I enjoyed my stay here, it's just outside the city centre and has a tram stop just outside that brings you right in. The staff were very friendly and the rooms comfortable. Breakfast was good and had a great selection. The bar was nice and beware all beer in Sweden.. its strong and expensive. The hotel didnt have good facilities...

Kind and polite staff. Nice breakfast buffet with a lot of different, delicious foods. The conference rooms were nice and "airy". Clean rooms, modern interior and good view. Good wifi connection throughout the building.

The bathroom had many holes drilled in the wall showing older appliances that don't exist anymore, but is clean and functional. The food was very good, i ordered a burger...

The reviews on here made me think this would be rather average - but actually quite liked it. The room was large. Two single beds pushed together and a long wondow seat which I much appreciated as I could enjoy my 11th floor view out over the City. Not personally a fan of wooden floored hotel rooms - create unwanted...
