Got a very small room at the hotel. We stayed from saturday until sunday and saturday evening/night was very noisy outside our window so we had a bad sleep. The room was very simple but the breakfast buffe was ok. Not one of the better hotels.

This hotel is for certain centrally located in the heart of Vaxjo. The hotel itself is located in a couple buildings that are adjacent to each other. It offered very decent dinners and breakfasts that were included in the price. The dinner in particular was a surprise for me with it being included in the price and being very decent... More

Room was nice and clean with comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Wifi comes with individual password and works very well. We appreciated the afternoon baked goods and the included buffet dinner. Breakfast was extensive. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only slight downside was some noise from people on the street outside on Saturday evening, to be expected in... More

Convenient and highly professional staff. Evening meal not only well prepared but adds value to the travel budget that is rarely parallel. The reception staff are very helpful from local info to luggage. Excellent breakfast selection of food, coffee, and tea.

We made a booking here because: - Vaxjo was a convenient place for an overnight stop on our journey across Sweden. - Inclusion of evening meal in the hotel price was attractive. We left thinking we should have gone elsewhere because: - Vaxjo is a functional semi-industrial town and regional centre with a pedestrianised centre of 1960s concrete buildings. -... More
