"Lovely hotel in a good location."

fatscarv, Maidstone, United Kingdom 06/05/2019

The hotel is very well located and I was lucky enough to have a room with a view to the water. The bed is comfortable, very clean and I loved the chocolates on the bed every night. It put a smile on my face and made my day! The only negative about the room was the shower. I had an old bath tub with the shower and after washing hair there was more water on the floor than anywhere else. The breakfast was amazing with so much to choose. It will easily suit everybody! Also, you can have dinner at the hotel but it is a short walk to lots of restaurants and a good walk along the water.The staff were also very friendly and very helpful. Loved all the art work in the hotel! I would highly recommend it.

"Excellent choice for Jönköping"

Climber208987, Kokkedal, Denmark 06/05/2019

Fresh clean room. Breakfast is very extense. Tables with streetview are very nice. The garage is tiny, so do not come in a big 4x4 Young, friendly and very competent staff. Location right in the town center.

"Excellent service and great equipment "

"Great place in Jönköping"

User 18/04/2019

Very good place: location, reception, cleanliness, breakfast, wifi, and even price (!!) were very good. It was just too short, because I spent just 2 nights for a conference at the local university. I recommend it.

"The bed"

Inspire09390694633, Umea, Sweden 12/04/2019

Nice location close to the water and the city center. Great views, Nice and friendly staff. The breakfast fast really good. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable, but it was placed really strange. Like 40cm from the window. So it was space between the bed and window but it could not be used for much. Overall great but the bed placement..

"Most satisfied but still expected some improvement .."

GrandTour06405938653, Frankfurt, Germany 09/04/2019

Hotel has been improved with new and modern interior with renovation. I miss a small fridge from the past .. And there is still much dust from bed clothes such as, blanket and .. for the rest.. still satisfied.

"Excellent!"

User 08/04/2019

I was staying 2 nights and I must say the cleaning, facilities, breakfast and service was all excellent! The single room was quiet and had everything that I needed. The distance to other shops nearby is short.

The John Bauer is a home away from home. Very friendly and warm staff that provide the best of service. There is not a negative aspect of the hotel that can be mentioned. From the food, atmosphere, reception, to the cleanliness its ALL GREAT. If you are visiting from the states don't look any further. The hotel is located in the town with access to everything. The restaurant and bar are top quality. The breakfast is a REAL BREAKFAST. Its healthy oriented buffet with a large variety of fresh food. Fruit, meats, cheese, eggs, yogurt, fresh juices, breads, and more. All freshly prepared, no powered eggs here. The breakfast is included in the stay and would easily be $20 each at any restaurant. The staff will go out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible. Don't pass it up.

"Old and out of shape bathroom. Crowded garage"

Sherpa17420693636, Orebro, Sweden 04/04/2019

Friendly staff, good drinks and delicious breakfast. In the middle of the town, close to everything. The room itself was nice, modern and clean. But: the bathroom was old and in bad shape. On the booking site shows nice and newly renovated ones, but I got one from the late 90`s. The hotel manager´s answer was "going to be renovated, but there are plenty other rooms and categories to choose until then". I am not sure if that is the right attitude, since according to the website the hotel is newly renovated. If I knew, that the bathroom is so creepy I would have never booked this hotel. The other issue was the parking. I booked and payed a parking spot as it is recommended on the hotels website, but in the end I didn't get any place on the evening. For the staff´s recommendation I parked on the side of the garage. These issues made me feel fooled, because I didn't get what I paid for. And as an overall impression it doesn't feel like a 4 star hotel.

Getaway61848667218, Berlin, Germany 26/03/2019

(++) Very friendly and helpful staff! Spacous comfortable room, nicely equipped. Big and diverse breakfast buffet that leaves nothing to be desired. Garage for the car directly next to hotel (for additional charge of 130 SEK). Dog-friendly hotel (no additional charge for the dog). (-) Great crowd at the breakfast buffet. In the evening we could hear another dog barking and the music from the bar through the walls.

"A perfect Place to stay."

The hotel and room was over alll perfect. The room was big and the view over the lake was just perfect. The crew was super helpful and friendly. The breakfast was really delicious. Lot to choose between. And the room was really clean. A stay on the hotel is really highly recommended.

Very good situated in the heart of Jönköping. Has own parking garage (Not easy to find/enter: have to drive on bus lane) Rooms not big but has to lounge chairs plus one desk chair. In our room bathroom seemed to have been renovated.

Perfect location, easy to find and good parking space. The room wasn't clean and they haven't got the information from Booking.com that it was a child included in our booking. They said they should make a third bed ready when we were outside but they never did.

I've little hotel set on the main road, the main checking in area is nice with cool art work dotted about and comfy seat etc. Check in was nice and easy only drama was the booked me and my work mate in a room with a double bed. The hotel sorted fast and gave us a few beers tokens which was great.. breakfast is good lots of choice and nice and fresh which makes a change to some of the best western hotels I have stayed in. I would say the gym needs a few more things but in the real world do many people use it. Tge hotel Over all friendly staff, clean hotel with a nice little vibe. You can park under ground can be tight. Loads of places to eat near by...

Anu P, Espoo, Finland 14/07/2018

This is a hotel I can wholeheartedly recommend! Arrived at 4.30 am after a 15 hour car drive from Dortmund, Germany. The guy at the reception could have not been nicer. When I asked him if the hotel room had water he went to get a cold bottle for me just to be sure. When I asked what time the check out was, he offered to postpone it. Brilliant, proactive service! The hotel seems to be quite new and the single room was a nice size with a desk. The shower was really good with adequate water pressure. Had it also had an iron and an ironing board, it would have been 100% perfect. Breakfast was included and looked very good with a lot of fresh produce. There is a nice terrace outside the hotel with glass ceilings. Also a covered terrace for smokers. The hotel offers its own garage for parking (SEK 130 / night).

We stayed here 4 nights during June, with excellent service from the welcoming staff throughout. We had an excellent suite with a bedroom, a second private sleeping area, and a day bed sofa, giving us room to spread out as we wished. Convenient on site parking, good breakfast, and close to many excellent restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

A very nice hotel with great service. Rooms were nice. It was a bit difficult to find the hotel by car and also to get to the parking. Right in the center with a lot of restaurants around. Very busy at breakfast with limited seating.

Meta888, Halmstad, Sweden 03/06/2018

Centrally located hotel with garage. I first got a room on the second floor, it was very dark with a window facing the outside bar area. It was not possible to regulate the heat in the room which was very warm and I did not feel comfortable sleeping with an open window when people could walk right outside. I spoke to the receptionist who was very friendly and serviceminded. I got another room on the fifth floor where it was safe to sleep with an open window. This room was much nicer. Comfortable bed. Good breakfast.

"Perfect location with private parking"

Bibliotekarien, Sweden 17/04/2018

I admit I had too high expectations on this hotel after reading all the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor. Don't get me wrong, the stay was OK in every way, but I would have thought the room standard &c would be higher. I stayed for two nights in a single room. The bed was too hard for me and I didn't sleep well the first night. Curtains could not be drawn over the entire window. What I did like about the room was the big desk, which made it easy and comfortable to work for a few hours. Breakfast was lovely with a variety of healthy choices - which I had every intention of trying out, until I found the waffles :-) Also nice to find lots of fruit, even more unusual sorts like passion fruit - yum, yum! Funny thing about the hotel entrance, it smells like horse!?! Or maybe wet dog? This was not a problem for me, I just couldn't figure out why. All in all, this is an alright stay with a great location, but I have a hard time believing it is actually one of the top three hotels in Jönköping (as currently rated by TripAdvisor reviewers).

"Need a decent hotel"

porkman, Iowa 15/04/2018

Traveling through Jonkoping and needed a predictable hotel, settled for this BW. Location was downtown, parking scarce, so had to pay a lot to park at hotel. Room was small, bed was comfortable, shower was hot, view was non-existent. Breakfast was average, but dinner looked better. Good service at desk though. Pretty expensive at $150+.

Jankees R, Vught, The Netherlands 22/03/2018

Nice situated at small lake with a lot of restaurants on walking distance. Nice check in. Room okay. Don't understand why hotels have so low hanging showers. Also the bathroom can need some refurbishment. Breakfast more than okay. Enjoyed the stay and best hotel experience so far in JÖNKÖPING

Katarina F, General Manager at Best Western Plus John Bauer Hotel, responded to this review

"Perfect except the carpets."

4
User 20/01/2018

Everything was very good except very dangerous carpets in the corridors ( I lived on 2nd floor) outside the elevator and to the rooms. The carpets were not flattened out but laid in Waves - very dangerous and risk for falling if persons do not look down on the floor. Most persons do nor look down on the floor when they come out of the elevators but look on the walls to see their roomnumber. I informed the woman who checked me out.

Tine I, Molndal, Sweden 27/12/2017

We were able to check in early and we were greeted w a very welcoming smile and attitude. We had a great welcoming and very warm. Check in was a breeze as was the parking. We had rented a dog room and we were very pleased to see how charming and nice look ok'ing the room was. In the past (*Not at this hotel*) the rooms we had when traveling w our dog were very much dog rooms. The rooms were dirty, run down and very unpleasant looking. Many had a smell but at JB hotel that was not the case. The room was bright, well maintained and the bonus was that they provided a dog bed, treats and a poop bag. We also had bowls for food and water. Our dog was very welcomed in all of the hotel and the staff was great w him and w us. The food was good and the service was good as well. The was a few snaps but it was taken care of in no time. The clerk at the desk was amazing- I wish I would have gotten her name but I missed it. She was great and very helpful! I would go back, and we will go back as I have found Jönköping to be a nice little city.

Excellent personal staff, clean rooms you can choose any room. The hotel is located in the center close to all means of transport. The hotel has a restaurant and the food is very good. As a recommendation, if you spend more time, it might alternate your breakfast, that is, have 2 or 3 variants to alternate In different days. Over all I recommend this hotel.

Surely the best place to stay in Jönköping. Located right in the center at the lake. Delicious breakfast with a very wide offer was a great start of the day. Very nice hotel bar with a possibility to sit outside. We also enjoyed the fall evening with sitting under the warm heaters. The hotel has also a little gym in the basement in case you want to exercise.

Breakfast in Sweden is generally an open sandwich and coffee, hot chocolate or tea. For me and especially when traveling on business I prefer an omelette which gives the energy for day. There was a young chef lady which was so kind and preparing a great tasty omelette and even served the omelette to the table. Thank you so much to the breakfast team making the start of the day so great and feeling like home.

This is a really good hotel in the BW chain. It's not expensive (for Sweden!) but it's clean and comfortable. There's a restaurant, which I didn't try, and a bar, which I did. I took part in the quiz with the Swedes at my table. There is secure parking and free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was very good and included in the price. The hotel is dead centre of town so you don't have to walk too far for other bars and restaurants. My picture shows the waterfront just opposite the hotel.

The hotel is very accommodating with great staff and comfortable rooms. The restaurant has a chef that prepares great meals. Breakfast is all you can imagine. There are 2 full bars with great staff. Located in town within walking distance of everything you need. I have stayed here several times and will always come back. You are treated like family not just a guest. Plan ahead they are booked. Must be because of their great hotel

Having business in the area, booked two nights. Summer period, so the Hotel full and so was the garage. Had to park 200 meters away. Swift check-in, single room with queen size bed. Very clean, fast internet, coffee facilities, big TV and modern rather small bathroom. Small fridge. Bed very comfortable. Great location. Breakfast above average and will be back just for the Bacon. Many children during Holidays. Back if in the area.

Perfect stay for downtown Jönköping Bathtub instead of shower - not my preference Had room in 3rd floor, that is the lowest floor for getting view on the lake ( there is a building inbetween hotel and lake) lake view means also view to main road ( there was not much traffic the time we stayed there)

"Perfect location in nice hotel"

JankanHH, Hua Hin, Thailand 13/07/2017

We came by car and after some trouble in the streets we did find the hotel and the parking garage just left of the entrance to the hotel. Very modern style Clean and nice rooms. Breakfast was nice, wifi was ok but not excellent. Nice outside area for us smoking people in the summer.

"Above my expectations"

5
hannasdeli, Stockholm, Sweden 19/06/2017

I have been visiting Best Western Hotels before and I know what to expect from them. Decent quality and good design for no-frills rooms service that could be better. To my surprise the Best Western in Jönköping turned out to be far above my expectations and one of the best hotels I have visited in Sweden. Important to note: we stayed in the second floor of the hotel, which has been renovated recently. Other floors might be much worse. The location of the hotel is perfect, as it is very central, near to some modern stores with cool architecture and very close to the water. And also close to some shopping streets with very beautiful wooden buildings. A great area all in all. There is a parking in the hotel (130kr a day) but some 100 meters away there is a large public parking for around 100kr per day. The reception was large, fresh and cool. It had a bar and also the hotel restaurant that looked awesome, with some bistro-like decoration and big windows nearly allowing to see the lake. The people working at the reception were super-friendly (like most of the people in that region of Sweden). A great touch in these times was that the reception is open all day long, which gives that extra safety. Our room was, as mentioned, on the second floor towards a small inner patio, not towards the lake. I can only assume the ones towards the lake must have breathtaking views. But the small patio was nice, renovated, with some decoration on the walls and some cool lights and very calm. I guess if you live above the second floor the window would not be directly to the wall... In any case (and I hate hotel windows to interior courts and similar) this was not a problem at all. It felt open and nice. The room had a decent size and had a simple but nice decoration with chipboard furniture with nice design. It did not feel cheap or ugly, just durable. In our case we got a double room with two separate beds. One complain was that between the beds there was a small wooden table that made it very hard to put the two beds together (it was me and my wife)... but the receptionist later told me that the table could be removed for that purpose. I did not manage to. The beds were very comfortable, the room was very clean, a good flat tv, lots of storage space... and there is even two free soda bottles for the guests. I just can say I had a great night of sleep. The bathroom was modern and clean... the only minor minus is the shower, which had one of those plastic doors that close together to avoid the water spreading... not a fan of those to be honest. The breakfast was the usual affair but really well assorted except the orange juice which was very poor. Scrambled, eggs, bacon, meatballs, a few sorts of cheese, fresh fruit, yoghurt, waffles, cream, sill, salmon... Excellent! Another fantastic touch... they had gluten-free bread and muesli and also lactose-free yoghourts and milk. Really good breakfast in a nice room. Totally recommended. So all in all one of the best experiences I have had in a hotel in Sweden, where the quality is sometimes dismal compared to what I am used to in Spain.

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.

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.

Rmackay, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 22/07/2016

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.

"Great location, wifi, front desk. Good value, parking"

Seessee, Boulder, Colorado 20/07/2016

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"

Molen61, Rotterdam, The Netherlands 16/07/2016

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"

Rosa O, Malmö, Sweden 12/07/2016

Kieron V, Oslo, Norway 10/07/2016

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.

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.

Sixty00, Rugby, United Kingdom 18/10/2015

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.

clcroux, Tampere 31/07/2015

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.

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.
