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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

The hotel was once a theatre so had an old world atmosphere. The dinner was by candlelight in the theatre but the service was extremely slow. Breakfast next morning, in a lounge area, was also by candlelight which was not appropriate at 6.30 a.m. There was no fridge in the room. The curtains did not fit close to the windows...

We were taking our yearly family trip to Sweden with our two 20-something children and their friends (a total of six of us which included four 20-somethings). We stayed in Stockholm for six nights then started heading up north via car. We stayed overnight in Ostersund because there is a Boda Borg in town and we wanted to take our...
