This hotel is not the cheapest, but from a competative view it is not the most expensive.
One night in the Sheraton was more expensive than 4 nights in this Scandic hotel.
The location is very nice. Just a few blocks walking from the train station where the airport train Arlanda Express arrives.
The entrance and the lobby are looking great. A disadvantage is the people smoking outside just next to the entrance. With my sensitive lungs, smoke is annoying for me..
The lobby has several places where you can hook up your laptop and work.
In the room there is a free wireless internet available with an acceptable performance.
At the reception I was being served very good. They gave me good directions to my room.
So first walking to the room with a lot of luggage is a little challenge.
I had to walk down a ramp, through a restaurant through an corridor, opening a door with my keycard. First down two steps, than turn left and went up ~6 steps, turned right again up ~6 steps, straight ahead, up ~8 steps, turn left into the corridor.
Yes, I've found my room, open the door and..... no windows !
It's an inside room.
Ok, one advantage, no noise from the street. The room was rather quiet.
Since there was a congress or so going on in Stockholm, it was a challenge to find a room, so I did not try to get another room.
But if you are claustrofobic, be aware when booking this hotel.
The room itself was clean, had a nice desk to work on.
The bathroom was spacious.
The bed was good and I did have enough space in the cupboard for storing my clothes.
A little safe was available.
Breakfast was good, but you need to be early, otherwise it's a quest to find an empty table.
