We booked this hotel through Booking.com but on arrival we were advised that there was a party that evening. It transpired that this is a regular Thursday night event with several hundred young people in attendance every week along with the associated noise. The hotel did give us a refund when we decided to check out and luckily we had... More

This is a quirky little old hotel with some charm still left and friendly staff. We stayed over on a road trip. Very good value, but don't expect luxury rooms. The breakfast was surprisingly really excellent and there was free parking. Right next to the old fort which is really worth a look.

They had free candy just outside of the conference rooms, so they basically had me at hello. They had a pretty good beer selection at the bar, and the restaurant was ok. The rooms were cozy, though old and worn. The beds were quite uncomfortable.

Bad experience with this hotel. I booked it with Booking.com and I received back the ufficial confirmation. I booked the early morning. At 9 pm I received a calling from the owner of the hotel and he said me that the confirmation was not valid. it's not the right way to work!!

Dear guest. Thank you for taking the time to write about us on TripAdvisor. The actual night you stayed with us, we had been wrong with our computer system, which released the reservations even though we had a fully booked hotel. This will certainly not happen.

This is certainly the best hotel in Kungälv. Old and quaint, but we use it all the time for our business clients. We have also used it as a conference facility, however this is not as impressive as their dining. So treat all your staff! Right next to the old fortress, worth a walk afterwards.

We spent more than two weeks in this hotel. The rooms are nice, the bathroom is allright. Before we came we have read and heard that the hotel's restaurant is not supposed to be good. After all, we spent almost every evening dining in the restaurant. The quality and presentation of each dinner was marvelous with a good taste.

In Kungälv there are not too many choises when it comes to selecting where to stay. Fars Hatt provides very standard (for a hotel, average) rooms with a very classic feel (wooden).

“Rooms facing the front parking lot can be noisy, but there is also parking out the back. If you are a light sleeper consider checking with the hotel about whether there is a quieter section of the hotel where they could give you a room - perhaps facing the river.”
