“Fit for purpose with convenient Harbour Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Pluses include late check in (handy if you are coming on the train from Kastrup/Copenhagen Airport) and central location - easy to reach the centre or to take a beautiful walk/jog along the scenic coast line; good breakfast
Negatives - expensive for a basic if spacious room (however you could make this comment about many hotels in Sweden)

Room Tip: Don't take a room ending close to x20 - means you end up walking right around the floor (set aro...

I have stayed at the hotel and each time I am amazed by the friendly and smiling staff. The rooms needs A renovation and are not up to date.
Rooms for improvements: better working desk, more plugs for charging pc, phones, iPads etc, The internet is free, but VERY complicated to access as You need A code for each devise and The code is valid for 24 hours. Last stay
I managed to connect only The first Day. The hangers Can not be removed from the closet, which is anoying. Coffee in The room would be apprecisted as butter at The breakfast buffet would be ( instead of only Margarine/ Bregott.

Spend some time here on a business trip in March 2013. Had two nights in this hotel and it was okay for that short stay. Rooms are quite big with king size bed, bathroom is old-fashioned as the furniture. Reception, hall and restaurant is modern and inviting. Service was fine and well organized.

Room Tip: stay away from the rooms next to the elevators

This is a very basic hotel with limited restaurant options. It is within walking distance of the city square and several restaurants. Vegetarians: There is a Chinese restaurant up the street that will prepare tofu for you upon request.

I'm not sure what else is available in the area, but I would investigate other options before staying here again.

I've just came back from Sweden. I must say that I stayed in better hotel previously.
It is a very pleasant structure to be to see something different. I mean, each of the floor has a common balcony (some of the rooms have a view to the inside court) from which you can see the restaurant on the ground floor. Each of the floor is characterized by a different colour: pink, green, light blue.
I slept in an amazing way, but i should recommend to renovate the bathrooms.
I heard from all of my colleagues that they had problem with the shower...
Please do it!!!

Run of the mill Swedish hotel. Cleanliness leaves something to be desired: black mould patches developing in the shower, breakfast tables so and so. Worst pancakes ever. Staff friendly though.
