Elite Stadshotellet Växjö4.0 out of 5.0

I loved the bi-level and no curtain room. The bathroom was higher than my bedroom. Ceiling windows which could be a problem during summer when days are longer were a nice touch to me. They gave enough light during the day. Breakfast was more than adequate. There were several free rental bikes available - they were very helpful for me in taking care of the last minute urgent issue. Wished the gym was on premises. Whilst the gym that we can use is 2.5 blocks away, in rain and cold, it could feel a wee bit farther away. Once inside, they gym facility is equipped with a good selection of machines. I even ate at the adjustment pub which apparently owned by the Elite Hotel. The same wifi works there. Good food and beer.
Stayed in this hotel for 3 days during an official trip to Växjö. Excellent location of the hotel. The picturesque city centre is in a walking distance. Liked their restaurant and the options very much. Liked their options in continental cuisines a lot. I'm not a big fan of indian food when travelling abroad. Prefer the local cuisines as it mirrors the local culture. Dinner was bit pricey but liked it a lot. Expected some Swedish cuisine in the menu.
The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the train station. It has wide corridors, nice rooms and an historic feel. The stately white door to the room is heavy that I needed two arms to open it. Restaurants are within a few minutes. Bikes are available for guest use.
I am sure that my experience would have been different if I had been assigned an updated room, but I wasnt and thus am reviewing based on the room I had. After checking in I was in room 117 and my colleague in 116. We set off to find our rooms. After passing by his spacious, updated room I could not find 117. I went to the end of the hall where there was construction and didn't realize I had to pass into the construction zone. The carpet is partially torn up, the rooms that are under renovation in the hall Sprite to mine have doors open with extension cords and plastic everywhere. You can understand my confusion. I went down the hall a bit and found my room. Opened it to find the smallest room I think I have ever had, in all my travels throughout the world I do believe this was the smallest room. The dead bolt didn't work and would keep sticking. The view out the window was of a rusty scrap heap or something in the middle of the hotel. The bed was a tiny single in a tiny room. The lamp above the bed had the switch broken and dangling from the scorched socket. Just old, tired, small. But what really stuck in my craw was that I paid 30% more than my colleagues for the room and got 1/10 the room... Actually a room that should not be rented... Perhaps next time just say you are full and have no rooms available. I do realize that my colleagues booked earlier than I did, and blah, blah, blah. Suffice it to say this was a bad room, a disgrace really and I won't be back. The breakfast saved a star.
First leg of a long stay in sweden. Perfect for families. An old church , museum , a beautiful lake, street music with good options for shopping, restaurants, and play areas in the surrounding vicinity.
The staff on the front desk was very good and helpfull. And the breakfast was also good, but I miss small plates to go with the eggs. But the cleaning was very bad, we found dust mostly everyvere. And soap residuises in the bathroom.
Excellent location - 5 min from railway station, bus station and citycenter. Good breakfast (eggs, sausage, cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, traditional herring, lots of fruits, yogurt, tea, coffee, juices, cookies). There are teapot, tea, coffee, sugar in the room. At the reception - coffee, tea, fruit, biscuits.
We were a couple and a large teenager in a room for a week but the room did well, it had a lovely big bathroom, and our son had a good sofa bed. We loved the tv in the middle of the room so he could swing it round for him or we could have it our end. It had a fridge which was great for a longer stay and a coffee machine too. A hairdryer was useful. No robes. The staff were helpful and polite. Breakfast was very nice indeed. Parking was always available but its worth mentioning you can get a day pass from reception but if you only need a few hours you need to use the machine and it only takes coins and not a UK credit card. This was proving a problem until we asked reception to change some money for us and then it was easy to do. Its worth saying its free over night so if you put in money before you go to bed it starts at 9am so you dont have to get up early to do it. You can walk everywhere from here, the station, the lake, swimming pool and shops etc. We also went to Kosta Boda which was half an hour away and well worth the visit if you like glass and it was much much cheaper than the UK. They are refurbishing some rooms and we had a new one which was nice. Thank you for a good weeks stay.
Very conveniently located Hotel on main square of this lovely city. Very clean and comfortable room of decent size for two. Front desk staff was endlessly helpful as we made our way to various soccer events. Breakfast was very good, though I missed having hot oatmeal that we enjoyed in Stockholm...... Hotel was very busy with various weekend events, but they were obviously used to this situation. Cleaning folks were very kind and efficient also. Evening dinner at restaurant - (hamburgers )- was very good and service was fine.
I stayed here recently for a few days while attending a workshop at the university. The location couldn't be better - right next to the station and a bus to the university, plus a supermarket and many restaurants. The morning breakfast was amazing with many choices. The room was spacious and clean. My only complaint was the check-in process. I was originally given a room that was already occupied and it was a rather awkward to walk in on someone who didn't speak my language. The lock on my door also didn't seem to work (it just spun around in circles), so I always felt a little uneasy that someone might also walk in on me!
