“Fine For Business Traveller”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

I've stayed in a couple of the central hotels in Kalmar but thought I'd give this a try as it's quite a bit cheaper and has free parking.

The room was bigger than I expected even though I'd paid for a double (usually single rooms in Sweden are too small for my taste). Everything was fine with the room - plenty of room to work on, a separate table and chairs to watch TV and a comfortable double bed.

Wireless is free of charge and although a little slow at the busy times, it was reliable.

As this is part of a motorway service centre, you have a petrol station with associated shop downstairs as well as both a restaurant and a Burger King for food. Plenty of options for food and a good breakfast selection.

All in all, an above average medium budget travellers hotel. Will use it again.

Stayed here for one night right before Ironman Kalmar since I wanted a place close to the start. Fantastic service including a free shuttle to the start and a more than decent breakfast buffet. The room was also quite clean and I feel I received great value for the SEK 1,095 I paid for one night including breakfast.

We weren't expecting much when we booked this reasonably priced motel for a couple of nights because it WAS a motel, situated alongside a petrol station, on a major road junction with Burger King as a neighbour. What a surprise when we checked in! The room we were given was very spacious, comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean. There was a more than adequate en-suite shower room with the usual toiletries and plenty of clean towels.
The view from the window wasn't the most attractive (a car/lorry park and IKEA!) but the room was well soundproofed and we weren't disturbed by traffic noise at all.
There was a good choice at the buffet breakfast - lots of different breads & rolls (plus toaster), cheeses, hams, yoghurts, cereals, eggs, jams, fruit juices, hot drinks, etc, etc.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
The Rasta is well situated to travel over the Ölandsbron to the pretty island of Öland, home of the Swedish royal family's summer palace. It is just a few kilometers to Kalmar Slott and the pretty town centre of Kalmar.
