“Delightful!”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

This was our second visit to the hotel. The first time in 2010 was so wonderful that we could not wait to come back. We had 2 deluxe sea view rooms for 3 nights. The rooms had beautiful views of the gardens and water front and were spacious, comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed the bountiful and delicious Scandinavian breakfast in the lovely dining room and patio. Cocktails on the patio and dinner in the restaurant were outstanding. The front desk and restaurant staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located but being on a small island it feels as if you are not in a major city. We were able to walk or take the water taxi to all major sites. It is a short (1.2mile), scenic walk from Central Station. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view-well worth it!

Stayed here for a long weekend. Our room was upgraded on arrival and it was lovely. Very spacious, modern and a typically scandanavian feel to it. Location was great, staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent! Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Adult family members and I stayed in this hotel for four nights. We were delighted with the airy rooms, the island setting within easy walking distance of the sights in Stockholm and the excellent dining as well. The breakfast buffet was outstanding - the best I've had anywhere, with gravad lax (cured salmon), eggs, artisinal breads, fresh fruit salad and divine coffee. As we were there in June, we could sit outside some mornings on the terrace as well. Everything is low key but very well run - this is not a hotel with all the standard features of an international chain, but the setting, attention to detail, service and dining are superior. We took the ferry to the Vasa Museum, to Gamla Stan and walked everywhere else. As an added bonus, the island is set up to provide a lot of public greenspace and we saw families picnicking on grass near the hotel grounds and the tennis court was in active use as well. I especially enjoyed the outdoor seating and the use of herbs, strawberry plants and other edible flowers as decorative accents around the property. For a change of scene, we went to another restaurant on the island: Hjerta - and this was great also. The fish is second to none in Stockholm! As a final note, I had several e-mails with the hotel manager and front desk staff who were always responsive, helpful and upbeat. This was a great experience overall!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the water are pleasant - but because the island is set up as parkland and has museums a...

We spent our new year's eve here, everything was perfect and the free Byredo soaps and perfumes were the icing on the cake. Top service: we had to ask for a second duvet since the one that was there was too small, and we received it immediately after. Finally, one of the best breakfasts we have ever had.

This is the perfect place to stay in Stockholm if you are visiting for pleasure. It is centrally located -- you can walk anywhere in 15 minutes -- but very peaceful and relaxing at the same time. The hotel offers a huge breakfast (we just ate breakfast and dinner while visiting) that you can just take out to the garden and enjoy. The staff is excellent without being stuffy or overly formal. Our room was small but we were expecting that when we booked.
