For this price category (1695 SEK/night), the quality of the hotel was below my expectations.
The first unpleasant thing when one arrives is that one can not simply enter the hotel: The door is locked and one has to explain over an intercom that one has a reservation. Afterwards, one gets a code to open the door lock. This might of course be good for safety reasons, but it is nevetheless not very welcoming.
When one enters, one is first impressed by the nice square atrium (with a high glass room) in which the reception is located. Afterwards, this turned also out to be of some disadvantage. The attrium is also the place where breakfast and dinner is served, so one is actually eating in the reception room. Even worse is that the bar is behind the same desk as the reception desk. So, if you want to order a beer, you first have to wait before some guests are registered which is realy frustrating.
The hotel is clean and well maintained but the rooms are really small. Also the corridors are really narrow (one meter at most), which is not really safe in case of fire.
The rooms on the inside of the atrium face of course the reception/breakfast area which is not very pleasant. I had a room on the 5th floor, above the glass roof, so that I luckily didn't have this problem.
The breakfast is average or below average. The tables are also placed in a rather impractical way (too close to each other) and the place is also not cosy at all.
The good thing about the hotel is of course its location: Just at a shopping street (Drottningsgata) and also not to far from the central station (where you can take the Arlanda Express to the airport).
