Stockholm in general is rather expensive for the megre UK salary, but this place is a real find. I was going with work but wanted to book somewhere nice ish so i could take my partner as well. Thing is, any really nice hotel is super expensive, usually right on the harbour, not condusive to work expenses! Anyway i found this hotel which was a reasonable price for Stockholm. And I'm really glad i booked her. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The design of the hotel is really cool, Art Nouveau i think. Old elevator with swinging iron door, its really pretty. The rooms are small ish but clean and simple, mine had a lovel little balcony overlooking the street which was really nice, kind of reminded me of Paris. The location is great, its about a 20 minute walk from the train station, it is in a quite posh area, really nice (way too expensive) shops, really safe with some nice restaurants and bars near bar. It was nice to stay here but to head to the funky part of town (Gamla Stan) its probably about a 35 min walk, which is a nice walk and more or less straght down the single main street. Gamla Stan is great (jazz bar there is really funky). Overall, this was a lovely place to stay and good value for money, remember Sweden is more expensive than UK, you are looking at about £6-£7 a pint. There is a Swedish sauna which you can us on your own for free, book at reception. no pool. Highly recommended though
