“Good location for all Stockholm's main attractions”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

A good city centre hotel that is close to a lot of attractions, but without being too noisy and cramped.The hotel has a good ambience, with some lovely common spaces and period decor. The (single) room I had was comfortable and clean but didn't have the same quality of furnishings as the common areas. Breakfast includes a variety of cereals, breads, cheese, meat etc with a limited hot selection. The reception staff are very efficient and helpful, and all speak good English.

We stayed here as a family of four, (a 2-year old and a 5-year old child). We came early to the hotel but our room was ready for us with an extra bed and a great big crib for our youngest, waiting in our room. We got a BIG corner room.

Even though this is in the middle of Stockholm, the hotel is quite and we had two nights good rest in our room.

The location is one of the best in Stockholm! The hotel has a charming, swedish old decor. Great coffee, cappucino, caffee latte available all day in the dining room area.

Breakfast is good, not great but just enough to start the day on a full stomach. Fantastic bread!!!

I would recommend this to anyone!!!

It does state 4 star hotel at the entrance, but these star ratings are always difficult to use and compare between countries. In "my world" (I have travelled alot) it is a 4 star hotel, we loved our stay.

After looking for along time for a suitable hotel for a 2 night stay just before Christmas, me and my husband chose this one. And it was a good choice. Location - very good, close to everything - museums, old town, metro, boat tours, really nice, on a main, grand street by the water. We got a courtyard view room, which was good as we avoided the traffic noise. Rooms are big, bathrooms very small and very cute, al you need is there and all to a nice standard. Bed wasn't actually queen sized but two beds put together, which is the only minus.

Breakfast was really nice, lots of choice, savoury. A small sauna next to our room was a nice option, and the day room upstairs with city views was just perfect for an evening rest with a book and some beer. All nicely decorated with floral patterns and lots of colour.

Would definitely recommend this hotel. Just wish the overall Sweded prices weren't that high!

The hotel is well located in Central Stockholm in a beautiful building. The hotel is old fashioned with furniture original of the 20´......it is clean, but it look s a bit old and the restroom it is not new or nice.
When you arrive the check in is efficient but they will not welcome you with a smile........the breakfast is ok but not so much sweet stuff.....In general it may be better....

Our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed here in July. The hotel was charming and had a beautiful location on the waterfront. It looks just like in the picture. It was also very convenient; we could walk to most attactions. (Don't miss the Vasa museum, which is only a short walk away.) One lady at the front desk went out of her way to help me understand the bus schedules and checked times for me on the internet.

Our room was large, but did not have air conditioning. Still, we still slept well. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. The breads were better than anything I can buy in Cincinnati. Coffee was also very good. If we make it back to Stockholm this is definately where we will stay.

My wife and i stayed in this hotel in Sept. 2011 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were given the corner bedroom facing the street and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room! Very spacious with its own hallway! We had a good view of the bay from the mini balcony in the room and it wasn't all that noisy.

The staff was very helpful and easy to talk to. The breakfast corner was charming and the food was excellent. the whole hotel had that old-century feel, which we appreciated. Definitely different from the regular hotels and chains! There was a sitting area beside our room, and the whole place didn't feel like a hotel. It was very comfortable!

The location of this hotel was perfect! A few minutes walk from Djurgarden, a block away from the tram station and nearby sites. We had no problem accessing the city from here. My only regret was that we only stayed a short time in this wonderful hotel and in this wonderful city, but we are definitely going back!
