We've just got back from a lovely stay in Stockholm and we stayed in this hotel for three nights. Firstly, for the price, the location is very handy. This hotel is situated just a few minutes walk away from the Stadion underground station, and from there it is only a five minute journey into the city centre. Alternatively, it is a pleasant 20 minute walk. Although the area itself is quite quiet, there are bars just a short walk away.
Our room was nicely decorated and clean. And although we were located just by the lift on the fourth floor, it was very quiet.
One of the big advantages we found to this hotel was the food which is included in the price. Breakfast and an evening buffet, plus free coffee and cake in the afternoon means you can feasibly not eat out anywhere else. For someone travelling on a budget, this is a massive perk as eating out in Stockholm is not cheap. Breakfast is a fairly typical continental affair, with a few traditional Swedish additions. The evening meal only really has one choice, but for the three nights we were there it was always tasty and filling - exactly what was needed after a day in the snow! However, vegetarians may struggle to find their needs catered for every night.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good value and pleasant base to explore the city.
Just one last point too - travelling to the hotel / into the city from Arlanda airport can be pricey. If it's a weekday and there are more than two of you, a taxi will be your best bet at around 520 SEK. If you're travelling on Thursday - Sunday, the Arlanda Express, which departs from the city centre, is cheaper at around 380 SEK as it offers a two for one deal.
