Solhem is a rather basic hotel, don't expect a luxury vacation, but with some great advantages. First of all, the location is great! It's located right beside the city wall and it's very easy to reach many of the sights in the city from here.
Secondly, they have a very good breakfast with everything you can possibly want (you will have to be picky to find fault with it at least).
Upon arrival, the staff was efficient and professional, but a few more smiles wouldn't have hurt. The room we got was spacious, clean and with a very good bathroom. However, be prepared that the water in the shower has a low pressure because of the frequent water shortage on the island.
The beds were excellent, but the pillows could been approved on because they are a bit too thin and flimsy. However, this is something that you can encounter in 4-star hotels also. Our room was equipped with a water kettle, free tee and coffee (with is also served in the reception),a stove with two cookers and a micro-wave oven. However, we didn't use any of these kitchen appliances so I cannot say anything more about them.
The only (minor) minus point is that I would consider the decor a bit outdated and tired. It works, but could do with a renewal.
All in all, I would consider Solhem to be a very solid choice when going to Visby, It has all you would expect for a hotel at a decent price (for Visby at least which during summer season can be very expensive) less
