The young man on the reception was friendly and helpful, within the limitations of the hotel. The fish-tank was a pleasant addition, It was nice to see that the fish in it were healthy, and their tank was obviouly well taken care of and clean.
I walked into my room, 624, and was amazed at how small it was. It suddenly didn't seem as small, however, once I saw the bathroom, which was tiny. To be fair, the room and bathroom were both clean, and the room was comfortable. The single bed was very comfortable. The television had a fair selection of channels, which were Swedish in origin, but were not dubbed into Swedish on English-speaking programmes. They chose instead to leave them in English with Swedish subtitles. (An excellent idea in my opinion.) The thing that really amazed me was the total lack of wardrobes. I have never witnessed that before. There is a sort of wooden frame with two racks, and a half-dozen hangers. This blocks access to the door. Also, the hangers cannot hang straight, as they are wider than the space between the rack and the wall. You have to hang them at an angle. To be fair, the young man on reception did offer me a larger room, but, when I was told they also did not have wardrobes, I decided I would stay put.
The shower was poor. The water was too cool, and would not go higher. It also started to go colder after a minute or two. The shampoo was provided in a wall hung receptacle, and was difficult to get any. (Not sure if it needed topping up, or it was poorly designed.) The shampoo I did get out was of very poor quality, and provided very little lather. The towels were of good size and quality.
Breakfast was average to good. I did appreciate the bread rolls, which were tasty and still warm. There was plenty of choice, and the staff were helpful. There is no restaurant facility apart from breakfast.
The free Wi-fi was quick, and easy to access.
