Excellent location, and easily walkable from the port. The hotel is large, reasonably priced and includes a good breakfast. Local beers are served in the bar. Sauna and small pool available. A good experience.

Helpful staff, and perfect location inside the city walls, and near the sea. And you can rent a parking space! The rooms are all different sizes and have different views, it is in an old series of buildings. So that is a bit luck of the draw there.

This rambling hotel is close to everything in medieval Visby- the museum, the defense wall, the marketplace. It has good wifi and free buffet breakfast with lots of good things to choose from.
