An average hotel, the entrace is very nice but the rooms are what you'd find in any average hotel in any town in sweden. It is in a good location inside the town of Visby though. The hotel has a lot of nooks and corridors with sofas and generally nice social areas.

The hotel itself is very nice. The lobby is newer with a large tree in the middle. We got a family room which is huge. It's the size of a small apartment. The decor looks old, like your grandparents furniture, but comfortable enough. The staff was great and the room was clean. Now the bad parts. The ventilation was not... More

That's a nice place to stay, close to every nice spot in the city, clean and with a great staff. However, it's worth mentioning that it is a pricey place. É um ótimo local, próximo aos principais locais da cidade, limpo e com um ótimo atendimento. Todavia, vale citar que é um hotel caro

The hotel was nice and clean, breakfast was excellent. I was disappointed by the lack of minibar in our room, especially since the hotel knew we were travelling with a small child. They let us store some stuff in their fridge but from a revenue point of view it would have been smarter to have a minibar for parents stuck... More

Situated in an old brewery just inside the Medieval City Wall, The Strand offers value for money. All the expected amenities are in place but I want to highlight a couple of them: 1) adjacent to the cosy lobby is a charming library with work desks, 2) the two beds in room 443 are placed towards a corner of the...

The hotel itself is very nice. Throughout the hotel they have nice areas to sit and socialize. We had a room in the extension part where the parking lot is. The room was very small and basic same with the bathroom. They probably have nicer rooms in the main hotel by the sounds of other reviews. The hotel is very... More

You walk into the reception and it looks a little "shoppe" that gives it a "homely" feel, very relaxed. The staff couldn't have been more helpful giving advice for all our needs restaurants car hire , etc. The room was great spa bath, roof top terrace, fridge, ample seating, big beds, dressing roabs slippers and the whole room very very...

Very nice hotel! Comfortable and nice decor. Room small. Great pool, sauna area. Visby is easy to see by bike. We were there during Medieval Festival--great fun. Beautiful park. Nice walking/bike path along the sea. Wish we had stayed 4 days, not two.

This is a very nice hotel with beautiful rooms and a great location. You will never need to wait in the long bathroom lines and the medieval festival since the hotel is so close. The staff is friendly and give great directions. The breakfast is really good. The rooms are really nice and quiet.
