Centrally located hotel. A bit old-fashioned and worn out, but very nice equipped room and bath. Friendly service. Really good breakfast that can be eaten in the cozy courtyard. You get a lot for your money.

First impression: stinky carpet, very unpleasure reception, I didn’t feel welcome to hotel at all! Room: same as shown on picture but... bathroom are very old, bed very small, you have to carry very heavy room key due to ur stay here! Very old fashion, room and whole hotel screaming for update and refreshing! Breakfast: its ok.. just OK! Stuff looks very stressful and unfriendly! Very expensive hotel for value you are offered! Put extra 500-800. SEK and enjoy your stay in some better hotel!

We booked two standard rooms sleeping 3 people for a 2 night stay in July. The hotel is directly across the road from the railway station, which made it very handy for us arriving by train. We had rooms at the front of the hotel overlooking the road and station, and although noise from trains was not a problem noise from the busy road certainly was. It is a main road through the town, hence the noise. With no A/c in the room we had to sleep with the windows open which made for an interesting nights sleep! The room itself was clean and comfortable and perfectly acceptable. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice both hot and cold. All the staff we met were friendly and efficient. This hotel is ideal if arriving/departing Helsingborg by train and I would stay again, perhaps next time having a room at the back!

The hotel has a perfect location next to Knutpunkten. Stayed here on a family tour in two rooms. Hotel is old, but clean, odd design - the reception clerk (or manager?) could be more friendly and was very up to his computer system. For the right price I would stay again

Due to a business conference in Helsingborg (which otherwise is beautiful city) my colleagues and I stayed at First Hotel Karnan. For starters it wasn’t as well known a hotel as I would’ve expected, a fact I became aware of when not even the cab driver knew of it. The hotel is a 3 star hotel but a bit more old fashioned and not the new build type of hotels. It reminds more of an apartment complex from the 70’s made into a hotel with little to no renovation other than bathrooms. The hotel has 5 floors and rooms in variable sizes equipped with a desk a tv and twin beds. The bigger rooms have a balcony, a living room with a couch and another tv and a dining table. There’s free wifi with good enough speed to stream tv shows. Negatives: - No AC - No keycards but traditional keys that have big and heavy metallic keychains - You have to leave the key at the reception any time you’re leaving the hotel (part of their policy) - No safe in the hotel rooms - No gym - Good breakfast but small range of choices - One elevator that was small (about 1,5m x 1,5m) - Cheap rooms for around 1000kr per night or slightly below. Positives: - Friendly staff - Comfortable twin beds - Bus stop right outside the hotel main entrance and Helsingborg central station (where all busses go from) across the street. - Closeness to the marina (about 100m) - They have a sauna at reception floor
