“Serviceminded!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

I had a great stay at Packhuset and the staff is by far the reason for that. Even though they had an ongoing renovation of the dining and reception area they didn't let it affect they in any way. Lovely breakfast and dinner buffé. Another extra + is the fact that you could borrow their gymcard at a really nice local gym against a small fee- very appriciated!!

Nice location located metres from the water. Its a quite habor, but nice. Rooms are good, but worn and old-ish. Breakfast is good, and Well assorted even at 9:30. Ok at the Price. Fast internet, and quite rooms with no noise from hallways. A restorarion to required to get 4 rating.

Good value for money if you are two in a room, since a truly excellent breakfast and a good buffet supper are included in the room rate (about $185/£122) . There is an emphasis on ecological food and a very good choice of vegetarian dishes. The room with a view of the harbour entrance and Kalmarsund was compact with little storage space and the threadbare carpet and scuffed skirting board/wall let down an otherwise cosy atmosphere. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and outward going. If you arrive by motorcycle there is secure parking in the courtyard, otherwise ample parking on the quay in front of the hotel (not free) and within 150 m of the railway station (a terminus with NO disturbing noise at all).
The nautical theme, the location beside the water and within very easy walking distance of the historic town centre and the impressive Kalmar Slott (Castle), the relaxed and unpretentious nature of the hotel - all of these points left a very favourable impression. Just invest a little in freshening up the slightly worn fabric and this hotel would get 5 stars in all areas. Thoroughly recommended nonetheless.

Room Tip: There is no question that a sea view is always a plus, but bear in mind that you are overlooking a w...

This hotel just makes me smile. There nothing fancy about it, but it's right on the water. Our room was tiny, but utterly clean, comfortable and fresh, with a small patio and just enough room to sit and breathe the air and hear the gulls. The bedroom had a slight nautical theme, and I couldn't decide whether I felt like I was on a ship or at camp.
The breakfast smorgasbord was REALLY good. Lots of different home made breads, endless varieties of herring, smoked salmon, tomatoes, and cukes, as well as more bacon and egg-type things.
We only stayed here one night, and spent quite a bit of time at the Kalmar Castle, but if I ever get back to Sweden I would like to stay here again.

Louise and I settled into this lovely seaside hotel for 6 days as a base whilst I prepared for and competed in ironman Sweden. The staff were so helpful it was amazing and we were catered for superbly during the event.
The rooms are snug and a little tired but the facility and location in Kalmar is great.

I loved this hotel. Our view (a working harbor, Island of Oland in distance), the fresh tasting dinner was a treat (we weren't expecting much, and my husband and our friends who also stayed here were all so pleasantly surprised!) and breakfast buffet, as nice a front desk staff as anywhere we have stayed. On the negative - no air-conditioning in the room and it was a hot evening (we left our windows wide open and thankfully no birds or bugs bothered us!) and the room was a bit small and definitely needed to be re-done (our understanding is that refurbishing rooms is currently being undertaken at this hotel). Even with some of the drawbacks, I still would recommend this hotel and would go back again!!! It is a great base from which to explore Kalmar and Oland.

Room Tip: Higher floor, facing the water. Was concerned about noise from the people below the room eating and...

An ok stay for one night, but to be very honest- for the price I was expecting a little bit more...The location was great but there was a lack of attention to detail. Spider web in window and doorways, expect no little extras like shampoos or chocolate. Carpet in room worn, old fashion style tv and no fridge. Would I stay again- no. But the staff was lovely and breakfast buffe great!

Hej!
Tråkigt att inte din vistlese hos inte blev än bättre upplevelse. Det var ett tag sedan du skrev och vi har renoverat hela hotellet sedan 2 år tillbaka.

Kanske värt ett nytt försök?
Varmt välkommen tillbaka!
