I have stayed at the Best Western Strand Hotel on several occasions and will do so in the future. This is in relation to work I do at Uppsala University - Campus Gotland. While the university makes the reservations, in my opinion, this hotel is an excellent place to stay. The views are very good, walks to the historic city...

Stayed 2 nights with my family during october. Good location, peaceful. Spacious room, interior ok but a but worn down. Suprisingly unclean bathroom was a minus. Breakfast great. Spa with saunas a nice extra feature even though the pool was so cold i only used the saunas. Friendly staff. Could stay again but there are lot of other nice hostels...

Location is great, inside the walls in the city, and with free parking. Staff is very friendly and services are ok, fast wifi and correct breakfast. The room was not big, but enough. It also has a small pool.

This is a nice hotel. A great place inside the walls of the city. It is very old, and has that kind of charm with all the little crooks and hallways to get you to your part of the lodge. Our room was pleasant on first entrance, and then we saw the 'dirty feet' imprint on the shower floor... what...

An average hotel, the entrace is very nice but the rooms are what you'd find in any average hotel in any town in sweden. It is in a good location inside the town of Visby though. The hotel has a lot of nooks and corridors with sofas and generally nice social areas.

The hotel itself is very nice. The lobby is newer with a large tree in the middle. We got a family room which is huge. It's the size of a small apartment. The decor looks old, like your grandparents furniture, but comfortable enough. The staff was great and the room was clean. Now the bad parts. The ventilation was not...

That's a nice place to stay, close to every nice spot in the city, clean and with a great staff. However, it's worth mentioning that it is a pricey place. É um ótimo local, próximo aos principais locais da cidade, limpo e com um ótimo atendimento. Todavia, vale citar que é um hotel caro

The hotel was nice and clean, breakfast was excellent. I was disappointed by the lack of minibar in our room, especially since the hotel knew we were travelling with a small child. They let us store some stuff in their fridge but from a revenue point of view it would have been smarter to have a minibar for parents stuck...

Situated in an old brewery just inside the Medieval City Wall, The Strand offers value for money. All the expected amenities are in place but I want to highlight a couple of them: 1) adjacent to the cosy lobby is a charming library with work desks, 2) the two beds in room 443 are placed towards a corner of the...
