We stayed here only for a night as we have waited for the flat we rented to get free. We chose this hotel because of it was close to the ferry terminal, not far from the flat we were supposed to move to afterwards and it still had available rooms in July (we booked a week before the arrival or so).
This actually explains it all. If rooms are still available in the middle of July in Visby just a week before arrival it's not a perfect hotel to stay in. All best places are then taken for sure. Probably the weather which was kind of cold this year was the reason for that too.
The hotel is totally OK. 3 stars standard (we had a superior double room), clean, small table and chairs outside the room. Breakfast was also ok. Just standard but tasty and fresh. Staff was very friendly. Nothing to complain about in fact.
The only thing that you have to pay 165 euros for a night in such hotel is a bit weird. I know Sweden is an expensive country, I know Visby is especially expensive and thinking of Gotland lives on agriculture and tourism it's even more understandable but still... In comparison on a pretty expensive and very beautiful island Corsica hotels are also expensive but you get much better standard for this money.
