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 tub, there only showers). The ipod/mp3-speaker is also a nice touch.
The staff is friendly, but a bit absent-minded sometimes in a sort of cute way. The breakfast is very basic (yoghurt, coffee, tea, boiled eggs, bread, fresh fruit etc) and served in a VERY small room, but everything is fresh and I couldn't really say we missed anything in particular.
The hotel itself couldn't be more central in Visby, perfect as a base for walks around town. Parking can be a bit of a bother, but that goes for all of Visby inside the city walls. Somewhere around Almedalen is the best choice in this respect.
The only thing to complain about is that you often have to phone for someone to come to the front desk. And if you don't have a mobile phone, that could be a bit of a bother. Someone at the desk at all times during opening hours would be appreciated.
And as for the complaint in another review about the minibar...no swedish hotels (except for Grand hotel in Stockholm maybe) are allowed to keep alcohol in the minibar due to swedish legislation.
