The hotel has a very good position and you don't need the car to visit town. Very close to any type of restaurants. The room was a superior (we are a couple with a 4 year old child) and hade enough space. The standard of the room was good but without a fridge, while the bathroom was ok but in... More

We stayed in this hotel for few nights and had one of their bigger rooms. It was big enough for the people of three and very quiet during the night time. Personnel was very friendly and professional. Location is good, in the middle of town. It is good to know that you are able to buy a parking voucher for... More

Nice, modern, clean hotel just in the middle of Karlskrona, surrounded by shops and restaurants. Parking for one night at the parking place just a few steps apart (no cost between 4pm-10am). Great breakfast.

A fairly small and modern hotel, close to a minor shopping centre and only a few hundred yards from the city centre. All old Karlskrona is within walking distance. Breakfast is rich and coffee (or tea) with cakes is available , free of charge, all day. The lift really shows that time is of little - if any- essence. I'd... More

This is a great hotel in the middle of the centre. With nice personality and a good atmosphere. The only thing is that the parking spot aren't so easy to find. I can recommend this hotel and the rooms are great.

I had a really pleasant stay. No problems with anything. The service and breakfast was lovely. The entre from the street needs a little bit of renovation but I learned that it was already being taken care of.

Came to this hotel just for a quick visit. Room's are quite small but clean. Bathroom quite small and shower started to be a bit outdated. But anyway it was working. Staff was friendly and check in and out was smooth.

We arrived to Karlskrona around 10 am and when we called the hotel to see if we could check in early, the receptionist told us that we were more than welcome to do so.
