This hotel's reason for being seems to be its proximity to International Fairs conference centre, and so there is a kind of 'take it or leave it' attitude among staff. Although I had booked a double room with my partner they gave us a room with a cot in it ("You don't have to pay extra for it" "But there's no room for luggage or to move in the room!"), and eventually found us another. Hours of opening (for meals, etc.) advertised in the room guides did not match what actually happened. Bed mattresses were very soft! The proximity to the excellent Stockholm transportation network is a real plus, but during the construction on the Alvsjö station the signage to the hotel is not very clear-- so we wandered around quite a bit with luggage in tow looking for the hotel. The advantage for this hotel is not what it is but what it is near. That said, the breakfast smorgasbord was lavish, the wifi was free and consistent, and I loved the in-room pants press!
