Gotlandssemester: Visby apartments
They have several great apartments, all remodeled (although all buildings inside the wall are hundreds of years old and really beautiful) "inside the wall", which is the only location you want to stay in.
Clean, nice views, cheap

B&B Fårö: too much calm
We went there in August 2006 but my memory is still very alive about it. First of all, the booking was a real adventure. They sent home a contract. I wonder you mainataine the web-site (if you can call it web-site). We arrived at 8 pm on the day in which their restaurant closes. Nobody answered the bell so we had to call them by phone.
The double room is really very very small, you don't have space for luggage and wardrobe is too small as well. The shared bathroom was ok. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. People were friendly but the English was too poor to get in touch better. Moreover, they did not accept payment with a Visa credit card issued by a foreign bank. But the main issue was that, to get to Gotland mainland, you have to take a ferry. there is one every 30 minutes and sometimes there is a long waiting. Besides this, it's really far from Visby. If you want to visit Gotland, the best accomodation location is Visby.

Volontärgatan: Own apartment
We were staying for almost a full week in Visby, using it as our travel base, and then hotel bills were not an attractive thought so instead we rented an apartment via the Destination Gotland website when booking the ferry. The apartments are run by the company Gotlandsresor which also has other accommodation in the Visby area, so checking in is done at the Hamnhotellet hotel reception not far from the harbour before you can make your way to Volontärgatan. This is the only inconvenience though, and a small one since you will probably arrive and depart by ferry anyway. Checking in is after 15.00 and checking out before 12.00 as with most hotels. Towels and bedlinen is included in the rent as is final cleening but apart from that, you wash-up and so on as you would at home of course.
The apartments are student apartments for the rest of the year which means that you get one room with a kitchenette. This has a cooker, fridge, freezer, coffee perculator or kettle and basic washing-up things. There are also a couple of (small-ish) pots and pans and crockery for 3-4 persons depending on apartment. Some apartments can be joined if you are a big family. There is of course also a table area as well as comfy, if somewhat narrow, beds and a TV with quite a few international channels too. The bathrooms have showers. Volontärgatan is in a quiet area east of the city centre with a 10-15 minute walk to the Österport city gate along residential quarters by the Roma road. We were afraid it would feel like a long walk but we often biked home and even when we walked it was only a few blocks. There are also terraces or balkonies with each apartment so you can buy a cheap grill if the evening is nice. Along the street is a free parking lot. I think the only complaint I have is that you had to do your shopping in the city and for us without a car it meant carry it home as there was no supermarket in the immediate area, but this was a minor inconvenience and the Konsum supermarket at Östervägen is open until 21.00 all days.
We hardly used our terrace as we were out all day, but it looked nice the way our neighbours had a barbecue when we returned. Bicycle racks outside the window meant we always knew where our rental bikes were.

Prästgården i När: Bed & breakfast at the vicarage in När
The building is from the 1761 and the owner will tell you everything about it. My stay here started with a guided tour around the house that lasted at least half an hour: I was shown all the rooms and I don't know if she would have shown the other guest's room too if there were any at the time, plus the bakery, the attic, the brewery, the park, the old privies, etc etc
The room I stayed in was just perfect, especially compared with the tent I'd spent the two previous nights in.
They will make you feel at home at this place.
