I had a single room with a sofa bed for my 5 yr old. It was a very small room, but it was a single. No problem for the two of us. It had been a couple of very warm days and the room was very, very hot. It was like a steam cooker in there. I couldn`t find the air condition button, so I went down to reception where I was told that there was no individual regulation of the ventilation system in the rooms. So, nothing to do about the room`s temperature except opening a window, which we did, and it helped a little, but not enough to make it a comfortable night.
Very friendly staff in the reception. They were all smiles and happy to help with directions and restaurant choices.
The room (apart from being very hot) had comfortable beds and very nice pillows. It looked like ut had been newly renovated (well done, too), so I was quite surprised to see an old fashioned, tiny TV in there. Bathroom was small, but very clean. Good shower. No toiletries (apart from hand soap and shower gel in a dispenser), so bring your own.
The location was good, in the center of the town, but it also makes it harder to park. After three rounds around in the town (my GPS led us astray), we eventually found the main entrance to the hotel and found a place to park while asking for the hotel`s parking lot. It was in the lower floor of a garage belonging to a shopping center near by. No signs.. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from Astrid Lindgren`s world, 20 minutes if you have small children.
Breakfast was adequate, but not more than that either, judging from a Scandinavian point of view.
All in all, a good hotel with excellent staff in a town almost entirely build up around the Astrid Lindgren`s world.
