We had eight single rooms here and each one was clean, spacious and well appointed. They are not plush or elaborate but good value and well maintained. Breakfast is good and although the hot food was sometimes rather luke warm, it's replaced frequently. The staff are very helpful and efficient and loaned us several umbrellas when it rained. The area...

Good location, only 10 min walk from old town, Room was big enough (superior room) no view. Free barking on the street. Free baby bed. Breakfest was poor not many items to choose from, room was crowded and not enough room to walk. Not 4 stars hotel, more 3 stars.

The hotel had been bought and paid for Tjäreborgi travel agency .First thing when we arrived to hotel they wanted credit card,no hello no nothing.Just because they have minibar on the room,i think they wanted to charges us for nothing.Hotel rooms was small.Breakfest was bad, everything was over before you wanted to start eating.Smoking was only outside the hotel.

We have been 3 nights and the stay has been great!! The bedroom was well equiped and cleaned (it wasn't very big) and staff was very nice with us.
