Best Western Gustaf Wasa Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in the Wasa during a ski weekend in nearby Romme. The hotel in itself is nice and clean although the rooms are in desperate need of refurbishment. The hotel details on the site claim that there is an indoor /outdoor pool, but be warned this is not true. After finding the steam room that also had a hot tub I checked with reception who confirmed 'no pool'. This was not a disaster as the rest of the stay was still very pleasant, finished off by a fantastic breakfast! If I were in the area again I would probably go back.

The reception staff were friendly and efficient and check in/out was a breeze. The was perhaps not the most modern in terms of interior design but it was clean and quiet with a comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good and I left fuller than I intended.

The hotel is in the center of Borlange so its easy to go everywhere. Interior of hotel is, how to say, quite strange. Combination of rustical and modern parts is not so pretty and some parts were under construction. The room was tiny. I did not expected dance hall but its really small. But interior was comfy - flat tv, fluffy bed, small table and chair. Temperature was okay, also the breakfast (continental) was great. One thing i didnt like - the curtain in shower was old and dirty.

A wonderful hotel for both pleasure and business. It is fresh and clean and the staff are always nice and helpful. Parking is easy outside of the hotel and they have a nice gym, pool and sauna. The breakfast is superior and the US & Mexican restaurant Broken Dreams (connected to hotel) has a very tasty menu. I particularly like the bed comfort at this hotel making it my favorite in the mid of Sweden! // Per

It's an ok business hotel. The rooms are dated and worn, the bathroom do the job but the towels are tiny. Breakfast is usual Scandinavian affair. The gym is not bad for a BW. The rest of the hotel is worn and frayed, that said some renovation started while I was there, so maybe improvement is on the way.

Hotel location to town was perfect walking distance! Rooms were fine, no issues! Dinner wasn't amazing, but breakfast was good! Had tea and coffee facilities in reception, including biscuits! Location to train station is right across the road easy!

Welcoming staff. Good breakfast. The hotel is clean and tidy but needs a facelift. I would have appreciated either a bigger towel or an extra one. The attached restaurant Broken Dreams, is not recommended. Low value of money and meager menu. There are better places out on the town, or a burger joint.

This hotel have no negative aspects. - Nice and social staff - Great breakfast - Nice resturant in american style - Nice rooms, well equipt with tv, comfy beds etc. - Newly built spa, including sauna and a jacuzzy - Only 5 min to city center and 20 min to the hills of skiing

Nice hotell for weekend in Borlänge. I came with family to ski in Romme just outside the town. We appriciated a nice resturant and a brand new relax department. Both new rooms and som in older style. Ask for new rooms when booking. realy comfortable king size beds in the new room.

We were travelling from Oslo to Gävle in Sweden on the day before Midsummer, a day with strong traffic. We therefore chose to drive via Borlange in order to avoid too much stress on the road. We chose the Best Western Gustav Wasa.The hotel was awarded for its architecture. By all means, it is well deserved. However, already before entering the front door you see that the most important first impression is shabby. Our room was clean, actually no further complaints, but you have this feeling it just is a run-down place. The Wasa restaurant is closed at least it got some furnitures which are not fitting in. The pool was closed as under construction. The water basin in the garden wasn`t cleaned for years, I guess. The other restaurant was obviously outsourced as the staff didn`t even know when breakfast was served. It was a kind of a Western saloon and they managed well. People and ofcourse families seemed to enjoy their food and the entire atmosphere, and so did my wife and myself. The breakfast is probably the reason for blaming for bad management. I do not want to be too picky, but it would extend this report out of proportions and this just after a one nights stay. Again, it could be a very nice hotel if management would look to details. You are staying in hotel from the mid-80ies and almost nothing has happened since a part from the flat tv which was placed on the wall in front of the beds - I would have gone for a smarter placement. Now, the rate they were asking for was in compliance with what we experienced. I think, the people from Best Western should talk to the hotel management.
