“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2011

I stayed here only one night but would definetely not like to come back!
According to the Hotel's internet information some very few parts of the building might indeed be from the 14th century and there is indeed is some historically inspired interiors but cleaning methods are also historically inspired!
Checking the little closets next to the bed we found receipts and hygiene articles of former guests in the drawers who must have stayed weeks there weeks before us!
The pseudo-cozy knight furs on cheap leather armchairs were full of old (knight) hair.
The view is out to the big parking lot.
Room was a little bit over 2.30cm high - depressingly low ceiling!
There is absolutely NO noise reduction from other people's footsteps from the room above yours.
Wireless does not work because of the ancient old and thick walls, as we were told.
The "fancy" hidden in patinated backgrounds for the TV is a simple wooden box from the Bauhaus with some dark paint to make it look old.
Breakfast is at youth hostel standard, while seated on hard and heavy dark-wood chairs (historical inspired!), covered with the above mentioned funny furs as wel.
Modern hot beverages such as cappucino and latte machiato are served as ready-made dried powder.
An interesting hotel experience, not really midieval and not cozy and not quiet at all, absolutely overpriced!

Room Tip: if at all ask for a room in the upper floors!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2010

I arrived in the evening- just 20 minutes after the reception was said to be open- and it was very hard to get in contact with the manager to get the code necessary to get inside. We, me and my husband, stood outside the hotel with our suitcases, the taxichauffeur and a nice person just passing by helped us to figure out which number to dial to get in touch with somone who could give us the code to get inside.
the rooom booked was on the groundfoor overlooking parkinplaces in both directions. Any person passing by could look directly upon us- It felt like being in an aquarium.
The breakfast romm was too tiny - not enough space between the tables, and the braskfast buffe was poor if you have expectations for a hotel with at least 3 stars- but this hotel poclaims it has luxury standards- I certainly dont agree with that. Choose another hotel- there are more than of historic places in Visby. Of course some of the rooms in the hotel may be of high standard- but the price for our room was the same- too high- and servic was lousy- and breakfast nothing to be proud of if you pretend to be a high class hotel.
