First Hotel Kärnan, Helsingborg
Outdated and overpriced.
Very very dated hote. If your just looking for somewhere to sleep it can be ok but for the overall feling/standard you pay way to much. The area is nice and the service on the hotel and from the front desk I have nothing but good to say. They were very helpful!

Location of hotel was great ( just opposite the train station and very central) and perfect for the centre of Helsingborg. Hotel was basic but perfectly adequate.
