I wanted to give the Clarion Hotel 5 stars but there were two negatives:
1. The bed was soft and not the most relaxing to sleep on (almost every bed I have slept in across Scandinavia has been soft so maybe that is just the way they like their beds).
2. Our room had a "Hong Kong" view, i.e. we had a view of a blank wall 2 meters from our window - the only way we could see the sky was a small chink of light when stood by the window (our room 584 seemed to be the only one to suffer from this).
Onto the good stuff:
1. The breakfast was the best we have had on our travels across Scandinavia - a nice mix of Swedish options and wider European foods.
2. The restaurant area is very cool and funky - it is a real destination which you wouldn't mind visiting specifically for the décor
3. The bedroom is clean and functional. Each floor has a different Scandinavian/Nordic theme (Finnish, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish - not sure about Icelandic).
The location is ok - next to the central station. Stockholm's Old Town is a bit of a hike but is still walk-able. Everything is reasonably close.
In short - I would definitely stay at the Clarion if I was in Stockholm again - but I would make sure I got another room, one with some daylight!
