“A pleasant break from usual hotel rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

The Sky Hotel Apartments are not your typical hotel accommodations. They are, in fact, what their name implies - apartments. Ours was a one bedroom with kitchenette (cook top, microwave, refrigerator), dining area and living area. It was completely equipped with dishes, cookware, etc. There were also two flat screens tv's. Breakfast was served during the week on the 17th floor overlooking Linkoping. A big plus for us was that there were washers and dryers available free of charge. An electronic sign up board allows you to sign up for a particular time to use them, so there's no waiting or disappointment.
The apartments are located about fifteen minutes on foot from the center of Likoping in a commercial area next tonthe train tracks. The apartment was, however, completely soundproof. The reception staff was very helpful with suggestions.
While not a typical hotel stay, the Sky Hotel Apartments were a great deal.

In the midst of a three- week trip, we found the Sky Hotel Apartments a perfect break from hotels. The hotel is about a 15 - 20 minute walk into Linkoping, a surprisingly pretty and interesting city. It is also a short drive to scenic sites along the Gota Canal and Vadstena,, a medieval city with a castle and church.
What we really liked is being able to do laundry. On our four trips to Sweden, we discovered that there are no public laundries and that hotels don't have laundry rooms. Sky Hotel Apartments has three rooms with free facilities (yes, free). Just be sure to sign up at an electronic board just beyond the reception area because you will need a specific time. Because the hotel is geared to business travelers and conference attendees, you won't find a kitchen stocked with condiments and spices, but you have what you need to make your own meals. There is also a vending machine with inexpensive microwaveable meals, and Ikea is a short drive if you would like some Swedish comfort food. They offer coffee and pastry for less than $1.00 as well as a range of inexpensive food in the cafeteria.
The hotel is in an industrial neighborhood, and trains ran right outside our room, but we never heard any noise. The staff were very helpful with suggestions about places to visit, even though they don't usually get tourists. I think we were a bit of an oddity.
Breakfast is served a bit early (6:30 - 8:30) and only Monday through Friday. It's not as extensive as what we found at other hotels, but there is cereal, breads and rolls, meat, cheese, pastries, etc.

This is a place which I will come back to! Spacious apartments with kitchen. Clean, modern and private? Off the center but that didn't bother me.

Brilliant, brand new hotel apartment with good Wi-Fi at the rooms. Friendly and helpful stuff. Excellent value for money. Stunning views. Just be aware that this is not a "proper" hotel: once you read carefully what Sky offers (weekly cleaning/change of towels, breakfast only at weekdays, self-service check-in at the weekends (which works perfectly fine), etc. you can't get any disappointed! Very close to the train station just make sure you ask for directions to follow the side-walk behind the railways. Venting machines for coffee, snacks, soft drinks even for microwave meals work with credit cards so no Swedish coins needed. The best accommodation option in town at this rate. I am so happy I will book with Sky in my Stockholm trip, too! I will certainly stay there during my next visit.

On the map the location doesn't seem so good (between busy streets and railway terrain) but don't let that fool you. I'll admit that the flat we got was on 16'th floor, so we heard nothing from below (and the view was obviously spectacular from up there). But it was my impression, that the windows were soundproof enough to ensure peace, also on lower placed apartments.
There's a supermarket right across the railroad tracks, so shopping for food is quite easy.
There's an underground parking for hotel guests.
The flat we got was really great.
A 1 room apartment with modern furniture and fully equipped. Very nice bathroom.
The only minus I can think of, is that if you plan to eat out and do not want to drive - it's a bit of a distance to the center.
But if you can accept that, it's a great place for that price.
