“Would not rate this hotel as 4 star”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

This hotel, whilst clean was not 4*. The bedrooms are small as was the bathroom, no frills at all. We reported a bedside light which was out and this was not changed. One side of the bed had no bedside table, that's how tight it was! The bathroom was both tired and basic, no robes or slippers and squeezy bottles of soap attached to the wall. One morning the alarms went off with no explanation until we asked and were then told a cleaner had set them off. The breakfast is OK but again no service, all done by machine and self service. This is a business hotel for perhaps one nights stay in my opinion, lacks charm and is soulless. Shame as it is in a lovely part of town.

Reviewed 10 February 2012

I spent a few nights here in February 2012. The staff is very friendly and the location is perfect. But the room was a huge disappointment. It was freezing! I was given an extra (very small) radiator by the lady at the reception, but the room was still very cold. The room did not have a wardrobe, which I found very strange. I had high expectations for this hotel but this was my first and most likely the last time I choose to live here during my visits to Örebro.

Nice staff, warm and welcoming in an businesslike way. Nice room, a little small for a doubleroom Superior, but very clean and with a nice view over the river and castle. Good breakfast, not exellent but in the topp layer.

My wife and I had an excellent 4 night stay our room ovelooked the river and castle on the fourth floor and was comfortable albeit a little small but on holiday does it really matter .The buffet breakfast was fantastic and the choice of both hot and cold foods was mind boggleing.My only small complaint is that our room was over the Bishops arms pub on the ground floor and it was a little noisy late at night however I would certainly reccommend the hotel and if I journey back to Sweden and Orebro would make a point of booking this hotel again

Reviewed 27 July 2011

Reception: service was very good

Public area: our room wasn't in the main building, and that another buildings public area's was very dark (walls are dark orange and lightning is dark). And elevator was very slow, sometimes we think at that doesn't move when we waiting it.

Room: room was big and very nice. And bed was very soft. Air condition was little bit too hot for my taste and weather was in Örebro in that time +25. Bathroom was also good size. I am not any fan of baths and that's why in my mind bath is so 80's. Shower was bad and when was in shower lots pf water goes to batroom floor and after that there was little flood. That water stays in floor long time. When we arrive to our room we don't have any hamdtowels in our room.

Breakfast: breakfast was very basic. It offers local products.

Reviewed 24 November 2010

This hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk (with toddler and luggage!) from the central station in Örebro. When we arrived, the reception staff were businesslike but helpful in a sort of understated way.

We payed extra for one of the larger rooms on the ground floor, yet were still pleasantly surprised by its size and elegance. Even though it was on the ground floor, it was high up enough to offer a wonderful view over the castle and river.

But a word of warning - if you're in a room facing the castle, you're also directly above a pub and drinking tent. People might be talking and smoking outside till all hours, forcing you to keep your windows shut.. So avoid such a room in summer and/or weekends (unless you plan on joining them!).

Dinner was courtesy of the hotel's own restaurant - pricey but excellent Swedish fayre (venison, elk, locally sourced mushrooms, berries, veg etc.). Superb service, good wine recommendations and they let us share our meals with our toddler so she could eat real food instead of the junk that's normally forced on kids.

During our stay, the staff were a little scarce but always very helpful. Kettle? No problem. Warm up some food? No problem. Oh, and did I mention the beds? Amongst the best I've ever slept on.

Breakfast was absolutely ok. Good coffee, freshly squeezed juice, average breads, good salad, cheese, ham, sausages, yoghurts and fruit. Mediocre cooked food but ok. Nice spacious dining room with lovely view - we spent ages there!

Our visit left a good feeling. I really liked the unobtrusive and understated but very genuine hospitality on offer at this hotel and can recommend it.

The Elite is a remarkable hotel right in the centre of Orebro. Our room was facing the castle and the views were smashing. The room was spacious and modern. The breakfast was somewhat different than we had expected. You had to find your own seating. Staff were somewhat scarce but the food was generally ok. It was buffet style which was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. Even so we had a pleasant stay here. We did not have evening meals at the hotel as there were lots in the city to chose from.
