I would have ranked it higher if the front desk had told me that I could have save 50% on the valet parking fee by self parking about 6 blocks away at H&M. I moved my car after the first nite.

Nice touches like the stained glass and carved wood in the stairwell. The bar scene can be fun and you'll never know who might show up, Bjorn Borg lives nearby. In the Millenium Trilogy the antagonist Hans-Erk Wernerstrom lives on the same street.

We didn't think the breakfast buffet approx $27/person was worth it and ate at a variety of nearby cafes for approx $7 total.

Room Tip: If you ask for a room away from the street also ask to be away from the alley. On Friday mornings t...

For 200 euros a night I got a room from first floor having a view to ugly back alley. I didn't expect any proper view for the price. Still I was surprised that the room was quite small. Not London small, but still quite compact. I was anyhow very pleased for the room, because it was very clean and everything excluding the tv remote was new and high quality. The 200 didn't include breakfast and that cost extra 21 euros.

+ High quality
+ Friendly and helpful service
+ Great location
- At the entry level price didn't provide good value.

Very nice hotel. The location is great the staff was very nice and the rooms were spacious , clean and the bed was very comfy. Love that they have robes avail. The downstairs bar was very nice and happening. Did not eat at the hotel but the food looked delicious. The food in Stockholm was very fresh and yummy. Also love that you can drink water from the tap ..It's delicious. LOL
Would for sure stay again.

Stayed here for two nights whilst on business in Sweden. The hotel location is fantastic, right on the strand look out over the water. Hotel is about a 20 minute walk from central station or you take the subway to Östermalmstorg which is even closer (about 5 minute walk from hotel).
Room was very clean and spacious, staff were very friendly and the breakfast was very good - lots of selection.
Apparently the cocktails in the TBar were also excellent (my colleague had one, I did not), but the barman was a very nice guy - like all the staff just very helpful and friendly.
Only downside of the hotel is the "retreat" is not a gym like some booking websites might have you believe, it's just a cross trainer and Jacuzzi that you have to pre-book - as someone who trains regularly this was not ideal - but for 2 nights everything else about the hotel made up for it.

Hotel is beatiful and very nice; clean, quiet and not chain-one. In rooms nice books to read, robes etc. (A little amusing because every item on your desk or closet had a note: 'If you want to take this home, it costis you xxx euros...')
Breakfast was the best ever, lot of fruits, fresh and nice, very good!!

We stayed for 4 days. Beautiful building, spacious rooms. Very clean. Professional service from the front desk. Only downside the room was quite hot at night and you can't adjust the temperature in the rooms, we opened a window, so we managed. Really great location. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful older, but up to date, hotel, greatest location you can get. The best breakfast ever and wonderful restaurant. We had a room with a balcony and enjoyed all 5 days. They have free bicycles, which is a great way of seeing Stockholm.
