Stayed at this hotel for a weekend in November. We had a high room with a wall of glass which is excellent for the views. The room was large with a large bathroom with walk in shower. Flat screen tv with movable arm as it was on the side wall because of the windows, couch and desk, Wifi which is accessed by entering room number into the help screen on the TV which issues you with a code to log on. Lift from the Foyer is activated by putting in your key card into a slot and then pressing the button for the floor your are going to. The breakfast room was busy as it was the weekend but it coped very well with seats in the bar area as well as duplicate buffet tables so no big crush for food. The only downside of the room was that the air conditioning that ran all the time as the windows do not open. Korsvägen Bus Station is a few minutes walk from the Hotel. This is the first stop for the Airport bus ( Flygbussen) which takes about twenty minutes. Buy the ticket online and flash it on the reader on the bus. The Driver will tell you how many trips you have left. Going back to the airport the bus stops at the stance behind the one that it arrives at. Though the shelter has the livery of the bus on the shelter and no doubt people with suitcases. The bus sits right outside the arrivals door at the airport. And drops you off at departures. Saves the price of a taxi as there is no rail link. The bus stops at every stop on the route so no chance of missing yours. Trams run along the main road to the center but walking takes about 15 minutes.
