We spent three days here in early August, having chosen the hotel over the Internet because of its centrality. It's a hotel with history, and the hotel owners are proud of it. Many prints and portraits hanging in the halls deal with its origins, development and famous owners, as it started as a grand town house with shops below. It was very hot while we were there, and as with most places in Scandinavia, there is no air conditioning, but we were provided with a fan which the staff had thoughtfully turned on well before we turned up, so the room was a pleasant temperature. The room was small-ish, but well appointed, with a good double bed, desk, chairs, TV, electric kettle and makings for coffee or tea. The en-suite bathroom was again small and typically Scandinavian (we have lived in Scandinavia and so are accustomed to the way bathrooms are typically laid out) but very adequate for purpose, clean and supplied with toiletries. Staff were always smiling and helpful. The lift was a wonderful survivor from the 1920s, all polished brass and fine woods, but if you have children with you, watch their fingers! For us, the highlight of travelling in Scandinavia are the breakfasts in hotels: smorgåsbord-style and with lots and lots to choose from. Every morning there were trays of breads and rolls, freshly sliced vegetables and fruits, pickles, yoghurt (plain and flavoured), filmjolk (a soured milk that's lovely with jam or honey -- try it!), boiled and scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, charcuterie, breakfast cereals (including porrige), tea, coffee and fruit juices, and a chaffing dish full of the most delicious pancakes. All this was served in the atmospheric medieval cellars under the hotel. In the afternoons, the hotel provided a pleasant public room with coffee, tea and biscuits, which we found a very nice way to refresh ourselves after a day of walking around the city. I would definitely go back to this hotel.
