The best part of this stay was checking in and cheking out. I've not met a more professional, lovely staff in 30 years of business travel. If you are traveling on business, or using this for a short stay, this is a wonderful hotel. Many Americans are shocked that the showers only have "half a glass" in a tub room. That's because showers are showers, and tubs are tubs with hand showers -- its a difference between the US and most of Europe. If you choose a room with a shower, you will have a glass shower. If you choose a bath tub, you will have a tub, with 1/2 a glass door, and a hand shower that hangs from the position of a typical shower head. Most people understand that a shower head can be removed and used in the tub to say, wash your hair, or bathe and infant. The 1/2 glass is there so that you keep the rinsing near the front of the tub. If you spray the water from the hand shower, it will go all over the floor. This isn't a mistake in the hotel's bathroom design as other reviewers have pointed out; it's a mistake on the perception of the reviewer.
Breakfast was efficient and plenty to choose from. It is buffet style, so if you are looking for table service, you should go outside of the hotel.
It is next to a large conference center, and across the roand from the Ciity Hall. Please don't be foolish and try to cross the busy streets jaywalking -- walk a little further and you will see adequate and legal spaces to cross the street.
If taking the train from the airport, the location can't be beat. It is walking distance from the train station -- but if arriving in poor weather, or late at night, catch a cab there for about 50 SEK.
Upgrade to business class if you want the beautiful breakfast buffet pictured by travelers on this site. That alone is worth the upgrade (free breakfast), along with free wifi and a higher floor.
