I spent almost a week at Rixwell Olevi Hotel on an autumn vacation. My room was in an annex across a small courtyard. The room was cosy and spacious. The was no AC, but it had windows. The bath room was spacious and had a bath tub. The room is not luxury, but quit alright. The room was cleaned every...

Hidden at the bottom of some steep steps is Olevi Residents. The restaurant is nicely decorated and candlelit. The waiter was very pleasant and the service as quick as you'd expect if the food is all cooked fresh. We had cheese balls and dumplings to share and then Rissoto and Chicken schnitzel. All served hot and very tasty. Would recommend....

We chose this hotel after seeing their websites. Lovely building from the 14. th century with the perfect location in the Old town. This hotel is not for guests with bad feet because there is no lift. Our room was on the first level and it was a spacious double bed room with a good bathroom. Staff were polite and...

Our room, across a court yard was comfortable and warm, only disadvantage was no hanging space. However, the bathroom which had lovely under floor heating sported...

The hotel is quite cheap despite the good central location. That's all about positive things in this Hotel. For the rest the rooms are awful, and quite dirty. The smell inside is disgusting like somebody just finished to ate gorgonzola cheese and spread it on the walls. The receptionist should remember she is working in a touristic business not in...

I'm glad I didn't read the grim reviews of this ancient, funky and sometimes confusing hotel. Or I would have found somewhere more conventional to lay my head ... and would thereby have missed a treat. Yes, it has many stairs, steps - and even a trip across a freezing courtyard for some guests to contend with. No, there is...

Arrived at the hotel while the receptionist was on the phone, we waited a long time stood in the lobby. The bell boy was sat waiting and after a while he spoke to the receptionist. I guess he told her we wanted to check in because she put the phone down and then checked us in. I tried to say...

A cozy hotel, very centrally located in the old city. However, the hotel is worn and a bit of renovation would not hurt. The breakfast is a simple buffet, type two kinds of bread, cheese, ham, yogurt, eggs, bacon and coffee. Restaurant staff are very nice and helpful. The same can not be said of all the front desk staff....
