Behrn Hotell
Ranked #7 of 15 Hotels in Orebro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2012

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.

My family of four, with two young children, was warmly welcomed by hospitable staff, especially the receptionists who were keen to meet our requests positively. We got a spacious room, where everything was set in order to house the young ones. A baby call made it possible for us parents to enjoy the sauna and relax lounge after the kids had fallen asleep. We will happily return to Behrns.

Room Tip: A mini suite is spacious for a family of four, and you can even get a baby cot free of charge.

We are a family of four (children 1.5 and 3 years old). We recently stayed at Behrns twice. The staff impressed us, with their very very good service-attitude. Whatever we asked (and parents of young children have lots of questions and odd requests), they were very quick to help us out with. Example: in the evening, we asked if there was some milk we could have (as the youngest tend to wake up and ask for some during the night). The receptionist not only got us some milk in a mug, but put it in a winecooler with ice to keep it chilled.

Excellent service!
Great sentral location.
Good ambiance.
What more can you ask for??

Room Tip: If you travel with children, you may appreciate a junior suite like the one we had for our family.

We stayed here one night in July as part of an Örebro/go to Gustavsvik trip from Stockholm. The hotel was great - nice room, GREAT staff, pretty OK breakfast, and a great location. Overall - a perfect place to stay for a trip like this.

To be a little critical - we got a room that was a bit hard to get to with a stroller requiring a very slow elevator and a pretty tight corridor, and then some weird system of getting in and out of the hotel with the card. In the end, not a big deal, but a little annoying.

The Behrn Hotell was really great! We had a double room that was big enough, although the closet was a bit small. The bathroom was really small, but manageable. However, they don't really give you toiletries, just a shampoo/body soap dispenser in the shower which wasn't too great. So just bring your own toiletries and it will be fine. The bed was really comfortable. You can get internet coupons from the front desk. The first day we got a 24 hour coupon, but the second day, just an 8 hour coupon, which was a bit annoying. They do have a computer on the second floor with internet and free printing.

The breakfast was outstanding! So much food and plenty of coffee and tea. Just delicious! The sunny breakfast room was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was also a wine tasting in the lobby which seemed nice. The location was outstanding, right in the middle of Orebro, within walking distance to everything. I would definitely recommend the Behrn!

we stopped over in Orebro on our way to Stockholm and just needed a central location in order to be able to see the city in one evening and this hotel lives up to that being located on the main square and within walking distance of most major sites. The hotel was cosy and comfortable but our Queen Room (218) was quite small and the internet was not free of charge. Parking is possible in the main square outside the hotel but it is not cheap, especially if you stay longer time so better to park a bit further away and save some money. The breakfast bufet was excellent and offered all what you can wish for. Overall quite a good experience, well suited for our purpose but not absolute top dollar!
