We chose TIME on our way back through Stockholm having stayed in a hotel near the central station/Gamla Stan on the way out which cost the same price for one night as the TIME did for two nights - 2560SEK for two. We had room 417 which was comfortable a good size, nice clean bathroom (no bath very good size shower just needed an extra couple of inches on the shower screen when having a power shower), lovely chaise lounge but needed another comfy chair, good blackout curtains and nets, we overlooked the basketball court but did not hear any noise from it - fourth floor. We had taken out own travel kettle as other hotels did not have this service but noticed that TIME supply one on request. Staff did not explain that you needed the key card to work the lift - a good security measure - but we had not come across this before and could have done with the instruction first. There is a useful store nextdoor but one for supplies and Italian Restaurant in the evenings (not Sunday), there are plenty of places to eat at Odenpark - we had a nice meal outside the Italian 64 Odengatan opposite the Church. We left our baggage in the store on the final day and Reception directed us to Flygbussarna nearest stop for the airport - this was a 15 minute walk but easy with luggage on wheels up Nortullgatan to the end turn left into Norra Stationgattan keep the park Rodabergskolan on your left and the bus stop in the first in Skant Eriksgatan (bus £9.99), alternatively a five minute walk takes you to Odenpark were you can catch the tube to T-centralen for all rail/bus services (express train £26) , or when touring stay on until Gamla Stan etc. However we walked down Drotinggatan (main shopping street) every day to the City centre and Gamla Stan. There is a bus no 59 (and no 2?) which take you into the town nearer to the hotel but be warned you cannot pay on board, your ticket must be purchased before you travel at the ticket office or a stop with the ticket machine or ticket Vendor - we never found where they were. The breakfast was especially good and elements of it changed each day, cold buffet, cereal, scrambled egg and bacon, fruit etc, and it is important to eat well each morning as eating in Stockholm, particularly Gamla Stan and the City Centre was very expensive - made a recent trip to Paris seem positively reasonable. So if you have comfortable shoes - which you will need for Stockholm which is a super city and islands - make certain you take a boat trip - and intend to walk the city TIME will be fine. I would go back again rather than the more expensive hotel we stayed in whcih was not worth the extra per night just to be nearer to the water front.
