First Hotel Martenson
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Halmstad
Reviewed 1 November 2017

All the staff at the hotel are very friendly - it is very welcoming. Some of the receptionists even know my name. Truly a home away from home!
I was upgraded to a room with a balcony and a small seating area - I truly appreciate that much, especially as I was staying for so many days.

The hotel provides a very good location for city visits, restaurants etc...
The service is very good with friendly and helpful people.
The rooms are fine but we unfortunately had a large bed which was in fact two small beds with a thin mattress on top; quite uncomfortable for two.

I spend a lot of time travelling and living in hotels. I first stayed at Martenson in 2006 and always stay there when I am in Halmstad. Wonderful location, nice rooms and facilities and an incredibly charming staff. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. It has become a home away from home.

The hotel has excellent location even if Halmstad is a small city. It's next to Norre Port which is kind of entry to Norre Katts Park where you can have a picnic, take a coffee and some cake in the café located in this park. You can reach everything important located in the city center by foot within couple of minutes.
The staff on the reception were kind and helpful and answered on every question we had.
If you want to have some sleep, ask for room which is located either to Nissan river or to the park. Right next to the hotel is a night bar and it can be noisy especially on Friday and Saturday night.
The room was OK. The strange thing was that even if we stayed in family room, there was not a cupboard where we could put our clothes.
The breakfast was amazing with everything you wanted. Even the salmon was not missing :-)
The wifi on the room was working excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms located to the square can be noisy due to night bar.
