In the summer of 2017 I traveled with Inlandsbanan all the way to Swedish Lapland. Slow travel, you might say. The first day the train from Inlandsbanan took me to Östersund (Jämtland), to leave early the next morning for Gällivare. On the way back I spent a night in Östersund. I chose Hotel Emma.
Hotel Emma is within walking distance of the station (Västra) and proved to be a popular stop for Inlandsbanan travellers. The hotel is located in the shopping street of Östersund. Unfortunately the shops were already closed when the train arrived. Several restaurants and bars can be found in the immediate vicinity. There is also a supermarket nearby.
The extraordinary breakfast at Hotel Emma
Hotel Emma does not have a typical hotel entrance. It takes a while to find the bell. There are also other companies in the same building. The room was comfortable and rather traditional. You have everything you need but you will not be blown away by the rooms. Cozy living rooms can also be found between the rooms where you can read a book in peace.
What blew me away was the friendly welcome and especially the extensive breakfast. On the buffet I mainly discovered homemade and local products. It gave me a warm B&B feeling. Moreover, you could bake your own waffles! There were different types of juices, different types of homemade jam, various pastries to choose from and lots of fresh products. In short: just for breakfast alone, I’d like to go to Hotel Emma back!
