Good hotel choice in Visby

For those who visit Visby the Clarion hotel is the best choice. It ticks most of the boxes one hopes for in regional Sweden. The location can't be beaten.Its in the centre of the old town,close to the port and a 10 minute taxi ride to the airport. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. The hotel is built across 5 old buildings so the numbering system is amusing but the newer rooms are further away from reception but are worth the walk. Staff are very friendly and are keen to offer suggestions for food or sightseeing tips. Breakfast is plentiful and tasty. I love herring in the morning. The soft boiled eggs were perfect. We had a great meal in the restaurant that I have reviewed separately. My only negative is the Spa. It's been closed for months as other readers have pointed out and it won't be open for months. From my mind that is false advertising to suggest a facility is available yet won't be available for some 6 mths. Put a notice on your web site advising closed until.... I actually booked the hotel on the basis of the pool and Spa as I was looking forward to a swim and splash!

this hotel has a great location and you are within walking distance to harbor and waterfront and also within short walking distance to many other sites. Hotel reception is something special and also lobby bar, which is nicely decorated with all chandeliers and classy furniture peaces. now about room! this hotel still have classical single bed room! room is spacious, but single bed is single bed... plus blanket seemed also just enough. person longer than 1,90m would not be able to sleep at the single bed and also would not be able to cover with blanket. other issue bathroom... it is nicely decorated with historical sink and water tank, but a little bit tight... and final thing - breakfast, which was rich and with wide choice of various delights.

A bit disappointed

I'm actually a bit disappointed in this hotel. The service was good, the location is excellent but there where some problems with the room and breakfast. It's located in the middle of the city and you're close to everything and if you eat/drink much in the evening you only have to walk downhill and not uphill, which is great! :D The breakfast was tasty, but the spread was quite small and only scrambled eggs, bacon and small chicken sausages (which didn't taste good) as the warm dishes. They had some fresh fruit (which truly was fresh) and some bread, yoghurt and such. Tasty but smaller than I expected. And then we had the room we where staying in. We chose the "Deluxe twin" rooms and as requested got a duplex style room (like I said - the service was good). We had a huge window with a great view! No complaints there. You could see both from the living room and the bedroom which was nice. The problem with this was that the air-con had trouble with keeping the big two rooms warm (probably partly due to the window). Even at full blast we thought it was a bit chilly. This might be good during the summer when it's hotter outside, but for us... well... And then there was the bed. Granted this was a twin-room but we still expected that you could push the two beds next to each other (like we could see in the pictures for the superior twin-rooms), but that was a no go. And the beds where pretty slim as well. It was really a strange setup for a room that obviously was aimed at couples that you really couldn't do much together in the room. If you're a couple then go for a moderate double room - the deluxe just isn't worth it. Unfortunately. The restaurant is nice - you can find it here under the name Kitchen & Table.

Dear guest, We love to hear that our service was good, the location was excellent and other things which have been great! Thanks! But we are very sorry to hear that you are disappointed in our hotel concerning your room. The "Deluxe twin" rooms as you say has a huge window with a great view! We have never heard before that the air-con had trouble with keeping the big two rooms warm. Next time we really wish you´d tell us while here. And of course you can put the beds together in a lot of our deluxerooms. Comparing with a lot of our moderate rooms I have to say that deluxe is really worth it, concering a lot of matters. We hope you´ll be back back soon so we can proove that. Warmest regards Sanna Kleven Managing Director Clarion Hotel Wisby

The hotel is old and very nice, with so much atmosphere. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was great (especially the teas). We got our room before the official check-in time, and when we asked for help with a late-night tea in our room we got everything we needed. I liked our short stay very much.

A Pleasant Place Handy to the Ferry Harbor & old Visby

Saturday, April 04, 2015, Illinois, college_prof_11

My husband and I, along with my sister, enjoyed staying on a recent visit to the island two nights in this hotel, even though, disappointingly, the spa was still under renovation (after three months?) and the lobby was somewhat disrupted with construction work. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms we got well-appointed, although they had no coffee service or other food-related in-room amenities (except the over-priced and anyway stale snacks). My husband's and my third floor room was larger and had a sofa (pull-out bed), and a nice view of the old city, but it also overlooked the bar/club on the ground floor, which even on a Sunday night had a band, making sleep difficult initially. But the many positives outweighed those few aspects, for among the strengths of the Clarion Visby: excellent, varied, graciously served breakfast; very pleasing decor and comfort of the room,; and convenient location (we walked from the ferry and all around town from there, and were glad to find the very helpful tourist office a stone's throw away). The free wifi was also a plus, though my sister could get it only in one corner of her room and the access involved accepting "cookies' that led to lots more email spam the following week or so. Another plus: the really great Gotland museum is just a 5 minute walk away and there's a women's craft cooperative right across the street from the hotel (which made for some very interesting local shopping, as well as an Avis rental car place (not open much while we were there, so we got a car from a used car place on the harbor--a good deal) There are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance, although we didn't try the hotel restaurant (which we thought both over-priced and pretentious, based on the menu and its stated aspirations to a "Manhattan" (?)-style cuisine). We'd recommend the place though wouldn't advise it for travelers on a budget (as it's comparatively expensive) unless you have some Choice points saved up to use, as we did.
