Stockholm, Sweden
Reviewed 4 September 2016

The location near the train station is really good. But when you get inside you realize that this is just a hostel. With all the old and weary furniture, with dark shared bathrooms and toilets, with poor breakfast. I would really expect something better for such a price.

The hotel has a great location, across the street from the railway station. The rooms are nicely furnished with old furniture, for instance, an old bureau, and an old desk. The hotel guests share toilets and shower stalls, located adjacent to the rooms. Some toilets showed signs of use in the morning. Aside from this cleaning was good - and...

Very beautiful boutique hotel in the centre, opposite the station and next to a cathedral. From the hotel you can take a stroll along the canal through the town centre (walking route at the reception). Good instructions before arrival. Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. Nice lounge with complementary tea and coffee and cookies. Toy trains to borrow, which delighted my...

This hotel was a very positive experience. Not a luxury hotel but, very nice in line with my requirements. Friendly personnel, good breakfast and it was clean. Easy opposite the railway station, easy for further travelling if you are dependent of public transport.

Terribly bad, I stayed here at first while visiting my boyfriend's family and friends. Ended up leaving early to stay elsewhere. Hotel bathroom and showers are shared and I also caught a skin illness; ringworm in the shared shower block would not recommend this hotel. After it I had to see the doctors! Definately needs upgrading and the elevator is...

A very charming hotel in the centre of town, our room had a shared bathroom which of course always is a nuisance. We came quite late in the evening and left early in the morning but the staff arranged so that a key to our room was waiting for us. Great breakfast!

We take 1 night, small room but overall good for budget traveller with all facility you need, near train station, near shopping place, sharing toilet was clean and comfortable. But the room and hotel a little bit spooky because of old building :)
