A beautiful hotel set ontop of a hill with commanding views over the outskirts of Stockholm. From our room all you could see was forest and water, and you would not know that you were less than fifteen minutes from the heart of the city.
The room (No 525) was a beauty with lovely Nordic design, with wooden floorboards, plenty of space and mod cons. Bathroom was pokie but was fully stocked with plenty of amenities.
Hotel staff were extremely helpful and flexible. With the warm weather they were able to provide a fan (alas no air con), early check in was no problem and they even happily arranged an early breakfast on the morning we departed.
The hotel is located on one of Stockholm's many islands but is only a short trip by light rail and subway to the city centre. Because of its idyllic location it was an extremely peaceful setting. The only caution is the walk from the station to the hotel is a little challenging with luggage. Its a bit steep.
Overall highly recommended.
