“Great business hotel”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

It's fairly close to Solna station, which is 2 stops from Stockholm C. (About 5 mins walk)
It's integrated into the Arena complex, which would be great for a match or a concert.
Service is really good. Rooms feels spacious in comparison to a bunch of other hotels in Stockholm. VERY comfy bed. Nice and modern.

Breakfast is good, there is a great selection. The waffle machine is awesome. :D

There's currently a bunch of construction going on for the mall, but it's doesn't bother.

The restaurant at the 25th floor is fabulous. More pricey, smaller selection, but amazing dishes.

I'd happily stay again.

Room Tip: The higher up, the better! Purely for the views.

This hotel doesn't get full rating only because at the moment it is located in an area under construction. Probably in one year or two, when they finish to build the shopping mall and the other things around it, my rating will be higher. It's new, it's nice and fancy, very good service and very good food. Rooms are nice and the price is competitive.

Nice, modern and clean rooms. Comfortable beds.
Real city feeling and wonderful view from our room on hte 19th floor. If you are going to a cncoert in Friends arena this is a great choise since it is so close to the arena which you reach from indoor.

Good business hotel, close to office.
Integrated in arena complex.
Wouldn't choose it for private trip, not much around yet (will be in 2015, biiig mall).
Could be an interesting place in the future but not yet.

I stayed there three nights and enjoyed every minute of it! The hotel makes a great impression already from the outside; the black and white facade with round, different in size windows definitely captures the attention. The inside is as impressive. The rooms are fresh and clean with modern, industrial design and soft, comfortable beds. If you stay on one of the upper floors, you can enjoy a nice view of the city through those circle-shaped windows, and the window ledge is broad enough to sit on.

The restaurant is spacious and provides the guests with a generous breakfast buffet. I loved it that there was a waffle maker - is was a really nice touch! The gym and sauna are nice as well, however I got the feeling that the sauna was often being turned off as two times the temperature was merely 25 degrees and we had to call the front desk to turn it on.

The working staff (reception, restaurant, housekeeping) is very friendly and helpful. They definitely want to provide the guests with the best service.

The only things I could complain about were the cold sauna and the key cards. They began to stop working only after a few hours, so we had to change them frequently at the front desk in order to access our room.

The hotel offers everything you want. The beds are good, the rooms are clean, friendly staff, I like the furniture in the lobby and breakfast room. They organise morning-runs. The restaurant could be better (more choice of dishes & healthier) and it sucks there is no tea-facility in the room and no locker...

We've been there with friends for one of the concerts being organised at the Arena. You can't imagine better place to stay. The surroundings is however a bit industrial with a lot of construction work. The hotel itself is very modern and comfortable. Breakfest buffet is one of the most reach and differantiated I have ever seen. The prices on the 25th floor restaurant are very high as well... BTW having read one of the previous opinions I want to underline that there was no english menu at the restaurant which is rather strange.
For sure I'll come back if I go again to the Arena. For other reasons it's not so obvious as the prices are high even it's not Stokholm
