Reviewed 7 July 2012

Sorry - but usually I'm quilte happy with the places I stay, but this is an exception. First room I got was 208. Very small but ok - but there was no water in the shower, so I was moved to 110. Same kind of room, but at groundlevel, so you have to choose between no fresh air with windows closed or a lot of street-noise from busy Birger Jarls Gaten. I went for the first option. But the main problem of the room, was the noise from some dance-club in the building, sending deep bass-beats into the room all night long, making sleep absolutely impossible. And yes - the bed was hard, but I kind of like that. And yes - the room was small, but that's what I paid for. But a hotel-room where sleeping is impossible because of the noise, that makes the whole idea of a hotel-room useless, and I therefore have to give out my first one-star report ever.

The best thing about this hotel is its gerat location: walking distance fom all main city attractions, many restaurants, pubs and shops are around. The room and the bathroom are very small and not so clean. The stuf is very welcoming, friendly and helpfull. Free wi fi in every room, basic breakfast.

This hotel is situated very convenient in the center of Stockholm. It is not new or even newly renovated, but it seems like they are aware of that and the staff gives you great service. It has a medium to low pricing(depending on where you book and what days). The rooms are clean, a bit old, but with an old splendor to it somehow. I didn't eat the breakfast due to early morning meeting but wasn't that excited that it was served in the next door Chinese restaurant... If you are visiting Stockholm for just a night or want a centrally located hotel with reasonable pricing - this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: rooms toward the street are somewhat more noisy, but not a huge disturbance

A perfect location especially if you are first time in Stockholm. It is within a walking distance from the central station, harbour, Gamla Stan and other city attractions, you just follow the street from the harbour and in less than 10 minutes you are at the hotel. I did not need to use the public transport at all!
The neighbourhood is very elegant with the best shops in the city. There is a lovely park across the street. Staff is very accommodating and helpful. I got a last minute hotel deal and they still gave me the type of the room that I preferred. Breakfast is very good, apart form the usual food you can enjoy Swedish specialities. My single room was small, but it had everything I needed, and the bed was large and very comfortable.
I would definitely come back.

This hotel is a great little find! Centrally located it is an easy walk to the harbour, old town, main shopping area and pretty much wherever you want to get to...
The nearest Tunnelbana is approx 5 mins walk away - be careful as the exit takes you to a completely different street - makes navigation a little tricksy but good fun...
The trick with this hotel is to ask for a larger room... costs a little more but at least you can swing a cat...
Yes it is a little dated but that is part of its charm, warm, friendly, clean and quiet.... perfect!

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room! Sorry no pool just couldnt undo that bit x

A somewhat dated hotel in a very good location next to Stureplan. The rooms are very small with dull interior. But the bed was nice and I really appreciated the quiet room, not always easy to find in central Stockholm.

The breakfast buffet was below average for a hotel in Sweden.
