My family of four (2 adults, 2 children ages 9 and 12) spent two nights at the Story Hotel this past August. The experience was great. The hotel will especially appeal to those who like quirky, "non-cookie cutter" boutique hotels. The rooms are average size (we stayed in two rooms with king beds each). The decor is avant garde and actually reminded us of a haunted house (in a positive, fun way). The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful, and tended to our basic needs (calling a cab, recommending a great restaurant). The buffet breakfast offered fewer choices than other comparable hotels where we have stayed (e.g., no eggs, bacon, etc.) but it was certainly adequate and was very fresh and healthy (more typical Scandinavian fare with smoked fish, cheeses, etc.). Thus, no complaints there. Overall upside: great location walking distance to most attractions and plenty of nice restaurants; a ten minute cab ride from the main train station; friendly, helpful staff; nice, clean rooms; unique charm. Overall downside: if noise is a problem, then ask for rooms that do not overlook the street. Although certainly not unbearable and even though the hotel is not on a major thoroughfare, the street does get noisy, especially on the weekend when people pack the hotel's trendy bar. Other than that, no downside.
