We booked this hotel through ebookers.com which gave us a 20% promo code discount on top of a 10% hotel discount that was already being offered. Booking direct with the hotel gives you a 150 SKR voucher to use for food and drink; we were much better off taking the discount off the room (discount came to 725 SKR and we paid £300 for two nights)! Hotel is really easy to find with a T station about 200m away (take the Stureplan exit). Check in was easy, friendly and efficient and our room was ready early so we were able to check in with no hassle. We were in room 507 which is a balcony room. Size wise the room was compact; a king sized bed took up a fair amount of space but you could still comfortably move around the room, just not have a party in it! This room is described as 'medium' on the hotels website. Bathroom was a decent size with a great shower (no bath). Breakfast is included in the room rate so there's no faffing around in the restaurant with room numbers etc. which was really nice. Great buffet selection. Lots of fresh salads, fruits, yogurt, eggs, pastries, 4 different teas, coffee, breads etc. For the lovers of a 'full English' you won't find that here. Wi-Fi is available free throughout the hotel and rooms; this was great for us as it avoided huge roaming charges and let us do some research on attractions, travel etc. however the wifi itself can be a bit sketchy, dropping out completely sometimes. One downside to the room itself was that it was hot at times. There was a control in the bathroom which looked like a thermostat however we couldn't work out how to cool the room. To be fair, we also didn't ask! The hotel common areas and rooms are all quite funky with distressed concrete walls, exposed brick and art. It also has a heated 'backyard' if you fancy a drink outside.
