Recent guest reviews

Even though we have been to Sweden numerous times, this was our visit to Kalmar. We stayed at the Clarion Hotel Packhuset with our 8-year-old daughter and the hotel did not disappoint. The hotel was a little difficult to find at first as the entrance is located within a courtyard, however, once we stepped inside, we received a warm welcome. A buffet style dinner was included as well as breakfast, both were delicious. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The hotel is centrally located next to a shopping centre and our room overlooked the harbour which was very picturesque. The town centre was within walking distance and all main attractions, including Kalmar Castle. We went to Oland for a few days and the ferry is within walking distance of the hotel. Very clean hotel, great food, and very friendly staff. We are hoping to be back again next year!

This was such a charming hotel; it felt like sleeping on an old ship. There were visible beams and slanted ceilings. Our room had a beautiful view of the harbor. The meals that were provided were excellent and the dining area was lovely. There was also a wonderful deck area to eat on with heaters for chilly nights. The room was small, but very clean and comfortable.

The hotel is very comfortable and quiet. Offers good quality of sleeping. You can have a dinner in price of the stay. Breakfast is also not bad. Central location by the sea/channel. Really good idea to stay there.

Located in a converted warehouse on the water, the Hotel Packhuset seems o cater primarily to a business audience. The rooms are comfortable, but some are odd: ours had a supporting trestle and beam smack in the middle of the room! Breakfast is included an is the typically generous (that is, huge) offering in Scandinavian hotels. Dinner was also included: good bread, soup, and salads, but mediocre main course (heavy, rich, and greasy). Dessert is a mere 55 SEK extra. Good wines by the glass and lots of beers. Exceptionally friendly wait staff.

I arrived after 9 pm, and the lobby was buzzing with guests taking advantage of the free light meal that is included in the price of the stay. I had asked for a room on a higher floor and when I walked into my room I realized in was on the main floor. I returned to the front desk to see if another room could be found and they very quickly made the change. The hotel rooms are small, but very quiet which was great for sleeping. Only thing is that the mattress is super soft so my back did not like that. The hotel is attached to a mall and is walking distance to the tourist information office (about 8 min walking) as well as the Kalmar castle and Gamlastan.

This hotel is in a perfect location right on the waters edge. The hotel was amazing and the staff very friendly. Always plenty of food available. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. Would defiantly stay again!

Great location right on the waterfront with a terrace overlooking the port, and some rooms share the same view. The rooms are small and so are the beds for 2 persons, but nicely furnished with a boat cabin style. Half board is required while the evening meal offers limited choice.

probably one of the few descent hotel in kalmar. had a room in the top floor, weird room and bathroom. dont have queen or king size beds only single bads attached together but still sleeping quality was good

We had a standard room on the 4th floor. High to ceiling. Bathtub. Room included all necessities. Good breakfast. Nice terrace with view over Kalmar sund. Close to city center and shopping mall Baronen.

We stayed here one night on our way to the ferry to Gotland. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the harbour but the bed and especially the duvet were a bit small. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very good.
