When booking this hotel, I needed a reasonable price for an airport stay and this fit the bill. It is easily accessed by half-hourly shuttle bus which is easily found at the airport. The ride takes only 10 minutes.
First impressions upon arriving were "what a strange layout." There is a main building which houses the restaurant and bar, while all the rooms are 'outside' in clusters of houses with 4 rooms in each. It's very strange, but I actually kinda liked it!
Check in was quick, with good directions to my 'house' included. I was on the bottom floor of the house nearest the entrance, and you literally open the door from the outside and there is your room. Now, yes, the decor is a little dated inside, but it had everything I wanted and was comfortable. It was dubbed a 'single room' but the bed is actually a small double which was nice to see, and the room was larger than I anticipated.
My favourite part of the room was the large leather reclining armchair and foot stool! I spent all evening sat in it watching TV! Again the bathroom is a little dated, but was functional and the shower was good which is usually my main bugbear with hotels! The room heating was on full blast when I arrived, but opening the window and using the in-room console soon lowered it and it kept it at the right temperature which is what I wanted.
The bed was quite soft, and I usually don't like soft beds, but this was a fairly decent nights sleep. No complaints there. Breakfast is served 04:00-10:00 on weekends so I opted for a lay in and went across at 09:15. There was still plenty available, including a small hot selection. Again, no complaints here, as it was standard buffet breakfast fayre. One word of advice to those looking for juices - they are in a big black/silver cabinet with a tap and an iPad on top... the quirky thing is, the iPad controls how you dispense the juice! Took me ages to find as it wasn't labelled in English.
Again, the shuttle was timely and quick. Really, I have no complaints about this hotel and am glad I chose it. It's close enough to the airport by shuttle, it's in a nice quiet location which minimises noise, and the accommodation (while a little dated, and probably in need of a refresh) was more than comfortable enough, and even a little bit 'homely.' I'd certainly consider this hotel again for Stockholm Airport.
