I arrived before check-in time and had asked in advance for a quiet room. First they said there were none left towards the courtyard, but then after a while, they said there were one or two. When I finally came back and the room was supposed to be ready, they gave me a key. Dragging my luggage along, I found this room was facing the front side, with the heavy traffic just underneath. So downstairs again, I was told the maid had forgotten to clean the other room, that's why they gave me this one! So they found the maid and told me to come back later for the room on towards the courtyard. Not the best start.
The room was smaller than the picture, and a bit dark. The bathroom was ok and functional. Although facing the courtyard, the room was quite noisy. There was a constant loud buzz from a ventilation system(?), and there was a sound of some water running and noise from some restaurant tables underneath. The noise was loud enough to make it difficult to hear the TV with the windows open. And no A/C..
The room was reasonably clean, but I had expected more from a Swedish hotel. The drinking glass had greasy fingerprints on it (from a previous guest or from the maid?), and was never changed, although I turned it around to make it looked used. And the toilet seat had spots on it when I arrived. I assume they were clean, but some of the towels and pillow covers were stained.
The staff was not too friendly or helpful. When I asked for exact directions to the transportation to airport, I was given a sort of a "over there" answer. And when I asked her for more exact information and to mark it on a map, she was annoyed and she actually marked the wrong streets.
If you need to be close to the transportation hub, the location is good, -if not, this is not exactly the nicest area of Stockholm.
For me the best part was the water boiler and the hardwood floor, -and I got a good price.
