The lounge and reception area is very nice and the service at the reception is forthcoming and very high quality. The breakfast is fine normal type of Swedish breakfast with a fine selection. I had booked a room for one night and I am happy that I did not have to stay longer. The room generally need to get a bite of refurbishment - I love old classy hotels - but here the rooms looked tired. The room had the smallest toilet/bathroom with a very little shower. The rest of the room was equally small with no proper table and almost no floor space. The worst part of the stay was the noice from what I think was the ventilation. I am normally not bothered by noice and can sleep most places - but this was exceptional and really annoying - and prevented me from sleeping. Overall I would stay somewhere else the next time - like the haymarket Collapse
Classy old hotel

I stayed here over the first May bank holiday weekend with my husband and parents & think it's easier to break it down into pros and cons... Pros: Location - located on Stureplan, it's so easy to see the beautiful city of Stockholm from here and you're in spitting distance of plenty of shops, restaurants, etc. Staff - the reception staff were very friendly & helpful, particularly the young guy who worked on the Sunday and who arranged a room change for me and my husband and kindly manned the bar for us when we wanted to have a drink when the bar was closed... Decor - interesting decor. I particularly liked the clocks dotted around the place. Cons: The rooms - my husband and I were initially given a room on the 4th floor which didn't contain a safe, wardrobe, mirror...basic things a room usually contains even in a Travelodge(!) & so we were allocated a new room on the 6th floor. Apparently this was an "executive" room but it was dark, small & instead of there being a window there was a round hole like being on a boat...it did have an iron which the previous room didn't, so that was a bonus and appreciated. Towels were threadbare and absolutely tiny - I'm not large and it barely covered me, so my husband had no chance. The breakfast - very limited choice & the eggs were abysmal. Virtually no fruit, no opportunity for any coffee other than filter or espresso. No staff. Overcrowded. I only bothered twice out of four mornings. Cleaning - I never saw any cleaners and only the bare minimum was cleaned in the room. My husband forgot to take the "do not disturb" sign off on one morning and in every other hotel I have ever stayed in this sign gets ignored at some point as cleaners come back around to check the rooms they didn't clean earlier but there was no chance of that happening here. Glasses were not cleaned or replaced and things were not removed. Bar - a gorgeous area but it was closed two out of four evenings. Rooftop space - this is partly a pro as it was lovely but it isn't publicised anywhere and we only found it because we moved to the 6th floor. It's small but it's also a lovely sun-trap. The only issue is that you're. It allowed to drink your own drinks - the bar is on the ground floor (and was closed for two nights) and the lift takes forever anyway...however a bar man came up when we were sitting outside and told us off. We didn't even know the bar was open on the Tuesday as it hadn't been on Sunday or Monday! That wasn't very nice. Room service - there is none. Staff - there aren't any, anywhere! Apart from whoever the poor person is manning reception, there are no staff to be found anywhere. My family and I had a fabulous time in Stockholm but I would find it highly unlikely I would stay here again. It's not the worst hotel and there are positives but you really feel like you're getting very little for your money & I would rather pay more and receive a better service. Collapse

I'm still unsure how I feel about this hotel, even though I've left it a week before reviewing it! The reception staff were nice, friendly and quite helpful. However they seem to have to fulfill other roles as well. On two of the four nights we stayed they also had to man the bar if anyone wanted a drink and because of the non-existence of breakfast room staff (?) also had to deal with replenishment requests for breakfast, which is crazy when it's a busy time for people checking out etc. In the end we didn't bother. The breakfast was ok but only 2 choices of prepared fruit. If you don't like melon or pineapple then too bad! Our room, which is featured in the book in the reception area, had some elegant features, but I noticed that the arm of one of the chairs actually had ingrained dirt from some sort of spillage which looked as if it had been there for some time! The room was a good size, had a nice view and the bed was comfortable however the shower room was tiny! Fortunately we are quite small people and even we found it uncomfortable as there was so little space. Having said that, the shower itself was pretty good even if we felt we had to dry ourselves out in the bedroom. The room cleaning was hit and miss, the first day a lady cleaned and made the beds to a good standard but it went a bit downhill after that. Nothing major but I don't think much time was spent in there. The small roof terrace on floor 6 was lovely in the sun but you aren't allowed to take any of your own drinks there, entailing a trip down to the bar (if there was anyone serving) on the ground floor. Not quite as simple as it sounds as the lift only goes to floor 5, then along corridors and finally up again to floor 6! Little wonder we didn't find it until the last night. The location is very good and we were happy with the price compared to other nearby hotels but I'm still a little bemused as to whether or not I would stay here again. I'm not sure if the decor is meant to be 'shabby chic' or if it's just a bit on the worn out side. Hmm, maybe I will, maybe I won't. Really don't know! Collapse
Business trip to Stockholm

The cost hotel in the very hart of Stockholm. The room is rather small but everything you need is there. The breakfast choice is really surprising with selection of cheeses and tea leaves which I indeed needed.
