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.

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!

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.

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.
