    Good location, with friendly staff & tasty breakfast but the decor and rooms are rather shabby.

    The hotel is shabby and could do with some sprucing up! It appears to have been some years since any renovation. I'm not sure how other hotels in this chain compare. The swimming pool is a lot smaller than the pictures suggest.

    The hotel was in a central location to the town and the beach. The desk staff were really helpful and friendly. The small pool was fine for a family. The sauna was good too. The breakfast was plentiful with a lot of choice.

    Remeber to pre book the garage, parking on the streets are limited to 2-3 hours during daytime mon-sat. The waffel station at the breakfast was a disaster, *lol* Remember to spray the iron with fat, don´t lift the lid until the iron "beeps", otherwise you will find your self cleaning the iron for the next 20 min, and the staff does not care ;) Guess they are tired of guest who does not read the handwritten paper on the wall telling how to do. Please Hotel Witt, buy two waffel irons that works ffs! ;) <3

    Clean rooms, good location, breakfast was good Close to the Marina, the Castle, the Crown, the main scuare, easy to find parking outside the hotel,

    Hotel could use an upgrade, its simply outdated, but well maintained.

    As such a great hotel in middle of Kalmar with good parking facilities around the hotel, the hotel it self is clean, well maintained but a bit outdated, good beds, though the rooms are a bit small, but OK for two, and an OK'ish pool in the basement. Really good Swedish breakfast with everything thats needed on a Swedish breakfast table.

    Worn down, Overpriced .. disappointing
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Junior Suite
    • Stayed 2 nights

    We were very disappointed with our room and the facilities as whole and feel obliged to let others know about it. The pictures online gives a false picture of this very worn down hotel. The suite that we staid in was very dark and strangely decorated with one tiny window and no real extra bed for our kid. You have to stand in the bathtub with a shower curtain in order to take a shower. We had a view of the backyard from ground-level so we could not have the window open which would have helped because of the problems of air circulation in the room. We tried to change our room, even to downgrade, but the staff could not help us and did not show sympathy in the matter. The relax area are in line with the rest of the hotel and gives you a "eastern european in the beginning of the 90s" feeling. The size of the pool is very small and you cannot swim in it if you are an adult.

    The breakfast was OK.

    maybe the hotel was first 40-50 years ago. but the furniture and the carpets are worn out. the rooms are very, very small and we had problems to find space to open our suitcases. the breakfast room looks like a mensa at university. the breakfast as such is good but no atmosphere. also there is a bistro at the hotel, but it seams that nobody was eating there during our stay

    Room was a bit too hot, no aircon and the decor is really tired. Free television was exceedingly limited, which was an issue with tired children who wanted an hour to chill, lounging in the room.

    Loved the breakfasts - plenty of vegan and veggie things to eat, and they met our requests for vegan spread - super staff, so helpful. My children loved the free hot chocolates and swimming pool. Very easy to get everywhere, excellent location

    This House (Hotel) is in no way recommendable. The hallways, walls and doors and the elevator are very dirty and in a state of only disgusting and in no case acceptable. The rooms are extremely small and the bathroom with mold and only conditionally clean. Breakfast - loveless, uninspired mass handling without enough seats in the restaurant. 12 parking spaces for about 150 rooms. Fitness room not suitable because of chemical evaporation. Swimming pool ???
