This is a very interesting hotel. It's sparsely, but neatly decorated throughout. The rooms are not as small as you would imagine, good bathroom, tv and wifi (if you can get a signal). Staff are helpful and courteous, the entire hotel is very clean. Hot breakfast was much more than I expected, and the early morning or late night view from the dining room is just lovely.
Downsides are - wifi could use a boost (at least in the bottom level rooms), walls are thin (bring ear plugs just in case you have rowdy neighbours).
The hotel is about 10-15min walk to the central train station. It's walking distance to all the Gamla Stan sights, and honestly within walking distance to most things you'll want to check out in the city - could be Stockholm is just a very walkable city.
Back to the hotel - I recommend this to anyone looking for a non-boring/conventional hotel - it's a must-see even if you don't stay here.
