Stayed here in summer 2011. Medeltidshotellet is at a great location in Visby, close to everything though still in a fairly quiet area.
The hotel is small and personal. Staff is friendly and service minded. Parking facilities are great (though not free). The building is old but feels fresh and clean. This is what Visby is about anyway, most of the buildings in central Visby are very old for natural reasons and this is what you expect to find here. Beds were very comfortable in our double room and bathrooms very clean and modern. There was a sauna / relax part you could book but we didn't get around to.
I would recommend this hotel. I know Visby fairly well and think this is a great place to stay when you are there. If you are considering staying more "down town" or central, or closer to the harbor, be prepared that Visby can be a lively town during summer with lots of night life. Medeltidshotellet is located in an area with not so many clubs and restaurants. Though you have everything just 15 mins walk from there and the walks in Visby are beautiful, so many old buildings and small streets to explore.
Keep in mind that Week 29 is the "Stockholmsveckan" in Visby every summer. This means a lot of night life and people traveling there to party from the rest of Sweden. If this is what you're looking for then that week is ideal for you. If you're not looking for partying then try to avoid Week 29 if you can. Week 27 is "Almedalsveckan" which is a gathering for Swedish political leaders and media in Visby. It's a lot of people there from government, business and more with lots of things going on every day and evening. Can be fun to visit if you're into events like that.
