Stayed here just for the one night. We got there after dark, so couldn't see the area very well, but the hotel is located by the Quayside, where you can go on boat trips during the summer. The hotel itself was very nice and the staff were very welcoming. The rooms appear to be quite old fashioned, but everything worked well and we were very comfortable there.
Breakfast was good, with a wide variety of food to choose from and a good view across the quay.
We didn't eat at the hotel for our evening meal and instead we walked over to the Old Town, Gamla Stan, which was a pleasant walking distance away. Lots of restaurants to choose from there, though it can get quite busy.
If you are staying here in between flights, as we did, you can get the train from the airport into the town. It is fast and frequent, though probably a bit on the expensive side, as the taxi driver reckoned he could have done the jounrye for the same cost. Buy your tickets in the airport and ask for a return which saves you a bit of money. We had to get a taxi from the train to the hotel - it is a bit too far to walk.
