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 Bathroom quite small and shower started to be a bit outdated.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.

Very nice and friendly hotel and staff. Good food/value for money. Free dinner with buying a drink at the bar. Good location for shopping, dinning and leisure activities. A great place to come back and having a good and relaxing time.

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. On site, the staff was able to help us with recommendations for a restaurant, provide us with a voucher at a local gym as well as... More

Centrally located in Karlskrona with a fair price, clean rooms and mediocre breakfast buffet. With rather small rooms and limited space for clothes, luggage etc. this hotel is well suited for shorter stays but seems less ideal for longer stays (more than three nights), especially for families. No directly adjacent parking possibilities (around 200 meters away on a public street).

This hotel offers nothing out of the ordinary but had friendly staff, clean facilities and ok breakfast, all at a fair price. The location is excellent, very close to the center square. If you are looking for a place to just rest comfortably for the night at an afforable price, this is recommended.
