Such a beautiful hotel in a great spot, very close to Destination Gotland ferries. Comfortable rooms, rich & tasteful breakfast with welcoming and very helpful staff. I'll definitely come again, not just to stay in Hotel Slottsbacken but for Visby too. One of the best places I've been to, locals are very lucky to live here...

Very nice hotel. Clean with all amenities that you need I especially liked the small cooky table with traditional butter based Swedish coffee cookies. Helpful staff, good location and a very nice breakfast.

Be quiet little hotel meticulously kept and it tended to extremely clean well-appointed in the old archives building. Free breakfast every morning fresh and refilled as necessary. Excellent and attentive front desk staff would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We spent the past weekend in Visby and stayed in this small gem of a hotel. The location is perfect to visit the inner town and close to the boat harbour. The rooms are spotless with a large comfortable bed. The staff were very helpful in recommending a few good restaurants.

I really enjoyed my stay at Slottsbacken. Small and cosy hotel with nice clean rooms. Plesant staff and very good breakfast. Good location within tha walls. in august, the room could get a bit hot. There was a fan but no other form of airconditoning.

Hotel Slottsbacken is ideally located within the walls of the old town, walking distance to all the local attractions, restaurants, and the sea front. The hotel itself is fairly new and very stylish - we had a top floor room with bedroom on a mezzanine floor, equipped with jacuzzi and fantastic shower room. But this is not a place of... More

The hotel is an old store which has retained its character. Really friendly welcome, lovely rooms (if a little compact). Staff can't do enough for you, and you can walk everywhere. Breakfast is traditionally Swedish with no restrictions on anything. A view from our room at sunset

This building from the 18th was converted to a hotel in 2012. Just on the inside of the wall surrounding Visby and it was easy to park our car in the outside for free and then take a 5-minute walk to the hotel. Very friendly service, an excellent breakfast buffet with a homemade feeling, and free Wi-Fi. The rooms are... More

This hotel was completely refurbished into a modern chic hotel. When we went there they had just finished the renovations, and we got a room on the top floor. The rooms were very clean and modern. Fantastic bed! Breakfast was very nice - good basic selection and location could not complain!
