Amazing hotel and service staff.

Amazing hotel and just in front of the central station. You cross the street and you are there at Helsingborg Central train station. Also very near to the Helsingborg port, jetty to Helsigoer in Denmark. The beach is just 5 min walk from the hotel and you can also find good restaurants near the hotel. The staff at the reception is really very cooperative and helpful. They had arranged takeaway breakfast for me early in the morning at 5 : 30am. Very clean and hygienic rooms and comfortable and cosy too. I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again the next time I am in Helsingborg.

Outdated and overpriced.

Very very dated hote. If your just looking for somewhere to sleep it can be ok but for the overall feling/standard you pay way to much. The area is nice and the service on the hotel and from the front desk I have nothing but good to say. They were very helpful!

Location of hotel was great ( just opposite the train station and very central) and perfect for the centre of Helsingborg. Hotel was basic but perfectly adequate.
