Spa with saunas a nice extra feature even though the pool was so cold i only used the saunas. Friendly staff. Could stay again but there are lot of other nice hostels... More

Location is great, inside the walls in the city, and with free parking. Staff is very friendly and services are ok, fast wifi and correct breakfast. The room was not big, but enough. It also has a small pool.

This is a nice hotel. A great place inside the walls of the city. It is very old, and has that kind of charm with all the little crooks and hallways to get you to your part of the lodge. Our room was pleasant on first entrance, and then we saw the 'dirty feet' imprint on the shower floor... what... More

An average hotel, the entrace is very nice but the rooms are what you'd find in any average hotel in any town in sweden. It is in a good location inside the town of Visby though. The hotel has a lot of nooks and corridors with sofas and generally nice social areas.

The hotel itself is very nice. The lobby is newer with a large tree in the middle. We got a family room which is huge. It's the size of a small apartment. The decor looks old, like your grandparents furniture, but comfortable enough. The staff was great and the room was clean. Now the bad parts. The ventilation was not... More

That's a nice place to stay, close to every nice spot in the city, clean and with a great staff. However, it's worth mentioning that it is a pricey place. É um ótimo local, próximo aos principais locais da cidade, limpo e com um ótimo atendimento. Todavia, vale citar que é um hotel caro

The hotel was nice and clean, breakfast was excellent. I was disappointed by the lack of minibar in our room, especially since the hotel knew we were travelling with a small child. They let us store some stuff in their fridge but from a revenue point of view it would have been smarter to have a minibar for parents stuck... More

Situated in an old brewery just inside the Medieval City Wall, The Strand offers value for money.

The hotel itself is very nice. Throughout the hotel they have nice areas to sit and socialize. We had a room in the extension part where the parking lot is.
