This is a detailed review to let you know what to expect if you choose the Behrn. Our room itself was your standard smallish plain Scandinavian hotel room with a somewhat dated look and I remember being a little surprised that the hotel received such a high rating. That said it was by no means uncomfortable and we did get a very nice rate at the hotel. In fact given the rate it's possible we were given one of the less desirable rooms, but looks aside, it was clean and cozy, smelled good and the beds were quite comfortable.
One of our goals at the hotel was to try out the sauna and relax room. The relax room has two showers, a nice newer sauna room, two standard size bath tubs that are jetted/jacuzzi , styled as hydro massage, and a little lounge area. The area is open to all in the afternoon/evening and what to wear was a conundrum. My husband visited in his athletic shorts in the evening but was actually able to enjoy the space with no else there. We were told it was possible to reserve the area in the morning for 100 KR each and be completely private so we did and enjoyed a nice hour and a half soak and sauna.
The breakfast was one of my favorite hotel breakfasts ever just because of the little details. The hardboiled egg halves with little shrimps and dill were delicious. The mini croissants were as good as I would get in France. The six types of jam were top-notch. In addition to teabags they had some fine loose tea that you could brew up which went very nicely with the croissants. The fruit tray was a nice selection of peeled and carved fruit. There was an amazingly bread selection which I didn't get to because I was so happy with the croissants. The crepes tasted like they forgot the leavening but the whipped cream topping and strawberry sauce were sinfully delicious. There were some cereals and a number of nut and dried fruit toppings. Also some of the usual meats and cheeses which looked fine and I never got around to trying.
The Internet is wireless and they give you a coupon at the front desk with codes to input and it worked fine. Overall the service is impeccable and the folks at the front desk extremely helpful and steered us entirely right with some food recommendations. The Java coffee house around the corner from the hotel has amazing sandwiches and sweets, a salad bar and some hot dished, all very fresh. From my perspective the great central location, wam friendly service, and delicious breakfast are what earned this hotel a very good rating. I stop short at excellent because I think some people would expect a somewhat more luxurious rooom for an excellent rating.
