It is not too often I stay at several hotels on the same trip (unless you travel by car, which is another story). Some reflections.
Kokkola Bed & Breakfast, Åbo (meaning of course that I stayed with a friend). Excellent personal service. Airport transfer, as well as transportation to and from events. Shower in the basement – bring dressing gown next time. Elegant breakfast and nice evening meals. Free drinks. Broadband internet. Relaxing atmosphere and stimulating conversations.
Hotel du Nord, Linköping. Nice little hotel in the centre of the city and close to the railway station. Personal service, lots of attention. A very small room (a misunderstanding). No lift. Good breakfast, horrible coffee. No other meals. Broadband internet.
Elite Stadshotellet, Växjö. Large posh hotel with spacious lobby, huge restaurant and an English-style pub. No individual touch. Good food (both individual and conference dinner). Horrible coffee. Tempting minibar. Complimentary wireless internet that works most of the time.
Conclusion: Don't ever agree to do several things on the same trip.
