Stayed for a night at Hotel 1 during a business trip to Visby a week ago. Upon arrival I was met by friendly staff in the lobby, but did not see much more of them (or anyone else) until departure. I was informed that the hotel was only staffed parts of the day due to the fact that it is... More

My wife and I travelled to Visby from London during the summer, we had such a great experience here that we felt compelled to review. These guys are so lovely - a family run place in a great location. They have clearly paid great attention to detail in things like decor + breakfast. Furthermore, they were extremely helpful in helping... More

I wish all hotels were like this. It's chic with warm and easygoing owners. The rooms are delightful, quiet, with good windows and good lighting. Beds are so comfortable. We found all beds in Copenhagen and Stockholm wonderful, but this one was the best. The bathroom is stylish and efficient. Breakfasts are in a separate building, that looks like a... More

Filthy hotel room (shower) and unfriendly staff. We are very disappointed with this hotel and especially its staff which were both unfriendly and unhelpful. These people should not even be in the hotel industry since they don't seem to like having guests. It should be great fun to stay in a hotel, but in the future we (and our friends)... More

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely hotel run by a very nice family! We are both used to business hotels due to work. The stylish but cosy Hotel 1 is a nice change. Bests beds and atmosphere ever in a hotel! There are great restaurants just around the corner but reservations are always recommended! Hotel 1 is our first... More

Hotel1 is a hotel dedicated to design, ie all rooms have their own style. Me and my partner have stayed in 2 of the rooms and enjoyed the feeling of luxury they gave. The rooms are very clean, the beds are comfortable (if a little too soft to my taste) and the bathrooms without flaws (if you don't expect a... More

The worst customer service ever! It's not a hotel as has no hotel services! It's a bed and breakfast. Breakfast is very poor no hot options and not even fresh pastries even tho there are bakers around! Very disappointed as it was a 30th birthday trip! We were told we didn't need to book restaurants as it was out of... More

Hotel 1 is a newly renovated property in one of the many old buildings of the medieval city of Visby. This is a B&B style hotel but in a 5* setting. We enjoyed the luxury of room 31, not spacious, but wonderfully equipped, with a dream-style bathroom, great bed and a huge terrace, the latter we could not take advantage... More

Perfect spot in Visby. Located across the street from the Historical Museum in the center of old Visby. Lovely views of a small fountain and square. Small hotel with bright and comfortable rooms. Easy walk from ferry boats and near to the Botanical Garden. I recommend with no reservations. Great family staff, too.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Discover Hotell Strandporten, a hotel with beautiful surroundings in the middle of the World Heritage Town Visby on the island of Gotland. The view over the park area Almedalen is wonderful and you can also see the sea from some of the rooms. In Visby you find many entertainments, restaurants and culture at a walking distance.We hope that you will enjoy the warmth and the cosiness and make you feel at home while staying here – even though you are far away from your home. We believe that our guests choose to stay here because the hotel is small with a personal touch. After noon tea is served every day 3-6 pm. We offer some coffee, tea and some sweets in the main building. Free of charge of course.All of our 20 individually designed rooms have bathrooms with tiles on the walls and Gotlandic marble flooring. ... more   less
