This is one of the nicer city Hiltons - not too ritzy where you feel you should not have sweat pants on, but a nice and friendly atmosphere. We stayed a couple of nights here and the location was perfect.
The location was great. Out of our window we had a view of the river and almost all of Gamla Stan. The decor is very nice with its high polished wood look. The rooms and bathrooms are nice size and for the most part you can sleep during the day with no light and no noise. Important since the sun does not go down until around 11PM.
It was easy to walk the block over to Slussen station and take the metro to central station (2 stops). You can also just walk over the bridge and be in Gamla Stan in 5 minutes. The area around Slussen is also nice. If you want a quick meal, there is a subway sandwich shop one block to the right from the front door of the hotel. Additional shops and bars are there to. All the bars sell food so you can get a pint and food almost anywhere. The food of choice is the swedish meatballs of course. Probably the cheapest meals around.
As far as the executive lounge, I was in there at 7 AM when they opened and the hostess there was very nice and helpful. They have the standard breakfast food items, but it is not crowded and it was easy to catch up on emails from back home. Free internet anywhere in the hotel. Based on all of the above and the very helpful staff, this is one of my top picks for a vacation hotel in Stockholm.
