I spent one night in this hotel during my most recent business trip to Stockholm and was disappointed to find how small and uncomfortable the room is. Though the hotel is only a few minutes away from a T-Bana station and a mere 20 minutes walk from the center, the rooms are akin to those you will find in a hostel: in the basement, with bunk beds, no windows and a bathroom so tiny that it made me feel very claustrophobic. I traveled in the winter and needed a place to hang my winter coat, arrange my scarf and winter boots. With only one plastic hanger, the upper bunk bed ended up serving as the storage space. A winding staircase and a room key that wasn't functioning properly did not make access to the room any easier. I didn't get much sleep and throughout the night kept waking up at night, bumping my head. On the brighter side, the bed sheets were impeccably clean and breakfast with a view of the terrace made up for a sleepless night: a wonderful selection of breads, crackers, cheeses, jams, coffee and tea. A fresh copy of International Herald Tribune almost brought a smile on my face, if not for all the drawbacks. And although I am writing this review two months after the initial trip, I still wonder to this day why Rex Petit has a ranking of a two stars' hotel. A hostel ranking would be less misleading.
