This hotel is conveniently located for shopping, public transport and business. I chose this location given that it is within 20-25 minutes walk from the convention centre where I was attending a conference for the week. The walk was very enjoyable, along the canals for part of the way.
This city is so stress-free in its ambience and very clean and green!! Its such a pleasure to see the gardens, trees and overall greenery in the European cities I've been to given that its simply not a priority for us back home in North American cities.
Sweden, of course, is on the expensive side, however I found the rate for this hotel, which included a continental breakfast that was the best I have had to date, and the very comfortable and pleasant room to be well worth the rate.
I have to say that what struck me the most about this hotel, and the room, was the design for optimal space efficiency. I have attached a few photos of the bathroom to show how well designed this 5' x 5' bathroom was. The shower glass doors that folded back were so very functional for ease of movement, and as well their curved shape provided an aesthetic that was appreciated.
The bed....hard to get out of...so comfortable.
There really is alot to be said about the form and function of Swedish design. I generally prefer a traditional english country/victorian decor, but I can now say that I have a real appreciation for the more contemporary/modern design that the Swedes are known for. Overall, a very pleasant stay
I must mention too, that it was the trip advisor review that made me decide on this hotel for my conference trip.
