    Great hotel in the city center

    by

    Modern and nice hotel in the very center of the city. Stadshotellet has been remade pretty recently, and I was quite shocked to hear that my mom celebrated her graduation here with her parents about 40 years ago.
    Must have looked totally different at that time.

    After having some trouble finding my room (why have room 305 and 3305 on the third floor...?) I was happily surprised when I walked into 3305. It's a Deluxe room, but still bigger than I had expected. Very clean, soft and nice bed and a huge bathroom.

    There are actually study courses at the Växjö University about how to make the shower working, but apart from that one everything was easy to understand. Even the free wifi connection worked as a charm, something that isn't always the case in other hotels.

    Had a pretty big LCD tv in the room with Swedish channels as well as CNN and movie channels. The working desk was also in a good size, and it was nice to have to big chairs plus a table in the room too.

    Great service in the reception, with friendly staff. The kitchen closed at 22, and for me who that worked late that was a problem. The whole city center seemed to be dead at that time, and I was lucky to find a night open McDonalds 600 meters away.

    Breakfast was included in the price and was served until 10.30 in the morning. Had a nice and calm time there, eating pancakes and fruits. Perfect start of the day.

    There is a big parking lot at the square next to the hotel. I was lucky to be there on a holiday, as the parking was free. Otherwise I think it's about 10-15 euro/day, so not very cheap. Plenty of lots though, so shouldn't be a problem to park.

    Hotel guests who wants to go training can also do so, as it's free entrance at the gym close by as long as you're staying at the hotel. Unfortunately I had forgotten (hrm...) my training clothes back home, so I couldn't check it out.

    Unique Quality: Not sure if it's really a quality, but the hotel is writing on their home page that the famous Swedish singer Kristina Nilsson died at the hotel on the 22nd of November 1921.
    Must be very unique in any case, as I doubt she died somewhere else too...

    Directions: 100 meters away from the Central train station, very central located, at Storgatan. Just around the corner from the Glass museum and the Cathedral.

Travel Tips for Växjö

Get the Glass Pass, well worth the money

by Trekki

The glass pass is an investment which definitely pays off, no matter how long you will stay in the region (and visit shops). It costs only 95 SEK (2009) and allows you free entrance to any of the glass factories, a 10% discount on any purchase above 500 SEK, plus discounts at many other shops, museums, accommodation, restaurants, activities (like blowing glass on your own) and for the famous hyttsill, which is a tradional evening meal with herring (sill = herring) in the factory. Have a look at Kingdom of Crystal’s website where you can download the offers as pdf. Take into account that the famous glass manufacturers will charge for a visit in their factories: Kosta, Boda, Åfors and Orrefors charge 30 SEK and Nybro charges 40 SEK without the pass. I was very grateful for the existence of this pass because it saved me approx. 1000 SEK, but then I was in the region for 3 days and drove all the way from home and back with a car to be able and buy loads to bring home (I would never have done this otherwise but would have flown and rented a car in Sweden only).
It might be a different story if you are coming as family with kids. Maybe. Just do some maths and you will know if the pass is a good idea for you. And consider that you will buy more than you originally planned to do, no matter if you come by car or by plane or train and have the goods shipped to your home. It is a law of nature, haha.

The Kingdom of Crystal’s website is a wealth of information. Here you can also download the 42 page (10 MB) brochure about the activities, the individual glass factories, the places to stay and eat and a map with the locations. This brochure is available in Swedish, German and English as download and in several other languages to order online. The website itself comes in ten different languages: Swedish, Finnish, English, German, French, Italian, Russian, Polish, Dutch and Japanese. Currency converter.

Växjö half marathon

by Sjalen

Every 1 May there is the Växjöloppet which not only has a half marathon distance but also a 10 or 4,5 kilometre course for you and which attracts people from all over Sweden, There are also a couple of courses for children in the Lilla Växjöloppet, and if you think you recognise the functionnare in the picture, it is not Olympic pentathlon winner Carolina Klüft but indeed her sister - they both belong to the organising club even if Carolina herself has left town these days.

Teleborg Castle

by Sjalen

A much more modern castle than its looks suggests and built as a romantic home rather than something historic. I had the privilige of seeing it every day when I studied in Växjö as it is next to the university just outside the city.
