“No sound insulation and poor breakfast”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Visitied a client just around the corner, so good location for this visit. But at SEK 1295 including breakfast the price was rather stiff for the standard. I had a large room. Good room and bathroom, but there was absolutely NO sound insulation and I could hear the talking in the rooms next door. Noise from the street was also very troublesom.
The breakfast was ok with regards to selection, but what you could select had very poor quality.

Booked this hotel for a one night stay because I was in town for an event. It was by Stockholm standards relatively cheap.

I had booked a small one bedroom because of the price. It was located on the top floor, which meant it was pretty cheap. The room was small with no wardrobe or hangers, so if you're in town for a longer stay, this kind of room would probably not work for you.

The decor of the hotel and room was chic and it was clean.

Breakfast was slightly subpar with Scandinavian standards, I missed some hot items like scrambled eggs and bacon.

The area, Kungsholmen, is nice and there are several restaurants relatively close to the hotel.

The closest subway is Fridhemsplan, within a five - seven minute walk away.

Very conveniently located in central Stockholm. Rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping in the neighbourhood and with the hotel located a short walk to the metro, getting around town is a breeze. If you are in town for a few days I would recommend you buy a 24 or 72 hour travel pass which gives you unlimited travel on all public transportation.

Located in a relatively quiet inner city district of Kungsholmen, 5 minutes walk from the Fridhemsplan T Bahn station. It's also possible to walk to the Central bus/rail stations in around 25 minutes.

I suspect this establishment might have previously been a 1960's office block, but it still works well as a hotel and has been fitted out to a high standard.

The open plan reception area at street level also include a lounge/bar with comfortable designer furniture, as well as the breakfast area. The reception staff had a fairly low key presence, but were friendly, helpful and efficient. The bar facility was also relatively low key and prices for alcohol, well, very similar to every other bar and restaurant in the land.

Although our room was on the smaller side, it still gave us sufficient space for a short city break and was well presented. We found the twin beds with mattress toppers really comfortable and importantly for Sweden, the room seemed well insulated from the winter temperatures. The shower room was fitted out to a high standard and included under floor heating.

We did think that the décor in the corridors and landings was starting to look a bit shabby in places but this was not representative of the hotel overall.

The sauna, located on the 4th floor, was bookable for 1 hour slots and gave exclusive use, which was ideal for couples. The sauna suite was reasonably clean, but it never seemed to get really hot and it's a shame that nothing was provided in terms of loungers or seating.

The breakfast offered a good selection of continental fare including fresh bread and some Swedish products.

Just an observation, but the graphic used by the chain looks oddly dated and more akin to something used in the 1960's. Strange really because it doesn't really reflect the brand or Swedish design flair.

All in all, we enjoyed out 3 night stay over the New Year holiday. The offering is distinctly Swedish without the IKEA furnishings and contemporary in style. It's only a small local chain yet manages to achieve something different to many of the larger international chains.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side face the street, but rooms are well insulated and we didn't experience a...

I stayed with my 12yo son for one night in a double room facing the main road. The room was small but comfortable. The heating was just right as we came in off the snowy street. Breakfast was a nice cold spread with enough variety to keep both me and my son happy. It started at 6.30am allowing us to eat leisurely enough to make a 10am flight using public transport to get to the airport.

Price wise it is average but I gave them 4 stars because they changed a non refundable expedia booking to another day after we missed our flight. That is nice these days!

Room Tip: Take a room with a window unless you are on a tight budger! Our room had three windows onto the mai...

Superb hotel by all means.
It is located on Kungsholmen, abput a 45 minute walk to the city center or a 5 minute ride on the subway (Fridhemsplan station is 5 minutes away). Also, the Flygbussarna bus from the airport stops at St. Eriksplan, which is a 15 minute walk to the hotel.

Hotel is exceptionaly clean and very well designed. Service was excellent, and there seems to be nothing that is too hard.

I stayed in the XL room - it was large enough, and our party of 4 managed in there quite well. Room is very clean, bathroom is great.

All in all, a superb experience!

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the inner courtyard.

Nice hotel. Romms are a little small and breakfast is very basic. Everything in the hotel looks quite new and in a good state. The hotel is very clean. Location is good - near the underground. Great deal for the price.
