In trying to get a balance between price and convenience it sometimes doesn't work and this was one of those times. The hotel is on the opposite side of the town centre, which was much bigger than we expected so it proved to be a longer walk than expecteded from the station. If you arrive by train and are staying... More

A very centrally located hotel where I parked in Gallerian Nian just across the street so access was just a short distance away. The room is as usual at Best Western, clean and tidy, but nothing special. A bit cold though but there was a freeze outside so that might have been the reason. The bed was very good and... More

Everything is just fine as one would expect from a Best Western hotel. The staff is pleasant, the room is clean and nice. The only minus is that the breakfast is not of that Best Western standard, I lacked some kind of salmon, and the choice of fruits was rather poor.

This was a last minute lay over. Thankful for availablility after traveling for more than 24 hours. Reception staff was kind, friendly and helpful. Price was a little high for what the size. The room was compact, clean, fresh and updated. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was very good; food was fresh, plenty variety and well stocked.

You get what you pay for. This hotel has a superb location but very small rooms. If you have two large suitcases you will have space problems. For one night its location and the price is very good. Breakfast was rich and fresh. Can be recommended for a short stay in Gävle. Reception area is somewhat dull

I found Hotel City by chance when the reception of the hotel I'd pre-booked was closed when I arrived at 20.30. Locals directed me to it with the insouciance that suggests this is a regular occurrence. Once I saw it was a Best Western I felt comfortable because I used to stay frequently in that organisation's hotels at one time.... More

The room was appropriate and good business hotel standard. Clean and functional but not extraordinary. The breakfast was basic swedish standard, a plus is that you can make your own fresh orange juice.

Booked for four nights, but stayed just one. Staff good and friendly but the hotel was poor. "On site parking" means in a shopping centre a couple of blocks away. Rooms small with no space to move around. No facility for coffee making in room but available in lobby.

So, a hotel that might be OK for a night or two I guess... But... I try to be kind in my opinion about hotels here... I think that the least a paying customer can expect is a clean room. Since this was not the case I feel inclined to put a worse grade here. There were stains on the... More

Stepped for a one night stay over on my way north as i was travelling by motorbike. A central city hotel with access to local shopping and plenty of restaurants - ideal for a city layover. I had a single room with shared bathroom but the hotel was empty so that was not a problem. Lots to do in the... More
