We booked a junior suite "with a view". The best water views are in the "main" hotel building facing the water but the rooms are spread over 3 buildings and the first room we were given was located behind the main building with a view of the roof adjacent and the back of the main building. We asked for a room overlooking the water and housekeeping was expedited to prepare such a room. Frankly, the first room was larger and laid out more efficiently but the better view was our preference.
The decor was a little dated but seemed to be well maintained. The closet consisted of two
swing out doors with hanging rods on either side and wire baskets for shoes, etc. Unfortunately it was located directly across from the bathroom in a very narrow hallway leaving little circulation space when the closet doors were open and a conflict when the bathroom door opened out. There were two shallow built in drawers under the TV for additional storage. The coffee service, minibar, etc were compactly built in as well. Rather than a small desk there was a round table wasn't as functional and took up more floor space. A desk chair, recliner with ottoman and a second ottoman (which was not very functional and ate up space) completed the furnishings in the bedroom.
The bathroom was quite small with no storage, but a 10" ledge along one wall to set toiletries. I will agree with a former comment regarding access to the tub/shower. The tub surround is quite wide making it difficult to climb in and out. Could create a dangerous situation for the
infirm or elderly. There was only one outlet located about 5' up the wall and 5' from the sink/mirror making use of the hairdryer a little challenging.
The lounge area of the suite was characterless but fitted out with a sofa (hideabed?) two unmatched chairs, cocktail table and large screen TV.
We will compliment the hotel on its soundproofing. There were no external noises from either the outside or hallway to disturb us.
We had access to the Executive Lounge on the 4th floor in the main building which was a
nice benefit. A breakfast buffet was served each morning; soft drinks, coffee and snacks available during the day and an evening "happy hour" with complimentary wine, cava, liquor/mixes and cold and hot appetizers was offered. Both lounge and dining seating were available and, during happy hour, every seat was filled. The lounge staff were efficient and congenial.
Housekeeping was generally good with only a few minor glitches. And the desk staff was quite congenial and helpful, but seemed to be overwhelmed at check-in and check-out.
The location is great as it bridges Gamla Stan to the north and SoFo, a quieter, trendy neighborhood to the south. We spent more time in SoFo as it was more "real" than either the City Center or Gamla Stan.
Overall, our stay was okay but if we returned to Stockholm we would seek other lodgings.
