My wife and I stayed at this property July 7-8, 2013 and could not have had a better experience in Stockholm!
The hotel is not in the heart of the city, which is what we were after, but it is a short 10-15 minute walk to Gamla Stan and any boat tour you might want. The island is quiet, the hotel is quite clean, the staff was incredibly helpful, and the breakfast is everything you might want.
The rooms are a comfortable size and the bathrooms, while a bit tight, are still more than large enough. I have to agree with other reviewers about the odd sink, though...it is just a bit weird.
One tip for anyone flying in - don't look for a cab ride in, which wound up costing us around 600 SEK (roughly $90 USD). We discovered there is a very convenient, and much less expensive option is the bus. This bus drops you off at the Central Terminal, which is about a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel, or a much less expensive taxi ride.
We would absolutely recommend looking into this hotel if you are in Stockholm!
