“Good location and friendly staff - very hot rooms”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

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.

Room Tip: Bring a fan if you travel during the summer season.

The hotel is located at rhe central square in Vimmerby, a pitoresque smallish Swedish town. The surroundings are nice and the short distance to "Astrid Lindgrens värld" (Astrid Lindgren's World) an added value. The rooms ate far to small and get rather warm. Breakfast is OK, but not more than that.

Stayed there in autumn holidays (October).
The hotel has a perfect placement, but our room was so far away from reception as it could be.
Nice beds, but too tiny room for a family to stay there.
Too less furnitures as well, 2 chairs, missing table, no wardrobe for hanging clothes.
Staff was very friendly, internet worked ok, but you need to type in username/password each time you want to go online on the iphone. But nice speed.
Breakfast was very high standard, fresh orange-juice, boiled eggs and lot of different fruits.
Missed was a place to smoke, when stayed on the second floor in the end of the corridor.
Because of the placement it is worth to stay there, but rooms are too tiny for the requested price.
Notice that parking, is a bit away, but your car will be locked in for the night, so if you not need the car, then it's good. Also it's under a supermarket with fair prices, and a wonderfull pizzaria less than 50 meters from the hotel. :)

Room Tip: Ask for one with view to the square.

Vimmerby Sweden is a quaint little tourist town off the beaten path. It was a nice surprise to discover such a beautiful village hotel in the heart of restaurants and shopping. The hotel was comfortable and inviting. The breakfast buffet was filled with a lot of food choices which were all very tasty.

Stayed with the family for a night in this hotel. I agree with the other reviews - this hotel is good if you travel with small children and want to visit the Astrid Lindgren park in Vimmerby in summer. Rooms are small and adequately equipped. Breakfast is basic. No surprises - no disappointments. If you are lucky and have a warm evening you can have a good dinner in front of the hotel.

The hotel is right on the town square with a lovely terrace. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and breakfast offers a great variety.

The hotel offers free wifi and free parking in a garage nearby. Several restaurants and supermarkets are close by.

Considering Vimmerby being the centre of Astrid Lindgren "land" the entire town serves well to families and kids so if you want peace and quiet, this might not be for you ;)

We stayed in this hotel two night with my family in July.
This hotel is near five minutes by car to Astrid Lindgren World.
Rooms are small but comfortable and clean.
The hotel is located in the town center and it has a good restaurant.
