A very nice surprise - would stay again for sure! Posted 29-Jun-2013
We were quite pleased with this hotel. It took us about 35 minutes to walk to it from the ferry terminal. We had a bit of luggage to wheel along. With just a backpack, one could likely walk it in 20-25 minutes. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the walled city of Visby. The room was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Included were a microwave, stove top (no oven), a fridge, dishwasher and a good assortment of pots, pans, dishes and cutlery. Because we like to do our own cooking, this was a great advantage. There is a grocery store that is a 5-10 minute walk away, as well as a much larger one in Visby. The room was typical Swedish design with a separate bedroom away from the cooking area and dining/living room. We had a balcony on both sides of the room and there was a an outside table and chairs available for dining and watching the waves down on the shore. This room was a "standard" category . . . there are separate cabins/bungalows for larger groups. Staff were pleasant and informative. A complementary breakfast was included. Contrary to some other reviews, we found the breakfast to be very good. There was a wide assortment of hot and cold food that should satisfy any palate. For the technically minded visitors, the WiFi is 10 Mb/sec upload and download, making Internet access quite fast and efficient. The room also has a flatscreen TV and a CD player. Highly recommended to everyone!
