      Relaxed atmosphere, location within city, the breakfast!

      Room lacked a wardrobe/proper space to hang clothes for a 5-night stay. Disappointed there was no live jazz in the bar as advertised, during our stay

      Very nice design, good rooms, comfortable bedding and a nice bathroom. I asked for an extra bed for my daughter beforehand and it was all set up upon arrival. The breakfast was quite nice, you could sit outside on the balcony and there was good variety. Having free wifi as well as a computer and printer in the lobby was useful. The staff was always friendly. Location was good for this cost. Even if you had to walk somewhat to reach the heart of the city, there were plenty of coffee shops, convience stores and restaurants nearby. Also, the metro is very close to the hotel, if needed. Overall, it was a nice experience and the hotel added to our appreciation of Stockholm.

      The hotel is perfectly located near a metro station, 3 stops from Gamla Stan. It takes about 10 minutes to reach the very center of the city. Interesting design of the rooms with canopies abobe beds, Liked a breakfast and a bar in the evenings with life music sometimes. Sauna for about 50 kronas (7,5 euros). I would recommend this hotel as good value for money nearby the city center.

      A bit small but in general egough size of bathroom.

      Great staff.

      Bathroom in room 1305 was tiny, also the room was advertised as a 'double' but in reality this was two beds placed next to each other.

      • Average rating
    • Couple

      The staff is very kind and helpful. The hotel is centrally located in Stockholm, walking distance from the center.

      The room offered is not in line with the pictures shown on bookings. First I was offered a room which had an inside window which seperated it from the breakfast room. The new room was better located, but did not have the promised luxury - such as nice design chairs, high quality products, etc.

    • Single

      Quality of food in bar was above expectations, and breakfast is also excellent. Service is friendly.

      Single rooms are very small... Might be worth paying for a double if you need to work from the room.

      Very nice hotel, friendly staff, cozy rooms and good breakfast. Well recommended.

      A fabulous little hotel. Stylish decor, with a real feeling of luxury despite the budget price. The room was small (as expected, being a single room as booked) but very comfortable with a superior bed. Excellent bathroom facilities. Lovely lounge with extras including coffee on tap and internet access. Superb breakfast options - perhaps I'm easily pleased in this department, but a proper continental choice which gave me a real taste for pickled herring! Polite, friendly staff who were always happy to help.

      Very minor niggles: the water from the power shower would flood out into the wider bathroom, and the charge convertors didn't seem to work for my phone.

      Staff (receptionists) were really kind and helpful, the location is quite central and good, the room was clean.

      Very small (single) rooms, no fridge, the cleaning staff did not clean the balcony from the snow, so it was impossible to go out.

      Tha staff was very polite and nice. The design and the concept of the hotel are very interesting. Jazz concerts almost every night. Breakfast was ok. Very good, in general.

      A bit far from the city center. The rooms are too hot in the summer, and there's no air conditioner. No bar in the room. No wardrobe.

      Breakfast was great!

      Not really clean, and not renovated at all. They have to paint again the rooms!
