“Centrally located hotel”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

Travelled to Stockholm for work, and this hotel was very conveniently located to the main train terminal.
Best advice I can give you is book a double room - their single rooms overloo the central atrium and are not much bigger than a bathroom.
Moved to a larger room with a bigger bed and it was perfectly adequate.
No bath - just shower, but lovely big shower. Toiletries provided. Pet hate - facecloth provided first day and then had to request each day after that - I mean, if you're not supplying it, don't have it there on the first day!
Work desk was rather low to the ground - and I'm only 5-7 - can't imagine anybody taller managing to get their knees under it.
Breakfast was great value and available later at the weekends.
Eating in the bar or room service was expensive for what you got - could definitely eat better elsewhere.
They have a sky-bar on the top floor - didn't manage to experience it as it was very busy most nights - some rather dodgy looking characters in there, but that could have been just my suspicious nature.
Sauna, Jacuzzi & gym in the basement - given the hotel's central location, they have squeezed a lot in here - the pool is not for anybody interested in doing a serious swim.
Staff were excellent - so helpful and informative - and they even kindly gave me an umbrella as it rained the entire time I was there.

Room Tip: Don't book a single room - they're tiny!

We [couple] stayed here for 4 days - attending a meeting. I don't know if other rooms were like ours - crummy, cramped, dark, dingy, musty smell, worn-out look of furniture and beddings, forget about lack of day light in the room - even turning on the lamps in the day time was not enough to read or locate objects in the room properly - bitterly disappointed and let down - certainly nowhere near money's worth. Breakfast was good - nothing 'royal' or exceptional. Ambience in the lobby and public places in the Hotel cheerless - at best OK. Staff efficient and OK. Certainly Room No 580 is not the room to be in there. What if any, was good about it ? Sure - the location - close to most of the tourist hot-spots / transport facilities like train [Central station] bus etc. was ideal.

Room Tip: Try for a room not facing interior courtyard -

Enjoyed our stay. Very nice breakfast. The junior suites are really spacious and there was plenty of space for our two children. However, the wifi didn't work properly in our room, which was a shame. The sauna and pool were also a great thing when staying with kids.

The registration process was painfully slow, with queues. The reception wasn't sure whether "the superior bedroom" was ready at 4 pm. Your car is "valeted" which means they take the key and garage it somewhere for 39 Swedish kroner a night! You're told you have to give them half an hour's notice if you want your car or wish to retrieve something from it. The atmosphere nearby is as unsavoury as Kings Cross in London can be, so much so that the hotel closes the side entrance near the central station in the afternoon/early evening even though it is not far from the Ahlens store (equivalent of John Lewis in Oxford Street). The hotel itself is massive but strange with a huge and menacingly dark foyer where it is impossible to see or read anything and a "Sky Bar" which claims a view over Stockholm which is singularly unimpressive and which charges 141 Kroner for a glass of red wine with 40 cl of beer. The breakfast (extra at 112 Sw. Kroner per person) is OK but it is too crowded and disorganised. The bedroom and shower room were of a good standard but the air conditioning was very noisy and no windows could be opened because of the atrium (?). The wifi was slow and erratic despite the fact that we were on the business floor.

Located within walking distance to Gamla Stan(old town) and close to public transportation, this is an ideal location in Stockholm. Hotel is modern, rooms small but nicely appointed, staff friendly and efficient. Cafeteria style breakfast area with mediocre food is a definite negative but there is a nice coffee shop immediately adjacent to the hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the water
