Very good place to stay and very good location. Superb breakfast included. Good wifi. Clean comfortable room. Only reason not five stars was the room was a tad bit cold even with heat on high. The price was a bit high due to business convention in town. All in all would recommend and would stay again.

Big hotel next to railway station and city center. The room had a desk with power outlets, and WiFi worked fine. Good breakfast with ample seating and many choices, including hot courses, starting at seven also on weekends. At check in I had to wait for the clerk to finish a lengthy phone call. To buy food items sold in... More

Hotel needs update. It has perfectly positioned which is great. It is close to all shops and restaurants or walk on the lake. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly. We have not used spa. Wake up call is on.

Quite cheap hotel, but rooms and common areas were really dirty and worn. This hotel really needs facelift. However it was tolerable for one night. Breakfast and location were good. Staff was friendly.

Located right in the heart of the city, and with underground parking available ( but at a price!) this is an excellent place to stay and then visit the City Centre - which really is on the doorstep.

It is situated in the middle of Jönköping so you are real close to everything included the trainstation. The hotel is a bit shabby on its way to decline so it is definitely in dire need of renovation. Staff is real good so that is a plusfactor.
