The hotel is directly situated in front of the main station and one of the main roads in Linköping. The city centre is in walking distance and the reference to "Fawlty Towers" makes a wink to the famous British series, although not much is done to become that rude, clumsy or intriguing as the Fawlty Towers hotel of Basil, Sibyl,...

I have stayed here a few times now when visiting on business. Clean, interesting décor and each room seems to have its own individual character. Slight 'Fawlty Towers' theme but this is not overdone. I have only eaten breakfast here when I have stayed and it is always very good. Very convenient for the main railway station just across the... More

This hotel is in vintage style and this gives it a special flavor. Beside the lack of elevator it has everything modern, TV, wi-fi, perfect bathroom. The rooms are very big and everything very enjoyable.

The location is ideal for the train station, which is immediately across the road. The hotel is a large old wooden building, decorated inside in an agreeably ramshackle way. The "Fawlty Towers" theme is fortunately not particularly obtrusive, and the antique-shop aesthetic is affectionate rather than ironic or pretentious. There are some spots of wear and tear, but everything works... More

Being built as a hotel already in 1888, Park Hotel (formerly the Railway Hotel), is a hotel as far from your ordinary business hotel as you can possibly imagine. Just calling their hotel "The Fawlty Towers of Linkøping" is evidence that this hotel wants to cater for customers who wants something different and on top of that has a good... More

"Mr Fawlty must stop trying to watch me through the window on a ladder, Mrs Fawlty must stop laughing, I found Manual's rat under my pillow, and Polly couldn't stop laughing at me when trying to draw me ... And the Major is definitely a good guy". For those who understands, ;o). For those who don't, go buy Fawlty Towers's... More

We were on the third floor. The closet had been turned into a shower. That's the quirky part (well, moose heads and armored man also.) But comfortable. Had a nice parking lot for our new Volvo. In the city so we could walk around. This was a one night stop from Copenhagen to Stockholm. The reception lady was very friendly... More

We stayed for only one night, but would be happy to stay longer the next time we are in town. 2 grown ups and 2 kids of 4 & 7, arrived after dinner time so we didn't have the chance to try the food or afternoon tea. A verk nice lady greeted us at the reception desk, and told us... More

The welcome was very special, thank you. Our room was excellent, very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was exceptional, and again, on checking out, our hostess Therese was exceptionally helpful and polite. Location absolutely perfect. Thank you and we plan to return!
