The registration process was painfully slow, with queues. The reception wasn't sure whether "the superior bedroom" was ready at 4 pm. Your car is "valeted" which means they take the key and garage it somewhere for 39 Swedish kroner a night! You're told you have to give them half an hour's notice if you want your car or wish to retrieve something from it. The atmosphere nearby is as unsavoury as Kings Cross in London can be, so much so that the hotel closes the side entrance near the central station in the afternoon/early evening even though it is not far from the Ahlens store (equivalent of John Lewis in Oxford Street). The hotel itself is massive but strange with a huge and menacingly dark foyer where it is impossible to see or read anything and a "Sky Bar" which claims a view over Stockholm which is singularly unimpressive and which charges 141 Kroner for a glass of red wine with 40 cl of beer. The breakfast (extra at 112 Sw. Kroner per person) is OK but it is too crowded and disorganised. The bedroom and shower room were of a good standard but the air conditioning was very noisy and no windows could be opened because of the atrium (?). The wifi was slow and erratic despite the fact that we were on the business floor.
