Recent guest reviews
Excellent service and the food surpriseed us in taste and quality in the most positive way. Close to museums and Munktell badet (swimming arena). The historical setting and atmosphere was great and appropriated buy the adults and children.
The hotel itself is very nice. It is were there was the Volvo factory once so the history inside is quite cool. Breakfast is amazing...a lot of selection and a great tasty fruits. The location is super romantic but the rooms are very old, with few facilities and quite ugly.
Welcoming and charming hotel with comforts of home in perfectly renovated Volvo factory. The staff, entry, food, gardens, pillows, down comforter, bathrooms -- everything was perfect down to the lovely detail of inspiring sayings placed on objects in unexpected places. Thinking of any reason to return to this beautiful city and lovely hotel.
Nice rooms and nice views. Close to a local brewery. Very warm rooms when the sun is shining but otherwise nothing to complain about. Dinner and breakfast is included in the room, both very good. I stay here everytime I need to be close to Eskilstuna.
This hotel is in an interesting old factory building, beautifully situated on the lake. It is within walking distance of Eskilstuna. Some aspects of the hotel disappointed us, however. Every time we wanted a cup of tea in the room, we had to ask for cups, T bags and milk. No tissues, shower cap or cotton wool pads were supplied. Also, our room had no climate control. Only a small ineffective fan was supplied to combat the heat. The evening meal was very ordinary; we would not recommend it. The breakfast is good. The staff are friendly and helpful. However, it is clear that many problems stem from the hotel being under-staffed. Finally, we were charged a higher price for the same room, after a night away. We felt it was blatant opportunism. They called it 'dynamic pricing', claiming it is customary in Sweden.
Most notable problem with the visit was the service. It didn't exist. There was clearly too little staff at the evening shift in full hotel. Evening meal that was included into the price was quite poor (chewy meat with a lot of fat) but the breakfast was good.
I visited this hotel for a business event, end of July / beginning of August. Generally very clean and well maintained facility with nice patio. Various restaurants and the city center are within walking distance. The rooms (at least my one) has seen better times, but for a week absolutely ok and clean. Unfortunately no air conditioning. I expected a bit more when I arrived and entered the nice lobby, as it looks like a higher standard from outside and on their website. Very good breakfast and evening buffet for hotel guests included. In my opinion an absolute plus and very good service. Good value for the money. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel.
Very sorry for the late review. A group of us stayed here with work for a nearby training course. we arrived late in the evening the lady had left us some lovely soup and bread rolls, plus some beer which was much appreciated after a long day traveling. The rooms and food were all very nice as was the staff. Lovely view from the front and side of the river before it goes over the weir. we had an awards - debrief evening in the museum next door and again the food and drink was excellent. Lovely place to stay and cant wait to return. Well done to the whole team :)
My colleagues and I (we were 8 all together) just spent a fantastic week at this hotel. The building itself has a fascinating history in that Bolinder-Munktell used to be a marine engine and tractor manufacturer until it later merged with Volvo. Consequently, there are many historical objects and photos around the hotel to explain its rich heritage. Upon check-in, I was impressed with the friendly staff that not only got me into my room quickly, but provided a nice written guide of all of the services offered at the hotel. Other reviewers have pointed out that the hotel not only provides breakfast in its price, but also dinner. This came as a complete surprise and though my co-workers and I were initially unsure how good the quality would be, after the first night, we decided to forgo eating any place else. The rooms themselves are fine, I personally wish the bed had been a little bigger, but otherwise they are well-cleaned and the bathrooms stocked with the necessary toiletries. The wifi is free and strong enough to watch movies on Netflix. There is a small gym as well as sauna for the guests, though I preferred to enjoy the beautiful outdoors each morning for my exercise. The hotel's location is perfect in that you can be in the heart of the city in just five minutes and you have the beautiful Eskilstuna River right outside your window. Please note that as hotels go, this establishment normally wouldn't qualify for five stars, but the overall experience is so delightful that you can't help but fall in love with this place. If you find yourself in Eskilstuna for any reason, this is the hotel to book. It really is that good.
