We stayed two nights at this great hotel off-season in November and it was a great stay. The rooms are spacious with a big bathroom. The rooms have comfortable beds and modern interior, a rather small TV though for some reason? The breakfast is excellent but one morning the warm dishes were rather cold for some reason, hopefully a one-time thing, the other morning they were fine. Apart from that the selection is good and you will leave satisfied. The bar is a lovely place in a small courtyard with a glass ceiling, excellent for a drink before dinner. One thing though, as most guests arrive at the same time by the boat I wonder why the reception only is manned by one person at these times, there was quite a queue when we arrived. Apart from that the staff is very helpful and friendly. Overall this is a very good hotel with nice rooms and a perfect location. Highly recommended!

We stayed at this hotel for the New Year night. Unlike many other places, it is a low season in Visby, thus perfect for those who want to keep it quiet for a change.
We arrived with a late boat after midnight and walked to the hotel which is not very far from the port (however we have been to Visby many times before, while those not familiar with the surrounding area might prefer a taxi).
The checkin went smooth, and we even got a room with a bathtub, as requested. The room was small, yet comfortable and had a view of the inner yard/garden of some sort. Reception was manned at all times, and we managed to buy a tube of toothpaste in the middle of the night when we realised that we didn't pack any.
Breakfast at the hotel was very good with lots of variety and the dining area was cosy. The restaurant by the hotel was however fully booked for the new year's night, but we found an alternative a short walk away which was as good as it gets.
And last, but not least, is the hotel's spa - the underground pool in the bizzare settings of the old cellar was fantastic! Most importantly, it was open on december 31 until quite late (remember, this is Sweden, where everything dies on a holiday). The pool access didn't cost that much, and neither did swimsuits we rented.
We have stayed at different hotels in Visby, and this by far is the best. I would love to stay there again during Medieval week, but unfortunately during high season this hotel is quite overpriced.

Stayed at the hotel during a weekend in december. Together with 8 friends I enjoyed the traditional Swedish christmas dinner at the hotel, it was wonderful and tasteful!!! After the dinner the bar was crowded and a two man band made the evening even more fun. The day after we left the hotel for the christmas market in the city. It was really joyful even though/because I have spent many summers on the Island. The hotel itself gave us a good night sleep in comfy bed. Nice serviceminded staff. Good spa section and wonderful bar in medieval environment.

The hotel is situated right in the middle of this medieval town. Parts of it remain from old times and gives it a charming mixture of old and new. The staff is extremely helpful and our room was very comfortable. We came early in the morning since our plane landed early. In spite of that the room was ready at 9 o´clock. We would like to return to this attractive hotel.

We recently stayed four nights in a Deluxe Room at the Hotel Wisby to celebrate my 40th birthday and had a marvelous time. The location is perfect, the hotel is clean and comfortable and nicely decorated, and the staff is friendly and helpful. My partner spent the several weeks leading up to our trip coordinating my b-day dinner with Mike, the hotel's event manager, and was very impressed with his responsiveness and attention to detail. The dinner, which included six of our friends in the 17th century "chapel" attached to the hotel, was flawless, from the decor to the food and waitstaff. It was the most memorable birthday I'm likely to ever have. The only downsides to the hotel: the rooms could stand a little modernizing (especially the bathrooms, which are a little too retro for their own good), and the setup of our room was a little funky, with the sitting area and bathroom on one level and the sleeping area on a lower level, which meant that you had to stagger up stairs in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Also, the breakfast room seemed a little chaotic, understaffed, and understocked some of the mornings we were there. Maybe it was because of the weddings and conferences going on. And it would be great if they could simplify their WiFi code, which is along the lines of "7E&hU8rT791," so it doesn't take 15 tries to get connected. But these are minor nitpicks that didn't detract from our overall experience. Our final impressions of the Wisby were overwhelmingly positive.

This hotel has an old world feel with modern amenities. Our king bed room overlooked a courtyard behind and was in the center of the city, where we could walk to the medieval walls and the main square of town. Nice, friendly service and a good breakfast. I would stay again, and would have liked to stay longer.

My parents from Japan came to visit me in Visby and I booked the best suite they offer at the Clarion Wisby hotel. It's the wedding suite. A maisonette. Upstairs is the main room with a living room, dining room, big bedroom and bathroom. They have a breathtaking view and very beautiful and romantic furniature. It is not decorated with modern style furniature. It's very classic. Warm and cozy but fancy as well with 2 chandeliers hanging from the ceiling! The bathroom is luxurious and you even have an extra bedroom down stairs. If you want to really treat someone special with something really generous, this is a wonderful place to book for your spouse, partner or parents! My parents are celebrating their golden anniversary soon next year!
