I booked this hotel in downtown Arboga on the recommendation of the company I was visiting. Glad I made the decision to stay here! Anna the owner is just great - warm, outgoing, enthusiastic about the town and what there is to see - she spend a lot time, twice, on the local map with me so I wouldn't miss anything.
Friday night I had dinner at the small French restaurant on site - the food was hot, tasty, quick and very reasonably priced - and the Chef is very personable.
I spent the weekend here as I was looking for some quiet time, instead of another 'big city'. Saturday, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the sights Anna had pointed out. Forewarned: on Sunday, they roll up the sidewalks and nothing except a pizza shop is open. So, I took the opportunity to go for a long walk out of the town and through the woods. And ate pizza when I returned :-) .
This hotel has been in the family for quite a while and is in the old-town section of Arboga (as opposed to the neighborhoods where people live). The good news is that the room that I had was much larger that I expected (I expected a typical tiny European hotel room), and was large enough to be very comfortable and easy to do some work (free internet!). Good, typical European breakfast is served - lots of different items for different tastes.
This is not a party town (but the old town's only pub is across the street :-) ) and therefore the room was wonderfully quiet and restful - no street noise (ever) and no blaring music - a great quiet weekend, which is what I was looking for.
I travel for business 2-3 weeks every month and have done so for 30 years. This hotel exceeded all my expectations and I will definitely stay there when I go back again in the fall.
