    Really enjoyed our stay.

    Fabulous breakfast! Room so quiet even as a concert took place just outside.

    Centrally located hotel whose owners show an excellent attention to detail. While our room lacked AC (they claim to be working on it), ear plugs were provided so the windows could be kept open over night. We enjoyed the very nicely presented breakfast which had a wide variety of choices. We can easily recommend this hotel.

    Cool mix of old and new

    The hotel was very funky - the building is very very old, but the furnishings were very modern and cool. The breakfast was delicious, and the location was perfect - 5 minutes walking from the train station and right in the central square. Service was also wonderful. My only complaint was that the shower was TINY, and since the building is so old, they use physical keys, so if you have more than one person in your group, you have to all share one key. Otherwise, it was a great experience!

    This is a lovely old building, right on the square of the old town. Our room was spacious and clean. Anyone looking for a `modern` room should steer clear though -we were given big, heavy metal keys including one for the front door which is locked by 10. The full breakfast had all the cheese, meat, eggs, vegetables and fruit one could ask for!

    An Ageing Dowager of a Hotel doing her best .

    This is an older hotel, in an old section of town, which offers rooms moderately priced. As such it is a bit better than the average old grand dame, but not a luxury hotel by any stretch. It's basic, but on the good side of basic. The rooms are not air conditioned, which was an issue when I stayed, because opening the windows in summer means flies in the room. I found the bed a bit saggy, so not that comfortable. (I also found a spider in it one morningupon awaking, but he didn't bite me.) Other than that it was clean, and fairly spacious. The location was terrific and the staff was very helpful! The breakfast was pretty good too. The restaurant downstairs if extremely popular on a summer saturday night, so get a reservation!

    Highly Recommended

    We had a great stay! The room was very large and decorated in period decor, but very comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. The location is right next to the train station and on a main historic square in Kalmar — perfect spot. Walking distance to all the attractions in Kalmar and the beautiful waterfront. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Kalmar.

    Excellent location in this attractive 17th century city, near station, historic sites and amenities. The hotel restaurant is popular locally and to be recommended. Staff very obliging. Its decor is traditional and comfortable. I for one was delighted to be issued with a real key, not a card!

    We have stayed there many times and so has other family members. I have stayed at many hotels in many countries and few match the Frimurarehotellet. Now other the renovations adds to a already great hotel. The daily lunch deal (SEK 110) is a unbelievable deal. Anybody going to Kalmar (a great little city) this hotel is a must to add to your visit.
