Although the view wasn't great, the room itself was lovely. The bathroom was spacious and well-equipped, the bed was big and I actually liked the separate duvets on the double bed (no arguing over the covers!). Our sleep was never interrupted, the mattress on the bed was very comfortable and the neighbourhood was quiet. The staff were helpful and were always seen to be smiling. Free internet access was available but don't expect Skype or VoIP to work (it seemed like the ports were blocked). The TV was a good size and I love the fact that programmes weren't ever dubbed over (so there was always something in English to watch).
I can't overstate how great the included breakfast buffet was! They had everything from toast, rolls, pancakes, meat balls, bacon, scrambled eggs, smoked fish, hams, many cheeses, yoghurt, muesli, a wide selection of fresh fruit and (according to my partner) "the best fresh coffee I have ever tasted". As well as tea, a selection of fruit juices were available and chilled water.
Everything looked and tasted fresh (it all looked very appetising) and it was open until later than I would expect - 10:00.
Stockholm is an expensive city and the included breakfast meant that you could quite easily eat a big breakfast to last you until the evening (saving money on lunch/snacks during the day).
The hotel is situated next to a medium-sized supermarket (technically it is sort of underneath the hotel) and so, if you couldn't face finding a restaurant (or paying a lot for a meal), you could always pop next door and buy some bread and cheese, etc.
The closest tube station was about 10 minutes walk away, which is really not an issue at all considering the money you save by being just that little bit away from the centre. I think that the tube journey took about 5 minutes to the central station (Stockholm's metro system is wonderful!!).
