I was hesitating whether to rate this facility as average or poor. The friendliness of the hotel staff, including of the shuttle service, and its close location to Stockholm Arlanda airport was finally decisive, however, this is by far not the best hotel I have stayed in.
As said, positive experiences started after landing. A quick call to the hotel and within 10 minutes - as promised - a shuttle bus picked up from stop 18 right outside of the terminal building (seems to be also the case for Terminals 4 and 5.) The trip took no longer than 12 mins to the hotel which is indeed in the middle of nowhere a bit - the closest shop is at a gas station 5 mins walk away. Check-in was very quick, fix the transport service for next morning to the airport (a bigger bus departs every half hour from the hotel).
In the lobby there is a solo PC where Internet is complementary, however, WiFi in the hotel is only for a (quite expensive) charge.
I had a single bed room, well, this was hardly up to 3 star standards.... Old, very basic, no minibar or fridge. And it really felt old and used. I had stayed in other scandinavian hotels but this one is unfortunately below their standards. The bathroom was one of the most disfunctional that I have ever seen - it was not only small, but there was no chance to take a normal shower either without knocking into a wall or an unused doorframe left there or the toilet.... Also, no hairdryer, no amenities, but rather nasty appliances. And be prepared that the walls do not seem to be soundproof....
There are altogether 7 TV channels available on the small, old TV set. The bed was okay, so I had a good night sleep. Before that I had a drink in the "bar/restaurant" which looks rather like a dark hole (can't imagine why they do not have proper lighting there). Again, it was quite expensive....
Okay, the breakfast (available on the 3rd floor) was adequate, please note that there is no sign of staff there, so fully self-service, and after finishing you are supposed to bring your tray and dishes to the trolley.
There is also a sauna within the hotel. Another positive point is that they cater for the early travellers - the hotel offers an express breakfast from 4.30am.
For one night stay the hotel is just adequate, however, the hotel desperately needs some renovation. I am not sure that I would stay there again.
