The hotel was a surprise, small and cosy yet offering a lot incl. an Irish pub with live music. Nice place to have a good time with my family. Genuinely friendly staff. If there is something negative to say it would be the lack of own parking space, however there was plenty of parking nearby both outdoor as well as...

Old stains on the floor and only had one small towel for my hands. When I told the reception staff about that she was absolutely clueless and I had to point...

We booked 5 rooms and one was situated to the front of the hotel over a bar, which was quite noisy until the early hours. The younger members of our group had this room which was very spacious and although they had...

I really enjoyed my stay here. I loved the town, the location, and the hotel was great. Everything was clean and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. I found it cozy and quiet.

“Our room facing the townwall was very quiet.”

“On thursdays nights, ask for a room higher than 2nd floor and towards the channel on the back-side of the hotel. On this evening, the bar/restaurant next door hosts a typical Swedish event which is kind of a Jeopardy game. Lot's of loud music and happy people :-)”

“Request a Room in a quiet area, and on the top floors, if you arrive on a Friday or Saturday and don't want to be disturbed by the Nightclub.”

“Ask for a room towards the alley, those are likely to be far more quit than those towards the street with the restaurants and the club. Maybe it could also be wise to avoid the first floor.”
