Hotel Skansen, Farjestaden
The room was very Spartan, and not comfortable. The breakfast was nice, and the service fine.

Swedish efficient charm
This is a charming Swedish hotel with multiple amenities. We had a lovely dinner (Arctic Char, Body cakes and pasta) at the hotel restaurant. There is an indoor pool of pretty good size, with adjacent hotub, nice since the weather was rainy outside. Rooms modern and clean. Great location not far from the mainland bridge, so easy to go north or south on Oland.

Night help
Our 2 day stay was great for our 3 generation family. The night staff was extremely helpful to our granddaughter who injured her toe. All staff were informed and pleasant. One suggestion is to heat the pool. A USA family of Swedish heritage.
