Nice hotel, nice staff and nice food

Posted Jan 3, 2017
Pros: The decoration, the staff, the comfort and the food.
Cons: The temperature control in the room can be improved.
Location: The hotel itself is outside the Town Centre but in a 30 min to 1 hour walk you can get to any of the main attractions. The tube is also very close.
We stayed for 5 days during Christmas. Staff was always nice, the breakfast and Christmas dinner were also nice. The room was clean and comfortable but a little bit hot even when we tried to adjust the temperature.

Nice hotel close to city centre

Posted Nov 18, 2016
Pros: Typically Scandinavian, functional and fuss free but comfortable with an excellent, light breakfast available to set us up for the day
Cons: Lunch/Evening menus could be a bit more original and inspiring
Location: One of the main shopping areas is roughly 15-20 mins walk from the hotel
This is a nice, typically Scandinavian, hotel relatively close to the city centre and shopping areas. My daughter and I were looking for a quiet location not too far from the centre for a couple of nights and this suited perfectly. The room we were allocated was a little small but perfectly adequate for a short trip.

Good hotel in a nice area

Posted Nov 7, 2016
Pros: Staff and reception were very friendly and helpful.
Location: 10 minutes' walk to nearby shopping area of Stureplan within Birger Jarl street.
I stayed here for 6 nights. It's a little further away from the waterfront than many of the other expensive hotels, but 20 minutes' walk takes you down there, and it was definitely worth the cost. I couldn't fault this hotel at all. It's a little "corporate" but there were also many other tourists staying. Hotel breakfast was included in my price, a good decision, because food and drink is very expensive in Sweden especially Stockholm, even just average restaurants, compared to London for example.

Pros: This hotel had everything we needed! Cleanliness, good wifi, comfy bed, and relaxing private bathroom.
Cons: A little small. The shower could barely fit one person in it. Our view wasn't the greatest either. But over all it was a great choice!
Location: Right next to all the clubs, bars, restaurants and shops. 20 min walk to central station. About 40 min walk to modern art museum.
