doesnt work and the rooms comes without bathroom utilities. No toothbrush set, no w tips, no facial towels. Theres not even a pen and a note book to write down notes. 5. After terrible night of there is so freaking cold in the room and has no floor heat or room heat/Aircon. I could only sleep until 9 am, and it was so cold I couldnt sleep. 6. So instant I went for breakfast with my family in the lobby/breakfast area. We had a great time until this lady the owner start asking which room nr our room is and we should be charged extra for one extra breakfast. Im totally fine with that, but interrupting me and my familys conversation and start with that is just a such a break. and she only asked us for our room like she didnt believe I was staying there. She did not asked any others room. This is when the whole story started about the angry lady in continental hotel at kungsgatan 5 in Halmstad. 7. I was in their lobby cafeteria speaking only phone on speakers, and she complain that the speakers is to loud and it bothers other customers in the lobby. There was NO CUSTOMER in the lobby during the time i was speaking on phone. And it shouldnt Mather shouldnt I be able to talk freely in the hotel lobby? She said there nobody here but it bothers me. And she said the customers that was standing in reception was complaining about me speaking on my phone. Im pretty sure I was not loud. 8. I wanted to go down to the spa area to check. I asked her if she can open the door so I can see. She needs to press the button under her desk to open, instant she skipped my need and start serving other check in customers. Than I asked her again after waiting 5 minutes. And other customers came to check in and she helped them instant and than I skipped going down to the spa. 9. The advertisement have a picture of the spa but expect to pay 195 or to access the spa or in case you go for a treatment in their 1 star spa for over 1200 sek. Which is not normal that you have to pay entrance for the pool in hotels. 10. The tone of the owner was using against me was very strong and mean. She was not friendly and never smile to any customers. Shes around 60-70 years old, with glasses, brown hair. So on customers side even putting a smile on our own face wont give a smile on her face. 11. The building doesnt even look like an hotel it looks like an apartment building and inside looks like an old vintage corridor to the rooms with this kind of Grey apartment stairs. 12. I asked for the confirmation on my check out after taking to best western about my terrible stay. And she even tried to charge us 90 ke for toothbrush. That did not mention must pay for it the tooth brush was in the lowest quality. 13. She said a really mean thing to me before I left and that was it. I had to share my review with this terrible owner. 14. The rooms are extremely old and has holes in walls and doors. There is no lockers in bathroom and the bathroom door are making a creepy sound when closing/open. 15. Its not even a hotel its like a student korridor. And i was charged 1300 kr for a terrible 7 hours. 16. There is only two working lights by the bed. 17. She said we got a bad room because we paid 10% less because of best western member ship which was 1300 sek 18. Very far from all shops and the city. No restaurants or shops within 500 meters. Summary: i was spending a total 2 am - 11 am and it was my worst stay in a hotel room out of over 1000 hotel nights Ive been staying in my life. I dont understand how best western can let them be a part of them. Cause they are not their standard. I cant believe how this owner dare to treat me like this as a customer.

    • No no nope!

      Reviewed 29 July 2018

      Came to Halmstad for an event that was business related. Halmstad is very busy during this month and there were no other hotels available. I got a standard room, which was a single bed room. The room was old and smelled funny due to bad ventilation. It had a small and old bathroom and shower with almost no space in it (so small that my towels fell into the toilet as I tried to reach them and on the floor on the toilet brush). Next to that room there was a room marked 'minibar'. There was no minibar, but more like a closet. But the problem was that there was an ill placed table in front of that door (due to lack of space), so that closet was not of use at all! The room was hot and stuffy, probably due to the bad ventilation system and the fact that it doesn't have AC! When I was about to leave my hotel room, the door (with a card key system) wouldn't lock! So I stood there with the receptionist trying to figure out how to lock the room door, as I didn't wanna leave my things in an unlocked room (obviously!!). All the above showed the lack of standard of the hotel and it shows lack of interest for bettering this horrible place. However what was the most unprofessional and embarrassing, was the manager of the place, a lady, who doesn't know how to get company payments done, and told me I had problems with payment of the room. The room was booked through a travel agency that has the hotel bill them (very normal thing in this day and age) and she seemed not to know how this works and instead of realizing that she's at fault, she comes up to me and literally asks me: are you the one who has problems with the payment? That is unprofessional when she knows that SHE is the one with the problem with payment as she doesn't understand how billing works. Obviously the travel agency takes care of the payment! Why would she say such a demeaning thing? This hotel was an absolute joke.
