Recent guest reviews

Stayed 10 nights and very impressed with everyone I was in contact with. Everyone spoke English!! The room was clean and comfortable. There was always someone at the front desk to assist in any way needed. Had trouble figuring out how the shower worked but once I mentioned it to the front desk he came up and showed me. Breakfast and dinner were included in the price of the room. Great not having to go out into the cold for breakfast! Everyone was very kind. Would definitely stay in this hotel if I go back to Vaxjo!

We visited this hotel few days back. The deluxe rooms are large and nice. Staff members are nice , specially Sanna. Extremely sweet and helpful . The only bad experience we had was with the laundry company the hotel uses. We were told that they only dry clean , no laundry . We gave a few underclothes and a couple of night suits . Were charged for SUITS . Paid more than 200 euros , inspite of explaining the hotel people . Such tie ups of good hotels with unscrupulous vendors , tend to get them a bad name .

Stayed here for a week in November. Lived alone in a room that felt spacious and clean, very good shelf in the bathroom to put your articles on, kettle with coffee and tea, TV, free wifi. The room was in a side building, check-in and dining room in the main building. So you have to go outside to get to breakfast and dinner, but it took only a minute to go. The breakfast buffet was good, the evening meal, or rather, the dinner was also good and included in the room rate. Very nice and accommodating staff. Coffee with something sweet is available around the clock in the foyer. The hotel is very centrally located within walking distance to everything necessary.

Deep sleep in a very comfy bed. Cool view from the hotel room. The room itself was abit worn - something missing, needs some form av elevation in decor or such, boring interiour. The dinner is a big plus! very good mushroomsoup friday evening. Friendly staff.

Nice hotel with very good service. The location, in the middle of the town is great. A little bit small dining room, but it´s possible to sit a floor down. If you go by car, they offer a garage spot around the corner, for approx. 150 SEK.

I stayed 4 nights on a work trip last month. Was pleasantly surprised to learn that the room rate includes both breakfast and dinner. Food is of good quality. Hotel staff are friendly and professional. On the first evening i informed them that my room ceiling light wasn't working. They made a note of it, i said it was OK to wait until the following day, and they did sort it out for me while i was out at work. I was in room 340 in the next building - the hotel occupies 3 areas in two different buildings. My room was clean and basic. Decor is quite different from the main reception and lobby bar which are modern and cosy. Had some trouble retracting the window blind on one window so after the staff sorted it out, i just didn't touch it for the rest of my stay. Weird thing is the design of the shower stall. It has two glass doors but with a gap between them, so when you shower the floor outside the shower area will get wet too. Overall: it is clean, efficient and conveniently located.

Got a very small room at the hotel. We stayed from saturday until sunday and saturday evening/night was very noisy outside our window so we had a bad sleep. The room was very simple but the breakfast buffe was ok. Not one of the better hotels.

This hotel is for certain centrally located in the heart of Vaxjo. The hotel itself is located in a couple buildings that are adjacent to each other. It offered very decent dinners and breakfasts that were included in the price. The dinner in particular was a surprise for me with it being included in the price and being very decent meal. The room we had was across the street from the main check in. Our room was a very very large suite that had a kitchenette included in it. I have to say it was a very spacious and comfortable room again better than expected. The only downside we had to the whole place was trying to find parking around the hotel but it is all very expensive. The hotel itself does have underground parking but it too is located in another street and underground. Locating the parking was our only small problem with this hotel other than that it is a very good stay!!

Having stayed for a week at the Cardinal I could not be more satisfied. An excellent stay in every way. Check- in and -out without fuss, lovely staff who learn your name, tasty breakfast and dinner buffets with healthy options, a well- equipped gym and sauna, comfortable room and bed. All at a very reasonable price in the absolute city centre. Tack så mycket!

Room was nice and clean with comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Wifi comes with individual password and works very well. We appreciated the afternoon baked goods and the included buffet dinner. Breakfast was extensive. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only slight downside was some noise from people on the street outside on Saturday evening, to be expected in the city center. A very short walk to Central Station.
