We were four persons who stayed at the hotel and as the hotel is situated near a number of good restaurants we were perfectly satisfied. As for the rooms they were a bit old-fashioned but alright if you intend to stay just one or two nights. The staff were quite professional and ready to answer all our questions. Summing this...

When travelling with kids it's preferable that things go smoothly. Nothing to complain. Everything worked well and even weather was excellent to show the best part of small idyllic swedish city. Norra berget was a nice stop with kids and gave them information about living during the old times.

We came to skate, stay a night and party, and those are the things we did. I wasn't allowed to bring a second person up to my 2 person room because they didn't have a room key, so I never actually slept at the hotel.... If I pay for a 2 person room, I would love to actually be allowed... More

A very clean and luxurious Hotel. Interesting decor and furniture. Elegant and suave. And very congenial staff. Helpful and smart but not smug. Beautiful restaurant & bar. Plenty of space at reception. Big baggage room. Plenty of goodies at guests disposal... Best of all apples👍

I always stay in this hotel when I am in Sundsvall (stayed 5-6 times by now). It is very conveniently located next to the train station and some of the good restaurants are in the streets nearby. 3 mins walk to the main square and it is possible to take nice walks in the city or up the hiking hill....

Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Slept very well. The third bed was really a third comfortable bed (not a poor matrass which can often be the case in other hotels). Wifi worked quite fine. Good location.

Friendly staff at the front desk. Good breakfast with enough variety. Good location WiFi works fine Noise in the room from the water pipes. Must improve room cleaning. The room was small, but enough for a single person.

As this was a one-night stopover, the modest single room was acceptable, but if critical I could say it was more tired than I was. The foyer is quite impressive, as is the bar, but then even better in the restaurant. The food was well prepared, and the buffet style lent itself to a repeat visit. The central location is... More
