We picked this hotel after reading in TripAdvisor that it had now turned into a Scandic Hotel. We were very pleased with the service and the amenities like the breakfast area, pool etc. There is a public bus from the airport that stops outside the hotel, and the town center is only a 10 minute walk away. They have a... More

The hotel is right next to the ferry station, which also means only a 5 min walk to the Old Town. The pool is great, we could use it even in September when the sea was getting cold. (There is a small gym and a sauna that we didn't try.) The luggage locker room is also handy - you just... More

I have stayed at scandic visby several times before and I have never had a reason to complain before because the rooms we lived in previous was modern, pretty, small but pleasant. Everything has been good. This time around however it was a different story. In lack of other choices me and my partner got given a 'family room' in... More

Small rooms but very new. It is better to be on the 3rd floor otherwise the room is seen from the passage ways. There is a parking, small swimming pool, jacuzzi and gym. Every building is for different functions. Sleeping units, dining hall, gym and reception are separate buildings. They are not far from each other but it is better... More

Chose this place for a business trip as we have a contract with them. Pleasantly surprised. Brand new, still smells of new plaster in places, garden soil still being delivered. Sets of rooms in different buildings, as is breakfast. A bit unusual in that respect but worked out fine (in good weather...). Carports for everyone. Great location just a few... More

The rooms here are spartan, but clean and the beds are comfortable and it's quiet at night. We used this hotel the last night we were in Visby because it was close to the ferry. We were able to walk to Old Town (head in direction of the ferry, not up the hill!) The breakfast was okay; the dining room... More

Rooms of this hotel are mall and you can think you are in a military camp, the bulding seem provisional. I didn't like at all.

Nicely situated near the ferries. Free parking in the hotel area. The rooms are very simple. But ok. The TV in my room was so small that I hardly saw the picture, even with my glasses on. The hotel restaurant has a rather boring menu.

We spent a night here and generally enjoyed it; ask for a "villa" room (in the big yellow house near the road), which we understand is much quieter than prefabs up the hill. Room was spotless and had a very roomy bathroom. Staff was friendly and helpful, though breakfast was kind of so-so (they kept running out of food, coffee... More
