This has some real old town charm - it's a real warren of a building down a sidestreet just five minutes from the main square. There's no lift and a lot of steps if you have a lot of luggage. The room was large, airy, plenty of storage space, good WiFi and a huge bathroom. Fridge/minibar. Loads of TV channels....

Quaint quirky hotel in the heart of the old town just minutes away from bars & restaurants. My original room was on the seventh floor but after asking politely I was able to change that to a lower floor on the following day. The main hotel has five large rooms for families. The other rooms are in a separate building...

I spent almost a week at Rixwell Olevi Hotel on an autumn vacation. My room was in an annex across a small courtyard. The room was cosy and spacious. The was no AC, but it had windows. The bath room was spacious and had a bath tub. The room is not luxury, but quit alright. The room was cleaned every...

Hidden at the bottom of some steep steps is Olevi Residents. The restaurant is nicely decorated and candlelit. The waiter was very pleasant and the service as quick as you'd expect if the food is all cooked fresh. We had cheese balls and dumplings to share and then Rissoto and Chicken schnitzel. All served hot and very tasty. Would recommend....

We chose this hotel after seeing their websites. Lovely building from the 14. th century with the perfect location in the Old town. This hotel is not for guests with bad feet because there is no lift. Our room was on the first level and it was a spacious double bed room with a good bathroom. Staff were polite and...

We arrived here by default as the booked hotel had experienced a flood! The hotel, in the old part of town and very near the main square was unique in de or and setting.

The hotel is quite cheap despite the good central location. That's all about positive things in this Hotel. For the rest the rooms are awful, and quite dirty. The smell inside is disgusting like somebody just finished to ate gorgonzola cheese and spread it on the walls. The receptionist should remember she is working in a touristic business not in...

I'm glad I didn't read the grim reviews of this ancient, funky and sometimes confusing hotel. Or I would have found somewhere more conventional to lay my head ... and would thereby have missed a treat. Yes, it has many stairs, steps - and even a trip across a freezing courtyard for some guests to contend with. No, there is...
