1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My score is based on the price. I had the unfortunate experience of staying here when my usual two hotels were sold out. My room was the size of a brook cupboard and was cold. The reception was awkward both in and out and there was a general apathy from the staff. Breakfast was poor, limited in choice compared to... More

I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel in August. The service was great and although my room was small, it had everything in it. There were many options for breakfast and free WIFI. The best thing about the hotel was its location right next to the main train station. It was also a short walk away from the... More

Rooms are very nice, beds comfortable. Staff (each of them!) was very friendly and helpful. Location is also good, with a lot to eat right around the corner. WIFI is free, you can just get access for as many devices as you want. Unfortunately, WIFI in the rooms didn't work at the beginning, but was later fixed. In the lobby... More

This hotel is less than a 5 minute walk from the main train station along a major road, but the rooms faced an inner courtyard so they were quiet. The staff were friendly, and the breakfast buffet was good.

Excellent, clean & comfortable modern hotel room. Hotel is an ideal base from which to travel around and see Stockholm. Staff were very friendly and helpful also the breakfast was good. Only negatives are very minor such as lighting in bathroom could have been better & electrical cord for the electric kettle wasn't long enough but this did not detract... More

The staff was very nice and polite and willing to help, breakfest was large and great and perfect location near the central station and with a bus stop on the hotel door! The only issue is that it has been discovered that there is only central AC in the rooms and it was not working. Rooms than have been very... More

Hotel has a great location in Stockholm. It is only a block away from where the Arlanda Express arrives and very close to Central Station. There are also many great shops and restaurants with in walking distance of this hotel. My room was very charming and loved the 2 sets of dumbbells that were in the room. My room overlooked... More

Travelling solo often means a small room for one. This room was definitely compact, but cleverly designed to maximise efficient use of the space, with Swedish flair. There are several common areas, including an outdoor area. The bed was comfortable, bathroom clean, clothes hanging space is minimal. Breakfast was excellent with a huge variety; and I also had a great... More

Big windows, a quiet courtyard, comfortable [tho soft] bed, great shower head in a bathroom with natural light. funky colour scheme and even weights in room! Not luxurious but ever so comfortable and across the street from the Arlanda train. It's not a neighbourhood you want to linger in - but a perfect hotel for an overnight stay in Stockholm.

Stayed 2 nights - June 23/24. A good experience overall. Close and easy to find from central train station. Check in was super easy and professional. Room was clean and quiet (note it had a view of the receiving docks in the back, but still quiet). Breakfast was also good. Definitely recommended.
