Stayed at the Laholms Stadshotell 3 nights for business in June 2013. I had previously also stayed there in August 2005, February 2006 and March 2009.
The Laholms Stadshotell is more than a Bed and Breakfast, but not really a full hotel either (no dinner available). It is located centrally in Laholm, with plenty of safe parking spaces in the back. The hotel staff is very friendly.
The friendliness of the staff is what made me give 4 stars to the Laholms Stadshotell, but my first inclination, as a business traveler, would have been to give it fewer stars.
The main reason is that the internet at Laholms Stadshotell was horribly slow during the 3 days that I was there. The wifi signal was perfect in strength, but the speed was terrible. The most basic web page took 2 minutes to load. A basic text email without an attachment took almost a minute to send. It was not a settings issue, as all internet processes did eventually succeed, but in 10 to 20 times longer than normal. Reminded me of the old days when one had a 1200 bauds telephone modem as the only way to connect to the internet. A Swedish colleague, also staying at the hotel had the exact same problem and, in frustration, she switched to using her cell phone as modem.
The staff was very nice about the internet issue, they tried to reboot all the routers, but all to no avail. For me, when traveling, the internet is essential, and for this reason, despite the nice people at the Laholms Stadshotell, I doubt I will be back.
