눇“One night in a peaceful, friendly, comfortable hotel” 5 of 5
starsReviewed 6 days ago new This trip was a sort of sampler of
Scandinavia. We visited many places over four countries, briefly, and
for both of us a major highlight was Visby. And the stand-out hotel
was this one.
It is a simple hotel, elegant and well located in the old town. Our double room was one floor up, facing the road and the building opposite. Despite that and being near an O'Leary's sports bar, it was cozy and quiet. That may have been because of being off-season though I think it would be comfortable anytime.
The staff were friendly always and the best thing, unobtrusive. We felt as though we had the place to ourselves which was very pleasant when compared to large hotels.
The dining room was well-appointed, light and airy, with a small, well laid-out buffet-style selection for breakfast, with cereals, bread, cold meats, cheese and the rest. Even the mix of music playing was ideal for the room and time of day. We were able to relax completely and chat and think about our day.
In the afternoon the dining room provides afternoon tea, self-serve style. It was nice to arrive to. Check-in, drop things off in the room and enjoy a coffee and cake before venturing out into the beauty that is Visby's old town.
There is a park just outside the door and the sea is a few minutes easy walk.
We travel quite a bit to many places and it is so rare to find a hotel in which there is nothing at all that niggles or annoys. This hotel was one of those rare places to stay. Whenever we swing back to Gotland and Visby, this will be a definite booking.
Thanks to the staff, you gave us a stay to remember, especially as it was our 10th wedding anniversary.
