Location is perfect for old town exploring and for the Gamla Stan T-banan stop and the street Lilla Nygatan was nice and quiet.
The hotel is atmospheric, traditional and cosy.
Our single rooms were compact, nicely furnished in traditional style, and the clean modern shower room (no bathtub) was well appointed. However, my ground floor room was a little noisy during the night as the sound of people coming in travelled up the corridor.
The breakfast bord was generous and adequate, with fresh oranges and electronic juicer a nice touch, and a decent selection of hot and cold items in a cute breakfast room.
The young fella at reception was polite, helpful and patient with my attempt to speak in bad Swedish!
There isn't much to the hotel itself - a very small reception area and no bar that we noticed, but it makes a well placed and quirky place to stop in the lovely old town and at SEK 895- per single room including the breakfast it seemed very reasonably priced for Stockholm.
I couldn't get the wifi working but don't know if that was the hotel's fault or not.
I would definitely stay here again on my next trip, and would ask for an upper floor room.
