Reviewed December 28, 2012

It is in the Gamla Stan (the historycal center of Stockholm) so you can get almost everywhere just walking. The crew is very nice, wifi is free. My room was little, but very very nice. The breakfast is very good (with even fresh orange juice handmade).

I can really recommend this hotel for it's nice and friendly feeling. The room (403) I stayed in for five nights was very quiet and had a lot of space.
The hotel is so centrally located, but not a noise from traffic or subway. The metrostation is just 100 meters way.

Service was excellent. Breakfast delicious. We travelled with our 10 month old and there was a highchair provided and a travel cot complete with its own quilt and pillow.
The hotel was very quaint and extremely clean and very quiet.
The lift is tiny and this caused some problems with taking our pushchair up to the room, however the staff were happy for us to leave it in the baggage room.
Our bathroom was tiny but perfectly usuable.
The tea and coffee supplied in the foyer was very welcome as were the biscuits.
The location was great as it was near to the ferry and the underground network, we had no problems getting to the hotel using public transport from the airport.

Stayed for 2 nights found very easily from station.

Whilst expensive in a way probably worth it for the location, the lovely building and charming room.

Slept well despite the central location not too noisy at all.

Not a lover of shower only offerings.

Breakfast was of good quality if not entirely to my taste. Surprised that the only staff member visible at any time failed to acknowledge me, especially as there were a maximum of 3 guests at any time… Not in keeping with other folk working in the hotel.

No restaurant but plenty of choice at different price levels nearby

Free wi fi although I has some problem with codes lasting immediately resolved by giving me a new one.

Remember your door does not lock automatically.

Would stay here again if lucky enough to come back to this wonderful city.

a small place, with small rooms. well equipped, internet service is good, breakfast - excellent. staff - kind and helpful. walking distance from C-station, no need for taxi/cab from there - just walk straight. very recommended. note that there is also tram station nearby.

Stayed here several times on business trips. Cute little hotel in Gamla Stan close to restaurants, close to underground on a calm street that might get a bit noisy when the refuse truck passes by in the middle of the night. The better rooms has big nice beds while the smaller rooms has simpler beds. Nice clean bathrooms, heating works well in winter, free wifi and very nice Swedish breakfast with a lot of things to choose from and newspapers to read.

Room Tip: Select a room higher up (less street noise) and not the budget rooms (they have small beds). If you...

It's in a good location - as long as they're not digging up the road as they were when I was there.
Don't expect a lively, bustle of activity - there isn't one. It's for sleeping ... and breakfast (which was really quite good.)
A lovely old-fashioned building - reasonably comfortable and good value in a city that is eye-wateringly expensive.
