I traveled to Sweden last week for business. I was very excited as it was my first time traveling to any Scandinavian country. I checked in on Sunday and was staying a total of 5 nights. When I arrived, there was no clear indication where I could park to check in or where reception was. The park garage was behind the main hotel build, off the side road and there is no free parking, at least not for non-members.
Once inside, the interior hotel was nice. Their buffet restaurant sits on the side of the river and it was quit nice to sit outside during the long days.
My room was very no frills. Power is controlled by placing your card in a card holder by the door, much like at hotels in the Caribbean. The furniture was old Ikea, reading lamps by the bed didn't work and there was no alarm clock for by a TV clock that was not set and would loss time when you you removed your card and left the room. There was no face cloths provided by the hotel and the hot water tap was restricted. The only saving grace was the bed, two single bed pushed together but the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time.
Additionally, the room had floor to ceiling curtains, to block the sun during sleeping hours, useful for those who need darkness to sleep, and there was a mini frig with soda and snacks for purchase.
The meals provided where average, but there are lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance. If I have to go again, I may try another hotel.
