My husband and I decided to book this hotel due to the good price (half the price of other hotels during our trip), free wifi, breakfast inc as well as being close to Elmia for Dreamhack Winter 2014. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the train/bus station which made it perfect for all our travel needs. We put our bags in the hotel during the day before checkin; very smooth service.
Check-in was easy- I booked 2 single beds & requested for 1 double so my husband and I could sleep together in my original booking; I forgot to call ahead and double check this but it had already been taken care of upon our arrival! All of the staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful with any questions we had.
Our room was spacious and very clean. Beds were comfortable and we had a desk with table & chairs. Area is quiet so a good nights sleep. Included breakfast was excellent and included meats, cheeses, eggs, yoghurt, cereal, muesli as well as tea/coffee and OJ. Food was fresh & good quality.
The bus route is just up the road (less than 5 minute walk) near a lovely park and not far from a beautiful church; head in the direction of the town centre. In the opposite direction there is a small supermarket called ICA where you can pick up anything you might need. Carry on just past the mini supermarket and you will find a lovely restaurant called Koch & Bar. The prices are mid range but the food and hospitality is excellent; they also speak perfect English.

Stayed at Scandic Portalen for Dreamhack summer in Jonkoping. Twin bed room is a bit crowded for 3 people, but still it was clean, quiet even tho it was on street side, and breakfast buffet was AMAZING. Be it you want one or multiple servings you can have a pick from great quality of cheeses / hams / fruit / breads / yogurt.
Jonkoping is a good spot for a normal vacation, but even more amazing if you're coming for Dreamhack summer or winter at Elmia expo.
A lovely hotel, very welcoming staff and lovely spacious rooms. As ever in Sweden the rooms were spotless and bed comfortable. We travelled with two children who were made to feel very welcome with goody bags and a playroom. Breakfast was fantastic!
This hotel is really the best spot in the town if you're working and want some downtime because you can walk out of your hotel and get some fresh air without running into anyone.
The breakfast was the best one I've had for weeks, which is saying a lot given the amount of travel I've been doing (Helsinki hopping for 10 days).
