Nice and clean, a room with a view, small but refeshing pool, good breakfast, good location, helpful staff. Jag har skrivit tillräckligt, 200 tecken är för mycket! Ni får fler omdömen om ni stryker det kravet.

This is not a hotel I would recommend. Normally I stay at Wisby hotel but it was booked. The hotel is a little bit further away, it's rather dark inside the bar and restaurant are not nicely decorated and the room looked like something decorated in the 1970's. Overall the staff were very nice, but it felt like the hotel...

Dear Katarina, I'm sorry to hear that the decor and furnishing at our hotel didn't meet with your expectations. In this case I'm happy to let you know that we are making renovations of several of the hotel rooms as we speak and more rooms are going to be renovated in the fall. The restaurant was also renovated and finished...

We stayed in the Strand Hotel for the second time and it is still charming and has a friendly atmosphere. No frills but very nice. The room was good and bright. The hotel is very close to the sea and we always go down to smell the salty breeze. It is also in the middle of the old interesting inner...

Excellent location, and easily walkable from the port. The hotel is large, reasonably priced and includes a good breakfast. Local beers are served in the bar. Sauna and small pool available. A good experience.

Helpful staff, and perfect location inside the city walls, and near the sea. And you can rent a parking space! The rooms are all different sizes and have different views, it is in an old series of buildings. So that is a bit luck of the draw there.

Had our room been nicer I would have written a better review. Our room was not the best. It was on the ground floor, our windows opening right to the street. No air conditioning, so we couldn't get any cool air. We asked for a fan, but got a small desk type noisy fan. Small bathroom, shower box was leaking...

This rambling hotel is close to everything in medieval Visby- the museum, the defense wall, the marketplace. It has good wifi and free buffet breakfast with lots of good things to choose from.

The location of this hotel is perfect and is within walking distance of all the beauty of old town Visby. It's also a quiet location, even during the Swedish Political Week festivities.
