You plan a foreign trip months in advance, particularly if you're going to a new country or area, and you take a leap of faith that what you book will live up to your expectations. Hotel St. Clemens exceeded our expectations. Old Visby is a fairyland. The hotel is set in the middle of it. It is clean and comfortable; the staff were exceptionally warm, helpful and inviting; breakfast was perfect. This was the ideal home base from which to explore Gotland. The rooms are small - not a criticism from our standpoint, just a fact that's good to know.
A note about Gotland. We didn't know much about the island, but were attracted by Visby's designation as a UN world heritage site. We wish we had booked a longer stay, and would have gladly traded a day in Stockholm for a third day (the bare minimum) on Gotland. If historic, architectural and archaeological exploration motivate your travel, you will love this ancient island. The little island of Faro off the northeast end of Gotland is a must.
