This was our fifth hotel in Sweden and our worst. In fact, the first hotel that fell short of delivering its product.
Reception was OK, with the receptionist friendly and helpful.
Parking is provided underground with a lift to the hotel rooms. Wi-fi included in room rate.
And once you step out of the lift to go to your room (we were on the 6th floor), that's when you realise that this place might not be up to the high standard we had previously encountered (and I'm talking 2 Best Western so nothing extravagant and a couple of others). The corridor presented as shabby (by Swedish standards and there was no 'chic' about it). The room continued this run-down appearance and delivered little: no toiletries (squeeze tubes of Lux soap and toilet paper was all), no tea/coffee making facilities, no bath mat. Every time nearby neighbours closed their door, our door rattled as if someone was coming through our door.
Two arm chairs was a bonus that failed to overcome the crappy appearance of the room.
Breakfast did not boost the hotel's rating: The cheese selection was good and that's as far as it went. The cereal selection was, in comparison to other hotels, below par. No fish on offer. Coffee out of a machine was rubbish (we've had coffee from other hotel breakfast buffets and it was good).
And the room cost more than Best Western rooms in other towns. If the room was two thirds the cost then I'd probably say it was OK for the price. As it was though: Very Disappointing. Go elsewhere.
