It is difficult to describe this hotel - bohemian chic? Arty? The ultimate boutique hotel? It was clean, comfortable, classy, interesting and the breakfast, a feast. The staff at the front desk always gave us a sincere smiling welcome when passing through the lobby. Their smiles lit up our day. It was better than expected and we can’t wait to go back.

I was so sad that my flight got delayed and could therefore only spend two nights instead of three. Lovely room, exquisite food and first class service. The most comfortable beds. Amazing breakfast. Can't wait to return.

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The Service especially from Sean, the concierge, was top notch, and very friendly. The bed was just the right firmness, and the pillow and duvet fabouless. The shower was great, and I can continue with the breakfast, cocktails etc. Not a finger to put on anything. We will definitely be back next time we are in Stockholm
