As you might not expect from an owner who previously sang in a seriously uncool band (Benny from Abba, no less), this is a pretty cool and funky hotel in a good location (10 mins walk to Gamla Stan old town). Friendly and efficient service (taking people up to their rooms seems to have fallen out of fashion but I'm happy with that), nice artwork on the walls, a fairly ugly metal door, but a nice little room behind it. There was barely any space around the bed but hidden behind curtains was a safe, minibar, iron/board and umbrella. Another bonus was the long list of free movies available - a rare treat in a hotel. The shower was excellent - big and with a rainshower option which I love.
