Spent three days and two nights in Gotland at the Slottsbacken. Location is terrific, a short walk from the ferry. Breakfast is excellent. Staff is friendly, but only there until 6 pm. Gave good recommendation on car rental, suggesting the "rent-a-wreck" agency, which saved us lots of money. Quaint and old, but totally refurbished for modern guests. Value is also...

We booked a two night stay at Slottsbacken in a classic room and the hotel was lovely decorated and newly refurbished. The staff was also lovely and breakfast great. The rooms however are tiny!!! In the room that we stayed there was not room for anything else but a bed. There was no closet to hang our clothes and no...

Such a beautiful hotel in a great spot, very close to Destination Gotland ferries. Comfortable rooms, rich & tasteful breakfast with welcoming and very helpful staff. I'll definitely come again, not just to stay in Hotel Slottsbacken but for Visby too. One of the best places I've been to, locals are very lucky to live here...

Very nice hotel. Clean with all amenities that you need I especially liked the small cooky table with traditional butter based Swedish coffee cookies. Helpful staff, good location and a very nice breakfast.

Be quiet little hotel meticulously kept and it tended to extremely clean well-appointed in the old archives building. Free breakfast every morning fresh and refilled as necessary. Excellent and attentive front desk staff would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We spent the past weekend in Visby and stayed in this small gem of a hotel. The location is perfect to visit the inner town and close to the boat harbour. The rooms are spotless with a large comfortable bed. The staff were very helpful in recommending a few good restaurants.

I really enjoyed my stay at Slottsbacken. Small and cosy hotel with nice clean rooms. Plesant staff and very good breakfast. Good location within tha walls. in august, the room could get a bit hot. There was a fan but no other form of airconditoning.

Hotel Slottsbacken is ideally located within the walls of the old town, walking distance to all the local attractions, restaurants, and the sea front. The hotel itself is fairly new and very stylish - we had a top floor room with bedroom on a mezzanine floor, equipped with jacuzzi and fantastic shower room. But this is not a place of...

The hotel is an old store which has retained its character. Really friendly welcome, lovely rooms (if a little compact). Staff can't do enough for you, and you can walk everywhere. Breakfast is traditionally Swedish with no restrictions on anything. A view from our room at sunset
