Best Western Solhem Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is centrally located just beside the ancient city wall and in a lush park yet close to everything in gorgeous city of Visby. Rich breakfast buffet is included as well as free coffee and tea in the cosy lobby.

We booked a standard room and it was a nice size for two people. The hotel has several levels with an elevator available. We did not know at the time we booked online that we had booked a pet friendly room. There is a separate building with two or three pet friendly rooms behind the main hotel. We took the room and immediately found ourselves next to several small noisy dogs every time we opened the outer door to the building or the door to the room. We changed rooms right away and our stay was very quiet for the four nights in Visby. The hotel is at one end of the town just outside the city wall and the fair was at the other end; this made for a little too much walking over cobblestone streets for us. But the hotel is near a main shopping street in town with shops and restaurants. The service in the hotel was good with a couple of exceptions; mainly a couple of the front desk staff who could not answer some questions. For example, my husband asked if the medieval walls light up at night for photography and the staff person did not know. One staff person also marked our Visby map with a shopping street near the hotel but it was the wrong street. The hotel's full breakfast buffet had the standard fare including cereals, scrambled eggs, meats and cheeses, etc. In addition, the hotel has several light meals available in the lobby for lunch or dinner. Overall, we had a very comfortable stay at this hotel.

Hotel is located right by the Old city walls, near to the centre of Visby and just 5 minutes from ferry terminal. Comfortable rooms, some with balcony and sun-chairs. Good breakfast, but maybe little too crowded in the breakfast room in the morning. Parking in front of the hotel is free but nearly always occupied, parking in the backyard costs 80 Kr. Carpets in the common areas. Small nice souvenir shop in the lobby. We had nice and comfortable stay here.

Great location, nice breakfast, clean, friendly staff. Close to ferry and literally just outside the walls of Visby. 5 min walk to city center. Extra plus is the availability of dedicated parking with charger for electric cars. Improvement potential: beds a little hard, rooms could be better sound proofed

Island Games 2017 was held in Gotland this year and our team spent a week at this hotel. The room was decent with a small kitchenette included. No a/c required given the temperature. Liquid soap dispenser is in the shower. No complaints about the room itself. We did have to kill 3 small spiders and didn't get fresh towels twice. I know the hotel was full with athletes so understandable. The magic for this hotel is the front desk. Their staff are extremely attentive and ensure guests are treated as guests. We had transportation issues that were ironed out quickly and daily ice requests were a breeze. The property is located near to the lovely town, thus walking distance to restaurants, stores, etc. bicycles also available for rent at 160/day. Very good wifi coverage. Breakfast had some options and most were fed properly to perform. I would recommend.

It's a perfect place to stay at during the GGN weekend (Gotland Grand National). This was my third year at this hotel. There is no restaurant at the evenings (not that I know of anyhow) but there are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. Personally I like Bistro Torget! However, at the hotel they still have food which you can bring to your room or eat in their nice lounge. This year, after the race when I was rather tired (I didn't feel like going out) I had their Ceasar Salat and a small bottle of red wine which I brought to my room and it was perfect! I then fell asleep like a little baby in their nice bed... Zzzzz... The personell are very kind and caring about you and I can really recommend this hotel!

very nice, friendly atmosphere, good service, wonderful views, wonderful location, great breakfasts. We stayed here in November, 2016 and we adored it for its cozy sitting hall, friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely recommend it to others also

We stayed for 2 nights in early September. Great location we thought just outside the wall. We used our Best Western points and found the hotel to be better than we imagined it would be, rooms were quite acceptable. Breakfast buffet is expansive, can be busy at times. Hotel was quiet, reception staff plenty helpful.

I thought the hotel was great and it was just right for me and my husband. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great, quiet place and not far from the sea. I highly recommend it. It made my stay in Visby that more enjoyable.

Well located with clean rooms and friendly service but limited bar and no resturant except breakfast. Not bad but 3 star at best. Close to town and ferry. Would have to consider a 4 star if returning with a decent bar.
