Having business in the area, booked two nights. Summer period, so the Hotel full and so was the garage. Had to park 200 meters away. Swift check-in, single room with queen size bed. Very clean, fast internet, coffee facilities, big TV and modern rather small bathroom. Small fridge. Bed very comfortable. Great location. Breakfast above average and will be back just for the Bacon. Many children during Holidays. Back if in the area.

Perfect stay for downtown Jönköping Bathtub instead of shower - not my preference Had room in 3rd floor, that is the lowest floor for getting view on the lake ( there is a building inbetween hotel and lake) lake view means also view to main road ( there was not much traffic the time we stayed there)

We came by car and after some trouble in the streets we did find the hotel and the parking garage just left of the entrance to the hotel. Very modern style Clean and nice rooms. Breakfast was nice, wifi was ok but not excellent. Nice outside area for us smoking people in the summer.

I have been visiting Best Western Hotels before and I know what to expect from them. Decent quality and good design for no-frills rooms service that could be better. To my surprise the Best Western in Jönköping turned out to be far above my expectations and one of the best hotels I have visited in Sweden. Important to note: we stayed in the second floor of the hotel, which has been renovated recently. Other floors might be much worse. The location of the hotel is perfect, as it is very central, near to some modern stores with cool architecture and very close to the water. And also close to some shopping streets with very beautiful wooden buildings. A great area all in all. There is a parking in the hotel (130kr a day) but some 100 meters away there is a large public parking for around 100kr per day. The reception was large, fresh and cool. It had a bar and also the hotel restaurant that looked awesome, with some bistro-like decoration and big windows nearly allowing to see the lake. The people working at the reception were super-friendly (like most of the people in that region of Sweden). A great touch in these times was that the reception is open all day long, which gives that extra safety. Our room was, as mentioned, on the second floor towards a small inner patio, not towards the lake. I can only assume the ones towards the lake must have breathtaking views. But the small patio was nice, renovated, with some decoration on the walls and some cool lights and very calm. I guess if you live above the second floor the window would not be directly to the wall... In any case (and I hate hotel windows to interior courts and similar) this was not a problem at all. It felt open and nice. The room had a decent size and had a simple but nice decoration with chipboard furniture with nice design. It did not feel cheap or ugly, just durable. In our case we got a double room with two separate beds. One complain was that between the beds there was a small wooden table that made it very hard to put the two beds together (it was me and my wife)... but the receptionist later told me that the table could be removed for that purpose. I did not manage to. The beds were very comfortable, the room was very clean, a good flat tv, lots of storage space... and there is even two free soda bottles for the guests. I just can say I had a great night of sleep. The bathroom was modern and clean... the only minor minus is the shower, which had one of those plastic doors that close together to avoid the water spreading... not a fan of those to be honest. The breakfast was the usual affair but really well assorted except the orange juice which was very poor. Scrambled, eggs, bacon, meatballs, a few sorts of cheese, fresh fruit, yoghurt, waffles, cream, sill, salmon... Excellent! Another fantastic touch... they had gluten-free bread and muesli and also lactose-free yoghourts and milk. Really good breakfast in a nice room. Totally recommended. So all in all one of the best experiences I have had in a hotel in Sweden, where the quality is sometimes dismal compared to what I am used to in Spain.

Best business Hotel in Jönköping. Central location, service minded staff, comfortable rooms, really nice Swedish breakfast, secure parking. Just one minus: it is not simple to find your way driving by cat

Love the hospitality of John Bauer hotel. I was left a bit unsatisfied in my earlier stay but this time when they mistakenly lost my personal thing, the owner and manager personally helped find it. 💯 recommend

In this area I always choose John Bauer Hotel to stay for 1 or 2 nights. Perfect location. Very Nice Restaurant. Perfect Breakfast. Also glad that it belongs to Best Western. So I can use my member points over the whole world.

Good and nice room overlooking the lake. The room had a comfortable double bed and a bathtub which is always preferable. Walking distance to shopping streets and good resturants. Plus are, good breakfast and parking in the house.

This hotel has provided a very good base to relax and have a good sleep. The rooms are spotless clean and the rooms has all necessary equipment. The reception are very helpful and the breakfast is outstanding! I highly recommend.

I stayed at this hotel almost every week for at least one night. It was my second home. Lovely hotel with great standard. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Good restaurant, centrally located in Jönköping. walking street just 2 minutes walk away. Gym, shopping and cafes all around the corner. I will definitely recommend this hotel for families, business and couples visitors.
