For a Courtyard property, this is unusually trendy and cool. The lobby is contemporary with a hip bar pumping out music in the evening and next to the bar is the Bjork Restaurant, which we did not try but looked very good. In the evening, the place reminded me slightly of a W property. The hotel is only 3 years old and everything still looks fresh and new. Rooms are clean and minimalist although fairly basic - it is a Courtyard after all. There is also a small but well equipped gym. Breakfast is served in the Bjork Restaurant; it is advertised as an American Breakfast and whilst perfectly adequate with a pretty good selection of both hot and cold items, it is a shame that very few Swedish breakfast dishes were available; why not some Swedish herring and smoked salmon?
The hotel is not in the city centre but on the western side of the Kungsholmen island, about 5 minutes walk from the nearest subway station and then just two stops to the Central Station. If the weather is good it is pefectly possible to walk into town, following the Norr Malarstrand road to the Town Hall is a beatiful walk along the Lake Malaren.
We had a slight mishap when checking in and when we asked to speak to the Duty Manager we were told "he is having his lunch break, please come back in an hour". When we said that surely the whole point of having a "Duty" Manager is that he should be on duty to deal with any urgent issues, the receptionist replied "he is entitled to his lunch break and he must not be disturbed.." which maybe shows that the level of training and service attitude is not quite up there with the top hotels of the City.
