We picked this hotel in Visby because we read positive reviews on Tripadvisor. But I must say we're disappointed. When you pay like 300 € a night (and this was a reduced, pre-paid rate!) for a mini-suite, you'd expect value for money. The room was not too bad (although you can hardly call it a mini-suite) and had a nice... More

Good location. Very nice and service minded staff! We stayed in two different rooms, both with very nice furniture and fresh bathrooms. I assume the hotel was renovated rather recently. Very quiet in the night, no traffic. Ok breakfast which we had on the terrace.

Excellent location within the old town of Visby right next to the medieval city wall, and about 1.5km from the ferry terminal. This modern, chic boutique hotel surpassed all my expectations. The hotel is beautifully decorated and very clean and respectable. Staff were always very courteous and helpful. Room was spacious enough with everything we needed. Slept really well and... More

Clean, nice room, kind and helpful staff. Breakfast unmatched by any other places I've stayed. Walking distance to everything, the hotel is located close to Almedalen and the botanical garden. Some noise from the bar/street. Wifi stable and fast. Rent a car to see the island, it's cheap and easy.

We went to Visby for our silver anniversary and hotel Strandporten really made our stay very romantic and enjoyable. We got upgraded to a suite with a huge terrace overlooking the sea. The room was nicely decorated, the breakfast very good and they serve a lovely complimentary afternoon tea. And - location is great!

Hotel Strandporten was a small, very charming hotel right in the center of the old town. We could walk two blocks to the beach or three blocks to the cathedral. the ferry terminal was about six blocks away. The staff was incredibly helpful and our rooms was very well designed with a great bathroom. No two rooms are the same... More

We stayed for two nights in high season and found the Hotel Strandporten to be a gem. Super convenient inside the walled city walking distance from the ferry, the gardens, museums, churches and central square. It was clean, well furnished and the staff was super. A second floor dining area served breakfast and afternoon tea with a garden terrace. Visby... More

The hotel strandporten is situated in the middle of the ancient walled city of Visby on Gotland Island, Sweden. The hotel is lovely, with impeccably presented breakfast and afternoon tea, and wonderfully attentive and adorable staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Discover Hotell Strandporten, a hotel with beautiful surroundings in the middle of the World Heritage Town Visby on the island of Gotland. The view over the park area Almedalen is wonderful and you can also see the sea from some of the rooms. In Visby you find many entertainments, restaurants and culture at a walking distance.We hope that you will enjoy the warmth and the cosiness and make you feel at home while staying here – even though you are far away from your home. We believe that our guests choose to stay here because the hotel is small with a personal touch. After noon tea is served every day 3-6 pm. We offer some coffee, tea and some sweets in the main building. Free of charge of course.All of our 20 individually designed rooms have bathrooms with tiles on the walls and Gotlandic marble flooring. ... more   less
