Elite Grand Hotel Gavle
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Gavle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Lots of efforts and money has been spent to renovate this hotel. And its very nice and well done.
Rooms are spacious and confy, bath rooms are small but efficient.
Interior design is very much the expected one and not very exciting. But it works and the quality is good. You do feel relaxed in the room.
All staff is very friendly and well trained.
We happend to check in the same night as the Restaurant was reserved for a local company, celebrating Xmas. You do expect to be informed upon reservation of rooms that the Restaurant and even the Bar (!) will not be available. We were forced to run our business dinner outside the hotel. Disappointing.

Room Tip: The over all standard is the same, no worries.

A really nice place to stay. Great buffet (from 6.30) and modern clean rooms. The hotel itself is newly renovated after a fire but retains the period decor and is truly grand. The hotel was let down a little by the service (no laundry bag or list left and no re-stocking of water in mini- bar) but these were minor concerns. The Internet connection is slow (50-200 Kbps) but it is free.

I spent a couple of night in the Elite Grand Hotel for a wedding in Gävle and I was fascinated by the hotel. It is a new hotel located in central Gävle, just 2 minuts walking from the train station. It is extremely clean and tidy. The reception staff were super helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable. The only tiny remark would be that it was not super spacious, but it was OK. The breakfast was amazing, really good. The gym and spa area were very good as well.

Overall, a great experience. It was totally worth the money. I actually found it even cheap for what I got.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are OK.

I spent two nights here in July 2013 with my 6 year old son. Good location and nice building but the service and facilities were not what I'd expect of a 4 star hotel. I booked a deluxe room, advertised as being larger than a superior room, but the room we got was very small; more like the size one expects for a standard room in cities such as London or Amsterdam where real estate is at a premium. It was definitely not as large as the photos of the deluxe rooms on the hotel website.The hotel advertised free wifi, but it was not available in my room and on one morning there was no coffee available at breakfast.

A friend said that the hotel could arrange discounted tickets to furuvik park, but when I rang they said that the tickets were the same price as if we had bought them at the park. I asked the hotel to arrange two tickets anyway and they charged me 30:- more than the cost of the tickets, which I felt was bad form.

The town of Gävle was a pleasant surprise and I would definitely visit again, although staying at a different hotel. There were lots of summer activities on offer for all ages in and around the town square along with nice parks and a decent swimming pool. We also found a couple of decent restaurants; Matildas is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are within range of the wifi access point, so if wifi in the room is important then ma...

It is a beautiful hotel which has been recently completely refurbished. The staff are really pleasant and efficient. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. The restaurant is really good and the food is also really good. Breakfast is really good.
The rooms are well insulated so they are quite which is essential for a good nights sleep. The beds are really comfortable too.
The hotel is in a good location and you can walk just about anywhere in Gavle in just a few minutes. The hotel is also close to a really nice park which is great to go and run in.

This hotel is a modernized old building. It overlooks the canal and includes a high profile kitchen. The food is very good and fairly expensive, as is the hotel. The beds are very comfortable, as they usually are at the Elite-chain.
I ate at the restaurant, and enjoyed the food. The breakfast was slightly above average.

Hands down, this was one of the best hotel experiences I've had, any time/place. I stayed for 3 nights and felt like I was certainly living above my means. The breakfast is generous, tasty and rare. Everything you can imagine: fine meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, juices, caviar, all sorts of breads and croissants, waffles, fresh fruits, etc. The building and its deep, yellow color looks like a palace. Rooms are modern with no expense spared...heated marble floors in bathroom, the most comfy of beds. Temperature-controlled. Great location very near the train station and close to center of town; on the River and right across from the Old Town, where the Joe Hill museum is located. The staff were very professional and kind, formal but easy to assist with language and direction questions. Parking is 90 SEK per day and is a block or two away in a structure (easy). For the price it doesn't get much better than this. Lots of smiling faces in this hotel. Well done.
