Poor room, strange hotell, with strange solutions. Loads of stairs, and worn down rooms. My room had a great bathroom, but besides what, nothing in this hotell is ok! Breakfast is ok nothing more nothing less. Nice reception and friendly staff. But it is not worth the money. Knaust close buy is better in all cases. Sorry First hotell strand.... More

+Staff at front desk were warm and friendly. Felt right at home when we first entered. +Breakfast spread was good with a wide selection. Had a colleague who was vegetarian, the chef whipped up a dish for her dinner. Kudos. -Rooms were a tad dated, with old furniture and amenities. Nice naval theme in room though. Also on the bright-side,... More

This is a nice, big hotel right in the center of Sundsvall. Rooms were spacious (had a deluxe room), service was good, lovely breakfast, free wifi. Nice restaurant and lobby area with coffee and cakes. I would come back here.

this is a nice hotel with an odd layout - needs tea and coffee in the rooms - comfy beds and nice views. Receptions staff are really nice, the bar staff were a different story and you are not allowed to take drinks upstairs which is odd. Breakfast is fine though not as good as the nearby hotels

Nice hotell 5 minuters walk from shopping and even less to the big casino. Really nice superior room with comfy beds. Not so big breakfast but oh so good. Had a gym and a spa which I didn't have the time to use.

The hotel is centrally located so you have e everything on walking distance. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Bathroom was spacious too and very clean. The huge breakfast was well served and the coffee very tasteful.

I stayed here with work for a night, very good condition of the rooms, and the bed. Great views from the room too. But the hallways was not that fresh, they felt old and in a big need of renovations. The staff was great! I will come back.

Very convenient location close to the central station and the city centre. I believe the hotel offers several different price ranges, therefore people's experiences are very varied. The room I stayed in was extremely small and basic, although I wouldn't say it was exactly a 'low budget' price. The window didn't close properly and there were no facilities in the... More
