“Small hotel with good comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The hotel has a new name. It is Ibis Style hotel now.
Not only the hotel is small but the rooms to. So if you need a dance floor next to your bed it is not your place. But how cares about the size of the room if the bed is perfect?

Very good bed,
Good location,
Tunnelbana (metro) station is only 20 meters from the entrance.

Boring and simple breakfast,

There were quite a few emails exchanged with the hotel throughout the months previous to our arrival due to an extra bed for our room. The staff replying was always very nice and helpful, but never, in any of the emails, have they mentioned the construction works taking place (according to previous reviews, taking place since 2010).
Noises of drills and other construction machines can be heard from as early as 6:30am, something you don't want to listen when on holidays and trying to sleep a bit more.
The room is nice, on the ground floor facing the backyard, but the windows cannot be opened and therefore it becomes to hot during the night, as there is no AC. The refills of such things as toilet paper, tissues or shampoo were only done upon complaints in the reception.
The breakfast is good, quite variable, but the staff is quite terrible, rude and uninterested. Not helpful at all and some of them barely spoke English! Sometimes you'd ask for more cold milk and they'd say there was any left, and 2min later another lady would come with more milk.
The reception staff is very nice and helpful and always attended any complaint.
The location is very good, only a few minutes away from the tube and lots of buses going towards the centre, and easy walk to the centre as well.
Still, was quite disappointing, as the images you see on their website doesn't match the reality.

First of all there is a renovation in the hotel. And there was no information about it anywhere. Building materials have been made through main entrance. We have booked for two twin rooms (the first one for me and my mother and second one one is for my grandmothers). We arrived a bit early, otherwise we were lucky and one room for my grandmothers was ready. But it was very very small for them. They are both 80 y.o. and it was difficult for them to move in the room. When we tried to check-in in the evening they couldn't find second room for me and my mother like there was no reservation for this room. Anyway, we got a room much bigger then the first one. Also there is a ground floor where other rooms are situated and I can honestly say that they are much better, spacious and modern. Our rooms were old-fashioned. Breakfast was good, quite variable, a lot of pastries, different choice of cheese, bread, butter, jam, fresh fruites and etc. Service depend on staff. Hotel owner wasn't friendly and barely spoke english but reception girl was good. Location is good: 20 minutes walking maximum and you're in the Drottningatan street and Gamla Stan. In my opinion, in general hotel spoiled the impression from Stockholm, despite the fact it was my third time in this incredible city.

The hotel is very well situated. Close to the city center across from the Vasakyrken, and with the Odenplan Tunnelban station just around the corner. It is comfortable and good value for the money, but the rooms (mine at least) was quite small. I would have liked a chair and a desk to sit and do a little work, but no room for that. Likewise no room for a coffee/tea tray or minibar. The overall standard is nice as is the friendly staff. It was being renovated, when I was there, so there will probably be some improvements soon. Ok breakfast, but no hot dishes.

Arrived, after having made a booking. Specified in writing at time of booking that we needed 2 seperate beds as we are a mother and son. They booked us into a double bed. After making a complaint, they offered us two seperate rooms. This was ok but we wanted to stay in the one room. Hotel is convenient, near T station, across from a huge church (occasional bell chimes!). Rooms were comfy, bathrooms a bit small. Good for the price. Breakfast was very good, quality and variety - eggs, meats, cheeses, etc.

We booked 2 double rooms and a single room. The single room did not have a shower and toilet in the room. One double room had a toilet but no shower. The towels in the room where still wet and dirty. The last double room did have a toilet and a shower but had mold in the shower. Carpets where stained.
Staff att breakfast was uninterested.
The only positive was the location.

There are many better hotels in Stockholm against much better rates.
