We stayed here for two nights during a wedding. Location was not ideal, as the actual church and reception venue was situated a good 30 minutes drive from the hotel, and we arrived during the midsummers night w'end, meaning all or most shops were closed.
Hotel check inn was easy - Staff were polite and helpful with any questions we had regarding taxi info and even lent me some sticky tape that i needed for the wedding speech!
Hotel lobby was very posh even though the outside of the hotel doesn't look it. Nice seating areas around reception, lovely lighting at main staircase ( check hotel internet site for pictures), and in general a modern theme throughout.
The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the center of town and rail station.
I fell in love with the water front downtown. Plenty of places to eat and as far as i could see a couple of dance clubs for those who enjoy nightlife :)
Only a block away from the hotel you can find the home of retired tennis player and now fashion guru, Bjørn Borg. This is where he lived during his early years. Nothing huge, but a fun thing to have seen when in little Sõdertalje !
Room was like many others have commented, small and layout was not really great, however, we only stayed in our room (standard double bed room), at night time so we never got bored with the room, but i can see how size could be of a problem if you have a lot of luggage etc.
Bathroom was ok - nothing exciting. Room also had a decent Tv and coffee/tea making facility's.
Breakfast buffe' was overwhelming! So many different kinds of options! The scandinavians love their bread and are famous for making time to enjoy breakfast.
Wish i had gotten up earlier to really feast ! If you are from outside of Scandinavia, the buffe' is worth paying extra for if it's not included !
Although the hotel is not a 5 star place, i still felt this was a nice option considering that Sõdertalje is a small and laid back town and that we didn't really have an option as we were part of a large wedding group.
All in all, a nice place with friendly staff and a nice stop over spot, if you are on road trip or just want to travel around Sweden.
