A Gotlandic breakfast with locally grown ingredients such as cheese, milk, egg, pesto, pickled herring etc. was missing would do more than it costs.
Location is unique and the staff was really kind and helpfull. Neatly decorated room with a lot of lights. Bathroom was spotless. Easter egg and as well as the card was a good initative.

Kettel with a possibility to take coffee or tea and cookies with you into the room. Excellent breakfast, good supply during the whole breakfast.

We LOVED this hotel. Beautiful old building, fantastic breakfast, clean comfortable room, and very conveniently located. Linnea (sp?), the front desk clerk was so friendly and extremely helpful. I highly recommend this hotel!!

As with most small hotels (29 rooms) you don't have 24h reception and the breakfast could for example have offered fresh squeezed juices, pancakes, smoothies etc. I would also have liked to have some (Stockholm) news paper at breakfast.
Really nice small hotel with high standard and excellent comfort. Good location.

During check in we were told we received an upgrade to the best room in the hotel. The room was really nice but… the windows had no shades/curtains! It was early August in Sweden! Unfortunatelly, when we realized it, it was too late to request a change. The cleanliness left something to be desired and we found parts of a cockroach in the bathroom. No air conditioning.

No air con in the heat of the summer, could be unbearable.

Visby was quite windy when we visited (mid August) but we couldn't fault the hotel, except perhaps the wifi, which wasn't 100% reliable in the room.
The bed was very comfortable and spacious, the rooms had been recently finished to a very high standard, the shower was powerful and luxurious, the breakfast was delicious, the staff went out of their way to be friendly and the location was excellent.

not inside the Hotel, but Visby Tourist Office could set some English guided tours external the town too in summertime (as very crowded as tourists), aimed to visit the charming places that Gotland Island has to offer. I did it by myself by bus, it can be done studying in advance the timetable. But it is a pity for most people spending their lazy days there.
1) the looking of the entire facility, either inside my room and the common places as well as the external space; 2) breakfast buffet; 3) the staff, very easygoing

Nothing really, bathroom a tad small, and our room window was out to the parking lot at eye level, but nothing bad...
Good location within the city wall. Walking around was easy! Breakfast and comfortable room.

Excellent hotel and a privilege to stay in one of the Historic Hotels of Europe. The hotel is very close to the sights of the old town. Friendly staff, good-sized comfortable bedroom. Good breakfast buffet. Convenient street parking.

The reason for being very negative about Slottsbacken is that we had our booking changed to another hotel for the second time out of two! I doubt very much that we'll try to book a third time.
