      The hotel is very comfortable and clean enough for me. The wireless LAN connection worked immediately since the hotel staff care about it. He asked the used of the network and write down PIN code. Well prepared.

      when we left, we could finally breathe ahhhh such a waste dump and a shame they let it get run down like this.

      stains all over the carpets that have a really bad smell, dirt all over walls, bad breakfast, the whole place needs new owner, new staff, new everything...should not even be a one star and shame on them for charging people that much and it's never had anything new put in it since it was built. Do not stay here...

      The hotel is wel located, near a metro station. The room is spacious and was well cleaned . The breakfast is very good, with a lot of items. I relly liked the hotel, it was a great surprise as I chose it for the price and the possibility of having a third person in the room (older child) without expending a lot of money. I recomend the hotel.

      It is in the middle of stockholm for a reasonable price. Although asked for a large single person room is was a very small room.

      Bar is closed during the summertime.

      They have charged me my stay again after I've paid it on your website. I'm waiting my creditcard bill to know if I have been charged twice yes/no. To be continued. Pictures look nicer then the reality.

      The staff was really helpful.It is situated in a nice area,close to t-bana station ( metro).Next to the wonderful Humlegarden Park,ideal for a relaxing evening walk,at least during warm summer days.

      The room we were given was a bit small but clean,anyway.

    • Older travelers

      Relatively inexpensive in a very expensive city; location is ok, relatively close to metro and trams.

      Room not vacuumed for the 3 days we were there. Bathroom small and not well laid out (the toilet is lined up so that you can't get up straight from it, the sink is in the way!!!). No ac, on a relatively noisy street, if you need to have the window open to sleep.

      Good breakfast included. Small room, comfortable beds and pillows. Great location, shopping,and close to all sightseeing.

      Could use some updating.Room was small but comfortable. Bar closed for summer. Restaurant no longer serving dinner. Paid high price for summer season, $190 for tiny room with no amenities.Would recommend only at good discounted rate.

      I liked the comfort at this hotel = very good bed; after 14 hours sightseeing, next morning, I woke up fresh and was ready to visit new places in the city. The hotel location was a great choice ! Close to Arlanda express and another public transportations.I would stay at this hotel again. Magdalena

      The hotel has quite good position, not far from metro stop (ostermalmstorg, red line), 5 min walking distance to the shopping area, around 15 minuts by walk to the train/bus station (T-Centralen), same 15 min by walk to old center (gamla stan). Rooms are small but nice and clean, very nice breakfast.

      The only thing to complain - is the price, that is comparing to other european countries hotels is quite high, though for Stockholm, that is generally expensive is quite average.
