We are just back from spending 3 nights at this lovely hotel. We were upgraded on arrival to a Junior Suite which was great. The room was huge, comfortable single beds, great shower and everything spotlessly clean. We did not like the coffee machine (personal choice) but the girls at Reception gave us a kettle which was good. Breakfast was...

All the staff members that we came in contact with we're very happy and helpful. The hotel's appearance was bright and welcoming. Our room on the fifth floor was very comfortable and clean with lovely light decor. We especially liked the complimentary transport tickets we had for the time we stayed at the hotel. Not having to pay for transport...

Set on the edge of the old town, the location is good for exploring. Trams and buses are right outside. The rooms are modern and spacious and the bed is very comfortable. You can hear traffic noise outside and if you turn the bathroom light on in the night, it illuminates the whole room. Breakfast has a modest selection but...

It is outside the old city, but just right outside, and it is easy and quick to take a tram in. The accommodations were amazing, very comfortable bed, slippers, perfectly heated, fridge, really nice lights etc. Service could not be...

We arrived early after disembarking from a luxury river cruise, but we didn't feel like we left luxury behind. The front desk staff got us into our room early and upgraded us. The room was very spacious and modern. The complementary transportation passes were a nice perk. We rode the circular route around the city center (#15/16) to get our...

Good clean hotel with helpful friendly staff. Coffee making facilities in the room and a simple but good breakfast Buffett. It's very close to the city centre with good selection of restaraunts and sights. Check out the local delicacy called Lackerlii at the Lackerlii Huus.

For breakfast you can get the best cappucino! The bread is fresh and crunchy. It is good with a wide variety of cheese. Friendly service. Also the rooms are good and everything works. There are good restaurants nearby.
