Had a great stay here and can recommend the hotel to anyone needing a clean hotel with god parking and central location. Another good point is that the hotel is convenient located next to a down shopping center. So if you missing something you don't need to take the car to 'find it'.

The hotel is located at the border of the pedestrian area (15 min walking from the train station), it's a nice and clean hotel, comfortable, with WiFi available in the rooms, good and abundant breakfast. You can walk in 5 min to the historic city center. The personnel is gentle and kind. Rooms are OK although no glass (just curtains)... More

Good location, walking distance to city center, friendly staff at reception, clean and simple rooms. Free WIFI at room. It would be better to have shower cubicles. Breakfast was really good. What's more Pet's and smoking is strictly forbidden.

I arrived by train from Stockholm (during a 1 hour and 23 minute’s very comfortable journey) to the Central Station in Gavle. Then by feet to the hotel situated 800 meters (0,5 mile) away, located in the... More

Good location in the city center. Shops and restaurants within walking distance. Room was quite small, but newly refurbished, clean and pleasant. Very quiet (rear facing room). Free wifi. Scandinavian buffet breakfast with a good selection and quality. Free overnight on-street parking available around the hotel plus paid parking in car park across the road.

I was in Gävle on a customer visit and found this hotel perfect for my needs. It is within easy walking distance of the main station, check-in was a breeze even though we arrived late at night, the rooms were spacious and clean. Free wireless Internet access was available and quite fast. Breakfast was perhaps not the best I've had,... More

Decent hotel, nothing spectacular, but good enough. Very good beds; the rooms are cleansed everyday. Staff is friendly and willing to help whenever possible.
