“A great place to stay in Kalmar!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

We were very impressed with this hotel; a lovely (smallish) room with a terrace from which the lively harbour could be observed and enjoyed. Efficient and friendly staff and last but not least,the food and beverages. Both breakfast and a light buffet are included in the price of the room, remember that! Also included in the room price is tea and coffee throughout the day.At first glance the room price seemed a bit steep but with dinner and breakfast included, it's great value for money.
The dinner buffet consisted of a really fresh and abundant salad selection, one hot dish, cheeses, breads and crackers,dessert, tea and coffee; all were delicious. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have seen; the emphasis is on healthy eating so you'll need to go somewhere else if you're into full "cooked breakfasts"; the warm choice consists of scrambled eggs and bacon/sausages.I really appreciated the wide variety of yoghurts with different toppings, cheeses, ham, fresh fruit, different types of bread and piping hot coffee.
This is definitely where I will stay next time I go to Kalmar, no doubt about it. Hats off to Packhuset!

Room Tip: If you want to experience the harbour at close hand, ask for a room on the ground floor, facing the...

This hotel is built in a house from 1700 used in the harbour. Kalmar is a very old city, and both the old city walls with gates and the castle is will preserved and part of the down-town area.
The hotel is really water-front and at breakfast and evening meal you can sit over the water and look at the yachts in the harbour just feet away. In the room price is a nice brekfast, coffee/tea any time and en evening buffet included. It is a bit more expensive than other hotels in Kalmar, but for what you get it is worth every penny.
Rooms at lower floor have some of them a nice balcony. Rooms on 2nd and 3rd floor have a view of the Öland bridge and the island of Öland.
Shopping mall and nice restarants just next door.

Only thign they need to do soon is to paint the exterior and some parts of the rooms, not urgent but in a year or so it will look bad. But maybe it is fixed when you read this.

Room Tip: Ask for sea-view

My wife and I stayed here for one night on our trip through Sweden. It was a beautiful, clean, and had friendly staff. The views of Oland were beautiful and the meals that were included were delicious. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

We spent 3 nights here in July 2014. We found the accommodation clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The price included a buffet meal in the evening which was good quality. Breakfast was also very good with a wide selection of food to choose from. Highly recommended.

Our room was on the first floor, right on the water. The room seemed to try for the effect of the interior of a ship, with a low ceiling and supporting column, so the room was a bit cramped for two. A nice small balcony on the water, but people walking by on the dock were practically in your room. And of course being on the water in a working port there will be noise at odd hours from ships loading. The location is excellent for visiting the castle and the old town center - easy walking. We didn't use the dinner service, but the breakfast was very good, served in a clean, bright area. The staff was professional and polite. Parking is convenient, a large city lot right in front of the property.

We enjoyed our stay at the Clarion Collection Hotel, Kalmar. The room was very clean and comfortable and a little bit different to usual hotel rooms. The location was very good with water views and easy walk into the city centre. The service was good. The food (breakfast and dinner with coffee in between) was very good. Parking was fine. WiFi worked well.

we stopped in Kalmar one night to see the town, and rest on our drive from Stockholm to Copenhagen. The hotel looked very cute, and seemed clean in the lobby areas. The staff had a great lunch/dinner laid out, and the hotel overlooked the harbor. The room seemed a little dusty - like perhaps it had not been used or thoroughly cleaned in a while. Well, I woke up in the middle of the night with a spider crawling on my face - I jumped out of bed and yelped - terrifying! I vowed to sleep in the car the rest of the night and my travel companion had to coax me into staying put. For that reason I would NOT recommend this hotel. Given the other options in the area, I would probably suggest skipping an overnight stay in Kalmar and trying Malmo a little further away.
