We booked a couple of rooms in the Best Western here for a hot July night. The hotel is well located next to the city centre and, for a small fee (currently 60 SEK), it offers a local car parking space for the first few takers. We agreed and got city centre parking until mid-afternoon the day after we checked in. It allowed us to explore central Vasteras on foot the next morning.
July must be a time when visitors go out of town. Those who were there were Swedish and German: older couples and young families. The whole place had a faintly eccesiastical air: courteous and friendly staff, quiet corridors (with floors smelling faintly of wood polish), subdued colours, stone stairs. Not a showey hotel, but I liked it. The bed, shower and breakfast were all fine and so was the wifi. What the hotel lacks, however, is air conditioning. Usually I have issues with air condition (sealed rooms, very dry etc). Here I found the opposite: hot rooms where one could open the windows a bit. Our double room had a desk fan to help alleviate the effects of the heat.
We paid £49 for single and £61 for a double from a hotel comparison app and think we got a great deal for the money. There are one or two flashier hotels in town, but the Best Western functions as a high level three star and I'd very much recommend it. less
