[This review is just for the restaurant]

My wife and I had the best food so far on our Scandinavian tour. This restaurant serves tapas-style servings, so be prepared to order 5-6 plates for two people.

We started with a luscious mushroom soup, full and rich. Then the sugar-cured trout melts in your mouth. A goat-cheese watermelon salad, sprinkled with fresh mint...wonderful. This was followed by a single, huge scallop, done to perfection, floating in a tasty cream froth. A small-but-good zucchini salad finished us off.

With 2 glasses of wine, this came to SEK 700, which is just fine with me for superb food in a downtown location.

It has already made its mark on the city's bar/restaurant scene, (the owners are former nightclub entrepreneurs), and it's located less than a martini glass throw from the epicenter of the Stockholm nightlife.
More importantly, it's a pleasant hotel experience. Rooms are surprisingly large and comes with a less hefty pricetag. Read/see more about it here: http://www.guidebook.se/?p=579

It is a nice enough hotel, but I would not stay there again. The room was good but the lack of a functional reception and no tourist information (at least that I saw) was a bit dissapointing. They forgot to clean my room one day, did not deliver a phone message (again, there seems to be few staff--except for the breakfast), and gave me the wrong bill on the way out and because I was in a hurry I had to call them to get it sorted out. It seemed like they hadn't really worked out the people part of running a hotel.

Very cute and trendy hotel with some very nice if a bit small rooms. However, the restaurant in the hotel is absolutely stunning. We stayed in a "Bathroom" room, which was cozy and sexy...

I'll admit that I thought this hotel would be a little to bohemian chic for me. I am usually one that favours the classical hotels, however, I had friends that found the Story Hotel in Wallpaper Magazine. I decided it looked cool, and I could at least give it a try. Little did we know how uber cool it would be! It's easy to find the street, but you will easily pass the hotel if you are in a car. Once you find it, you can't miss it. There are actually 3 entrances (bar, hotel, and restaurant). Each of them connect once you are inside, but it's just part of the industrial design. Once we got inside, we were all rapidly texting and calling each other saying....you have to come check out my room. All of our rooms were different, which made it even more interesting. A member of staff said that the building is actually part of an old auto repair shop, joined with an apartment building. There are 2 different elevators (modern, and the old style lift that's manual). They have a huge indoor bar, and an outside bar. You can see each of them thru clear panels in the ceiling/floor. The staff is awesome!! Very friendly , and helpful. I liked the fact that they keep it simple, since there isn't really any need for a concierge, bellhop, etc. Food is great - breakfast is included in your tab. They have different types of tea, coffee, and juice in the morning.
Yes, the rooms are small, but it's a totally different experience. Here's the thing....they make the small spaces work VERY WELL! I live in New York, and I am accustomed to small and organized. They created things in this hotel that I never would have thought about. It's been 5 days since we all left, and we can't stop talking about this place. I am for sure going back!! (I just hope they don't increase the prices too high). Overall, there's not a bad thing to be found with this hotel. It's a must!

Excellent hotel with the best location in town. Located right in the middle of where things happen. Friendly and helpful staff, great food and service in the restaurant and bar, superb rooms that didn't feel like a normal hotel room. Only minus was lack of furniture for all the cloths bought on shopping and some noise from the bars located just down the street.. But if you wanna stay where things happen in Stockholm and appreciate a fantastic hotel then Story is the place to go... .end of story...

The service was incredibly friendly: Although there is no reception desk and the check-in and check-out procedure are done in an automated "kiosk", the staff is always ready to help. The hotel itself is a perfect example of industrial design - the rooms are basically piece of art. Free fridge and a nice TV are also good especially due to many international programs.

The breakfast buffet is quite small in choice, compared to other hotels but the served food is delicious - home made bakery, prosciutto ham, honey with coffee - all you need for good breakfast. The only drawback is that soft boiled eggs are too soft.

Location is ok, 15 minutes walking from the central station and a good starting point for walks around Stockholm. There are few pubs and restaurants nearby where one can get some meal (e.g. Friday's). The hotel itself has a bar.
