Stayed in this hotel while on a business trip in the north of Sweden. 1500sek (approx 80 USD for one night is cheeky and rather expensive when you see how worn out the room was. The room was small, dark and rather shaby.

The room was clean but not up to expected standard. A so called Premium room with a non working TV or radio. No light in the bathtub shower. Bed reading lamps loose from the wall. Curtins and furniture damaged.

Everything was fine, stay only for one night, the only thing I would like to improve is the quality of my shower that left water ran to the rest of the bathroom. The rest was very nice and clean. Good for the price.

First I thought the hotel is awful, the reception is old fashioned, rooms are in two buildings and the common areas are in need of repairs. Room was a positive surprise. Unfortunately the traffic noise came into my room. Personnel was very nice.

Rooms are separated in the building. Bigger rooms you have to walk. Smaller rooms are easier to access. Don't take the inside parking. Horror with the pillars. Cleansiness could be improved in the garage and lifts. Room were ok but a little bit outdated. Noise from other guests. Good receptionist tried to make the stay better.

It’s not on Espan but very much in walking distance from the town center, and striking distance to the casino if one’s so inclined. It has some years on it and it shows in the rooms, but with that said it’s clean and pretty well maintained. I also like how they managed to get a small sofa, and coffee table...

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....

+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,...

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.
