    « Central but rather outdated... »

    The hotel is ideally situated if you are traveling by train, since it's just opposite the railway station. In all other aspects it was mediocre... Not bad, but not really that good either. The room (and especially the bathroom) was outdated, breakfast was average, the restaurant was "pub style"... Well, if you are located just opposite the station maybe you don't have to renovate your hotel every decade...

    « Very nice »

    We stayed for a weekend this winter. Great staff, very friendly, no problems getting an extra bed (I have 3 children). Both the kids and me enjoyed the pool and the sauna, wonderful when you have been sking all day.

    « More than OK »

    Usually with Best Western hotels, you get a good stay with no frills. So is the case with BW Gustaf Wasa as well. Modern/half modern decor/furnishing. Clean, comfy beds, large breakfast. Nice reception area with "self service" fridge bar - actually much nicer than mini bars on the room (which are disappearing more and more). Although a little bit on the edge of the town centre, it's convenient enough - Borlänge is not very big... And there's plenty of parking space. All for a very fair price. If you need to stop over in Borlänge, this hotel supplies a good accomodation for a night or two.

    « Good hotel, no pool! »

    We stayed in the Wasa during a ski weekend in nearby Romme. The hotel in itself is nice and clean although the rooms are in desperate need of refurbishment. The hotel details on the site claim that there is an indoor /outdoor pool, but be warned this is not true. After finding the steam room that also had a hot tub I checked with reception who confirmed 'no pool'. This was not a disaster as the rest of the stay was still very pleasant, finished off by a fantastic breakfast! If I were in the area again I would probably go back.

    « Comfortable stay. Good breakfast! »

    The reception staff were friendly and efficient and check in/out was a breeze. The was perhaps not the most modern in terms of interior design but it was clean and quiet with a comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good and I left fuller than I intended.

    « One night »

    The hotel is in the center of Borlange so its easy to go everywhere. Interior of hotel is, how to say, quite strange. Combination of rustical and modern parts is not so pretty and some parts were under construction. The room was tiny. I did not expected dance hall but its really small. But interior was comfy - flat tv, fluffy bed, small table and chair. Temperature was okay, also the breakfast (continental) was great. One thing i didnt like - the curtain in shower was old and dirty.

    « Second time »

    Second time stayed on this chabby-balticum joint. The feeling from east germany early 80-t is close. First stayed dec 2012 and now on work this september. Rooms renoveted thats a big plus. But the breakfest studio is really depressing and the olerys restaurang in the same buliding is ok. But the feeling is depressing. The staff is sometimes ok sometimes strange also. Sorry to say but Falun Best Western has loads of potential and things to work on. Not sure that i would recommend this, depends alot on the price i guess.

    « Comfortable hotell »

    A wonderful hotel for both pleasure and business. It is fresh and clean and the staff are always nice and helpful. Parking is easy outside of the hotel and they have a nice gym, pool and sauna. The breakfast is superior and the US & Mexican restaurant Broken Dreams (connected to hotel) has a very tasty menu. I particularly like the bed comfort at this hotel making it my favorite in the mid of Sweden! // Per

    « Worn »

    It's an ok business hotel. The rooms are dated and worn, the bathroom do the job but the towels are tiny. Breakfast is usual Scandinavian affair. The gym is not bad for a BW. The rest of the hotel is worn and frayed, that said some renovation started while I was there, so maybe improvement is on the way.

    « Nice hotel »

    Hotel location to town was perfect walking distance! Rooms were fine, no issues! Dinner wasn't amazing, but breakfast was good! Had tea and coffee facilities in reception, including biscuits! Location to train station is right across the road easy!

    « Nice, clean, friendly »

    Welcoming staff. Good breakfast. The hotel is clean and tidy but needs a facelift. I would have appreciated either a bigger towel or an extra one. The attached restaurant Broken Dreams, is not recommended. Low value of money and meager menu. There are better places out on the town, or a burger joint.

    « Came to ski found a nice relax »

    Nice hotell for weekend in Borlänge. I came with family to ski in Romme just outside the town. We appriciated a nice resturant and a brand new relax department. Both new rooms and som in older style. Ask for new rooms when booking. realy comfortable king size beds in the new room.

    « Better management is needed. »

    We were travelling from Oslo to Gävle in Sweden on the day before Midsummer, a day with strong traffic. We therefore chose to drive via Borlange in order to avoid too much stress on the road. We chose the Best Western Gustav Wasa.The hotel was awarded for its architecture. By all means, it is well deserved. However, already before entering the front door you see that the most important first impression is shabby. Our room was clean, actually no further complaints, but you have this feeling it just is a run-down place. The Wasa restaurant is closed at least it got some furnitures which are not fitting in. The pool was closed as under construction. The water basin in the garden wasn`t cleaned for years, I guess. The other restaurant was obviously outsourced as the staff didn`t even know when breakfast was served. It was a kind of a Western saloon and they managed well. People and ofcourse families seemed to enjoy their food and the entire atmosphere, and so did my wife and myself. The breakfast is probably the reason for blaming for bad management. I do not want to be too picky, but it would extend this report out of proportions and this just after a one nights stay. Again, it could be a very nice hotel if management would look to details. You are staying in hotel from the mid-80ies and almost nothing has happened since a part from the flat tv which was placed on the wall in front of the beds - I would have gone for a smarter placement. Now, the rate they were asking for was in compliance with what we experienced. I think, the people from Best Western should talk to the hotel management.

    « Good but not much on »

    We booked a trip to Darlana from Stockholm for Midsommer. Of course the hotel was not going to be that busy but I feel that the hotel did not really cater for any guests that were staying there. For the three days that we spent there the hotel bar and restaurant were closed. When asked if we could get anything to eat the reply was "There is an Indian restaurant open somewhere". Second night we ended up going to the local bar which was nice. Also there was a sign on the door of the Swimming Pools saying "Open early June". Despite it being June 21 it was still not open.

    « Nice quiet hotel »

    Easy to park and across the street from the train station, if you travel by train. Small but nice hotel rooms. Good price for the quality of service. Very good included breakfast. My preferred hotel at Borlänge.

    « Only good to say »

    Stayed 1 night at this hotel - 2 couples, 2 rooms. We found it great in every way. Front desk staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The rooms were decent size and clean, comfortable. The included breakfast buffet was great, lots of choice and well presented. We had dinner at the restaurant, and enjoyed the atmosphere and food very much. Very much an American music theme to the decor. The lobby area was spacious, with seating and a TV, and free coffee and tea available. The free WiFi also worked perfectly via a supplied password... an important feature when you want to Skype home. Overall, I would return here if my travels took me back.

    « A Night in Borlange »

    I stayed here for one night in May. It is very convenient for the railway station, but expensive by UK standards at £85.46 a night. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, spoke good English, and even made some fresh coffee. As their restaurant was not open they recommended an Italian restaurant just round the corner and this was excellent, both for the food, service and value for money. Breakfast was well up to Best Western standards.
