“Hostel rather than hotel”
Reviewed 4 December 2012 via mobile

Indeed, hotel lays in centrum of Borlänge. It is maybe close to shops. But best times of hotel passed away long time ago. Interior is suitable for hostel, not hotel. And certainly, not for the price you need to pay for single room.
Noise of Monday's jazz club playing somewhere in hotel till 22 is just no-no.
It is winter outside and room is cold! Sleeping under two doveys!
Breakfasts are also hostel grade, with very much appetizing plastic eggs.
The only OK in whole hotel is restaurant, which actually does not belong to hotel...

Stayed December 2012, travelled on business

Reviewed 20 January 2012

Very friendly staff that let us move in several hours earlier than supposed to. Free internet and coffee, tea and chocolate in the room. Kettle to boil water.

Sauna and shower in the building with nice view of Borlänge. No signs to find the way to the sauna though.

The doublebed was perfect but the sofa/extrabed made noise so my son had to sleep between us in the doublebed.
