After looking at reviews I was not sure whether I had booked a good hotel or not. I re-read after booking and wished I had gone for a double rather than the single as reviewsfor the single rooms were disappointing.
Arrived late midnight (but I had e-mailed to let them know -thank goodness I had having just read another reviewers tale). Went to the room, looked around and left! It was on the top floor, small, with furniture that had seen better days and an 80's style bathroom. Everything was so close together it would have been very claustrophobic. I noted at reception they were advertising upgrades for an extra charge and decided this was worth it. And it was. Double room was excellent and a complete contrast. Very modern, fresh, great colours and a great swedish feel. Loved the bathroom especially the shower. I found the bed very comfortable as I sleep better in soft beds.
I've had more extensive choices at breakfast at other hotels In Stockholm, but I really liked again the Swedish focus. It was like choosing breakfast from your own kitchen (in a nice way) and the food was very fresh. Just one pointer should the manager wish to read this review-breakfast staff could perhaps smile occasionally. Pity on one morning the cake and croissants disappeared to be given to a group that was having a meeting-before hotel guests had finished-not sure why.
Good location. I found it quiet even though I faced onto a street. Well except for the first morning when some street work started at 6.00 am (after a late arrival I did wonder what an earth I had done), but thank goodness it stop after a few hrs and was not a problem other mornings. Hotel was also quiet-thank you other guests!
So in summary single rooms let the hotel down -time for an upgrade? Double rooms excellent, breakfast excellent. Relaxing stay, good environment and general 'feel' to the hotel. Free coffee available all day in the breakfast/bar area, quick take away breakfast available for early morning starts if needed. Pleasant staff at reception when needed. I will want to stay again when next in Stockholm.
