This was my second stay at the First Hotel Jorgen Kock. I decided to give the hotel a second chance since my first experience in 2005 wasn’t ‘terrible’ and the price was reasonable. Alas, the proprietor appears to be allowing a fair situation to turn worse.
First I’ll point out some of the positives. The lobby and dining areas are clean and attractive. The breakfast spread is adequate for the business traveler. Wireless internet access is a plus. The staff was friendly. It’s also a short 5 minute walk to the train station.
On to the negatives: There are no power outlets in the bathroom area. The room and hallway carpets are stained and dirty appearing. Room walls and doors bear the scars of too many careless travelers. The room I occupied had unpainted drywall repair (see photo). One of the mattresses smelled dreadful – possibly of urine.
In short, this is a property badly in need of upgrade – adequate for the very tolerant overnight traveler on a strict budget.
