I had a business trip a few weeks ago, and I stayed at the Rica Helsfyr hotel.
Getting right into the things, the service was good, with breakfast including an open buffet of a very good selection, tho nothing special.
The value was very good considering the services rendered.
The beds were comfortable and the pillows were sufficient.
The cleaning personnel came by every day, and tidied up everything.
Location right next to the underground station was a point in its favor, for those that like to use the underground to get around. Moving around with the car after a point in the day however, would be problematic, as there's only one street that gathers cars from a large area that feeds into the highway, so traffic jams might be an issue.
Finally the rooms were large enough and well equipped, however the phonic isolation was quite bad allowing me to hear the nearby highway.
