We stayed two nights at the historic Klosterhotel on shores of Lake Vattern. Great room except poor TV reception ,then so many things to do .Old castle just within walking distance .Breakfast in the old Hall was an experience in it`s self. Nice small town for a relaxing time by the beautiful Lake We visited in September 201

We badly needed a weekend off far from hectic city and found this place. My husband arranged SPA sessions for us at a building close by as well. We arrived a friday afternoon and enjoyed a very tasty dinner in this historic environment. Had a room with view over the lake with comfy beds and slept like a baby. SPA...

Vadstena Klosterhotel has a magnificent setting along Lake Vattern. Don't expect the 5 or even 4 star room though, after all the place is a former monastery dating in part from the 1300s. Allow yourself to be absorbed in the antique settings while all the time taking in the history of the building in which you are staying. You will...

Vadstena Klosterhotel is richly blessed in many ways, set as it is in several historic buildings in the venerable and picturesque old town of Vadstena, with lake Vättern as a particularly scenic backdrop. Regrettably, this appears to have left those running the property rather complacent, not trying as hard as they could to live up to guests’ expectations, nor to...

The lower-priced rooms are not worth the charge, in high season at least. These rooms are not in the abbey building and are quite run-down. We felt it was overpriced by $75-100, and unlike some reviewers, we did not find Sweden expensive on the whole. We were also disappointed with customer service. Couldn't get reception to answer the phone (more...

Good: Hotel expensive for British, but Vadstena was a great place to stay two days. The hotel fronted the beautiful lake, with the cheaper ( still not cheap!) rooms in the annex in a large house 7 mins walk away but next to the castle ( and lake), providing breakfast so no need to walk to main hotel, and surrounded...

We stayed in the Annex which is 250 m from the main hotel but closer to the town center. The room was small but comfortable with period furniture. overlooked a park which was quiet, and seats outside for guests to sit. There is free wifi but the access code chages every day so you need to contact reception for a...

If you are traveling to Vadstena (and you absolutely should), the Klosterhotel is really the place to stay. It is set in an old medieval cloister building and oozes historic charm. The hotel's location is fantastic: Lake Vattern and its beautiful sunsets are just outside the front door and the famous abbey is just adjacent to the hotel. You can...

Beautiful historic hotel/abbey/nunnery. The rooms weren't that nunlike. Food was amazing. And it's such a great setting right on the lake, next to the old castle. Loved the story of St. Bridget and really liked hearing all the history.

The area of Vadstena is very nice. You really feel that this is an old town in the best sentences. The hotel is great, especially if you like history. Most of the rooms are very big and nice decorated. The breakfast hall is one of a kind. Best of all, it's right beside the old monestary. Highly recommended.
