“Rainy day stop-over.”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

On a Swedish Drive-about from Stockholm to Denmark, In the rain and with Holiday traffic, we came upon this small, but very pretty village.Best Western was close to booked up and only had Delux rooms left.Our room was large and the Bed (they had no twins left), was supposed to be large enough for my son and I to share. It was not, it was about double bed size but with 2 covers.The price was over $300 (U.S.).The sauna area was adequate.The breakfast was plentiful, but somewhat over cooked.The parking was enclosed and easy to access. The reception staff was very warm and helpful.

Very nice hotel in the middle of Kalmar town, Walking distance to Kalmar Castle and City Square, and everything else in City centre. Friendly staff, nice rooms, coffee in the lobby. Great breakfast. Will come back.

As said its probably the best hotel in Kalmar, very central location, and seams quite newly renovated. Nothing exclusive but a good hotel, facilities include a whirlpool with sauna.
Restaurant and bar are very scandinavian scale-off style. Looks good but don't give you coozyness.
But just around the corner from the hotel its plenty of nice restaurants, so its not a problem.
Breakfast is very traditional scandinavian/international.
Check in was smooth and staff is very friendly.
Reason for that I give it only a 3 star, is that its nothing that sticks out, its not bad, its just as a normal hotel should be, and the way you actually expect a hotel to be.

Room Tip: I always ask for high floor and non-smoking, over the years I learned that that is the safest bet to...

The hotel has very friendly and helpful staff. It is situated close to many restaurants and shops. A 15 minute walk from the castle. Kalmar is a very pleasant town with parks, gardens and old houses from a bygone era. The main road, E22, from Norrköping can get very crowded in summer due to bridge openings and traffic lights in Söderköping. Try an alternative route if possible.

Reviewed 29 June 2014

The room was big an spacious on the third floor, barely any noise from the neighbours since those room werent even marked with a roomnumber? View horrible but we had the curtains closed most of our stay. The staff was polite. Free wifi! Nice touch with robe and slippers.

The cons are that the breakfast was under all critique, the "warm" dishes were cold and burned. Not very good checking for the amount of food either.
They charged 105 SEK per night for the parking.
The floor in the bathroom were at times very hot, so you needed the slippers to not scald yourself, but also a nice thing... The temperature in the room was hard to get right, either too warm or too cold, but I guess thats just us.
Checkouttime was 11 and breakfast even on weekends was between 7-10.30, quite early.

I was missing som info about Kalmar and Åland at the hotell, but thats OK.

Overall its OK but tiny things that drags it down.

Have a nice stay.

We stayed there for three nights in mid May 2014. You should book a room on the third floor, as they are much larger in size. The staff was very accommodating, and with their help we got to see everything we were interested in. The breakfast buffet was very adequate, and the staff kept it promptly replenished. Even though there is an extra charge we highly recommend using the services of the parking garage. The street in front was under construction, but we were able to navigate it without a problem.

Room Tip: Get room on third floor.

This BW hotel is centrally located in Kalmar. The first impression is small and simple. Sometimes this concept work, sometimes it only seems cheap and small.

There is is a small reception, combined with a small bar and a restaurant and breakfast area. Staff is really service-minded and well in class with first class hotels in major cities in Sweden. Well, this is Kalmar and not Stockholm, nor Malmö or Göteborg so recommendations outside the hotel are limited, at a least...

Had a deluxe-room, functional and newly renovated. Nothing stronger than mineral water in the minibar but no problem to bring drinks from reception/bar to the room. Bed was really comfortable, the lighting was a bit slow due to "energy saving bulbs", but works well within a few minutes.

C More channels are free, sauna and relax area on the first floor was rather good but nothing special. Breakfast ok, but not any surprises.
