I stayed here for the duration of a week and left with a mixed bag of experiences.
First of all the location of this hotel is very good. Located just a few meters away from the nearest Metro station you can easily get around town. The area around the hotel has plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Great for people watching too!
The rooms are clean and tidy but very small. Not to mention the toilets! In my case I could not sit on the toilet because the paper roll holder was in the way of my legs. Other than that I don't mind small rooms because I only sleep there. The room I had was quiet and I was never bothered by any noise. I can imagine that it's different if you stay on the first floors. The hotel has a well visited disco that will blast techno well into the night.
The front desk was good on basic services but terrible with any extras. I had several envelopes left for me at the front desk and NOT ONCE did I get a message that they were there. I had to insist and beg for them to locate my envelopes.
Last but not least, the internet connection at the hotel is under all standards terrible! Oh my God how can you be in Sweden in 2013 and not even be able to get into your gmail without the connection timing out. And forget about youtube or streaming anything. Booo for that.
