We had a nice stay for a short weekend break. The positive first......Great location near to Gamle Stan and many restaurants, easy walking distance to town. Generally the hotel is good. The bar is efficient if a bit lacking in atmosphere, the staff are good but well trained rather than friendly and a good feature is that one needs a room key to operate the lift to any of the floors. One last positive was that when we reported a light bulb out it was fixed vary quickly.
We stayed here two years ago and enjoyed it more. Recommend paying a bit more to get an upgraded room ( we did last time) since the one we got this time was small, dark and very hot since it was almost impossible to turn the heat down. The ice machine didn't work on our floor and was not fixed despite reporting it to reception. Lastly it seems the rooms could use a bit of maintenance.
Would we stay here next time? Probably not, but if we couldn't find a good alternative we wouldn't worry be too worried about it - we would order an upgrade though.
