The hotel strandporten is situated in the middle of the ancient walled city of Visby on Gotland Island, Sweden. The hotel is lovely, with impeccably presented breakfast and afternoon tea, and wonderfully attentive and adorable staff.

Stayed here in March just for one night in business, all in all it was a good stay, nice clean rooms; receptionist was helpful, close to both the water and the main street and to a decent price. The breakfast was maybe a bit on the thin side and as usual i would love to see some options if you... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights during the off-season and really enjoyed my stay. Everything was wonderful--the location, the room, the staff, the breakfast, the afternoon tea. I can't recommend it enough. I would definitely stay here again if I come to Visby.

This trip was a sort of sampler of Scandinavia. We visited many places over four countries, briefly, and for both of us a major highlight was Visby. And the stand-out hotel was this one. It is a simple hotel, elegant and well located in the old town. Our double room was one floor up, facing the road and the building... More

I stayed in the top floor veranda room with a view of the Baltic and the town itself. Incredible, deck to yourself, total privacy, and, most importantly, quiet, in an otherwise somewhat noisy environment. My biggest concern, knowing the hotel shares a building with O'Leary's sports bar (downstairs and off to the side) was that this was going to be... More

Stayed with husband and daughter in this lovely hotel in the center of Visby for 3 nights. Very cosy and beautiful small hotel, a lot of attention put into small details as candles in the public facilities during the whole day allthough middle of July. Friendly staff, at least in the reception, very elegant rooms with trendy decor. Great breakfast,... More

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
