This is a nice hotel located in an old theatre The service is good and the breakfast is nice. It is i the heart of the city centre of Östersund. I could recomend this for both business and pleasure. In the basement there is a really nice spa.

Pleasant hotel in old cultural building, mainly the old Theatre. The original interior is enhanced in a time typical manner. At first I was offered a boring room without a window, in the basement, but it was no problem to change to a nicer room. Fairly small room. Deficit of space put things on: The small desk was covered with... More

I booked the Gamla Teatern a few hours before arriving in Ostersund, and suspect I got the last room in town, given that it was their annual music festival. The building is old, stuffy and tired, and had an all-permeating smell of fish for the duration of our stay. The room was small, quite stuffy, and had a mixed bag... More

The hotel was once a theatre so had an old world atmosphere. The dinner was by candlelight in the theatre but the service was extremely slow. Breakfast next morning, in a lounge area, was also by candlelight which was not appropriate at 6.30 a.m. There was no fridge in the room. The curtains did not fit close to the windows... More

We were taking our yearly family trip to Sweden with our two 20-something children and their friends (a total of six of us which included four 20-somethings). We stayed in Stockholm for six nights then started heading up north via car. We stayed overnight in Ostersund because there is a Boda Borg in town and we wanted to take our... More

Housed in a completely refurbished former theatre, the decor is more Victorian than anything else.....red velvet seating and chandeliers in the inside dining room. My room was comfortable, furnished in old world style, and clean. The hotel is located in the center of the city, just a short walk from the pedestrianised main street. Breakfast was complete with hot and... More

My room is with windows to main street, yes I do hear cars passing by but for me it's not a problem. Locations is really good. For example last week I was staying in... More

After long train trip from Stockholm we arrived in time for dinner. The setting in the former theater was charming and unique but the one course salmon dinner seemed under whelming. Our room was very small so had to step over my suitcase to get to the bathroom. The staff does not speak much English but we're helpful in supplying... More

Price was ok, but the room was not great. Beds were ok, and bathroom small but functional. Windows went into a conference room, so not much fresh air. Woke up with a headache. Nice breakfast, and overall a cosy place. But don't do the budget room...

This was my first time in Östersund and stayed at the Best western hotel. This hotel is very central and easy to find as it stands on one of the main streets. When you walk in the feel is very old fashion and it's quite nice and it carries the team of an old theater very well. The bedroom was... More
