I am currently working in Karlskrona. Kalmar is a lovely town for a weekend break, so we were just chilling out really.
Nice rooms whit soffa, nice size of room. Good location o near to shops. Very nice stuff No minibar in room
Quiet room, slept well. Nice breakfast Slightly run-down. Floors in room was not swept
the location was perfect, the breakfast buffet was huge & excellent with many more different items than the usual, much more than we expected, front desk was helpful with directions, always tea & cookies downstairs the first night (out of 3) our room was not thoroughly cleaned (but when brought to the attention of the front desk the next time it was spotless)
The location of the hotel is good.
All very well
Style of the building and interior. Huge room, a lot of light everywhere (except the bar - it was too dim there). Rich breakfast. A lot of improvements for wheelchair users should be made
The Pub The pub to noisy to have dinner
Extremely helpful, pateint and friendly staff. Excellent well stocked breakfast buffet, very tasty. Decent size room, that was cleaned professionally every morning. Expected the single bed to be slightly larger and the pillows to be bigger and firmer. Overall though was a lovely stay and suited my needs.
The overall cleanliness was superb> The breakfast buffet was extremely well presented.Staff where very accomodating from the bar too the room service No
The friendly atmosphere. It was a bit chilly in the breakfast-room
Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and friendly staff. The lounge was very pleasant, and they were playing Christmas music. Breakfast was varied in content and plentiful, and delicious. There was no elevator and three floors of rooms.
Very comfortable hotel, with friendly staff. A really lovely place to stay and in a good location for all the amenities of the town. A little bit quiet in the lounge areas. Could have had a better stocked bar and a little background music to create an atmosphere, as it's a beautiful but underused area.
Excellent facilities and tastefully decorated lobby and lounge common areas. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Location was excellent for the castle and a short walk to the shopping areas. No major issues but the stairs to the second floor annex are narrow and steep. Only an issue when carry large luggage pieces.
I liked the ambiance of the hotel. It was like an inn or bed and breakfast instead of a hotel. It had lots of pictures and antiques throughout the hotel which gave it the feeling of being in someone's home. The staff could be rather inconsiderate. loud music on the patio area.
The main part of the hotel is a beautiful old building.Staff were attentive . Our rooms were in a modern annex across the street - not so nice !
Close proximity to town centre. Friendly, helpfull staff and a comfortable bed.
Charming buildings. Fine breakfast included. Easy free parking at least when hotel is not busy.
Small room and bathroom but nice and clean.
Location and breakfast It doesn´t have a mini refrigerator and a telefone inside the room.
There was construction work going on which made sleeping after 7am impossible. Further to that there was quite a strong unpleasant smell in the bathroom. Also, the breakfast buffet was not refilled. Coming later you had just a smaller choice. Overall, not too bad but also not the best I had so far.
This hotel was very clean and appealing. The staff was most friendly and accommodating. It was a very pleasant stay.
Kalmar (and Best Western Kalmarsund Hotell) was at good place on route from Copenhagen to Grannkullavik to catch the ferry to Gotland/Visby. We can't blaim the hotel that what should have been a 10 day tour to Gotland ended up as a one day trip to Kalmar due to the ferry collision in Nynäshamn on the 23rd July 2009.
Enjoyed the swimming pool very much; the Oland island is a nicde place to relax.
Except maybe place really nothing special if you are not fan of whiskey. Absolutely bad value for money - paying almost 200 Euros per night for really not worth of it conditions like 15 sq.m. for family of 4 people and kitchen smell from the window whole day long. Never visit such places next time for such money - real value is about 50-70 Euros like in 1-2 star hotel or camping.
well situated, nice animation at dinner (singer) room standard not aligned with price ! Mostly unpleasant staff
Nice atmosphere, friendly personel not worth its 4 stars, expansive
The location was great, and the stay included breakfast. The hotel had a couple hot tubs outside which were well maintained. There were flies all over the breakfast buffet, and the rooms were very outdated and simple. Overall it felt like an overpriced motel, and the hotel staff was not friendly. I wouldn't stay here again.
Clean, large rooms; great breakfast and evening buffet; friendly and helpful staff. I recommend it to others. Our view was over the roof of a parking garage but we could see some of the water traffic.
It is directly near the inner city and one can see the Öland bridge out of the window, it is directly at the baltic sea! Parking is not for free....
Location was great. Could walk to downtown to shop or eat. Close to bridge to Oland and castle.
Breakfast and dinner were included in the package. The food was traditional Swedish food and good. The first room we were given was not clean. When we inquired about it, we were given another room. Also, we had requested a room with a balcony assuming that we would have a view of the bay. Instead, we were given a room looking out onto an alleyway. This was very deceptive. Also, the hotel was not easy to find even with maps and a GPS.
Very nice rooms. Location at the harbor. Elaborate breakfast buffet and diner.
Complimentary evening buffet,cenrtral locatiıon and well desigened rooms.
Nice location. Rooms not ready - sent up with all luggage to find it still dirty from previous guests. Rooms not as expected.
The hotel is situated at a very nice location. Ask for a seaview room.
This place should be rated very highly by all guests. There is a free evening meal that would have cost well over 600 sek in the city...included!!! Breakfast was truly exceptional. Even if not intending to travel to Kalmar...come here anyway! Did I mention we really enjoyed our stay here? We find no fault with this hotel
I liked especially the interior of the rooms and the location on the water. The idea of the hotelstaff to have a coffeemachine in the reataurant, operable for free coffee and tea at every time, is a very good idea. none
Astonishingly good breakfast, very enjoyable! Apparently, a high-class restaurant on the ground floor (though I did not dine in it). Friendly and helpful staff. Good location - just outside the main pedestrian street of Borgholm, 10 minuts from the harbour. Room was quite small, air-conditioner was old-fashioned and noisy. The shower cabin was cheap and old-fashioned, its doors could not be closed properly, meaning that all the floow in the bathroom was wet for most of the time.
Very helpful staff; lovely room and comfy beds; powerful shower; and you get to make your own waffles. The shower overflowed along the ledge in the bathroom and soaked our clothes! Otherwise nothing. Oh except the coffee machine at breakfast made nasty weak coffee.
A fantastic nice place with an incredibly comfortable bed. breakfast room
Good breakfast. The room described as a superior-room was a hole...unable to walk inside. The window gave on a roof. The air conditioning virtually absent and the mini-bar was empty.
The hotel structure is old,waking around you wouldn't think to be in a 4 star. The furniture of the room was quite new though, but the furniture alone is not enough to change the overall impression.
Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean rooms. Good location Parking area was small and full already at 17.00 hrs
Staff extremely courteous, friendly, and helpful; they promptly remitted over half a day's room price when the hot water failed our last morning. Breakfast buffet excellent; staff very cooperative about special food needs for our friends; adverse on-line breakfast reviews unwarranted. Bathroom heated floor/towel rods are nice luxury touches. Electronic room safe is a very convenient feature. Adverse guest reviews on-line did not fairly reflect the nice features of this hotel. It is on quiet street a short walk to the waterfront, town square, shops, restaurants, train station, and Kalmar city castle. Paid parking convenient in garage or in lot behind hotel. We'd definitely stay there again! (In fact, we extended 2 days beyond our plans.) The rooms were very nice and generally clean, but the hardwood floors were quite dusty and should have been cleaned better; our sox got very dusty from the floors. Also no electrical outlet in bathroom for shaver or hair-dryer, which was a minor inconvenience.
Not a very smart way of phrasing the question. It makes me think that people often complain! However, I had a very nice experience in the hotel and I have stayed there before and will use it again. Not for its charm, because it does not have that, but because of convenience and very friendly staff See above
Easy to find, very close to a big shopping center with Ikea and Baumart and a range of other shops Quite unpersonal
Location, big room, easy parking Menu was a bit limited and was like a motorway 2* motel. But the prices were OK and there should be something for most travellers.
It was on the road.
Great, excellent place. Great location, acroos the bridge form Oland.. Easy to get to with car. Free parking for car. Good selection for breakfast
Very nice and friendly stuff at reception internet for money
Convenience for getting to Oland and Kalmar. The restaurant served poor quality food. The room decor was 'tired', the towels were thin and one had a hole in it. The room wasn't made up properly after our first night.
When we arrive the room was clean but the floor was with sand etc. So I wait and then the next day the same thing. All bars were closed during the day. Even it was still the season. helpfull of the reception really poor.
Nothing No aircondition, greasy bathroom, yellow beds, lots of dust under beds, balkony that soon will fall down, crows on the balcony at night, no serviceminded staff, stupid bartenders, bad music
Good location, dining and breakfast. It is a basic seaside hotel with a bit outdated facilities, but in Borgholm one of the few decent choices. Free parking on site, as well as internet. The live music is a bit depressing, especially in off-season, but you might discover the new ABBAS... Bathroom could be refurbished, prices are a bit too high for the quality of the hotel
The pool The shower in the pool is old and dirty
Smooth check-in. Free carparking close/direct to the hotel.
Room standard disappointing for the price and not perfectly clean. Very loud music from the hotel disco every night until 1-2 am with many young party oriented guests. Pool hours too short and closing too ealy in the evening.
Comfort, cleanliness, breakfast. Too expensive.
Beautiful setting seaside. Outstanding breakfast (frukost). Live music -- very nice! Room was large but unfortunately not overlooking the sea. The staff was new and were not efficient in check in and check out and ran my credit card a couple times, resulting in a hold/possible fraud check -- also not flexible in reassigning us to a seaside room even though they appeared to be about 50% empty.
- a possibility to check in late then reception work hours; - no problem with kids' cots; free parking and free internet; - room service and clearness is too bad: there was dust floor and stiky table surface; - breakfast buffet is too poor; - it is rather 2-star hotel than 3-star; - recomended for no more then 1 night;
The breakfasts rooms and dining seperate
Very good service. Free internet. Nice surroundings. Pretty close to city centre (walking distance).
Room in an indipendent building, Close to the Oland bridge, wi-fi, free pc in the hall Nothing important
The hotel staff were excellent, very polite and helpful. The breakfast was good and I had no problems at all during my stay.
Calm, good breakfast Price too high for the category, looks more like a student room than a 3 star hotel,
Good location on the edge of Kalmar, interesting layout. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. No restaurant open in the evening, not a huge problem but was a little inconvenient.
This was a nice hotel to ga sleep for one night because we travelling from the nethelands to Kalmar. And after the night we stay at the klinta camping at kopingsvick. it was an great choise to stay at the Brofästet Hotell & Konferens. Bro!!!!
good value for money
There was only the breakfast that I really liked. The Hotel is located near the beach, that's also nice. The price way way too high. Also the star rating. This is a youth hostel and not a 3-star hotel. The rooms are small, we had fungus in our bathroom and the room was dirty.
