The good :- Breakfast/staff/location
The bad :- renovation work / noise from outside
Having always wanted to go to Stockholm and stay here I was disappointed, like the below reviewer renovation work in reception spoils the first impression and I was not made aware of it before my arrival (even thou I had booked the hotel on a pre paid rate back in 2013 to get it cheaper).
Opted for a larger room with a window, and we were lucky to have good weather so on the top floor it was windows open to get air in, but during the night, EVERY night being on the side of the hotel we were awaken at 5am most mornings with what I can only say were delivery trucks reversing down the side of the hotel (room 752) if this was for the renovations I'm surprised the hotel could not arrange them at a better time, then on the last night something was going on at 1.15AM - the worse thing is the hotel is next to central station and none of this noise was train related.
This is why I'm only giving the hotel 3 out of 5 as a score....lets hope its gets better soon because....
On a positive note the hotel is ideally situated by central station and is a very short walk from the Arlanda express terminal , and just a short walk to T-Bann station or walk to Gamla Stan in the old town....plenty of food options around and coffee shops.
The breakfast was vast for a european "included" breakfast and meant you can get a good start to the day.
Free wifi in the room, 1 free PC in reception ideal for checking in for the flight home, nice showers with good quality gel. all what you expect - but that first impression lasts sadly and that is renovation in reception !
Also the name is changing, from Nordic Sea to Nordic C - does it really need the name change - you decide.....
Would I go back ? maybe - but i would expect a lot more than what I got for the price - otherwise I'm afraid I'd stay elsewhere
