    « Very pleasant stay! »

    This hotel has provided a very good base to relax and have a good sleep. The rooms are spotless clean and the rooms has all necessary equipment. The reception are very helpful and the breakfast is outstanding! I highly recommend.

    « My second home for almost 6 years »

    I stayed at this hotel almost every week for at least one night. It was my second home. Lovely hotel with great standard. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Good restaurant, centrally located in Jönköping. walking street just 2 minutes walk away. Gym, shopping and cafes all around the corner. I will definitely recommend this hotel for families, business and couples visitors.

    « Spotless.... »

    The hotels reception, main bar area is really nice. It creates a warm, relaxing atmosphere. My room was pretty basic, but did have coffee making facilities. The restaurant was efficient enough, l tried a beef fajita which was suprisingly better than expected. Everywhere was spotlessly clean! I also used the small fitness room available.

    « good standard »

    Super nice room. High standard in room and the rest of the hotel. Good air in konference room. Central area of Jönköping. They didn't have a good orange juice in the bar but the best to breakfasts. Great stay there.

    « Good stay »

    A very nice new looking hotel. The staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. The room was very clean and modernly furnished. The shower was lovely. The bar was open until late, which was a bonus.

    « Best hotel in town »

    Very friendly staff. The wedding suite is the best hotel room I ever visited. The breakfast is served in the restaurant area which have a nice atmosphere. Everything is clean and the whole hotel feels newly renovated.

    « Vey Nice Hotel »

    Never expected to find myself in Jonkoping, Sweden but then my son decided to marry a Swedish girl and this lovely town is her home town. So this very nice, modestly priced hotel became our home for several days. It is conveniently located and the staff was great.

    « Helpful and friendly »

    As with all best westerns we've stayed in the staff here were efficient, friendly and helpful. We stayed for one night as a stop over between Stockholm and Malmö. Beds were comfortable, rooms clean. We ate in the restaurant and as it was a Wednesday they had a bbq on the terrace which was excellent. The room was air conditioned but it was noisy so we opened the window instead. Bathroom seemed fairly newly fitted. Not the best fitting I've seen but did the job. They have a garage and its huge so our high car with roofbox fitted in. Would recommend and stay again.

    « Night from home.. »

    Everything was just perfect! The room, the people in the reception ! The breakfast had Everything we wanted. The location and that the room had AC.. Very well placed near Everything..and the beds were comfortable .

    « Great location, wifi, front desk. Good value, parking »

    2 nights early July. Fairly modern, very clean and quiet, has secure onsite (fee) parking for small cars**, and helpful front desk (excellent English). Strong reliable free wifi. Nice breakfast buffet with more items than most hotels in this category?note this room is sunken by 1 step down. Excellent location - on east side of canal. If walking: 30 seconds to ATM, 1 minute to upscale Lake Munksjon restaurants, 2 to 5 minutes to many good restaurants on the east side of the canal and currency exchange and popular nightly street food on canal, 5 minutes to Lake Vattern shoreline restaurants, 10 minutes to several great restaurants and ICA Grocery on west side of canal, 15 to 20 minutes to Safety Match Museum (worthwhile!). For quiet room, ask for upper floors away from commotion when large tour groups come in. My room had a kettle, frig, and good desk top with outlets. The room was adequately sized and comfortable enough for one person for a couple nights, but the longer I stayed the more cramped I felt. The bathroom was gleaming with new plumbing fixtures, but noticeably cramped even for one person. Think: micro. Upscale but micro. The windows opened directly onto a narrow flat roof that could have allowed unwanted intrusion, so I kept them closed. I would stay here again, but would be curious about other hotels in the area if room and bathroom were more spacious. In all other ways, the John Bauer is very enjoyable and accommodating. **If arriving by car: turn off the through-lane onto the separate two-way (?bus?) lane directly in front of the hotel, and pull up close directly in front of the hotel garage door ? garage doors open inward. Check-in, then immediately move your car into the garage. If your car is larger than compact, check the garage spacing first ? parking is very tight! But it's the only parking near the hotel that I know of.

    « Good hotel and restaurant »

    We stayed here overnight, as in Best Western everything was ok, more or less standard. Room was comfortable, quite spacious. Employees professional. The restaurant served surprisingly good diners and was complete. PriceWaterhouse level Scandinavian. Breakfast was very well arranged and had a broad choice to offer.

    « Good stay in Jönköping »

    We really enjoyed the stay, very nice room, good breakfast, very well placed to be able to roam around the city center, free covered parking. Internet's signal a bit low to use in some parts of the room.

    « Sensibly priced and very good location. »

    The beds are very comfortable, and whilst we didn't have a view from the room, it was very light and pleasant. Clean and tidy, and the mini bar was not stocked with all sorts of stuff, just water. There is a good bar in the hotel though. Hotel restaurant is closed on Sundays, but plenty of places to find a good meal in town though. There was a bit of noise in the hallway, but we were staying when there was a sports event on and a lot of early risers that day. Not problematic, and possibly not atypical. I would stay here again. Parking was available for SEK130 a day. Very handy and not expensive.

    « Al ok »

    Parking really only available in their pay carpark. Staff friendly and efficient. Room was really compact and bit on the hot side. It was a bit on the noisy side at night, you could hear other guests. The breakfast was very good.

    « Extraordinary good breakfast »

    Nice hotel in city centre. Everything is neat and tidy. Professional staff makes your stay easy. Reasonable prices. Don't miss the breakfast! Just excellent cooked. One of the best breakfast buffets for a very long time! Everything is absolutely fresh and replenishments so swift, that it's hardly noticed. I'll be back.

    « Nice place »

    I had a nice room with view over the lake. This is a nice hotel with modern design, good beds, nothing to complain about. If anything I found the breakfast slightly disapointing - but then I am special... Guys, just modernise your cerial section and you are not just good, but wonderful!

    « Everything was awesome »

    Superb staff, breakfast and accommodation! An amazing stay, I was looked after from the moment I arrived to the time I left. The breakfast left me wanting nothing, with the morning staff were full of smiles and happy to help. Would recommend to anyone!

    « Extra care and quality food »

    Friendly and service minded staff, relaxed, local organic quality food. Comfortable bed, comfortable sofa & chair, nicely decorated room. Parking in house. Central location. Breakfast as it should be, a mixture between healthy homemade bread and salad etc and also bacon & eggs.

    « Great place to stay if you are travelling around »

    Hotel is situated in the center and has a private parking for their guests. Nice bar on the level above the reception which makes the place unique. The rooms are big and silent, it had all accommodation you need Very good breakfast in the morning

    « Good hotel, lived up to expectations »

    Nice and big room which included a large sofa and a TV, good bed, wifi, really good hotell breakfast. Really nothing to complain at. Did not try the TV, mini-bar or room service but I am sure that works as well.

    « Good »

    Stayed there for one night. Friendly staff and good breakfast also if you have allergies. The bar on the 1st floor isn't too loud. Located in a beautiful lake area. Will definitely go for a lake view room next time

    « Simple as it is »

    Represents perfectly the simply style of the scandinavian hotels. Simple services, not too much to see. The hotel is good basicly for business travellers to overnight. Anyway, one of the best in the town.

    « Very enjoyable stay »

    I stayed in this hotel whilst attending a conference at the University; it was recommended by the conference organisers and I was certainly not disappointed. It faces the lake and is just round the corner from the modern shopping centre as well as being only a ten minute walk from the University. The hotel is very modern and functional but with a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. In my experience, single rooms are often little more than cupboards but mine was quite spacious with a very comfortable bed and attractive modern furnishings. There was a fridge/mini bar, plenty of electric sockets and a decent full length mirror. The bathroom was small but absolutely gleamed with a really good shower and basic toiletries as well as good thick towels. Breakfast was an absolutely magnificent buffet and I also ate in the restaurant a couple of evenings. The food was very good indeed with very polite and efficient service albeit a little expensive. There were no drinks making facilities in the bedrooms but free coffee/tea/ chocolate was available all day in a little bar. There was a small gym which I didn't have time to use. Above all, all the staff were friendly and very helpful - all spoke excellent English. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Good Stop Over »

    Stayed here one night on our way down to the south, this is very well situated if you want quick access to a number of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The Staff was very friendly and helpful at check-in, and the room was normal good Scandinavian standard. Clean and comfortable. No Safe in the room is the only downside I would mention. Breakfast was nice, a very cramped serving area when you have a full tourist bus dinning with you, but once they left there was plenty of space and the food selection was good.

    « Very nice »

    High quality hotel with very nice and clean room. Breakfast was really good. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our only complaints are that the price is a bit too expensive, and that there is not really any view to the lake from 2nd floor family room, as promised.

    « Modern design hotel »

    Good location, spacious room, very good wifi connection. The hotel is located in what seems to be an entirely new and trendy part of town. What was special is that our dog had its own spacious ?bed? with a bag saying ?V.I.D - Very Important Dog? containg dog delicacies, a small towel and plastic bag - star treatment!

    « oliver »

    very good hotel very central in the city close to the shopping area hotel is very nice inside and we got an upgrade to a junior suite which is in the top floor with a nice view. breakfast is very good as well

    « Nice hotel and good location »

    Stayed there with my wife and 2 year old daughter in a room with a double bed and a single bed. We also got a baby cot in our room, which left little space when in use. The room was fine and bathroom also, but not very modern, but did it's purpose. The room had minibar/refridgerator which was good. (missing at another hotel during same trip) Breakfast was OK, not the biggest selection though. Crowded at times where the food was placed. Check-in and check-out was smooth.
