We spent three nights at this hotel in July. The location is terrific. You can walk to the harbor to get the boats or go to the market for your breakfast. Public transportation is right around the corner as is the tourist information center. Our "executive double" room was the most luxurious we had on our 25 day Scandianvian trip. The room included toiletries, robe, slippers, a lot of light, TV, fridge, desk with with two chairs, separate table with another chair, 3-drawer cabinet for clothes, safe, ironing board and iron, umbrella, pants press, "real" hangers, full bath with separate shower and bathtub, vanity mirror and complete set of toiletries (rare for Scandinavian hotels we found), and lots of towels. International Herald Tribune and Financial Times in lobby in the mornings. Lending library with limited selection of books right off the reception area. Yes, one might expect all this of a 5-star hotel, but not all 5-stars provide these items. Typical of expensive hotels, they charge a fortune for wifi, but the tourist information center has free wifi and is only 2 blocks away.
We parked in the Kluuvikatu parking area rather than the hotel's valet parking. It was 900 NK for three days.... not cheap either. Because we booked early and stayed for three days and the euro was declining relative to the dollar, we had an excellent stay for less than lesser hotels during our trip.
We did not eat at the hotel as breakfast did not come with the room and we easily found other places for dinners.
