    « Drive through beautiful and charming Kalmar »

    Super friendly personnel, charming hotel and area around it, very central. Cheap parking just around the corner. The room was just big enough, the bathroom was on the small side but fresh and functional (thumbs up for the heated floor!). The bed was big enough and very comfortable. The jacuzzi and sauna facilities were really good, extra points for the long open hours (till 11pm on weekends!). The breakfast was good but most of the cooked dishes (pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs etc) finished quite quickly and the service was rather slow (maybe good to hire extra set of hands on weekends?) :) Overall we were happy with our stay, recommending this hotel :)

    « Kalmar, a Swedish pearl »

    We visited Kalmar for 24h and had a great experience. Staying at this hotel we were in the middle of everything. Lots of restaurants, close to the harbor and the sea. The hotel was very nice, although somewhat noisy around midnight, probably due to the Kalmar town party that started the Friday we arrived.

    « Service saves the visit »

    On the plus side: great service, good location and nice breakfast. On the down side: dreadful view, food smell in the rooms and price too high for what you get. Yes this is the high season, but for a minimal price difference you can get a better room elsewhere. The smiles from the reception gives this three stars instead of two.

    « Extended weekend in Kalmar »

    I visited this hotel while participating in a sports happening in Kalmar. The hotel is small and functions quite well. The staff is friendly and they try to make you feel welcome. The rooms are normal size, the furniture is nothing special but works OK. The beds are nice and the softness in different parts of the bed can be adjusted electronically. A variety of pillows is offered for your use (back sleepers, stomach sleepers, side sleepers, memory foam etc). The barhroom is nice and the towels are good. This hotel has a good breakfast with a large variety to choose from. I had dinner twice from a buffet. Also this food was nice. The hotel is located in the center at a walking distance to the different attractions.

    « Good location, but small facilities and hard to sleep »

    Check-in was friendly and efficient and we were in the room in no-time. The room was small, even by swedish standards, with a slighly dated interior and a claustrophobic bathroom. A proper shower was a plus. There is free "mycloud" wifi available, but it won't let you connect to some VPN servers, so bear that in mind if you're thinking of doing a few minutes of work in your room. I couldn't sleep until 1 am, which was when the nearby pub closed, due to the drunk screaming people on the street outside. I took this up with the front desk upon checking out and got a shrug and a "yes, that'll be the student pub". The noise problem alone will make me consider other lodging options next time I'm in Kalmar. I'm surprised that management has not addressed this issue with the other establishments, as I'm sure I'm not the first customer they'll lose. Breakfast had the bare minimums, but no espresso machine that I could see. Also, if you're eating at peak hours, you may have a hard time finding your own table.

    « Nice hotel in Kalmar, city centre »

    Great hotel. If you arrive by train, he hotel is in a walking distance, pebbled streets so you need extra effort to move about your suitcase. The hotel is near shops and restaurants you can walk about the area. In particular the hotel is clean and comfortable. The room has a nice size just enough to move about. The best part is that the hotel has a sauna and jacuzzi opened until 11pm, so bring your bathing suit. Great to relax and end the day. Breakfast has a nice assortment of food and staff are very helpful with tips and recommendations. I would definitely go back.

    « "Best(!)" in city? »

    Among the other options, you have no better choice actually in this region. This is a small village and i would not expect more. Breakfast buffet is extremely low class where i had real concerns for hygiene.

    « Good hotel »

    Good hotel in the center of town. Clean rooms and nice staff. Even the restaurant (bistro 5) is quite good. Good breakfast. Occasionally with salmon. Hotel has own sauna and use of a sport facility in the street. Parking (not for free) in the parking under the hotel.

    « Decent rooms good breakfast »

    The rooms here are clean and tidy. Facilities are limited to a sauna and a jacuzzi. Best part here: the very large and healthy breakfast options. From everything to put in your yoghurt to avocado's. Super experience, too bad i was here on business and i could not enjoy the breakfast for very long

    « A suitable place to stay. »

    This is a good place to stay should want to be in the charming downtown area and not far from the train station. Not bad but nothing outstanding either. When I first went in the lady at the desk asked if I had a reservation, I told her yes and gave her the booking number. She replied that is not a number associated with this hotel. She then looked up my name and said you must have booked through a booking agency, eventually found my reservation and let me in. The rooms are clean and sufficient. Should you not want get charged for parking just find a place on the street and park, as it seemed a rather safe town. Should you walk around the town you will plenty of restaurants to pick from and it is nice town to walk around in.

    « Fine for a couple of nights. »

    The hotel was in a central but quiet position and had underground car parking. Our room, though quite small, was adequate and similar for the bathroom. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. I only gave this hotel 3 stars partly because of the small room but mainly because of the cramped dining room. We only had breakfast there which was fine, but there were simply not enough tables to accommodate everyone staying there. Fortunately the weather during our stay was excellent which meant that several people made use of the outside eating area (on the street) which left more room inside. It wasn't a major problem but it didn't make for a very relaxed breakfast experience. Having said all that I would stay here again if in the area.

    « Staying in Kalmar »

    We found this hotel to be a great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's located in an area close to what is best described as an old village in a new city. There was lots of shopping (everything under the sun) and all most any kind of restaruant you could need. Hotel was resonable and very nice for a good price well at least in March when wewere there. Also within walking distance of the Kalmar castle which was really exciting to tour. Lots of great history there and within 50 miles. Kings, queens vikings and castles. A must see area

    « Terrible food »

    + nice relaxing area + polite and friendly reception staff - TERRIBLE FOOD!! - had to wait 45 min for it - only offering sweets when notified about the poor food quality Will be back for relaxing maybe, but i would never eat there again! I would rather go to McDonalds, and that says a LOT!

    « Very Pleasent Stay. Beatyfull City »

    Was on a Training Course in Kalmar. I fell in love with the city. The Hotel and staff and food was tops. The beer is just very expensive R160. No not a six pack a GLAS (maybe I'm just a cheap skate.) Every thing is close to the Hotel. Great nightlife. The station is walking distance from hotel.

    « Nice hotel in the heart of the city »

    Kalmar people say is pretty lively during high season, in late September it is not. It's a neat and sleepy town worth a chilling stay - same is the hotel. Which I can fully recommend. Rooms are not new but clean, equipped with TV, hairdryer and a kettle plus instant tea, coffee and chocolate bags. The room I had had a shower, no bathtub, mini bar with a small complementary bottle of water. Free wifi available in lobby and room. Staff was friendly. Breakfast with a lot of choices but no salmon. The hotel has a Sauna and a whirpool opend until 11pm which I found generous. Except the sauna startetd cooling down early enough to be cold at 11, this is something to be kept in mind. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, restaurants and shops in walking distance. Car parking in the street, the hotel has no own parking lot. We had no problem to find a close spot without a meter. One more good thing. If you like jogging, aim for the city's fortress at the seaside and enjoy a beautiful run through the woods close to the beach.

    « The parking is not that bad »

    Clean, basic, fairly easy to find. Room was quiet breakfast ok. Really nothing noteworthy one way or the other. Town itself easy to poke around in. Basically a stop in the road. 200 characters? I'll never make it?

    « Great hotel with good location »

    We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the experience. The room was pretty large and the bathroom was up-to-date. The free breakfast was great with a variety of different options and it was also possible to order additional items that weren't on the buffet (for example oatmeal).

    « Solid hotel »

    Stayed 1 night in July 2015. A good solid hotel- excellent location, decent varied breakfast, good sized rooms with lots of space for luggage. Large sauna and hot tub to use on Level 1 (slightly dated but in good working order). Gym available to use but it is in the building opposite. Wifi worked consistently and was fast.
