If you are not going to an event at Globen, there is no reason to stay here.
The entrance is so unnoticable, they had to paint the whole wall light blue and write "Entrance" in white letters as large as a person. And even then you are still wondering if this could be the entrance to a hotel. Going through the door and into the hotel, you stop and turn again because the cafe inside, where cases of empty bottles are stacked upon each other and trays of cans are sitting on the tables, ensures you that this is not the entrance. So you get a bit angry at the taxi driver that took you to the wrong place. Until your curiosity takes you a step further and you discover the reception around the corner.
The clerk at the desk is effective and polite, so check-in goes swift. The elevator takes you surprisingly fast to the 8th floor, where you enter an extremely long hall, doors on both sides, carpet smothered with building dust. Then you open the door and enter what seems like a cabin on an old, large boat. A box of a TV, from the looks of it from the mid eighties, from the name I'd guess it's from Poalnd, sits in the middle of the rather large room, also with a characteristic eighties feeling over it. The bathroom has a bath tub with a monstrous sliding door from edge to roof on it, and the shower itself and the wall mounted plastic soap dispensers enhances the eighties ferry feeling.
I actually had a good nigh of sleep - until the traffic started at 6 and I had to close the window. Which helped until the construction work outside started at 7.
Breakfast area is nice enough, but why have let us choose between 15 minute or 2 minute eggs when you may cook them for 6?
Oh - and I almost forgot to mention: Unless you are going to an event in the Globe, you are in the middle of f...ing nowhere. There is nothing going on around the hotel, you will need to get in a cab to experience even the slightest bit of Stockholm.
