Not only did the room feel like a prison cell, the bathroom also stank of sewage. Not the best place I have ever stayed in. Did however fall in love a little bit with the silly seventies carpet. Also the location is excellent but next time I will stay in another budget hotel not so far from this location which... More

I've never stayed in a hotel with no windows. It was great for sleeping, but note where the lights are before you turn them out, or keep your phone nearby. My first morning consisted of me feeling my way around a room so dark I could not see my hands, trying to find a switch. The downside of the windowless... More

The location of this hotel is good if you need to stay near railway station/easy connection to airport. But you pay a big price for that, I stayed in a small jail like cell underground with no window. The bed was narrow but comfortable mattress. The long corridors seemed like the ones on ferry ships. the "sort of elevator' broke... More

Thanks for your frank review. I´m sorry to hear your room reminded of a jail cell; certainly the rooms without window may to some feel a bit claustrofobic and perhaps this notion is enhanced by the image of a ferry (an understandable comparasion, given their lenght). I would recommend a room with window, but perhaps that option wasn´t possible during... More

Friendly staff and close to the main bus/train station in Stockholm. Complimentary breakfast buffet which was good. Strange elevator but if you need one it is there. More of a platform that moves up and down. As one reviewer mentioned, he had a room without windows. You do need to pay a little more for a room that has a... More

This is not a hotel for those who intend to visit Stockholm more than a few days. Nice, compact rooms with clean soft beds. The location is perfect and breakfast small but nice. A bit crowded, come early if you want to eat in some peace and quiet.

Upgraded to suite no 4 with my wife. Checked-in with short of time for an evening event. Started with a shoe polish in their machine that though left oil-drained stains on my new Italian shoes. Showed this to receptionist who agreed to take the costs and fwd the complaint to front desk manager. The room had no phone but nicely... More

I expected more from this hotel, so as I went downstairs from the reception to my room I discovered a room without windows about the same size as the cabins at the boats between Stockholm and Helsinki/Tallinn/Turku etc. It was only a place to sleep. Bathrooms were new and fresh. The breakfast was good and the personal at the breakfast... More

We are sad to hear that you didn't like your room, unfortunatly windowless rooms aren't for everyone - we do have rooms with windows as well, so next time (if you consider to come back) we suggest that you book one of them instead and hope that a room with window will work better for you. More

Kind of a weird hotel. You might think it is a big hotel since it is located in a large building with modern glass facade, but those are offices. The hotel is a single floor one level down from the entrance with only one row of hotel rooms with windows facing a back yard/street. Most rooms are windowless since the... More

There may be plans to renovate/upgrade this hotel to what I have experienced in other First Hotels in Sweden and it certainly needs it. Had single room with window but still very small/pokey. Breakfast mediocre with limited offerings (coffee was fine because it is from a quality machine) and hardly competitive with equivalent breakfast offerings from centre city hotels in... More
