    Unusual hotel

    It was quite unusual to stay in a 'Patient Hotel' next to a hospital, but we could have no complaints about the quality or cleanliness. We should have this in the UK!

    University near

    The hotel is next to the hospital and it seems that many of the people staying here are relatives to patients or are out- patients themselves. No frills, but practical and clean. The town center is a short walk away as is the main university campus.

    The hotel is pretty basic. Breakfast was not great. Walking distance to the university and the hospital. Around 15 minutes walk to downtown. Very accessible by buses. Bed was comfortable. Staff are friendly.

    Clean rooms with plenty of space. No room service. No alcohol served after 8 pm. Strange humming noise. Hotel is far away from city centre.

    Lugnt och tyst. Men väldigt torftig frukost! Kanske för Corona just nu?
