First Hotel Mårtenson, Halmstad
This hotel is amazing! Rooms are comfortable and the staff super friendly and accommodating. I travel to Halmstad twice a year from San Diego to visit with family and I always book my stay at this hotel. I travel a lot for work so when I receive great service I always come back.

Good location
The Hotel is little more than average in the room standard , the breakfast is great . The best thing with the Hotel is the location , the shopping street / area is starting right in front of the door , with close walking distance to a few good Pubs and in my opinion the best restaurant in town , named PIO .

Very Good8.0
Good hotel, but not very calm..
We got a room above the nightclub and it wasn't the definition of calm.. really good hotel, but they should inform about such things ahead of you arriving there. The area around it is nice, with lots of restaurants and easy to get to Tylösand and more by buss.

Room felt like a box
Our double room was small and had a window overlooking the(rather dark) breakfast room and thus not much light. i noticed there are many rooms like ours I found it depressing and couldn't wait to check out The bfast was good
