The plus: Location right in the old town. Staff were friendly/helpful as anywhere we stayed in Sweden. The bad: Badly needs a renovation in the public spaces like the lobby, hallways and dining area. Terribly worn materials/furniture, dark and depressing. Random, mismatched furniture on the guest floors. Clean though. Elevator doors didn't work properly. Not Swedish 4-star caliber. The OK:...

Averaged sized rooms for Swedish Hotels. Heated towel racks in bathroom. Complimentary coffee, tea and cookies daily. Breakfast spread was fantastic, comparable or better than our 5 other stays in Sweden. The pool was small, but clean. Sauna was nice, however one of the other guests had left the door open so there was a snafu with getting it back...

I made a reservation for the next month online, and cancelled the following day within 48 hours because we changed our travel plans. The hotel refused to refund my money because I had made the reservation using the internet and a web deal. There is a no refund policy if you cancel an online reservation. So, don't make a reservation...

I think we have stayed at every hotel in Kalmar, one time or another, except at Witt. And I have always thought all Kalmar hotels overpriced. Until now. Witt is still not inexpensive. But the staff is very service-minded (unlike at some hotels that I can think of where the staff makes you feel like you intrude on their privacy...

Very friendly staff and big and comfy rooms, TV separated from the bedroom, but again, the price was a bit too high for this type of hotel. Other than that, it was very nice, and the location is near the harbour and the restaurant area.

We/I have visited the SE region of Sweden many times over the last number of years. Have nearly always stayed at the Clarion, think its called Packhuset. For a change booked the Witt. Next to the main square, by the sea, excellent facilities, breakfast great and room clean and comfortable. Also very helpful staff/ management. What more can you say....

Right in the center of downtown Kalmar, fairly newly renovated. Our double room was extremely small but the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is substantial and good!

I stayed in this hotel almost one year ago and I have to admit that the service have been improved. The staff was very friendly, hotel's atmosphere is great and location superb. Rooms are not too big, but are nice and well equiped.

When I booked the hotel, I got inspired by the pictures, but they do not really show what you will find at the location. The rooms are nice and clean, but very small. You can hardly pass the bed without knocking over something or running into your partner. The same happens if someone is in the bathroom, which is very...

Although the hotel looked bland from the outside on its website, I was tempted by the pictures of the rooms, which looked smarter than they turned out to be. The smell of stale fug in the reception area gave a bad first impression. We'd booked a family room (would have preferred 2 rooms with interconnecting doors, but this was difficult...
