Do not stay in the rooms facing the street (odd numbers). Rather, you must request a room facing the inner courtyard with the even numbers. Outrageously, these rooms cost the same price. But when I saw the door open to the room across the hall I saw that they are much better than mine facing the street. This is because the street-facing rooms DO NOT HAVE A CLOSET but only a short bar on the wall with four hangers. And there is only 14 inches of space between the end of the bed and the wall. In contrast, the rooms facing the inner courtyard have a closet and plenty of room between the foot of the bed and the wall. Also, the bathrooms, though stylish, are very tight (but adequate). I realize that Stockholm is expensive, but surely there should be a difference in price between these two kinds of rooms and there is not. I suspect the square footage is the same but the bad room are horizontal i layout and the good rooms are long. But the odd-numbered rooms are truly uncomfortable and it would be impossible for a couple to stay in these odd-numbered rooms. Note, too, that there is no coffee-pot/tea kettle in room and no room mini-fridge. But it's the configuration of the off-numbered street-facing room that is truly unacceptable. Also, they might have chosen white for the wall color, rather than depressing grey. Yet the hotel otherwise is very nice. Terrific breakfasts. Great location near the metro. Staff is okay. Wi-fi is free and good. But if you make a reservation here you must insist on the inner courtyard-facing rooms, or else demand a discount.
