First I want to say if you book w this hotel you need to remember and think about that it is located in side of a mall. Like the shops where all around,same as the hotel and they closed it all in. Look for the parking house/garage called "Wachtmeister Galleria" From there put a few krowns in to park till... More

Situated in the city centre of the historic maritime town of Karlskrona. Very nice and modern rooms, very good service and breakfast. Close to the historic parts of town and the large square with free overnight car park.

There are things to like here but the uneven approach to service and facilities left me cold when considering the price I paid. This is modern hotel embedded in a nicely refurbished series of connected buildings. It fronts on a central shopping street and backs right into an galleria shopping mall. The mall has a grocery store, ATMs, a liquor... More

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.

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.
