        Breakfast food was ok

        Only thing that was ok was breakfast. Although the breakfast room was old fashioned and needed an update. No air con in room so had window open but noise from docs was disturbing all night. Pillows ridiculous little cushion sized things. Was worse sleep I have ever had in any hotel. Sky bar is a joke and nothing like pictures. Looks and smells like something from 1950'S. Hotel is in a poor location and despite web site showing romantic view of river the truth is the view is of the shipyard and a power station that is right across the street. Price is crazy but this is partly the xchange rate but even at old xchange rate this hotel I overpriced. Worse hotel I have stayed in for many years

        We were upgraded which we really liked. We didn't have nice view from our room but the room was nice and big and newly renovated. We loved the breakfast.

        • Average rating
      • Older travelers

        Very small boiling room with no air condition, at street level => could not open windows to get air, people could walk right in. They said we were upgraded to a larger room! After first complaint they tried to tell us that 'hotels in Sweden don't have conditioning' and that all other rooms were occupied (we booked 4 weeks in advance). After complaining again - and letting them know I'm Swedish, though speaking English with the wife - they gave us a better room.

        - Location was perfect and the rooms are on top of building.

        - Very small rooms and there is no Air conditioning; to open the window we had to break something

        When this 4* hotel that charges €210/doubleroom/night and do not have an a/c, and instead putting in a table fan in the room, they cannot get anything than a low rating. It was extremely hot in this room for the whole weekend.

        Excellent breakfast. Very comfortable with nice touches in bathroom.Sky news.

        Slight lack of enthusiasm from some reception staff.

        The hotel was well situated for all city access, it was very clean and the food was good, with an excellent 12th floor resturant. The staff were friendly and helpfull. I was very pleased with my room and the hotel overall.

        Breakfast was OK. Wellness area was clean, but only a whirlpool and sauna.

        The pictures make you believe that the hotel has been renovated. However, the rooms we were in had old furniture (we changed once, because the window could not be opened). The bathroom was just a shower coming from the wall, covered with a curtain. Therefore the water was going everywhere. We paid EUR 140,00 per night, which I think was not reasonable for the state the hotel was in.

        All the little details in the room, from the tea and coffee, to the Q- tips in the bathroom, not to mention the excellent breakfast.

        A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

      • Family with children

        The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. The staff was friendly.

        Our requests for help with directions and logistics didn't work out well. We were mis-directed, and ill-advised on a couple of things. This caused some significant wasted time on our vacation.
