“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Hotel Freden is spread over two locations. Both are very close to the railway station and the city center. We spent one night in every location. The rooms (and bathrooms) are of a reasonable size and although not modern do look very clean. The first stay we had a room with a bathroom. The next stay we shared bathrooms with other residents. Breakfast was according to expectations as well. I really can't share anything bad as I really loved our stay here. Maybe staying in an almost empty hotel helped out a lot but that's kind of normal out of season.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

This hotel is very conveniently located just across the street from the railway station. There are normal hotel rooms as well as cheaper hostel rooms. These have bunk beds, but you are not sharing rooms with strangers. If you are staying in a hostel room you have to use the bathrooms in the corridor. The furniture is old and worn, but it is clean and cheap. I haven't stayed in the hotel part, so I don't know what it's like. There are kitchens that you can use, but you can also pay 60 sek to have breakfast, which was well worth its price. The receptionist was very nice and makes you feel welcome.
This is a good option if you are on a tight budget, but want to avoid staying far away from the centre.
