Clarion Collection Hotel Planetstaden
Ranked #1 of 17 Hotels in Lund
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 November 2009

I loved this adorable little hotel. Everything from the design of the lobby, to the little library, to the artwork on all of the walls, to the restaurant were just right. It's not a huge ultra-fancy place like some of the hotels I usually stay in on business travel, but I prefer something like this, cozier, more personal, more like a beautiful and comfortable home. I browsed the bookshelves, ate in the restaurant, spent some time working in my room. It was quiet and comfortable. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. The walk into town was no more than 10 minutes, and it is a lovely area for walking. The town center of Lund is very charming, with restaurants, coffee shops, a large grocery, bookstore and gift shops, etc. I'll certainly stay in this hotel again. Lund is also quite close to Malmo and Copenhagen, and is easily reached by train from Copenhagen airport.

Reviewed 20 September 2009

Stayed at this hotel for three nights to attend a conference at the Scandic Star Hotel just down the road. The first thing to note is that the First Hotel is located about a kilometre outside of the main part of Lund, and it's only walkable from the train station if you don't mind a long walk, part of it down a highway. Basically, it's not ideally located, and the reason I stayed here is because it's close to the even more poorly located Scandic Star. If you're driving around Sweden mind you this might appeal as they have a large car park and it is only a 15 mins walk to town.

Anyway, the room I stayed in was the standard cheapest one, and it was ok. The room was large enough, and had a sofa, comfy chair, big TV, large wardrobe, big fridge, even a microwave, but the furnishings were not that great quality and it all felt a bit unwelcoming. The bathroom was small and they had those annoying one for all soap/shampoo dispensers rather than individual bottles. Weirdly, midway through my stay all the soap was removed, which was a bit odd. I was about to complain before a woman showed up with a bar of soap and a small shampoo bottle, which then wasn't replaced the next day.

Also a bit strangely, I arranged late check out, but then they forgot and quizzed me as to why I hadn't left. The reception staff in general were a little strange.

This isn't a bad hotel, and there were some good things, like free wireless internet and a very nice breakfast included, but as you can probably tell from the review, I found it all a bit strange. If I could give two and a half out of five, I would.

Stayed here together with my girlfriend at the end of a long roadtrip through europe by car. Must say that these beds are among the most comfortable beds we ever slept in at a hotel. We had a delux room with a kingsize bed. The room also included a great jacuzzi in the bathroom overlooking the room through a large window.
The included breakfast was great with all you need and want. If you arrive by car there is an outside parking lot for free or inside for a small amount. Helpful staff.
I really recommend this quiet hotel for a nice and relaxing stay.

I was for some reason upgraded to a so called deluxe room and and the room was as expected excellent. Very modern with a huge jacuzzi and panaroma window from the bathroom to the spacious room with its huge flat screen tv. Comfortable beds and all in all a perfect, quiet and room.

The breakfast was also excellent with fresh fruit salad, salmon, herring, sausages, etc. All a Scandinavian business traveller needs! The hotel does not look all that fancy from the outside but it is very nice once you enter the reception.

The hotel is located a easy 10 min walk from central Lund, but conveniently located if coming by car. In conclusion, I loved the Planetstaden and I am sure I would even if I had not been upgraded!

Stayed here for one night business trip.

Clean, modern hotel, had a large room with a balcony, flat screen tv and walk-in shower.

Used the small gym - also a "hot tub" available.

Bar/lounge offered a small range of meals - I had a pizza. The large breakfast buffet was great !

This hotel is located about 10 min walk from Lund city. It's not very impressive from the outside but very clean and modern when you go through the entrance.

I stayed in the new wing and the room was spotless. The room was equipped with a refrigerator, small pentry with a water water boiler. Coffee, chocolate and tea provided.

A big flat-screen TV with a common set of channels including Discovery and CNN. My room had a kingsize bed and a view towards the motorway. This wasn't a problem as the room was very sound-proof.

The bathroom had the usual set of minibottles with schampo, bath gel, body lotion. Also a shower cubicle and a bathtub.

Adjacent to the reception there is a large area with nice seating groups. The reception also functions as the hotel bar. They had a basic but good restaurant service including a few main courses and also pizzas. Breakfast included both scrambled eggs, sausages in addition to what you usually find.

So this isn't a five star hotel. It lacks room service, minibar, pay tv, bathrobe, slippers. No proper hotel shop. But is definitely a four star and highly recommended.
