Best Western Hotel Gamla Teatern

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed as part of a group. First room was on ground floor and very warm and we were glad to change for an upstairs room where we could open the window straight onto the street! Rooms are very small with no space for luggage. Water was hot but flew everywhere and you have to put your arm under the water to adjust temp (and it was cold). Bathroom was swimming after my husband has his shower! Soap in dispenser ran out, milk for coffee was sour. Felt totally hemmed in. Let's hope brekky is better!

Hotel has free parking and a parking garage. Friendly personnel at the desk and we got a room on the 3rd floor. The hallways and rooms have the same kund of atmosphere. The ventilation was a bit loud, but everything else was okay in our room. The breakfast was included but rather limited.

This is a ok hotel for 1 night because of the breakfast. It is my opinion the hotel needs a thorough renovation. Rooms are old fashioned and shabby. The cleaning – clean bathroom and no dust under the bed - was ok but some items cannot be cleaner because of their age. Do not use the hair dryer for example. I had a single room on the 4th floor. The shower had no door at the front side which causes water all over the place. The car park is behind the hotel, the reception did not tell me about a back entrance, if there is one. The parking is free of charge which I great. The hotel is situated in the center of the town which allows you to see something of the city if you want to. It is 15 minutes from the airport. Next time I choose another place because of the high price in relation to the quality.

Central hotel with a somewhat overvelming interior decoration. A lot of velvet! In tune with the building being the old theater of course. A bit old but clean. Nice people in the reception! Breakfast perfectly ok.

I always stay at this hotel when I go home to visit my relatives. It is not overly expensive and it has a special charm which I find attractive. The location is perfect. One thing to remember when booking: Do not reserve a room in the basement unless you don't like windows.

If you want to save the town theatre from being demolished and replaced by an office block this is how to do it. The Old Tiown Theatre has been converted into a Hotel by using theb rooms that were originally used by the travelling theatre companies when visiting the theatre. At the heart of the hotel the theatre remains and is still used for theatrical and cabaret performances. Breakfast is taken in what was/is the crush bar to the theatre BY is an amazing experience and the breakfast is very good as well! If we had a complaint our room was over furnished with period furnishings but it was still very comfortable.

The hotel hosted two events during the weekend we stayed there. Arriving to a rock consent with drunken visitors spilling their drinks and smoking indoors is not impressive. The breakfast lacked of freshness. In addition there was no gluten free or lactose free options. The manager explained that he has prioritised the two events before allergies. I was chocked over how inconsiderate and sexist he was. I will never return there rather pay double the price somewhere else than go back to that hotel and that kind of mindset!

This is a nice hotel located in an old theatre The service is good and the breakfast is nice. It is i the heart of the city centre of Östersund. I could recomend this for both business and pleasure. In the basement there is a really nice spa.

Pleasant hotel in old cultural building, mainly the old Theatre. The original interior is enhanced in a time typical manner. At first I was offered a boring room without a window, in the basement, but it was no problem to change to a nicer room. Fairly small room. Deficit of space put things on: The small desk was covered with hotel stuff. Comfortable bed but no soft pillows. Quiet. Breakfast buffé with hot and cold dishes, was OK. Breakfast understaffed, hard to find a person when coffe needed to be refilled. Unpleasant front desk officer at check out was a drawback.

I booked the Gamla Teatern a few hours before arriving in Ostersund, and suspect I got the last room in town, given that it was their annual music festival. The building is old, stuffy and tired, and had an all-permeating smell of fish for the duration of our stay. The room was small, quite stuffy, and had a mixed bag of furniture of various ages. However, the welcome was friendly, the staff keen to please, and the room was spotlessly clean. If the price of the room was a bit more like a UK hotel then I'd give it a fourth star, but something about Swedish hotel prices grates a little (I ended up paying nearly £200 for the night). And at a lower price I would stay again.
