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.

We were very disappointed by our stay here. Hotel and rooms are dated. Seems like nothing has changed in 25 years. Bath room is simple. No mini bar in the room. No safe deposit box either. Service was poor and not at the level one could expect. Breakfast was ok, but without any service. Stay away!

Thank you for telling us your view of the visit at our hotel. With out pointers from our guests we can’t get better. It’s always very disappointing for us when our guests are not satisfied by their stay at our hotel. Design and taste is in the eye of the beholder so it’s not an easy task to fulfill everyone....

The hotel is is quite interesting. The lobby is quite welcoming with the tree right in the middle. There are many things from newspapers to souvenirs to soft drinks and even fruit place all about for sale. At times you wonder if you are in a hotel or a convenience store. I had a room on the third floor and... More

The hotel have good location in the city close to everything but far away enough to be a calm and relax area. The rooms are modern and well clean. Many different tv channels with English spoken programs. The hotel is offering free coffee, tea and cookies. The breakfast is average Swedish standard. The hotel have bar and good areas so... More

This hotel is very nice and the fact that it is dog friendly made it even easier for us to bring along our four legged friend. We had breakfast buffet everyday and enjoyed their homemade blackberry jam and fresh produce and baked bread. The service was very friendly and each room was unique.

We stayed in Best Western Strand Visby for 3 nights in late June as a couple with a child. It’s at a nice location about 1 Km from the ferry terminal inside the old wall. Despite the warning sign outside the wall entrance, you can drive in if you are booked in the hotel. The town square and the church... More

This is a totally charming hotel. The location, for me could not be better, near the waterfront park and only a few blocks from both the harbor and town square. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was very good. I have done a great deal of traveling and have never stayed in... More
