My husband and I were very happy with the hotel. The location is simply fantastic! The Arlanda Airport Express Train (20 mins to the airport, 240 Kr for 1 person, 280 Kr for 2 people) is right outside the hotel, as is the Central Station. The sister hotel, Nordic Light Hotel, is opposite and has the spa and gym shared between the 2 hotels. There are 100s of restaurants, shops (Drottningatan, Gallerian Mall, Kungsgatan), Foreign Exchange Shops just a minute away from the hotel. And although it is so central, the area is very safe and clean-not edgy at all, even at night.
The Ice Bar of Stockholm is located in this hotel and seems to be a tourist must-do. There are crowds of tourists that seem to be brought to this place and although the lobby is always full, it is never unpleasantly or annoyingly so.
We stayed for 4 nights and got a good rate of 120 euros/night and we were happy with our room, which was cute and comfortable-good sized. The A/C was underpowered but this was a problem we faced all over Europe as there was a heat wave going on, and the air-conditioners were not meant for such weather. The internet is free if you have a laptop as they provide a data cable in each room to hook up your computer to. Wi-fi is available but must be paid for. In the room, they provide a safe, tea kettle (with nice teas and even cappucino powders), iron and ironing board. There was an ice machine on every floor and a shoe polish machine near the ground floor elevators.
As for the breakfast, it was very good. Lots of hot and cold options but the tea selection was especially wonderful with many exotic teas available in tea leaves. As vegetarians, we did not find too many things to eat besides yoghurt, oatmeal and fruits, but if you're not vegetarian, there is plenty. The breakfast room is small and tends to get cramped by 9 p.m. Service is very good and prompt though.
They have a spa but highly recommend the Clarions Hotel spa, which is quite close by (200 metres). The regular rate for a Swedish massage all over Stockholm was 1000 kr for an hour-quite expensive but consistently so. And the Clarions also allows you to use their pool and sauna if you use the spa.
They seem to have some free computers in the lobby which one can stand and use.
All in all, would stay here again, in a heartbeat!
