I think we have stayed at every hotel in Kalmar, one time or another, except at Witt. And I have always thought all Kalmar hotels overpriced. Until now. Witt is still not inexpensive. But the staff is very service-minded (unlike at some hotels that I can think of where the staff makes you feel like you intrude on their privacy when you ask to pay...), the breakfast buffet is good and well tended (son loved fresh waffles for breakfast!), and the location is very good.
That the rooms are only average and that the corridors and lifts seems to have seen better days is a small thing in light of a staff who make you feel at ease. Even the breakfast felt peaceful, no pressure for hurry or worry over not getting this or that item on the buffet.
I might add that we got a large room, as we need an extra bed for our son. I think some of the "normal" rooms are rather small but ours had ample floorspace.
A pleasant place to stay and of the down-town options in Kalmar this is the one I'd recommend.
